Facebook Post of the Day: Deneen Borelli’s ‘love note’ from a liberal

Facebook Post of the Day: Deneen Borelli’s ‘love note’ from a liberal
Deneen Borelli

Black lives matter, but clearly some black lives matter more than others. Just ask Clarence Thomas. Thomas is the lone black sitting on the U.S. Supreme Court, but you wouldn’t know it judging from a dialogue last month between Rep.Karen Bass (D., Calif.) and TV host Al Sharpton over the late Antonin Scalia’s replacement. Said Bass:

I think many people would like to see an African American on the Supreme Court. We don’t really need to go into Clarence Thomas’s background or his behavior on the Court, but I think to have an African-American voice that has definitely not been there since Thurgood Marshall would really be an incredible contribution to our country.

Shorter Karen Bass: Clarence Thomas is conservative, so he doesn’t count as black.

Our friend and colleague Deneen Borelli knows a thing or two about the second class citizenship status accorded to conservative blacks by the left. Consider this message for Deneen on Facebook posted by someone named Lee Echols:

I’m sure the only thing that matter to you is white approval. So easy to achieve. Why demonize the president? Remember, he ‘s half white, 50% better than your bloodline. A black like you will never change.

Makes you misty, doesn’t it? Good thing liberals can’t be bigots, or someone might hang that label around Echols’s neck.
