Racial tones continued

In relation to my post the other day, Mattera has this posted on Breitbart’s Big Journalism:

In the very first paragraph, Zernike writes, “How can conservatives win the youth vote that overwhelmingly went for Barack Obama in 2008? At the Conservative Political Action Conference, apparently, some are betting on using racial stereotypes.”

Her evidence? Nothing I actually said, but to her tin ears, I was allegedly channeling a “Chris Rock” voice.  Yes, Chris Rock.

Regarding my closing statement, Zernike opines, “Can we save our generation from Obama zombies, he [Mattera] asked. He answered himself by borrowing the president’s campaign slogan: ‘Yes, my brothahs and sistahs. Yes we can!’”  Obviously, Zernike is insinuating I purposely mispronounced the words “brothers” and “sisters” in order to mock black people, particularly President Obama.

[…]

Moreover, the Left continues to devalue the meaning of the word racism. To them, politicians driving pickup trucks and Tea Party activists protesting government spending have racial overtones. Remember when the media elites told us that the election of Barack Obama would heal America’s racial wounds? Ha! Just a year into his presidency and all of a sudden delivering a speech with a Brooklyn accent is treated like a hate crime.

He also calls for the NYT to fire the “journalist” in question.  They wont, but it’s worth a shot.  The article is very short.  Read it all here.
