“Republicans hate that nigger Obama.”

A few years ago, an adoptive parent told me that “things are different” for her adopted daughter because the US has a Black President.  She said that the US is now in a “post-racial” society, and so the racism I faced growing up as an adoptee of color won’t impact her Chinese adoptee daughter.  This adoptive mother, of course, was attempting to shut me down/dismiss what I had to say. Instead of giving her the response she deserved, I actually chuckled and thought internally, “Post-racial my ass.”

Yeah, I wonder what that parent thinks these days when she sees stuff like this? Via Gawker.

A Republican caller to C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” program warned his fellow GOPers not to get too extreme in the wake of their electoral victories Tuesday, which he said were all “about race” because “Republicans hate that nigger Obama.”
