Redneck Ebonics

Okay, black people, feel free to pack it in and go home anytime, safe in the knowledge that what you have to say and how you feel is being eloquently and diligently championed by that icon of racial sensitivity, Toby Keith.

In this interview with on Glenn Beck's radio show, Keith proclaimed that, "...the black people would say he [Obama] don't talk, act or carry himself as a black person." Even the ultra-conservative, uber-right-wing Beck was incredulous. "What does that even mean?" he asked Keith. Revealing himself to be the thoughtful, articulate hate-monger he is, Keith responded, "Well, I don't know what that means, but I think that that's what they would say. Even though the black society would pull for him I still think that they think in the back of their mind that the only reason he is in is because he talks, acts and carries himself as a Caucasian."

So, now that Keith as appointed himself harbinger of what "black society" wants, needs and feels, it's really kind of superfluous to have all those black people around expressing their own opinions.

Thanks, Toby, for letting us in on what your years of sensitive, in-depth studies of African-American culture and politics have revealed to us, in a way that we Caucasians can understand.

(A translation from Caucasian-speak to whatever it is Toby Keith thinks black people speak will be forthcoming, as soon as I can find the white guys who used to write for Amos 'n' Andy.)
