Matt Bors for August 08, 2008
Being a black guy with a funny name in America used to mean you were a newly arrived slave waiting in line to have your identity stripped. Man: Your new name is "BOY"! These days, if you use it as a self-deprecating ice breaker you're called an uppity race baiter. Barack Obama: I got a funny name and big ears, folks. No need to be frightened. Oh, here we go! RACE CARD! Back in the day, not looking like the guys on the dollar bills meant you had to stay indoors after dark. Running Man: You could attract a larger crowd than BRITNEY SPEARS! Man #1: Git him! Man #2: Hang 'em! Today, casually mention that you're a black man and suddenly you're shoving race down everyone's throat. HOPE Walter: And how's come THEY get to say "nigger" but I CAN'T? Man: The privileged elite make the rules, Walter. IT'S TYRANNY!
