What Rick Santorum really meant with his “snob” comment

3Chics is going to break it down and translate what Rick Santorum meant with the “snob” comment about President Obama wanting everyone to attend college. We are fluent in explaining and interpreting the  dog whistles and Lil Ricky is playing to the uninformed and uneducated electorate.

Rick Santorum–Flashback 2006

Rick Santorum 2012: Obama “A Snob” For Wanting Everyone To Go To College

Translation: Obama is an uppity nigger trying to make colleges affordable so other uppity niggers and brown people can go to college and therefore encouraging them to think they TOO might become President of the United States! What a SNOB!

So only Rick Santorum and his kids should get the benefits of a college education? The rabid, UNEDUCATED base may buy into this, because let’s be honest here. No SANE Black person would ever buy into this bullshit about college-educated =SNOBBERY. Not after what our ancestors and we have had to contend within this RACIST society.

      Reading by slaves illegal

      Some Slavery Codes made teaching, Mulatto, Indian and indentured slaves illegal.[2]

      Alabama, 1833, section 31 – “Any person or persons who attempt to teach any free person of color, or slave, to spell, read, or write, shall, upon conviction thereof by indictment, be fined in a sum not less than two hundred and fifty dollars, nor more than five hundred dollars.”

      Alabama, 1833, section 32 – “Any free person of color who shall write for any slave a pass or free paper, on conviction thereof, shall receive for every such offense, thirty-nine lashes on the bare back, and leave the state of Alabama within thirty days thereafter…”

      Alabama, 1833, section 33 – “Any slave who shall write for any other slave, any pass or free-paper, upon conviction, shall receive, on his or her back, one hundred lashes for the first offence, and seven hundred lashes for every offence thereafter…”

    Thanks for breaking it down, SouthernGirl2. The far right nuts think we’re stupid and don’t know what they’re really saying. If it were left up to me, every kid in America would pursue some education beyond high school. I graduated from college, earned multiple advanced degrees and made sure my kid earned her college degree because there’s real value in educating one’s self. Off to tweet this!!
