Rush Limbaugh: Barack the magic Negro
The problem, Ehrenstein says, is he’s not real. Al Sharpton’s real, Snoop Dogg is real, but Barack Obama is not real. He’s just there to assuage white guilt. In other words, the only reason Obama is anywhere is because whites are willing to support him because they feel so guilty over slavery. Now, before you reject this, Shelby Steele has written a great book about the whole concept of ‘White Guilt’ and how it is allowing our society to become more and more passive about any number of transgressions that the country has made from its inception. Here’s the close: ‘Like a comic-book superhero, Obama is there to help, out of the sheer goodness of a heart we need not know or understand. For as with all Magic Negroes, the less real he seems, the more desirable he becomes. If he were real, white America couldn’t project all its fantasies of curative black benevolence on him.’
So, those of you white people out there who are supporting Barack Obama, you are racists. That is the point that David Ehrenstein is making. You’re attempting to assuage all of your white guilt by supporting Obama, is worthless, because you’re just exhibiting racism because you know he’s not a ‘real black.’ As Biden said, he’s ‘clean,’ and ‘articulate.’ What else did he say? Good-looking, articulate, one of the first. But he’s not real. This is more of the drivel and the bilge that we get from the Drive-By Media. In order to be a real black, you gotta be a Sharpton or you’ve gotta be a Snoop Dogg. You gotta be a Ludacris or something like that. Obama can’t possibly fill this role because nobody knows anything about him and we don’t want to know anything about him. The only thing that matters is he’s black and he sounds good and it allows you white racists to assuage your guilt. There is white racism out there, much of it is on the left where the plantation mentality still resides.
‘Now, let me ask you a question. The term ‘magic negro’ has been thrown into the political presidential race and the mix for 2008, and the term magic negro, as applied to Barack Obama, has been done by an LA Times columnist David Ehrenstein. Do you think, if I keep referring to Obama as ‘the magic negro’ from this day on, I will eventually get the credit and/or heat for this? Magic negro. It is a term, and it’s exactly as described here. Its purpose is to allow whites the guilt-free support. But in Barack’s case, it’s only because he isn’t a ‘real black.’ The LA Times, by the way, is not first with these types of columns. The LA Times has two or three columns like this: ‘Is Barack Obama Black Enough?’ And so forth. So there’s a racist component out there on the editorial page of the LA Times that’s obsessed with the race of Barack Obama — and as with all leftists, while they are obsessed with race, they’re accusing everybody else of being racists.
