REMINDER

A reminder to all those white liberals so proud of helping elect Barack Obama: if Roland Burris is tossed out of the Senate there will not be a single black in that body.

Ever notice how for 'progressives', race as a concept doesn't exist--except when it does?

Don't worry, the Republicans will put a black person up for Senate any century now.

I mean, what the hell is this? So, if they throw out Burris, white liberals are racists? What kind of nonsensical bullshit is this, Sam?

And why does that have anything to do with keeping Burris in the Senate?

I'm not sure what the point of this Post is.

Is it a “Call-To-Arms”, thinking that proud white liberals might have some say in any legal hearings regarding Roland Burris?

Or...

Is it an assumption that the only people that voted for Barack Obama, and read prorev.com/Undernews, are white. Not darker skinned ethnic minorities?

Or...

Subby thinks that this nation-wide (international?) Post will possibly cause the new Governor of Illinois (Quinn) to appoint another black man to be the Senator from Illinois.

Or...

Is it a taunt, rediculing white people that voted for Barack Obama? And joyously throwing the fact of a Lilly White Senate in their face. But Subby is to much of a whimp to remind (taunt) blacks that voted for Barack Obama.

Please Clarify.

So we should allow Burris to remain in the Senate only because he's black despite his lying about discussions he had with Blago's brother about his appointment to the Senate? Please...
