Liberal racism

I have read several excuses for this poll which concludes that one-third of liberal democrats may not vote for Obama because of racial prejudice. On it's face, the poll seems ridiculous in concluding a large percentage of supposedly enlightened Americans still hold these prejudices almost a half-century after the fight for black civil rights and following decades of continuing indoctrination in the religion of diversity. But another recent event sheds this in a different light.

Sandra Bernhard's deranged anti-Palin rant included a vicious racial slur on black men. This large mass of human excrement warned Palin not to come into Manhattan or she'd be gang-raped by the "big black brothers."

Nevermind the racist epitaph of "big black brothers," I am focued on the common liberal perception that "gangs" of African-American males routinely target white women for rape. Statistically that liberal stereotype is absurd and there is no evidence for this. The Black Political Thought blog opines on this matter.
In fact, the play wears its politically VERY correct heart on its sleeve with its indictment of America as "A Man’s World, It’s a White Man’s World, It’s a F–ked Up White Man’s Racist World" and can only be suggested to be racist in its content if one is hell-bent on protecting White Folk for Sandra’s blistering indictment. When Sandra warns Sarah Palin not to come into Manhattan lest she get gang-raped by some of Sandra’s big black brothers, she’s being provocative, combative, humorous, and yes, let’s allow, disgusting. Really? She's being disgusting.

Who in the world finds the suggestion of gang-rape humorous? Why did she have to make it racial by saying "big black brothers?" Isn't that an affront to blacks everywhere?

According to news reports, the D.C. Jewish Community Center is supposedly very happy with their Bernhard show, and partied with Bernhard on opening night. Evidently, according to News Busters, they’re in tune with her right-bashing rage:

We’re proud of our producing -- proud of Sandra’s sense of timing -- taking the fight out to the house and to the street beyond, channeling so much of our rage and frustration at the bizarre recent twists of fortune since Karl Rove trotted out Sarah Palin for John McCain to briefly meet and then get in bed with.Sandra’s face is hanging 10 feet tall in a banner over the DCJCC steps and we’re proud that she’s a new emblem and ambassador for our theater and our center. She’s not the only one who represents us. But her large heart, her generous talent, and her big mouth are all a big part of who we are.
I am not exaggerating by stereotyping of white liberal Democrats as scare-mongering racists and bigots. A google search revealed not one liberal blog or columnist in the first several result pages criticizing Bernhard for her remarks. I can only conclude that they see nothing out of the ordinary in what she said and wholeheartedly agree with her.

Being rooted in slavery and fertilized by a century of Klansman, there should be little surprise that the Democratic Party remains the home of racism into the 21st Century.
