"shoot the monkey"
Obama's election has created a "new" sensitivity (meaning the media attends to it) toward racist notions. White guys just wanna have fun is over or at least on life support. Goodie for something nowadays. The fun part of course are the verbal stumblings from those who don't know this and carry on like McCain won. SHAME ON YOU! I want to dedicate this space to these stumblings if only for laughs but hopefully with a deeper more intellectualized (read boring) notion of how this affects how we play together. I'm collecting "shoot the monkey" moments in political speech in honor of our friends the New York Post and by calling it that allows me to ironically enter the first one. To demonstrate equality let's also hear from those who have found an "air Holder" moment for those who have the courage, no guts, to speak about race honestly, whatever that means? Maybe we'll find out! So let me hear from you!
