“Tolerant” Dems In Race War?

Barack Obama may be considered post racial (contrary to his autobiography), but there are those that have yet to jump on that band wagon. The latest scandal that has yet again rocked the Illinois governors office has taken a twist, with embattled governor Rod Blagojevich appointing Roland Burris to take Obama’s vacant senate seat. The yet to be indicted Blagojevich by law must choose someone to take Obama’s former seat, and that he did, appointing Burris, a black man to serve in an otherwise white senate.

The appointment was blocked by Harry Reid and his henchmen, apparently because Burris just wasn’t Harry’s preference.

Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill jumped all over this. He likened the rejection to racist and lynching activities of years past. On the surface, this sounds like Rush playing a tired old race card. But in the case of Reid it may fit. Burris isn’t the only black man Reid has found unacceptable. Coincidence? maybe not. Reid belongs to the Mormon church, a church that didn’t even allow blacks in until 1978. Mitt Romney caught hell during the primaries for this fact, but Harry Reid just chugs along unnoticed.

That is until now. Blag had every right to make the appointment (whether he should have under the circumstances is another question), and Reid had no right to block Burris’ seating. Lawsuits may be filed as a result of the rejection, and race cards will most likely continue to fly.

Choosing someone based on race (such as Rush did), is certainly wrong, and maybe racist in and of itself, depending on the motivation behind it. Rejecting someone because of race is just as bad, and if that is what Harry Reid did, he should be exposed. Ahh, change we can believe in. Get used to it
