Congressional Black Caucus: The Word "Cool" is Racist

The Congressional Black Caucus, a taxpayer-funded racist organization that restricts its membership to people of a certain color, thinks the word "cool" is racist if applied to Obama:
Angela Rye, Executive Director of the Congressional Black Caucus, argued that President Obama has struggled during his first term due to racially-motivated opposition from conservatives who dislike having a black president.

"This is probably the toughest presidential term in my lifetime," Rye said during CSPAN's Q&A yesterday. "I think that a lot of what the president has experienced is because he's black. You know, whether it's questioning his intellect or whether or not he's Ivy League. It's always either he's not educated enough or he's too educated; or he's too black or he's not black enough; he's too Christian or not Christian enough. There are all these things where he has to walk this very fine line to even be successful."

She said that "a lot" of conservative opposition is racially-charged, citing the use of the word "cool" in an attack ad launched by Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS superPAC.

"There's an ad, talking about [how] the president is too cool, [asking] is he too cool? And there's this music that reminds me of, you know, some of the blaxploitation films from the 70s playing in the background, him with his sunglasses," Rye said. "And to me it was just very racially-charged. They weren't asking if Bush was too cool, but, yet, people say that that's the number one person they'd love to have a beer with. So, if that's not cool I dont know what is.

She added that "even 'cool,' the term 'cool,' could in some ways be deemed racial [in this instance]."
We know that ANY opposition to Obama will be declared as racist, and that ANY term applied to the "Cool One" is little more than a racist dogwhistle. All that is a given, so it's best to just ignore the racists who hear the dogwhistles and move on.

“This is probably the toughest presidential term in my lifetime.”

If Obama were as good as they said, he'd make it look easy.

“I think that a lot of what the president has experienced is because he's black. You know, whether it's questioning his intellect or whether or not he's Ivy League.”

He could've released his college transcripts long ago if he wanted the issue to go away.

“It's always either he's not educated enough or he's too educated...

Barack Obama went to Harvard and became an educated fool. -Bobby Rush

“...or he's too black or he's not black enough...”

We ignore the president's whiteness, but it's there. -Chris Rock

“...he's too Christian or not Christian enough.”

I've never seen Obama accused of being too Christian. Too Muslim or too anti-Catholic or an anti-Semite maybe, but never too Christian.

“There are all these things where he has to walk this very fine line to even be successful.”

Obama goes to whichever side of the line will get him votes and money. For example, when Barack Hussein Obama -a Chicagoan who grew up in Hawaii -visits the south, he gives speeches in a southern drawl. Did Bill Clinton ever fake a Yankee accent?

Would she be happier if Obama were called un-cool? Fine, he's not cool -he's cold.

Some people are either so incredibly stupid, or think everybody else is.

She may be both.
