Americans to Vote for White Guy?!

May 15, 2012

We are beginning to see more national surveys now, including this week’s New York Times/CBS News poll, which show Mitt Romney with a slight lead over President Obama in the general election matchup.

Let's hope not! Imagine an electorate that votes, not on the issues, but on the skin color of a candidate! Merde alors!

It reminds, me, really, of the Naked Gun movie when Det. Dreben (Leslie Neilson) tells O.J. (the murderer) in regards to boxing: "Never bet on the white guy!"

Let's hope such shallow though-processes and reasoning adopted from an epic comedy haven't now found themselves into American voting patterns!

Maybe white boys are not as bad as we thought, though. Let's hope not! If they elect Romney "White House" might garner an entire new meaning!

Somehow, I can hear the Rev. Wright rolling thunder again: "G-D America! G-D America! Done put them white boys back at the front of the bus!!"

(With apologies to the O12 team!)

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
