BTW, thank you for the setup, however unintentional. :D
Magic Negro did not originate with lacarnut or Rush Limbaugh
Obama the 'Magic Negro'
The Illinois senator lends himself to white America's idealized, less-than-real black man.
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 .
Wow. 11 pages on this non-issue.
Wake me in ten minutes when it's yesterdays news.
He's also desparate for the "Bradley Effect" to kick in so that McCain can somehow win PA and NJ (:eek: Riiiight! :D). He's as racist as they come and it's apparent for all to see here.
I also "don't fail" to see how condescending you are to almost everyone here on CU.
Don't you realize how obnoxious you seem?
Powell is a turncoat; not because he is supporting Obama but because he blasted the Republicians Party when he was given many promotions by Republician Presidents going back to Ronald Reagan. I feel the same way about Dick Morris. Both are ungrateful ingrates.
