Obama Gave the Media an Option. We See Which One They Chose.

Apparently there's a "new" controversy:

Fox news has been bashing away at Obama for a comment he made on WIP a Philadelphia sports radio station:
"The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, there's a reaction that's been bred into our experiences that don't go away, and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that's just the nature of race in our society.
He said "typical white person" which is apparently proof that he thinks all white people are racists and that he doesn't like white people....blah, blah, blah....


I Remember this from Tuesday:
For we have a choice in this country. We can accept a politics that breeds division, and conflict, and cynicism. We can tackle race only as spectacle....We can do that. But if we do, I can tell you that in the next election, we'll be talking about some other distraction. And then another one. And then another one. And nothing will change. That is one option. Or, at this moment, in this election, we can come together and say, “Not this time.”
Now I may argue that "typical white person" may have been the wrong choice of words. But damn, we ask politicians to be honest, but unless they parse their words carefully we're all over them. Instead of taking a smart adult look at was said, we're ready to accuse Obama of all manner of hateful beliefs/thoughts. Now I know "reasonable" and "adult" can't be used in the same sentence regarding Faux News, but enough is enough already.

On a related note. Field Negro saw this coming:

But as word of his comments gets out to white A-merry-ca, I can sense the controversy coming ---I know it will if FAKE NEWS has their way--- and once again, it won't be pretty.
So no. To answer Obama's question from Tuesday, we don't want to move on. We want to stay right where we are; in this "racial stalemeate" that has done nothing but destroy this country for, well, forever. We don't want better. We want the same ol' same ol'. Even though we're not in a position where we can afford the same ol' politics, as it is costing us jobs, are standing in the world, and killing our economy; people prefer their bigotry to a new day, a new way of doing, seeing and understanding our Country. Our America. And to be honest with you I don't even mind. After Tuesday's speech I realized I won't be upset if Barack Obama doesn't win the Presidency. At this point I realize, America will get the leadership it deserves.

Here's Fox News bashing Obama and Chris Wallace finally stepping in to say enough is enough.
