Andrew Young, I Hereby Revoke Your Black Card


cross-posted to Jack and Jill Politics

rikyrah did an excellent take-down of Andrew Young for his niggardly (yes, I am getting Shakespearean on this clown) comments about Barack Obama, but I want to tag team this Negro.

Civil rights has-been Andrew Young felt the need to explain to the press why he is not supporting Barack Obama. Mr. "Thank you for shopping at the local-economy-destroying Wal-Mart" thinks he still matters. Poor thing.

His arguments?
"Barack Obama does not have the support network yet to get to be president...," he said. He reflected on his days serving as one of many lieutenants to Martin Luther King Jr.
He also said that while Obama's rival Sen. Hillary Clinton is surrounded by quite a few black advisors Obama has very few. "To put a brother in there by himself is to set him up for crucifixion," he said.

Mr. Crab in a Bucket, do you know what might help Obama's network of support? How about if cowardly, corrupt sellouts such as yourself were to simply keep your mouths shut? And don't mistake the endorsement of a council of fools for real support. With more small donors than any other candidate in this campaign, Barack has a support network comprised of the people. Remember them? Bro?

Another argument?
He also joked that author Toni Morrison may have been on to something when she referred to former President Bill Clinton as the "first black president."
"Bill is every bit as black as Barack," he said. "He has probably gone out with more black women than Barack."

When would the married Bill Clinton have had time to go out with all of these black women, Mr. Young?

More importantly, how many times do I have to scream this?

BILL CLINTON WAS NOT BLACK.
BILL CLINTON IS NOT BLACK.
BILL CLINTON NEVER WILL BE BLACK!

Who is really behind this repeated claim? This is some bullshit, and it has got to stop. Now. Just because you play the saxophone and shamelessly, repeatedly cheat on your wife does not make you one of us. It's one thing for a comic to joke about this. It's another for a once-respected "black leader" to repeat such nonsense.

And just because you served with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. decades ago does not make you Lord of Blackness. Whether it's Jesse saying Obama is "acting white" with regard to Jena or this Andrew Jackson Young clown attempting to undermine Obama, we are going to call you on it every single time.

And, Mr. Young, since you think you have some God-granted right of judgment over people's black credentials, let me declare here and now that you, sir, are no longer black. I hereby revoke your Black card. Hand over your ID. You are barred from the meetings. You lose the right to speak ebonics. Do not pass go. If you are any color, it is green.

You are green with greed that could so blind you to support such a devastatingly destructive company as WALMART in the so-called name of your people.

Mostly, you are green with envy, that someone like Obama makes you look so tacky, so trifling, so out of touch, so transparently lame.
