The Race Card

So Whoopi Goldberg decided she’d play the race card (again).  Well, Whoopti-Doo!  Whoopi, honey, it’s been over-played.  By you, by Janeane Garafolo, by Chris “Tingles” Matthews and by every other liberal that can’t defend the President’s actions and policies with facts or logic.

Stop calling me racist.  It’s old, and it’s trite.  Stop trying to tell me that I don’t know what it’s like to be discriminated against because of my race.  I’ve been discriminated against not only because of my race (both of them) but because of my gender as well.  Piss off, liberals.  You’ve discriminated more against me than any WASP, then turn around and tell me I’m the racist because I abhor the direction the President is taking the country.  You’re going to have to collectively find a new rebuttal.

Today is Diversity Thursday over at CDR Salamander’s place, so I thought I’d join in some of his fun.  I’m half Caucasian and half Filipino.  I was adopted and raised by Mk 1 Mod 0 white parents.  In the course of my life I’ve been referred to as “the Chinaman” and “Ho Chi Minh” by white and black peers, ostracized by Filipino shipmates for being mixed race, and even told that I wasn’t a “real part of the family” by a cousin.  When I was in college, I spent a few years in AFROTC.   A female Captain, who happened to be OSI by trade, made some inquiries after asking me why I hadn’t applied for a scholarship when, in her view, I would have been a shoe-in for one (at first she didn’t believe me when I told her I had).  She later informed me that I hadn’t received one because “you aren’t a black female”.  Evidently, being an Eagle Scout that graduated in the top ten percent of his high school class while taking honors courses and scoring a 32 on the ACT didn’t stand up to the qualifications of having been born with breasts, a vagina, and darker skin.  I’m guessing that’s what happened to the NROTC scholly I applied for, as well.  I’m not touting myself as the reincarnation of Georgie Patton here, but when we select people for leadership and advancement based on “diversity” criteria and not actual ability we have no reason to wonder why things are screwed up.

Let me leave you with one thought to ponder: if the President was Herman Cain or Allen West, what would you hear from the left? They’re already saying it…UNCLE TOM!

But we’re the racists. Liberals, you can kiss my (half) brown…
