Only in the fever swamp imagination of the race-obsessed Left can a white man beat a white woman and the reason is racism. Yet that is emerging for some as the explanation for 2016. The campaign wasn’t about Obama’s policies, or Hillary’s corruption, or Trump’s massive celebrity. It wasn’t about the threat of Islamic terror or the declining prospects of the white working class. It was about white supremacy.
How do we know? Well, according to the Huffington Post, liberal icon Ta-Nehisi Coates explained it “perfectly” to The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah. Here’s the exchange:
If I have to jump six feet to get the same thing that you have to jump two feet for ― that’s how racism works.
To be president, [Obama] had to be scholarly, intelligent, president of the Harvard Law Review, the product of some of our greatest educational institutions, capable of talking to two different worlds…. Donald Trump had to be rich and white. That was it. That’s the difference.
This is pure, unadulterated nonsense. There’s no better word for it.
