It cracks me up that the left, the side of the debate that is supposed to be about equality and fairness is so blatantly racist that they don’t even realize it.
Now imagine she wasn’t the daughter of a prominent Republican politician but an average person. Now imagine she was black.
It doesn’t take a genius to get the inference there – that if she were black, she’d be poor and unable to raise the child without state assistance, and the Republicans would castigate her for it. Now, whether or not it’s true that Republicans would openly deride her if the situation were different isn’t the matter at hand, but rather the implied racism of the post. Right there, it assumes that if Bristol Palin were black, she’d be poor, she’d be on welfare, or any number of other things that cast an incredibly negative stereotype of African-Americans.
Of course, this is coming from HuffPo, so I’m not exactly surprised that they’re so blatantly racist.
