Good luck have a serious discussion when you refer to the President of the United States as a Black Wizard.

    Magic Negro' returns
    March 19, 2007|David Ehrenstein, L.A.-based DAVID EHRENSTEIN writes about Hollywood and politics.

    AS EVERY CARBON-BASED life form on this planet surely knows, Barack Obama, the junior Democratic senator from Illinois, is running for president. Since making his announcement, there has been no end of commentary about him in all quarters -- musing over his charisma and the prospect he offers of being the first African American to be elected to the White House.But it's clear that Obama also is running for an equally important unelected office, in the province of the popular imagination -- the "Magic Negro."

    The Magic Negro is a figure of postmodern folk culture, coined by snarky 20th century sociologists, to explain a cultural figure who emerged in the wake of Brown vs. Board of Education. "He has no past, he simply appears one day to help the white protagonist," reads the description on Wikipedia http://en.-wikipedia.org/wiki/Magical_Negro.

    But the reality is probably that some Conservatives do hate Obama while most of them dont. Unfortunately, as the title of the original article suggests, as it becomes more mainstream to hate the government it will almost unquestionably result in more people going past just being dissatisfied.
    I did not bring up the word hate; you initially did.

    What did you mean by your statement that you were a little dissatisfied with government? Sounds like a liberal to me. Are you for the health care bill, TARP, bailout 1 & 2? Also, explain what government has done that pleases you.

    If you do not like Obama being called the Magic Negro, tough shit. Your buddies in the liberal media conned that phrase so get off your high horse.

    FYI, the title of the article is inappropriate; it is an eye catcher for sure but does NOT represent the material in the article. You should learn how to read.

    Looks like you are wrong again. Calling him the Messiah offends me. So, you need gather up your hatred toward the liberal media.

    But you miss the point. Rush Limbaugh and the conservatives are MOCKING the double standard when we use this term.

    This jerk never got called on his racism, until Rush pointed it out, and the left wing media portrays it as if RUSH were calling Obama the magic negro.

    That is simply a LIE.

    As I said earlier, he was mocking the double standard.

    Where did I say I was offended? I said it was juvenile.

    The article brought up the word hate.

    I was for healthcare feform, not the monstrosity that passed though. TARP was OK, that money has to be eventually paid back. The bailouts set a bad precedent, by far the worst pieces of legislation passed during the Obama presidency.

    Its not that I dont like him being called that (I admittedly dont), but if you have legitimate grievances you want people to take seriously prefacing them with a racial charged nickname for the President is not a good way to broadcast them. It desecrates the people like myself who prefer to combat the presidents policies with some respect and dignity for the office he holds.

    yes it was one writer, but that writer is just as responsible for the newspapers image as the paper itself is. He was also and editorial and it the editorial section that endorses a candidate.

    and what ConstitutionallySpeaking says is correct. Rush used it to showcase the Lefts double standard and has said as much on MULTIPLE occasions.

    Its hard to for Rush Limbaugh to say the media doesn't call things out. He is a pretty big part of the media, look at the ratings.
