Give Us This Day Our Daily Race-Baiting Idiots

Scorecards out, kids!

Time to add another "secret Republican code word" to the list of seemingly innocuous words that are, in "reality", vile, racist hate speech.

Today's entry: professor

[Harvard professor Charles J.] Ogletree, founding and executive director of the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice, says he sees the “professor” label as a thinly veiled attack on Obama’s race. Calling Obama “the professor” walks dangerously close to labeling him “uppity,” a term with racial overtones that has surfaced in the political arena before, Ogletree said.


Thomas L. Haskell, a professor emeritus of history at Rice University, agrees that racial bias may be implicit in the attack on Obama’s professorial past.

“For me and a lot of other academic types, we identify with Obama precisely because he is an intellectual,” Haskell says. “But what does that mean to John Q. Public? I don’t know. John Q. Public may be frightened of these people, especially because this particular intellectual is a black.

And parents are paying these race-baiting Janeane Garfalo fanboys good money to instill wisdom in the young, impressionable minds of their offspring.
