Wolcott on Sen. Allen’s Dunderheaded remarks

August 15, 2006

Here’s an excerpt, however, reading the entirety of the post is enlightening. So please do.

No matter what height of prominence a black person reaches, conservatives will always find a way to reduce him or her to low-paid, low-status, low-skilled caricatured servitude. That’s their idea of cutting black personalities down to size and putting them in their place. Whatever uniform they wear, it’s still a monkey suit in the eyes and mouths of the white-makes-right contingent, which should make it no surprise that Senator George Allen, adopted son of the Confederacy, would reach back for a race-baiting jibe as his beanball pitch. It’s also no surprise that George Allen would be Fred Barnes’s kinda guy.
