New York Times labels Tim Scott a “token.” When liberals let their inner racist out, they disguise their inner depravity by trying to sound intellectual. This op-ed by some yahoo professor named Adolph L. Reed Jr. concocts “the fact that modern black Republicans have been more tokens than signs of progress,” then refers to “thinly veiled racism of the Tea Party,” and finally concludes that Scott’s appointment is merely a salve for white Republicans, who “don’t want to have to think of themselves, or be thought of by others, as racist.”

I’m sure once he’s seated, the Congressional Black Caucus will try to send him to re-education camp to try to bring him to the fold.

They are jealous of his success. Senator Scott made it all by himself by working hard and doing his best. The fish wrapper NY Times just could not fathom the idea of a minority actually rising up and by their boot straps and make something of themselves.

I hope that they soon join WVKO.

With a name like Adolph L. Reed Jr, he must be an overseer on a Plantation somewhere.

I wonder what it feels like to be so unhinged that you think it’s racist to appoint an African-American to a vacant Senate seat. Does it make it more “racist” that Nikki Haley, the governor who appointed Scott, is herself of Indian descent?

Why yes, because since she too is a Brown Person, she’s already an Auntie Tom sellout, and so is actually enabling this terrible Rehooligan racism which keeps tossing up Brown People like these, and Jindal, and West, and Cain, and Thomas, and Sowell, and Rice . .. . etc. etc. etc.

Yes, we’re fielding lots of those Brown People, but we don’t really mean it!

Did you vote for Obama? Because if you did that’s instant salvation from all charges of racism.

Now hold on, gimme a minute and I’m sure I can come up with some reason why voting for Him would *still* be racist!

Yes, Grasshopper. WHATEVER a conservative does, it is more racist – that is the nature of the universe.

Adolph L Reed is a big, BIG lefty.

Per Wickipedia: “Adolph L. Reed is a professor…specializing in race and American politics…An expert on racial and economic inequality, he is the founder of the Labor Party and a frequent contributor to the Progressive and The Nation. “

So naturally, in his fevered mind, any Black Republican is a “token” and not down for the struggle. The authentic African American votes Democrat.

“The authentic African American votes Democrat.”

Or else.

So he’s not “Black” as much as he is “Red.”

/Heh heh, you said he’s “not down.”
//Get down!

Well…I guess there’s “black” then there’s “black”

One more thing to add to the racism dictionary: Electing or appointing Black Conservatives is code for being racist.

There’s another one for the loathsome Whoopi Goldberg: there’s black, and there’s black-black.

No doubt he had good socialist parents who wanted to honor the most famous socialist of all time.
