This has to be my 'Question of the day'. Can someone please tell me where do the media manage to find these negroes that are always willing to excuse racism? Please I really need to know is there some sort of secret location or something where these people hide and only the media knows how to bring them out when a debate on racism is raging. I mean it never fails. There is always some 'Happy Negro' willing to to come out the woodworks and and promptly excuse racist behavior.
When a racist says he/she is not a racist because one of his/her best friends are black he/she is referring to someone like Joe Oliver.
I always wanted to be able to put a face to this one best friend that these people talk about and now I have a poster child in the form of Joe Oliver.
Joe Oliver is George Zimmerman's black spokesperson whose been all over the media trying to squash reports of Zimmerman being a racist. You know, because there is nothing that says your not a racist better than having a black spokesperson.
Joe Oliver is really taking his job serious too. He went on the MSNBC's Chris Matthews Show to dispute that 'coon' was actually a term of endearment and not a racial slur. Don't give me the side eye, I'm not making this stuff up.
Here's what he said:
That’s a term I listened to over and over on there and to me, it’s a matter of interpretation of whether he’s saying ‘coon’ or ‘goon.’ There are a lot of parts of this country where people proudly call themselves ‘coon asses,’ in Louisiana in particular. source
And there you have it folks, George Zimmerman couldn't possibly be a racist because people in Louisiana refer to themselves as 'coon asses'. Nevermind that 'coon asses' is considered a slur against White cajuns, but I digress. Joe Oliver has definitely earned his 'thirty pieces of silver'.
