Merely pointing all this out will no doubt cause certain supposedly open-minded social critics to smear me in much the same manner they’ve attempted to abuse LePage. I’ll undoubtedly be accused of being a racist. As with the governor, nothing could be farther from the truth. My statements about whites are based not on animosity toward them as a race but on current facts and the historical record. As any reputable source will show, when Caucasians somehow seize power, they’ve traditionally instituted abhorrent practices. Other races are enslaved. Women are denied basic civil rights. Convenience stores sell nothing but menthol smokes.
Nevertheless, there’s no need for LePage’s remark about Obama being less than enthralled with whites to divide us. Rather, it should be an occasion for bringing us together. Once we’ve established a dialogue between the races (using small words so the whites will understand), we can create an opportunity for the less cutaneously favored to benefit from our superior wisdom.
For instance, LePage himself could instruct these unfortunate creatures in some of the finer points of politics, such as restraining their racially based instinct to say whatever pops into their little brains, lest their indiscreet comments offend others and incite derision.
If this lifts up even one member of the white race, you can color me proud.
