    You ARE on the left, by your own admission.

    Why haven't I seen you in the Reid thread criticizing him...

    Kali -> If I HONESTLY thought Rush was a racist, I would be right there with you criticising him. I am also not a Dittohead, so I am actually open to persuasion on this point. However, you have not sought in engaging in persuasion. You simply state he is a racist and then expect everyone to accept your opinion as fact. That simply won't fly with most reasonably educated people of any political persuasion.

    The Magic Negro song is a parody on an article by The Liberal LA Times claiming he wasn't black enough. The comic doing the piece used Sharpton in it... see why below...

    It was a spoof on the left. And their comments and questions whether Obama was BLACK enough

    Git it?
    Of course not.

    I have the right mind to start charging you for this education.

    Obama the 'Magic Negro'
    Obama the 'Magic Negro' - latimes.com

    "He has no past, he simply appears one day to help the white protagonist,"

    He's there to assuage white "guilt" (i.e., the minimal discomfort they feel) over the role of slavery and racial segregation in American history, while replacing stereotypes of a dangerous, highly sexualized black man with a benign figure for whom interracial sexual congress holds no interest.

    Consequently, even the mild criticisms thrown his way have been waved away, "magically."

    The only mud that momentarily stuck was criticism (white and black alike) concerning Obama's alleged "inauthenticty," as compared to such sterling examples of "genuine" blackness as Al Sharpton...

    Wasn't that whole magic negro thing started by the LA Times?

    I find it disturbing that people who have listened to him for years cannot see anything racist about his attitude and have not come across any racist remarks.

    Of course not.
    There is a world of difference between the LA Times commentary and performing a song like Rush did.
    Declaring this to be a "spoof" is a cheap attempt to get off the hook.

    You cannot prove that Rush is a racist.

    I think this is the THIRD time this link has been posted on this thread. #2 is demonstratively NOT racist. Most of the others are not well sources NOR do they contain proper context -- something you would know if you had been reading this thread. Now, while some people think context does not matter, most educated, critical people DO realize that context is important. Now, provide it. If he is a racist, I will join in the criticism. However, just saying he is a racist and/or providing poorly sourced lists does not cut it.

    Still in denial, I see. Hitler did not write or perform a lot of his material, also.
