I know why he did it, but I could have warned the "O" man not to get on sports radio here in Philly today. But he did it anyway, and now he finds himself in hot water with white folks once again. Ironically, I was listening this morning, primarily because AI came home last night, and I wanted to see the reaction from Philly fans. I heard the comment that got the "O" man in trouble, and I didn't even notice. But then, I am not white.
In case you are wondering, the "O" man said that his grandmother is a "typical white person", so her negative reactions to a person of color is instinctive and based on her experiences. All the while the hosts on the air with him were yucking it up, and they all absolutely seemed delighted to have the "O" man on their radio program. But as word of his comments gets out to white A-merry-ca, I can sense the controversy coming ---I know it will if FAKE NEWS has their way--- and once again, it won't be pretty.
I know the "O" man is trying to get that blue collar, beer drinking, male Irish catholic vote. And if that's the vote he wants, WIP is the place to go and talk to the boys. But at some point in this race someone has to explain to the "O" man that there are certain people in A-mery-ca that will never vote for his black ass, no matter what. One of the hosts on the morning sports show absolutely declared that he would never vote for the "O" man right before he(the "O" man) went on their show. Poor "O" man, how could he have known that he was going on one of the most racially insensitive radio stations here in Philly? I know it's sports talk, but one of the great ironies of modern A-merry-can life, is that the folks who cheer the hardest for the black gladiators in our sports arenas, will fight the hardest to keep people who look like them out of their neighborhoods. WIP does not have one single Black full time host, has never done a remote in a black area, and does not advertise with black businesses. And their audience is made up of quite a few racist sexist neanderthals, who would only vote for Obama if a loaded six shooter was aimed straight at their heads. So why did the "O" man go on their show? Well, he needs to reach out to this demographic if he is going to have any shot at beating Hillary here in Pennsylvania. He had to make a deal with the devil.
Well "O" man, I know this devil, and trust me, he is not your friend.
