Letter: Selective sensitivity

The Cagle Cartoon on July 12 was stunning. It was a loaf of white bread boldly labeled “Romney — Classic Enriched Whitebread” being spoken to by a jar of mayonnaise labeled as “Bring Out the Bland” and saying, “Honestly Mitt, I think we’d be a match made in heaven.”

I wonder if Cagle would have the gonads to print an Oreo cookie, watermelon or any other demeaning racist food pictorial of President Obama, and if they did, would newspapers publish it?

Don’t bother replying; my query is rhetorical. We know the answers.

This cartoon arrives on the heels of the New York Times publishing a left-wing literary trash piece by “culture critic” Lee Siegel bemoaning Romney as the “Whitest White Man,” and that’s only one example of more of the same hitting the media recently about Mitt Romney and his “whiteness.”

There is no subtle racism where Romney bashing is concerned.

I recently wrote a commentary in The Signal on the subject of Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and their demonstrations of racism. The original form was raw with presenting the real language and facts as put out by the reverends.

Because it was viewed as inflammatory, the version published was diluted and abbreviated. I make that point only to highlight that media discretions are cherry-picked.

The real brew is this. Any disagreement of Barack Obama’s policies, statements or actions immediately labels the dissenter as a racist.

Whatever positive forward measures America gained from the racism revolts of the 1960s have been designedly and facilely propelled backward with the Left’s hell-bent determination to get and keep Barack Obama as president.
