Wake Up, White People…

…those racist blacks are taking over.  Putting down the poor, powerless white folks again.  You know who they are:  Jeremiah Wright, Van Jones, the evil ACORN people, the New Black Panthers, the NAACP, and now, Shirley Sherrod.

Sherrod, whose husband was a Freedom Rider and whose father was murdered by some Georgia cracker, was just the latest to be slimed this week by the Breitbart/Drudge/FoxNews/talk radio race hustlers.  She wasn’t the first and she won’t be the last.  Mainly because it works.  The GOP has been using a “Southern Strategy” to scare white people since the days of Nixon. 

We expect it from them, it’s what they do and who they are.  The real story this week is how quickly the USDA, the White House, even the NAACP all fell into line and embarrassed themselves over this.  

As usual, Frank Rich sums up the whole sordid affair better than anyone.

Good grief.
