Joe Wilson and Kanye West...Racists or Jackasses?

PostBy: mikeandgerry On: Wed Sep 16, 2009 12:11 am

Interestingly enough Joe Wilson and Kanye West recently committed the same error. They were both completely rude and out of line by speaking out during speeches by honored people. In one case the jackass was white and the victim was black and in the other case the jackass was black and the victim was white.

Former US president, Jimmy Carter, without reason, called the white jackass a racist and many on the left in congress piled on. The white jackass was formally rebuked by his peers despite an immediate apology directly to the victim. His opposition colleagues feared an onslaught of racist behavior if there was no rebuke. The white jackass merely disagreed with a legislative proposal and statement by the black victim.

The black jackass delayed his direct apology to the victim until pressured by the public. The black jackass was correctly called a jackass by the black victim in the parallel case who happens to be the president of the US. The white jackass was incorrectly called a racist by a former white president of the US. However, no one has called the black jackass a racist who during his rude act, clearly supported a black colleague over a competing white colleague which is the only factor that might lead anyone to conclude racism, though it would be a stretch.

The way I see it they are both jackasses but neither are racists. The media didn't call Joe Wilson a racist. Is congress and Jimmy Carter that stupid?

I don't see where skin color has anything to do with how a jackass acts.

Of coarse the underlining cause is race but this is america where you can`t say things like that "oops". This is a country where you have to have minorities everywhere, but there can be a miss black america beauty pagent, black radio & black tv channels, just try to have an all white anything. I think J.C. is right to some degree & I`m pretty sure he doesn`t even know who Kanye West is, I sure didn`t still don`t for sure but I think hes a singer or rapper of some sort. It just shows the ignorance & lack of respect there is in this country. To a large degree we are still a racist country but who`s fault is it? The educated or at least common sense blanks are in the background all we see in daily life are the scum. When most came here they learned english( without trying to change it) & tried to work hard to better themselves & blend in. It took time & work every big city had their Polish hills or German towns allthe ethnic clubs but theylet other cultures in.

The race card, overplayed.

Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and others have made a living creating false claims of racism and shaking down businesses small and large.

As long as we define others by the color of our skin then we are forever doomed to view the world in terms of race. So don't allow others to define your view of the world by their black and white eye glasses.

Both of their parents failed to raise them well despite their success in their chosen careers.

Being rude and disrespectful is a sign of poor parenting.
