NAACP Plays Latest Race Card Against Tea Party
by John Kass
Summertime, and the race cards are easy.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson has accused the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers of racism, for treating multigazillionaire basketball star LeBron James as a “runaway slave.”
This is the same James who will become his own billion-dollar marketing franchise in South Beach. If only slavery were so sweet.
And the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People played a big race card, accusing the libertarian-leaning tea party movement of harboring racists.
Meanwhile, the political right is accusing the Obama administration of racism for dropping a complaint against a black thug with a club in the New Black Panther Party who allegedly intimidated white voters at the polls in Philadelphia.
With so many race cards in the air, any day now Attorney General Eric Holder might just accuse Americans of being cowards when it comes to race, right after we elect the first African-American president of the United States.
Oops. My bad.
That one already happened, didn’t it?
