Gee... I woke up this morning and forgot I was a person. For a few terrifying moments, I thought I was penguin, and wondered where all the icebergs had gone.

These things happen.

Thank you massah.

That ship sailed loooong ago. Sorry, but the white liberal racism against Obama went unchecked in the primaries and folks can't get too upset about it now. I think it's just as racist for so many whites to treat Obama like he is a rare porcelain statue and can't do his job without massive work by everyone else but unfortunately most of us black folks go along with it.

And it doesn't matter what racist remarks Kerry, Mccaskill or Matthews have said, they 'support" Obama so it's okay. And fwiw I think Rod pointed out that stuff during the primaries and no one really cared then because they wanted Obama to win so badly. "Just poor choice of words" black folks will say, knowing of course they hate what he said.

That ship sailed long ago.

@ Garcon:

I'm sorry but was that supposed to be ... a joke? Amusing?

I've seen your blog and color me unimpressed. I'm sure you think you're being post-racial or multi-racial but ahem ... a white gay British man obsessed with younger muscular black American men is anything but post-racial. It's all about race with you and many other gay white men... or should I said big black bodies and big black dicks. And it would be nice if you could let American black gay men occasionally discuss our issues without your fetishes and commentary. M'may?

G.

matthews didnt say he thought obama was white he said he forgot obama was black. big difference.

“...a slight, nagging paternalism...”

Not so slight. A little more than nagging.

More like Bill Clinton's, “A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.”

GBM and GOP

"It's like being told "You don't sound like the rest of them" or "You don't really act black." And sorry that's not post-racial or a compliment."

Awww, poor Rod. Have some warm milk my black gay liberal friend. Are the black gay bloggers and "progressives" going to get outraged over this? Will the Democrats go into freakout mode? Or will you continue to apologize for this liberal white racist because he just looooves him so O'Bama!

A liberal white racist is still a racist! If Matthews were a Republican or on Fox you would demand his head. But he is on the liberal Obama network so no one comments.

Hey and how is that DADT repeal working out for you!!

"More like Bill Clinton's, “A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.”"

Oh, Jim, I'm sorry, but Clarence Thomas had it coming.

Dalton - ouch! That really hurts.

I'm actually mixed race and neither white nor British - but hey, don't let that stop you fulfilling your "pro-black = anti-white" agenda.

My blog's not about black men. It's about gay men, period. I chose not to live in a world of racial ghettos.

"it would be nice if you could let American black gay men occasionally discuss our issues without your fetishes and commentary"

Er... isn't Obama mixed race? And isn't it up to Rod if he wants to ban all white men, or anyone who's not black enough or American enough for your liking - from the site?

All these answers and more on the next episode of "I Hate White People - Get Them Out Of Here

"My blog's not about black men. It's about gay men, period. I chose not to live in a world of racial ghettos."

Oh really? All I see are black muscles and black dicks... oh i see! You mention gay rights here and there. How cute.

Thats nice you "chose not to live in a world of racial ghettos", virtual or otherwise, and sounds like the poster campaign for the gay Benetton. Unfortunately the reality is much different for the overwhelming number of black people who have no choice in the matter. And the fact you cannot even see that speaks for itself.

I'm sorry to tell you this Miss Gay Biracial Yorkshire 1985 ... but black gay men in America have it much different. No go have some tea and crumpets.

"A liberal white racist is still a racist! If Matthews were a Republican or on Fox you would demand his head. But he is on the liberal Obama network so no one comments."

Umm, I think many people are talking about this remark. But nice to see the gay Republicans have consented and allowed one or two Negroes to join their self hating club.

Gay, black and Republican. How much self hate can one queen put herself through? smh

Garçon Stupide

Dalton, the fact you need to resort to cheap shots to make your point speaks volumes.

People like you seek only to widen the divide, not make things better.

However, I'll take your valuable advice on board and only feature white models on my blog in future. That way you can accuse me of being a racist or exclusionary or something similar.

Gurls, just find a room already? M'kay

As I written at a couple of the other blogs, I've been the receipient of these comments for most of my life. I understand that it's meant to be a compliment but...

In my experience, as Rod says, a comment like this can also be a code for "you're not like THOSE black people." Some white folks even feel free to say the mose outrageous things about black folks in your face but they aren't talking about you becuase...well, you're not one of the "ghetto" blacks I suppose.

I do not think Matthews is a racist, per se, or... maybe I am but only to the extent that this is a racist system and I don't care how enlightened you maybe, it shows and some point or another.

Relax queens

Guys...

Seriously. Everyone knows Chris Mathews is a dumbass. What do you expect of him? Are you surprised that he is inarticulate?

That said, I appreciate his efforts here to at least bring race into the national political discussion. When you play gotcha with well-meaning dumbasses on stuff like this, you just encourage people to not talk about racial issues, then everyone loses.

So cut the dumbass a break, and focus on things really hurting black people...like Capitalism and the Police.

Well I did try to comment on this once but it didn't show up so if it does come up at some point and this looks like a double post I apologize.

Chris Mathews was not trying to say "Obama doesn't sound black" he clearly wasn't saying that, what he was saying was that in just 1 year in office that Obama made him forget he was the first black president, that he didn't even notice the color of his skin and just saw him for the man he is, shouldn't everyone be like that? shouldn't people appreciate his honesty in being willing to discuss it? To me this looks like some people trying to make this something other than what he clearly meant and other than what was being said.

I know it's offensive and understandably so when someone says "wow he sounds like an educated one" or "gee he doesn't sound black" but that wasn't at all what Chris said or what he meant. Chris should get credit for not being afraid to bring up ethnicity issues (I hate saying race, we are all the same race, human) at least Chris will say what he's thinking and let you judge him based on his real thoughts and not just say the same old pc stuff people throw out there but rarely ever mean.

I would think people should be more upset at Mary Matalin who on CNN said something about Obama out there being Rodney King asking us all to get along.
