Larry Johnson Knows Black People

This is some racist shit, right here:

So, by declaring that Barack–the man with a white mother and white grandparents–is talking down to “black” folk, are you ready to make the case that Barack is a honky hiding as a black man. Man up, dude. Just admit that for you told the truth and you liked how it felt. Made my day.

Let’s face it. Jesse Jackson is from Chicago and knows Chicago politics. He knows Barack–good and bad. And today Jesse was pointing out the fact that when it comes to the African American community Barack is a poseur. He is not really leading black people or fighting on their behalf; and he is certainly not ready to lead America.

[Bold mine]

Like Ralph Nader before him, Larry Johnson of Obama-hate site No Quarter knows what’s best for African-Americans.  Worse than Nader, though, he also supposes himself to be an arbiter of blackness.  Flowbee, from his privileged enlightened position as a middle-aged white man apparently is best positioned to determine who is “black enough” and who is not, and he’s found the presumptive Democratic nominee wanting.

PUMAs seem to think that it’s only racism if someone uses the n-word, so obviously no one will be rushing to remove No Quarter from their blogrolls anytime soon (check around the PUMAsphere, NQ is on every single blogroll).  If PUMAs want to stop being unfairly tarred as racists, they would do well to not associate with racists! Or, as the Specials say:

    I can’t imagine you understand the damage you’re doing, because I’ve read a lot of your stuff, and you seem like a pretty cool guy. By casually throwing around the most heinous charges of racism and bigotry, especially when it is a cynical ploy to prop up your seriously damaged candidate, you are debasing the real offenses that people like me have suffered at the hands of bigots and small minded people all my life. I find it offensive and shameful. Just my $.02.

    Gary, I regret if I implied that you or any of the posters at the Confluence were racists, that was not at all what I intended to convey. Despite our many disagreements, I actually admire the Confluence for its stated policy of not dealing in the smears that are going about the internet If I didn’t make that clear enough, I apologize.

    However, everything on NQ is vile, disgusting, and yes, racist, and I cannot honestly believe that you would deign to defend it. My point is that by associating yourself and your site which such filth, you do yourself and your movement no favors.

  3. […] This guy even suggested that I believe that anything less than the use of the “n-word” is not racist.  Not that I feel the need to defend myself, but think of it this way:  Right wing christians voted for Bush by almost the same margins as African Americans voted for Obama.   In return for that support, Bush owed them something, right?  That’s how we got the gay marriage amendment, faith based initiatives and a whole host of other horrible considerations for this one monolithic voting block.  Is it racist to ask why a candidate who gets that kind of support does not respond to the wants and needs of that block? At the very least, shouldn’t he avoid “talking down to black people” as Jesse Jackson so ineloquently suggested?

    “the man with a white mother and white grandparents”

    How could you have a white mother and _not_ have white grandparents?
