Tim Wise On Dr. Laura,The N-Word, And White Racism

Last summer’s Health Care Reform (HCR) bill kicked off a flurry of racist ranting from the Tea Party and other folks gathering at town hall meetings.

Now it does not take a genius to teach black folks about the ins and outs of racism.  Some live it every day.  Tim Wise, author of “White Like Me, has written and spoken extensively on the subject and is a staunch advocate of anti-racism.

In the past, I’ve always thought that white people just don’t have the experience, the gravitas to talk about racism.  But what  he presents and how it is presented his case is another matter.  some white people are more apt to listen to some one who looks like them, meaning another white person.  Now they might not agree with Tim’s views on white racism, but what he says will at least get their attention, simply because he’s white.

Here’s an example of Tim breaking it down on CNN during the health-care reform debates:

        Laura’s sponsors shit a ton of bricks after that lil racist rant of hers. Now there’s no doubt that some of them share her sentiments, but can’t come out and rant nigger,nigger, nigger!

        Theycan’t make $$$ from the niggers if you do that, now can they.

        I’m all for 1st amendment rights, and equally for accepting FULL responsiblitiy for exercises it.

    Hiding, running, collapsing and quitting — all of the above is what she is doing.

    Affiliates and sponsors being attacked is very disheartening. Calling somebody a “nigger” is disheartening too. Get outta here.

      GOOD! What about JADE? Dr. Laura is doing what whitey does, cry victim and 1st amendment rights. She needs to take responsibility for her racist rant.

      I’m waiting for this miss slick to comment on her statement about telling Jade that she shouldn’t marry outside of her race.

      This woman is just given a platform to sell her nonsense in the way of books, etc. Good riddance to her!

    LOL, I’m checking on why I can’t reply directly under comments. thanks for your patience.

    Vette, don’t hold your breath on Dr. Laura paying a sista’s bills. That would ruin her image as a staunch advocate for calling blacks welfare queens.
