“You know, I forgot he was black tonight for an hour.” Chris Matthews
Racist Chris Matthews admits he thinks of President Obama as black almost all the time. Chris Matthews just can’t stop thinking about the color of people’s skin. What an admission, even for a racist like Matthews! Who cares what color his skin is? My heavens, get over it, no one cares about his skin color, we care about policies and their impact on liberty, the Constitution and the Country.
“I was trying to think about who he was tonight. It’s interesting: he is post-racial, by all appearances. I forgot he was black tonight for an hour. You know, he’s gone a long way to become a leader of this country, and past so much history, in just a year or two. I mean, it’s something we don’t even think about. I was watching, I said, wait a minute, he’s an African American guy in front of a bunch of other white people. And here he is president of the United States and we’ve completely forgotten that tonight — completely forgotten it. I think it was in the scope of his discussion. It was so broad-ranging, so in tune with so many problems, of aspects, and aspects of American life that you don’t think in terms of the old tribalism, the old ethnicity. It was astounding in that regard. A very subtle fact. It’s so hard to talk about. Maybe I shouldn’t talk about it, but I am. I thought it was profound that way.” Chris Matthews
To Chris Matthews: Just because you are focused on the color of someone’s skin, does NOT mean the rest of us are. Get over the entire skin color thing. Try this: “For a minute there, I forgot he had brown eyes.” Doesn’t that just sound stupid and ignorant? What do you expect from MSNBC and Chris Matthews.
