  •  Vic, that is the racism. It is a common (4+ / 0-)

    trope among racists that you can't see black people at night.

    •  Yeah, I know. My point was pretty minor - (0+ / 0-)

      I wasn't suggesting in any way that this isn't racist or that I don't see the racism. It's obvious, and it's horrible.

      I was commenting on this:

      Obama--instead, just a "spook."

      Because, haha, in addition to being another word for a ghost, "spook" is also a racial slur against African-Americans!  Funny!  Not.

      I just don't see exactly how the particular epithet 'spook' figures into it. It's racist on its face (no pun intended) - because as you say, "It is a common trope among racists that you can't see black people at night."

      But no biggie, and hardly worth arguing about. The end result is the same.

      I can't go to the doctor
