Code Words: Painting Obama as an Uppity Nigger

I'M BITTER. Representative Geoff Davis of Kentucky said, referring to Barack Obama, "That boy’s finger does not need to be on the button," and the mainstream media hasn't said much about it at all. Anybody who knows anything about American history knows that calling a Black man a boy is an expression of blatant racism which seeks to deny a Black man his humanity. In this context, boy is simply a synonym for nigger.

At the same time, Hillary Clinton, with household income of $109 million over a mere seven seven years, and John McCain, with his eight houses and a multi-millionaire wife who steals fancy recipes from the Food Network, recipes few small-town and rural working-class Pennsylvanians could afford to make, and passes them off as family recipes, are calling Obama elitist. But uppity is what they're really calling him.

It's time for a White leader to give a speech on race. Well, one who doesn't have a Black African father anyway.
