Magic Negro ?

About: obama the 'magic negro' - los angeles times

   I wonder if anyone out there, especially the liberal left, can see how really disgustingly racist they are! Obama is not black enough ? Obama is not down for the struggle ? Will the race baiting poverty pimps of the left ever get disowned by the Democrat party?     - 
   My opinions on what racism really is are in this item.  
   
   Here is the Wikipedia article on the term "Magical Negro" . Here is the Wikipedia article on Obama. Here is the Wikipedia article on Martin Luther King, Jr.
   I think MLK &/or what he stood for is being turned upside down by the left. Watch the primaries & the coming election to further illustrate this.

This item is not anti-Obama!  It is mostly anti-Liberal in the domain of the liberal hypocricy of racism! 
And exactly what is the connection between the concept of the magic negro and the liberal hyprocricy of racism? 
The term magic negro itself is patently, offensively racist - see 714 if you are confused about it! LATimes is consistently left-liberal. Up till Obama, the liberal politics has spent it's energies attracting blacks of the Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton & even the Louis Farrakhan mold . The article in question, IMHO, is almost poking fun at Obama as some kind of great white hope to expunge white guilt.  I disagree with that. Not in the article, but elsewhere, there are comments about Obama (Sharpton I think) that say Obama's not down for the struggle - meaning he's not black enough for his caucus.

-snip- you got me all wrong & I will not waste my time defending your ad hominem attacks. 

The point is simply that the liberal left wanted someone more black & out of the same old mold that they have been touting since the civil rights days.
Well appently something i said in that paragraph that i spent half and hour composing really got to you.  If you continue to snip me like that without warning, then i will start ignoring your items entirely and start deleting your comments on my blog.  This is not any way to behave at fbi.

Don't use ad hominem attacks which are exactly opposite of my intent & I won't delete your shit! I learned the deleting technique from YOU(Seth) ~ however disguised as off-topic! The topic is not about me.
     For those of you who are somehow liberally challenged - Address the content not me!

Oh i see.  You, and perhaps Ehrenstein, want to reify your political abstractions ... the "liberal left wanted".  Like this Obama phenomena couldn't just be that people like what he is saying and how he is saying it.  They like his cool.  They like that he is against the war.  They like that he is not talking out the side of his neck.  It can't be as simple as that.  Oh, no, it has to be the cumulation of a conspiracy that has been going on since reconstruction.  Give me a break.

Mark de LA says
Get over it!  This item is not anti-Obama!  It is mostly anti-Liberal in the domain of the liberal hypocricy of racism!  Obama will show up later on as whatever he really is. I don't think anyone really knows yet. His experience in the spotlight is only 2 years old.

Mark de LA says
Seth, you may be right about LATimes wanting Hillary. Additionally, they want Obama to sound more traditionally black. Just like Sharpton wants Obama to wait for his endorsement until Obama starts paying homage to him & Jesse. I would love for Obama to become a folk hero without resorting to talking about race. I suspect, however that he will eventually end up doing that. He seems to be sourcing Lincoln, why not MLK ? The primaries are way too early to get exactly who Obama is.

Seth says
Yes, "the term magic negro itself is patently, offensively racist" ... Yes, "the LATimes is consistently left-liberal".  Which begs the question why would they "poke fun at Obama as some kind of great white hope to expunge white guilt"?  Mark, that makes no political sense .

Clearly Ehrenstein was not trying to help the Obama cause.  Exactly what his intentions were, i don't know ... perhaps he is trying to help Hillary.  Associating Obama with "expungeing white guilt" is just wrong (period).  I think i got the interpertaion of this right in 6460.  Perhaps Obama himself will have a reaction, though perhaps it would be best for him to just ignore it. 


Mark de LA says
I suspect that if Obama would take my stand on racism (714) that he not only would win the nomination, but maybe the election - other things being equal.

 Additionally, they want Obama to sound more traditionally black. 
I assume the "they" of which you speak are liberals.  But if Obama is their man, why would they want him to sound "traditionally black".  That would certainly piss off most of white America and loose him the nomination  ... let's be honest if not pc, who likes a uppity black guy, except other uppity black guys.  It is just because Obama does not sound like Sharpton  that he is so popular with the press and even perhaps with your alleged liberals.  So no, i don't think serious liberals want Obama to sound more traditionally black.  But you may be right, that may have been what Ehrenstein though he was saying.  But what he actually did was to give closet bigots a way to understand the Obama phenomena so that they can feel justified in rejecting him.  On its face it certainly is not intended to give liberals a reason to vote for him.  It is an odd piece of political commentary.  I had read it yesterday and rejected it as absurd ... i'm surprised that it apparently hit some cord in your mind. 

Mark de LA says
I included the piece for the sake of stirring up controversy - mission accomplished!
Liberalism believes in the collective & groups, conservatism, libertarianism even more so, believes in the individual.  For a long time blacks as a group were courted to the liberal Democrat party. They were even taken for granted in the last few elections. A sign that blacks have exceeded their groupness is realized in Obama & on the conservative side people like Condi Rice & Justice Clarence Thomas.  The groupness of blacks depends upon a stereotype of poverty & helplessness.  Obama, while a Democrat, is moving outside the coalition of groups that is the Democrat party. We can argue further these points but, I would stop here & generate another 6460 or not.

The original article was from the LA Times, Dude! - one of your liberal buddy newspapers.
Talk about old news ..... this was before Obama won the primary.
