Headline in the Washington Times today:
Mfume calls black conservatives puppets
So, what else is new?
Well, apparently Latino liberal actor John Leguizamo is dissing Hispanic Republicans along the same lines. At the DNC fund-raising hate-a-thon in New York last week, he jibed: “”A Latino voting for a Republican is like a roach voting for raid.” (Hat tip: Rightwingduck)
All this tired, old “sellout” rhetoric reminds me: I just received my cool new Ted Rall-inspired t-shirts (courtesy of Rachel Jurado, the Banana Republican). I sent a “Self-loathing race traitor” shirt to my brother. And I may wear my “I’m Not ‘White.’ I’m RIGHT” shirt to the next UNITY Journalists of Color conference.
Get ’em while they’re hot!
