NYT accidentally implies Democratic party is racist.

Yesterday, the editorial board of the New York Times, claimed that McCain’s “Celebrity” ad was racially charged.  If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out for yourself to see if you detect blatant racism:


The NYT’s evidence that this ad is racist is thus:

The ad gave us an uneasy feeling that the McCain campaign was starting up the same sort of racially tinged attack on Mr. Obama that Republican operatives ran against Harold Ford, a black candidate for Senate in Tennessee in 2006. That assault, too, began with videos juxtaposing Mr. Ford with young, white women.

So, according to the New York Times, having black men and white women next to eachother is racist. In that case, we must also conclude that the Democratic party is also racist, for willfully putting a black man next to a white woman:

And not only that, they did it countless times on national television! That movie that came out recently, Hancock, put Will Smith (a black man) next to Charlize Theron (a white woman) on numerous occasions during the film. We must also conclude that that film is racist. In fact, I see black men standing next to white women all the time, sometimes even holding hands! Clearly these couples must be racist for standing next to each other. And you, oh reader, willfully visualized all of these black men and white women in your head as I described them. Therefore, you too are racist – but that’s ok, because the New York Times is on to you.

P.S. Obama Supporters, that last paragraph is satire.

    If one has nothing to say, it is perfectly fine to say nothing, just in case you did not know that.

    Angie, you should’ve heeded your own advice before posting that comment.
