According to the New York Post, yesterday morning on an East Village street actor and ardent Democrat Alec Baldwin called a black Post photographer a “coon”, “crackhead” and a “drug dealer.” The photographer, a decorated retired detective with the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau, G.N. Miller said of the confrontation, “He was saying some serious racist stuff. He said some choice words about my mother, and he was telling people in the street that I’m a drug dealer. He could have said a lot of other stuff. But he used all of the stereotypes associated with black people.”
This is not the first time Baldwin has made racially inappropriate comments to black photographers. Last June, Baldwin shouted to a black photographer on the street, “You gotta back up there Rodney.” Given what he thinks of black photographers being “crackheads,” one could assume it was a reference to Rodney King… because the photographer’s name wasn’t Rodney.
Clearly, Alec Baldwin has a pretty low regard for blacks. But do his racially insensitive comments make him a racist?
Last week I wrote an article titled Jamie Foxx is a Racist. Why? Because he proudly exclaimed that the black race is the most talented race on the planet. I didn’t disagree that there are a lot of talented black people, but to suggest one race is superior to one or all other races just because of the color of their skin is, by definition, racist.
One reader took issue with my article enough to suggest that I wasn’t holding Republican-leaning entertainers to the same standard as the racist Democrat Jamie Foxx, stating, “Then I look forward to your article blasting SOTU attendee Ted Nugent as a racist for saying this to the Detroit Free Press: “Apartheid isn’t that cut and dry. All men are not created equal.”Or for this gem: “I use the word n—-r a lot because I hang around with a lot of n—-rs, and they use the word n—-r, and I tend to use words that communicate….” So yeah…REALLY looking forward to your article. (Or can only black people be racists in your world?)”
Besides the reader cherry picking Nugent quotes and failing to show them in full context (eg. the apartheid comment was not about race, but about civilized culture versus primitive culture — a culture that Nugent identified with and championed), the reader suggested that those that make racially insensitive comments are racist. If that were true, then the following people would be racist:
VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN – DEMOCRAT
Barack Obama was the “first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” (2007)
Or this gem, “you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.” (2006)
FIRST LADY & SEC’Y OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON – DEMOCRAT
Mahatma Gandhi “ran a gas station down in Saint Louis.” (2004)
LATE SENATOR (PRESIDENT PRO-TEM) ROBERT BYRD – DEMOCRAT
“There are white niggers. I’ve seen a lot of white niggers in my time. I’m going to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country, and I’d just as soon quit talking about it so much.” (2001)
That’s just a few Democrats who were one degree from the President and at least fourth in succession of becoming President of the United States just in the last dozen years. I could write into oblivion the racially insensitive quotes from other Democrat politicians, entertainers, media personalities, supporters and so on, but I’ve contended that racially insensitive comments don’t make a person “racist” (and I think the Democrat-friendly media must feel the same way, unless you have an “R” after your name).
What does make people racist are actual racist comments that suggest the superiority of one race of another or all others based on the color of skin, or the association with the KKK, internment camps (the pleasant way of saying “concentration camps”), voting against the Civil Rights Acts of the 1960s, or their modern-day racism of low expectations of certain minorities… but the plethora of evidence that the Democrat Party is actually steeped in true racism from the beginning of their existence to present day will never get through the thick skulls of their followers.
But according to the Democrat-leaning reader who felt compelled to scold me for some degree of racial hypocrisy, I have it all wrong. Apparently, what makes people “racist,” at least according to the reader that suggested Ted Nugent is a racist, is making racially insensitive comments. So, by that Democrat’s own definition, Jamie Foxx is not a racist; however, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and, naturally, Alec Baldwin are all racist… sick vile racists.
But, I am sure if you asked him, none of the above are racist… just the primitive knuckle-dragging savages, Ted Nugent and me.
