What’s that you say, Piers?
What’s that which Barack Obama, son of a white woman from Kansas, recently said? (Trigger warning: impending racial slur used by the POTUS.)
Racism, we are not cured of it. And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public.
Would Piers jail only the white half of Obama? Or perhaps might Obama get only half the jail time that another white person would deserve, in the not-so-humble opinion of Piers?
What about “white Hispanics”? Would they deserve jail time, too? Asians? How about Native Americans?
What if blacks who descend from slave owners (like Obama’s ancestors of either color) use the n-word? Do they deserve jail, too?
What about blacks or other (trigger warning: impending microaggression) persons of color who use the words (trigger warning: impending offensive racial/ethnic slurs) Cracker, Kike, Dago, Jerry, Wop, Jack, Bog-trotter, Cat-lick, Carrot top, Hillbilly, Mick, Wetback, Mojado, Chink, Banana, Whitey, Raghead, ad infinitum? You got the picture.
Of course, where Piers comes from there’s no First Amendment, nor is there a Fourteenth Amendment, which may explain his totalitarian, very backwards state of mind. Maybe we should just ban him from the country. He offends me.
