Quote of the Day: But remember, blacks can’t be racist edition

If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times – blacks can’t be "racists". Supposedly its because they "don’t have the power" to be racist. A key redefinition of a word that in reality has zip to do with who holds power.  It’s an attitude.  A belief in the superiority of one race over the other.  But that’s now how many try to define it today.

So, given the new definition of racism,  what former DC mayor and present DC Council person Marion Barry says here isn’t racist or racially motivated … got it?  You can ask Al Sharpton, he’ll back him up.

“We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops,” Barry said in remarks first reported by WRC-TV. “They ought to go. I’m going to say that right now. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.”

Celebrate diversity and racial healing, ya’ll.
