Racism is OK. As long as it’s the right kind of racism.

Warren Kinsella, a self-confessed anti-racist, admits that skin colour matters to him greatly. Kinsella on Obama:

It’s time… You know… It is time. His race matters… uh… to people like me. It’s time to see somebody who is black as President of the United States…

Great reader comments from Five Feet Of Fury:

Obama’s mother is Caucasian, which means the Senator is as much a white man as he is a black man. Instead of rushing to judgment, though, we should give Kinsella the benefit of the doubt and assume that he meant to say ‘I think it’s time to see somebody who is mulatto as President of the United States’.

Personally, I think it’s time for a crippled President, as long as he’s not a Jew. I mean, just to clarify, I wouldn’t oppose someone because he’s a Jew, nor would I support someone because he’s a Jew, it’s just that America’s not ready for someone who’s both a Jew and a cripple. It’s just not time, not yet; cripples are first in line, then blacks, then Jews, then women, then mulattos, then Asians.

Mind you, if the candidate had merely converted to Judaism, and had only a slight limp, he should be given a chance, but only if ‘it’s time’, at that particular time, for that particular mixed-identity group to be next in line to get their token president
