I wondered how long it’d be before twisted and bitter old Louis Farrakhan turned Obama’s victory into another chapter in his lifelong rant against white people. Sorry, Louis: last Tuesday finally removed any justification you had for playing that old white-guilt card.
Of course, men like Farrakhan don’t want inequality to end, because it’d remove their very reason for living. Such people are nothing without something to moan about. They’re more part of the problem than part of the solution.
What these people never realise is that by constantly drawing attention to the rather minor differences between races, they’re driving divisions between us, when they should be drawing us together. I think drawing people together – forgetting little things like the odd gene or two – will be one of President Obama’s big strengths, and what Farrkhan, Jackson, Rev Wossname and whatever really can’t stand is that it’ll marginalise all the pomposity they hold most dear.
