MEDIAITE’S TOMMY CHRISTOPHER IS OBVIOUSLY A RACIST: I mean, who but a racist would assume that isn’t working has something to do with black people?

When I first saw the banner this afternoon, the multiple meanings were clear: President Obama‘s policies aren’t working, the Obama presidency isn’t working, President Obama…isn’t working, as in, doing any work. That’s not a nice thing to say about any president, but like it or not, it becomes a more loaded accusation when leveled at our first black president.

Christopher is obviously someone who reflexively thinks of black people as lazy. Sure, he says that some “friends” agreed with him, but they’re probably just bigots who share his prejudices. For shame. And shame on Mediaite for having this latter-day Theodore Bilbo on its staff!
