Cognitive Dissonance

Our blacks are so much better than their blacks. You have fought against probably your family, probably your neighbors… that’s why we have very impressive blacks… Obama is not a descendant of the blacks that suffered these Jim Crow laws, he’s not the son of American blacks that went through the American experience, [but] the son of a Kenyan.

Ann Coulter, defending Herman Cain, and claiming “their blacks” - meaning black American conservatives - are better than blacks who are liberal. First, who’s being divisive again? Second, is anyone else quite disturbed by her saying “our blacks” like it’s some kind of ownership? 

It’s a little awkward to see professional race-baiters, who are white, using the phrase “our blacks” and questioning the authenticity of President Obama’s experience as a biracial man in America. 

This reminds me of a conversation I overheard on campus. A member of the Campus Republicans said he supported Cain winning the nomination simply because “he’s blacker than Obama,” and if he were to win, “the Democrat party gets its race card cut up, and the GOP can’t be told they’re racist.” I asked him if he thought Herman Cain was essentially their cause célèbre. And he called me a racist.

No. Claiming Cain as “your black” is racist. Period. End of story. Fin. Here’s the video:
