What do you people want? Wait. Don’t answer. I already know and I’m not going to give it to you. No one can.
Earthly perfection is what you people want. The white you-people want perfect absolution; the black you-people want perfect vengeance.
Be careful what you wish for.
Denied their blanket absolution when it became obvious that Barack H. Obama wasn’t exactly Martin Luther King, Jr., some whites mumbled and even screamed the n-word–as if it just dawned on them that some black people hate them; even though the black version of Liberation Theology has existed for only a little less time than legislated federal Civil Rights and Voting Rights have–a small fraction of the lifespan of this country–and few blacks had heard of BLT until Barack Obama showed up.
Denied their vengeance, some blacks say “yeah, we knew you hated us all along,” in spite of the fact that most whites manifestly don’t hate us and many have gone against their parents, friends and communities to stand up for what’s right (in spite of the fact that those who do hate blacks have conspired to keep some of us in a more refined form of bondage—reproductive “choice” and subsidized indolence–with our own assistance). We’re not hated by all or even most whites, even in the face of how the progeny of the New Slavery continue to prey upon whites.
Along came Obama–the guy who talks post-racial and sleeps Black Power–and all the fronting ceases. All masks are dropped. And all the sh*t-fits commence. All of the players in this game wanted to be the innocent party, the wronged party. All wanted to ignore reality and history.
You people wanted the Moon and all you got was merely another flawed human to project your higher hopes and lower fantasies onto. And now you’re mad.
It’s your own fault, though; All your fault that you accepted an earthly savior.
No wonder you’ve all gone crazy. Crazier.
