Black people are dumb. They are really, really, dumb. They are as dumb as White People, Yellow People, Green People, Red People, etc., etc. We wrote “Dumb White Peoplel” in March 2008, so now with race and race-baiting so much in the news, it’s time for equal opportunity laughter at Dumb Black People.
In “Dumb White People” we singled out as examples Andrew Sullivan and John Kerry. Oh, how stupid they are and how we have laughed at them through the years. Andrew Sullivan and John Kerry thought the world would change because an African-American, a Black man, a half-Black, half-White guy took George W. Bush’s third term. We warned those lunkheads that naivete in world affairs would not work (“an administration of lies” says Ahmadinejad of “no preconditions” Obama boobery) and that:
“Osama Bin Laden does not care at all if you are African-American, Jewish-American, Irish-American, White-American, Chinese-American, Indian-American, etc. All Osama Bin Laden cares about is that you are American. Then Osama will kill you. Or try to kill you. Osama Bin Laden is post-racial. Kill Americans. It’s that simple. Osama, does not care if you are black or white, ebony or ivory.”
We confess, in moments of undiluted misanthropy we wish Black People would disappear from the entire planet – along with White People, Yellow People, Green People, Red People, etc., etc. Let’s turn the place over to dogs, and cats, and birds, and roaches. Down with people – up with our furry and feathered friends. But we digress.
Mind, not all Black People are dumb, just as not all White People are dumb (ditto the rest of the list). But for Barack Obama the dumb came out of the woodwork, the lemmings ran away from the smart.
Let’s laugh at dumb Princeton professor Cornel West. He has a master’s degree, rather, a doctorate in dumb. Try reading this and not laugh at our dumb black brother:
“Princeton professor (and spoken-word artist) Cornel West has never been shy about publicly sharing his views, whether about race in America, Obama’s Nobel Prize or animal rights. He talks to Playboy for its August issue and is typically candid about what’s going on today with the tea party movement, Barack Obama, FLOTUS and more. [snip]
On what President Obama is doing wrong: “While he’s made some good, positive changes, I don’t think he’s a messiah or even a very progressive politician. It turns out when you talk about hope, you have to be a long-distance runner.”
On Michelle Obama: “I think she’s got a lot of Malcolm X in her, a lot of Ella Baker. [snip]
On “whitewashing within [the Obama] administration”: “What happened to the black elites inside Obama’s campaign, Valerie Jarrett, John Rogers and Eric Whitaker? They’re practically invisible or gone. Instead Obama has a savvy political team — brother [David] Axelrod, Bbrother David Plouffe, brother Robert Gibbs, brother [Rahm] Emanuel — who are eperts at PR. … Black folk can’t be blindsided by Obama’s pigmentation and historical symbolism. What I’m saying is I wish he could be more Martin Luther King-like. … But by necessity, Obama has had to downplay his blackness to appease the white moderates and independents and speak to their anxieties.”
Poor dumb ol’ Cornel. Now he realizes Obama is not “a messiah” nor “a very progressive politician.” These facts did not stop the dumb ol’ progressive from Princeton from endorsing Barack Obama.
As to Michelle “got a lot of Malcolm X in her”, Michelle has all the ugly anger of Malcolm but none of his commitment to community, none of his (often misplaced) strength, none of his history of hard work and intellectual curiosity, none of his ability to question others and himself, none of his ability to learn and grow. Michelle does however have the friendship of Malcolm’s likely killer “the Honorable Louis Farrakhan”. Michelle Obama is more “Malcolm In The Middle” than Michelle X (if you ignore the scowl of her anger). And Ella Baker she surely is not unless we revise Ella Baker into a self-interested, self-obsessed, self-promoting, arugula eating Chicago thug.
Now, the above is Grade A “dumb” but it is this following sentence which catapults Cornel West into “Dumb Black People” status:
“On his current relationship with Obama:
“He doesn’t return my calls. … I did 65 events for my dear brother Barack on the campaign trail but have not seen him since Martin Luther King Day 2008. … I couldn’t even get a ticket to the Inauguration for my mother. … I think he has the kind of disposition where he just moves on.”
Grade AAA dumb. West, the great intellectual from Princeton only now realizes Obama “has the kind of disposition where he just moves on.” That has to go down as one of the funniest/dumbest statements ever. Alice Palmer learned Obama can’t be trusted – he just moves on – and you find yourself under the bus. The Obama stabs in the back are many.
Dumb and Black Cornel West, along with other Dumb Black People (aided and abetted by Dumb White People), fooled themselves into beating themselves. They voted skin color and the skin is now burned by Barack Obama. We wrote it repeatedly: Obama will hurt his supporters the most.
“No, we are not talking about losers like Daschle, Richardson, Kerry. Nor do we refer to the those writhing under the Obama bus like Chris Dodd or Jeremiah Wright.
We are talking about young people and African-American supporters who were ever so fervent in their religious worship of Obama.”
The garbage scow that writes for the New York Times found a ‘Dumb Black People’ to state what we at Big Pink indeed did know – although the ‘Dumb Black People’ of the Dowd article appears surprised by what was ever so obvious:
“Who knew that the first black president would make it even harder on black people?” asked a top black Democratic official.”
We knew, that’s who. We knew and we wrote about it back in 2007:
“What use was Obama’s “community organizer” experience to those shivering tenants?
What use was Obama the state senator to those shivering tenants?
What relationships did Obama build during his “community organizer” days that proved useless when he became state senator, and failed to keep him in touch with the community?
What was Obama doing in his plush state senator office that kept him too busy to know that these “struggling families” were without heat “For more than five weeks during the brutal winter of 1997″?
If Obama with all his “community organizer” experience did not know what was happening in his small district office in Chicago, how in blazes does anyone think he will respond to the needs of an American electorate that numbers in the hundreds of millions?[snip]
When it came time to defend the defenseless or protect and enrich the powerful. Obama made a decision. He protected his powerful friends and provided them with even more government money. Same old Chicago politics. The poor shivered in cold tenements. Obama bought a new house. Now he wants a bigger White House to entertain his Chicago friends.”
It is no mystery why we knew Obama would hurt African-Americans and the young – it’s what he has always done. Obama “moves on” after he has used you.
The garbage scow at the Times and the professor from Princeton are nothing in their dumbness compared to – James Clyburn of South Carolina. Dear old race-baiting James Clyburn. What is the race-baiting Clyburn saying now? Is Clyburn still race-baiting Bill Clinton? No. Clyburn sees White People.
Clyburn takes the Dumb Black People magisterial magisterium award for this profundity:
“The president’s getting hurt real bad,” Clyburn told me. “He needs some black people around him.”
Paging Sista Michelle X. Michelle X, cancel that luxury trip to Spain (the one you schemed to go on but you knew you first had to go to dumb ol’ Florida or you’d be criticized for all the vacations you’re taking even as you say you are “not far removed” from American suffering). The brother from Hawaii needs your inner Sista Souljah. He’s exhausted with the job. It’s no longer fun. It’s work.
Stop Michelle X from more vacations. With her scowl and Lanvin sneakers she will appeal to the race-baiters and fight the Uncle Toms.
Damn those Uncle Toms who didn’t drink the Hopium. Damn those Uncle Toms who voted character not skin color. Damn those Uncle Toms who are proud to be Americans. Damn those Uncle Toms who proved to be so smart they never did and never will vote for the flim-flam man from Chicago. Damn those Uncle Toms who turn out to be so smart. Damn those Smart Black People. Get rid of them all.
The last thing Michelle X and Barack Obama want to see is Smart Black People.
