White MSNBC Analyst: Herman Cain Is a Black Man Who Knows His Place
Update: Karen Finney Considers Herself "African-American"

Ahem. She's speaking of why the Tea Party supports him, she claims.

But she clearly thinks he "knows his place," too.

Here's a very odd bit of "analysis." The black man we're talking about has been director of a Federal Reserve Bank, a CEO, and now aspires to be President.

That's the "place" he knows he's supposed to be in? He's internalized racism so much, his ego has been so reduced by white racism, his sense of self-worth so diminished, that he now sees himself as the President of the United States of America?

Black men who "know their place" in our society know that place to be Commander in Chief?

I guess we must be doing something wrong, then.

This is why I attribute the belief to her (rather than follow her in ventriloquizing her beliefs into other's mouths). It makes no sense.

She wants to call him an Uncle Tom and/or "uppity" -- incompatible, yes, but she wants to hang some racial slur on him. And she finds that in her own fucking mind.

Not in the Tea Party's mind. And not in Herman Cain's mind, either.

So let me get this straight: The left now feels it can resort to racial slurs against black men it doesn't like by simply claiming the black man's supporters -- you know, the people who like him -- are thinking these obnoxiously racist retrograde thoughts.

Not the person actually uttering the words, who clearly despises Herman Cain! Oh no, not she. It's these other people thinking he's an uppity darky and/or Uncle Tom.

She, the person who despises him, and actually engages in filthy Jim Crow era language, is actually innocent of such thoughts.

Remember, when she calls someone an Uncle Tom or house slave she's really just telling you what other people -- racist Republicans -- are actually thinking.

Update: The Weekly Standard report I got that from (now linked above) tells me she's half-black or something and claims to be "African-American."

That seems not to be accurate -- she considers herself mixed heritage, according to this post.

So, even though she's about as black as the Andover Academy Fall Mixer, I guess she feels she's got a little extra license to toss around some racial language.

Even though there's a bit of a history of lighter-skinned blacks (or "blacks") tossing racial language at darker-skinned blacks.

Spike Lee even made a movie about it. Maybe she should check that out, and watch her mouth.
