Michael Eric Dyson Tries To Teach Morning Joe. . .

Dr. Dyson tried to teach them and they just weren't getting it. No one is claiming it's ALL about Racism, but there is a lot out there that is based on racism. For them to cite poll numbers to back up their claims that there's no racism at all involved is disingenuous at best. I've stated repeatedly that I think it's more ignorance than anything. Sure, some of it is just because he's a Democrat. If they thought they could get away with claiming Obama is a murderer they would, in fact they do call him a "baby killer." But there are a lot of images being used by the "tea baggers" that are racially motivated.

Then Joe Scarborough tries to act like Rush Limbaugh has never said anything racist. He said this just YESTERDAY:

You put your kids on a school bus you expect safety but in Obama's America the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering 'yeah, right on, right on, right on.' Of course everybody said the white kid deserved it he was born a racist, he's white.

And he's been saying crap like that since Obama was inaugurated, and probably before then. "Obama's America" as if it's not the United States of America. As if suddenly by virtue of having an African American President everything is going to change and White people will suddenly be oppressed, and Black people are going to take over. It's sickening.

Dr. Dyson tried his hardest to get through to the other people in the conversation, but judging from their dumbstruck looks through most of it, they didn't get it.
