Just How Black Is Black And White?

I’ve never been to a “black” barbershop. Honestly don’t even know where one exists. If one of my African American friends came to town and asked me directions to one, they would have to settle for Lady Jane’s instead (shameless plug!). Heck, I might as well admit now that I don’t even have a really good African American friend. So I might not be qualified to address ESPN’s Rob Parker and his derisive comments from Thursday’s First Take; a true bastion of bare bones discourse that our forefathers would have surely embraced.

Opinion: Obama’s 2007 Speech is Disturbingly Racist

While there’s nothing wrong with an African-American president speaking in a black dialect, there is something terribly wrong with him speaking in a black accent and cadence when undoubtedly inciting racism to a predominantly African-American audience.

Opinion: The Unreported Racism Of The 2012 Election: 0% Of African-Americans Support Romney

The media keeps suggesting that the racism regarding candidates has to do with whites not wanting to vote for a black man, even though Barack Obama won a presidential election with a great amount of white support in 2008. What the media isn’t talking about is the NBC-Wall Street survey results which say that there are basically no black supporters for the Caucasian candidate, Mitt Romney, in 2012.
