Letters from the Lunar Outpost

The beautiful seems right by force of beauty, and the feeble wrong because of weakness.
- Elizabeth B. Browning, English Poet (1806-1861)

For anyone who believes such as I do that racism has been and continues to be one of the most vile and destructive scourges in all human history, it stands to reason that one of the greatest goals of our human race should be to move past the racial divisions and towards an attitude of neutral indifference when it comes to race. The sad reality, however, is that as long as most liberals stubbornly cling to their maniacal obsession with race, the whole of humanity will never evolve into a post-racial species.

How bad is the liberal obsession with race? Consider liberal softballer Chris Matthews, when he made this unwitting admission of his obsession with race after Obama’s State of the Union Address in 2010:

You know, I forgot he was black tonight for an hour.

Shocked at the Liberal Obsession with Race

Seriously? This comment was made Jan 28, 2010, over two years after Obama became president and almost three years after he announced his campaign for president.

Never has a more telling sentence slipped from the lips of a left-wing talking head. Chris Matthews is admitting flat-out that after 1,000 days of Obama making speeches, he finally made it through an entire Obama speech without thinking about Obama’s blackness.

What did it sound like inside Matthews liberal head for the other 999 days when he saw Obama speaking? “Oh my God, he’s so . . . black! He’s just so black! He’s not as black as coal or as black as a moonless night, but he’s still very black. I can’t believe how black Obama is! Even his name even sounds African! He’s just so damn black!”

It’s an astounding look into the race-obsessed liberal mind.

For me, I watched Obama’s inauguration and I was surprised at my reaction when I felt the tears welling up in my eyes. Why was I so surprised at my own reaction? Because during the campaign, I was thinking about the words Obama was speaking and the policies he was proposing. I hadn’t given a damn about Obama’s skin color during the entire campaign, so it was really the first time I had given it more than a passing thought as I said to myself, “My God, we just elected a black president! God bless America!”

But for most liberals, even the most non-racial discussion about Obama must be twisted back to their delusion that everyone else is just as race obsessed as they are.

When I wrote a post about how twice as many soldiers have died in Afghanistan in half the time under “peace prize” Obama as did during “war criminal” Bush and then reflected about how Bush quit playing golf because he felt it disrespectful for grieving parents to see the president golfing during the war, whereas the war-expanding Obama had just hit a milestone of 100 rounds of golf, not even a hint of race was mentioned anywhere in my entire post. In an alternate reality, I could have made the exact same post substituting the name of a President Kerry or a President Gore.

Yet the liberal compulsion to take the most non-racial discussion and pervert it into something racial is just too strong to for most of them to resist, as evidenced by this sample of tweets I received in response:

Repeatedly I asked these race mongers to show me exactly what it was that I had said that compelled them to try to brand me a “racist.” I received nothing but more lame generalities and false platitudes in reply.

When liberals start throwing around the term “racist” without a shred of evidence to back it up, besmirching people who couldn’t be anything farther from it, the psychological term for this type of behavior is “projection.” They are projecting their own racism onto the rest of the world around them. Unfortunately for the rest of the world, as long as the typical liberal remains pathologically fixated on race and the color of people’s skin, we as a species will never evolve into that color-blind society the rest of us have been dreaming of.

Most liberals claim a great affinity for the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., but it seems to me they’ve either never really heard or read his words, or if they have, they never grasped what Dr. King was saying because they are so very far from the fundamental ideals he taught.

Read, my liberal friends, read . . . contemplate . . . meditate:

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

Every time someone judges President Obama by his actions and nothing more, regardless of whether they approve or disapprove, they are judging the man by the content of his character and they are living up to the dream of Dr. King.

Every time a liberal injects race into an honest debate when there was never even a hint of a racial issue being raised, they are defiling the dream.

Every time a liberal mindlessly slanders people who dare question the president by calling them “racist,” that is setting race relations backwards centuries, a very regressive action for the liberals who seek to re-brand themselves as “progressives.”

In the name of all that is good and all that can be even better in the human race, abondon your obsession with race, my liberal friends.

  • Race is still a huge factor in our country as you are well aware. Just go ask your friendly southern republicans what they think of Obama. Or how about the countless number of emails I’ve received with “monkey jokes” or the whispers and/or under the breath comments of countless others injecting Obamas race into his ability to serve. But if you prefer to say that it’s the “liberals” always injecting race into the conversation than have it. You certainly won’t hear that from the right because there is a lot of votes that could cost you.

    • Hey Double-B, good to have you weighing in on it and thanks for reading me and taking me at my word in being well aware that racism has been and continues to be a huge problem.

      Any conservative who sends monkey jokes or whispers under their breath monkey jokes about Obama is a flat-out embarrassment in my book. Reality though? There was far more of it during the last president. How many hundreds of variations of this did you see during the Bush years?

      Fucking racist Bush haters!

  • As a conservative Latino I have to say I’ve had more problems with liberals and the race card than any conservative ever. This country saddens me and depresses me because I have been judged by the left by the color of my skin. Liberals do indeed have an obsession with race.

    • That is saddening no doubt, but you can take comfort in the fact that conservatives out number liberals by 2 to 1 and moderates outnumber liberals almost 2 to 1 again.

      Look at what liberals do to any black who dare not think in lockstep with their left-wing program – they call them Uncle Toms, Oreos and they even go so far as to say there’s only one way you can think if you want to be considered a legitimate black. It’s disgusting, and even more so when you consider how liberals and their cohorts in the media portray people on the left as being the embodiments of tolerance. Truth is, for anyone who doesn’t hold their same ideology, most liberals are the antithesis of tolerance.

  • I think that just like all others like you that have nothing better than to do but complain, Race is and always will be a subject you will debate until it is a dead horse…..It seems like any time there is any type of debate, political or otherwise, race HAS TO MAKE AN APPEARANCE……Yeah America has a tumultuous past regarding the mistreatment of blacks, Irish, Japenese, etc….but why is that anyone that is offended by that feels they are entitled to something. When you look at me, you see a white american female…..but gues what???? My family tree includes Irish, Welsh and French….but because of people that won’t let race go, I am seen as I appear….The only way racsim is gonna go away in the US is if people stop using it as an excuse for why they have made the poor decisions thats put them on their life course…..

  • Yeah when you get called a racist when you have criticisms of the President waging an unconstitutional war against an African country and overthrowing an anti imperialist leader and you get called a racist or even a white supremacist it kind of makes your head explode. I am getting so tired of the PC identity politics race stuff, so burned out on it. When I was younger I was the one “always bringing up race” but not literally all the time, now its everything and it’s always gotta be personal. And I am wondering if this constant checking for racialized patterns of social hierarchy isn’t creating a self fulfilling prophecy in many cases. Perhaps we wouldn’t create those and just be natural with each other if there wasn’t always some grim grad student commissar to remind us of the way it inevitably is.
