Baracist Obama

First of all, just to make this idiot-proof to people who think I run around screaming the N-word:

I’m not saying I agree with the guy in this Dustinland. I’m making fun of him. I’m saying it’s ironic when racist people complain about racism.

Now, I didn’t want to post this comic. I drew it last weekend right after this whole situation first happened. I heard on the news: a black professor was arrested because he got angry when a white cop hassled him about entering his own home. A reporter asked Obama. He said, “sounds like the cop acted stupidly.” Of course it became a big deal. And I KNEW IT. I KNEW what these assholes would say. The whole reverse racism thing. It’s so predictable, it’s pathetic. So, after drinking a few beers, while on vacation, I sat by a lake and drew this comic. But then I figured, hey, this whole thing will just blow over. No need to ever post it.

But nooooooooo. Of course it has to keep going and going, with assholes like Glenn Beck going on FOX and not even beating around the bush — just calling Obama a straight up racist.

You know, if you don’t like black people, just say it. I would respect you more. Join the fucking KKK. At least be honest about it. Then we can have a real discussion. But what I really can’t stand are racists who hide behind this thin coat of bullshit. These are the same people who complain: “How come black people can say the word ‘nigger’ but white people can’t?” Why, do you want to say it that badly? Yes, yes you do, and everyone knows it.

Holy shit, how can this situation be an issue? I’m white and if a cop started giving me shit about getting into my own house, I’d get pissed. If I was black I’d be double pissed. It doesn’t matter if the cop’s intentions were racist or not. What matters is that from the point of view of a black person, it’s “Oh, because I’m black I can’t live in a nice house, I must be trying to break in.” Maybe the guy overreacted. Hell, maybe he’s a total asshole. Either way, the dude had a reason to be angry, and most definitely did not deserve to be arrested — that is for sure. So Obama hears about it and says it sounds like the cop acted stupidly. “OH NO! WHAT A RACIST! If it was a black cop who arrested a white cop, he’d never call him stupid!” Man, you can just feel it — these people love this shit. They are so angry, they have so much hatred, they just wait for instances like this to pop up so they can rant and rave and focus all that pent up misery in one place.

Man, I am sick of it. It’s just boring at this point more than anything. Boring and predictable, and I wish I didn’t feel like I had to put this comic up but sadly I still do.

  1. Obama said “Cambridge police” not just this one cop acted “stupidly.” What a dumb thing for the president to say.

    Also, this whole black people having a chip on their shoulder is so hackneyed and blatantly dumb that it is the subject of effective satire.

    This clip gets really good at 1:09 –

  2. The last panel of this week’s DL was priceless.

    To add to what you wrote in this blog post, I feel that the blame or focus on this has rarely been placed on the person who actually made the call to the police in the first place. A white woman sees an elderly black man try to get into his own house (and she’s his friggin’ neighbor??? What? How could she not recognize him?), panics and calls the cops.

  3. To anonymous: So getting mad when a cop interrogates you about entering your own house is having a chip on your shoulder? Are you telling me you wouldn’t be mad if it happened to you?

  4. Who knows what I’d do? I’d like to think I would just pull out my license and say something like “Here you go d*ckhead, now kindly get the f*ck off my property” but I might have just decided to be an idiot and rant and rave too… I’m not really sure… The problem here is… the guy never should have claimed racial profiling… the cop never should have arrested him…and the president shouldn’t have said a damn thing… as far as Glen Beck goes… he’s a hack and a coward. He wouldn’t call Obama a racist if facing him, and won’t present any real evidence to prove it. Of course, Fox News isn’t exactly fair or balanced journalism… it certainly got blown out of proportion, and the fact that that this Sudsgate ever happened is idiotic… who cared?

  5. To Ezan: The woman who called 911 was not a neighbor, but someone who worked in the area and didn’t know Gates. If I saw someone forcing his way into a house (the door was stuck, so Gates had to ram it with his shoulder), I’d do the same thing unless I knew for sure he belonged there. It’s not the woman’s fault that that dumbass cop went off the rails.

  6. BS, you’re right. I shouldn’t have made that kind of statement without full knowledge of the facts. Thanks.
