I delight in seeing liberals get embarrassed by their own racial hyper-sensitivity and the same political correctness to which they insist the rest of us adhere. That's why this story about Obama, the "post-racial candidate", stupidly asking a delegate to step down because of her presumptive racial thought crime, is so telling. Apparently this caucasion delegate called out to some black kids climbing in trees near her house to "stop climbing in the trees like monkeys". She says she feared for their safety if they fell out. She also regularly calls her own kids monkeys when they do things like climb in trees.
Well, you can imagine the outrage on behalf of the post-racial candidate Obama. Rather than give her the benefit of the doubt as any sane, reasonable person would do, he asked her to step down as a delegate because there's the slimmest of chances she could have been referring to them as monkeys because they're black. In effect, she's being punished for something she may or may not have been thinking at the time, because a minority somewhere nuanced a racial insult from an otherwise innocuous statement. Is this what an Obama presidency would do? Usher in a new era of thought-crime legislation in which the term "monkey" is removed from the lexicon because it hurts some peoples' feelings?
Apparently, only white kids can be called monkeys when they climb in trees, eat bananas, and fling their poo.
