It’s worse than we thought; even the Wons are frequent victims of racial injustice according to People magazine - The Obamas: How We Deal with Our Own Racist Experiences. In the article, Big Guy claims he’s been mistaken for a valet and Lady M said he has also been mistaken for a waiter.
Some say he’s been mistaken for a President:
Butt I think we all know who the real president is around here:
And it’s not just BO who has to deal with racism every day; MO relates to People her own tales of victimhood:
"I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn't see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn't anything new."
It may not be new, butt it sure is a new twist on an old story:
I’d like to file a protest on behalf of short people against this sort of humor: #ShortPeoplesLivesMatter
So let’s stipulate to the fact that mistakes were made. Depending on who they happen to however will determine whether or not they are racist. Take that unfortunate little mix up with Val Jar and the 4-Star General back in 2011. I covered the incident in They Also Serve Who Only Stand and Wait:
…a tiny little faux pas the other night involving Big Guy’s trusted Chicago advisor, ValJar.
You know the old saying “To a hammer, every problem looks like a nail?” Well, it looks like it has a corollary: “To an imperialist, every uniform looks like a waiter.”
Ok, Ok, it’s true. Val did ask a decorated US General to fetch her a glass of wine at a black tie dinner. Butt for goodness sake let’s take all of the circumstances into consideration before we jump to conclusions. For starters, the affair was held at the Alfalfa Club. The Alfalfa Club!? Isn’t that just a little racist?
Furthermore, Val worked hard to become an advisor to the Won: how about we just show her a little respect here.
And to be fair, had Big Guy been there, he likely would have thought the Corpseman looked like a waiter too. Racism has a way of making you view everything as a victim, which leads you to believe you are entitled to reparations, which naturally makes everyone your vassal.
So I hope you can see that this whole little mistake had nothing to do with elitism, and everything to do with racism. Butt there you go, making Val the victim all over again. Shame on you.
According to a tipster who reported the “situation” to the Daily Caller, this is what happened:
…According to our tipster, Jarrett was seated at the head table along with several other big-name politicians and a handful of high-ranking military officials. As an officer sporting several stars walked past Jarrett, she signaled for his attention and said, “I’d like another glass of wine.”
“The guy dutifully went up and got her a glass of wine, and then came back and gave it to her and took a seat at the table,” our tipster said. “Everyone is in tuxedos and gowns at this thing, but the military people are in full dress uniform.”
Thank goodness that controversy blew over with barely a whisper. I mean, a BLACK woman mistaking a WHITE military general as a waiter? How does THAT fit our narrative of racist America? Maybe racism is just racism whether it’s in “reverse” or going FORWARD!?
Anyway, I’ve got to run; I’ve got another mess to clean up on aisle 6. Apparently there’s been a little fall out from Big Guy’s latest end run around the Constitution and Congress.
Using his phone to call the Castro brothers, and his pen to “normalize” relations with Cuba seems to have shaken a few people up. Most likely the fallout is just due to the fact that he’s black. That’s how things are in post-colonial America. It won’t stop BHO however, he will proceed with his plans to "leave behind the legacy of colonization and Communism."
I’m not so sure about the colonialism, butt I sure do see a trail of Communism in BHO’s historic wake.
So let’s lighten up out there! Everyone makes mistakes! It isn’t always racist.
To paraphrase Freud: “Sometimes a mistake is just a mistake.”
