Boxer’s “God Awful Road”

16 Jul

What happens when you unconsciously and reflexively use identity politics, but the member of the cited racial group doesn’t want to play along?

If you remember, Senator Boxer likes to be reffered to as Senator, and not “Ma’am,” as well. I’m surprised Mr. Alford was not lectured on his misstep, while being berated for his failure to follow his race’s assumed block opinion.

I’ve got an idea: let’s have each individual be allowed to express their own thoughts, without telling them what they should think based upon the color of their skin. I hope all those uber-smart elite coastal liberals eventually realize the subtle hypocrisy involved in simultaneously “fighting” for equality while also expecting racial groups to think and vote the same way.

    Darn those elite coastal liberals for lumping people into groups and denying their individuality!

    Blacks don’t choose to be Black. Whites don’t choose to be White. Same with Men, Women, Asians, Latinos, Homosexuals, Heterosexuals, or Eskimos. Therefore, none of those identifiers should allow prejudging about your political, economic or social views. Elite coastal liberals, on the other hand, choose their attitude, choose where they live, and choose their political beliefs. They self-identify to be lumped together. In fact, I think being liberal is, by definition, a political and intellectual position. Thanks for playing.
