(Monterey Brookman) – The latest media analysts are rapping the concept that white men are dead or dying politically, influentially and frankly, it sounds like they are to be deemed contemptible.
So, let’s see, who are these white guys? Well, what fascinates me is that (and I’m going to stick with Home Means Nevada, since our State is 78% white according to the last Census) we need to write off around one-third of our State as politically useless.
Ah, but here’s the rub! I have several Hispanic friends who are blue-eyed blondes. Hmmm, this may get tricky. And then there are all my Jewish friends — many blue-eyed, blond, Russian, Polish, German (forevermore!), South African (meaning White) and French, English, European, meaning White, you see.
Ah, now it gets seriously murky: I have many Persian friends who are indeed Aryan; yup, white as snow, as are my Turkish, Lebanese — wow, a ton of Middle and Near East, Mediterranean guys that have got to go.
And, so sad, what can I say to my Italian friends — hey, maybe at least the Sicilians can get a lotta’ sun and darken their skin (oops, I forgot — wasn’t Ol’ Blue Eyes Sicilian? Forget about ’em). Oh, what about my Irish and Scottish pals — yikes, they’ll never make it. (Has anyone told the Kennedy’s? Perhaps they’ll get a pass.)
Think this is funny? I don’t. It sickens me that anyone is so brainless and heartless at this point in our Nation’s history to say that color matters! What happened to character counts? What happened to gender equality? Did we work this hard on civil rights to end up here?!?
Our Founding Fathers were a bunch of super smart, extremely courageous, hard-charging White Men. If being full color is what will qualify future leaders, Obama is out — last time I checked, his mother was white. Let’s get off the shallowness of melanin and get down to integrity, virtues, values, inner strength, confidence, intellect, education … and simply find qualified leaders…of whatever race, color or gender.
