Saying “Community Organizer” Is Now Racist

In an attempt to suppress discussion of Obama’s extremely dubious background[1] as a community organizer, New York’s second-string Governor David Paterson has declared that even mentioning the Obamessiah’s former job title is racist[2]:

I think the Republican Party is too smart to call Barack Obama “black” in a sense that it would be a negative. But you can take something about his life, which I noticed they did at the Republican Convention — a “community organizer.” They kept saying it, they kept laughing. […] I think where there are overtones is when there are uses of language that are designed to inhibit other people’s progress with a subtle reference to their race.

“Community organizer” can now join “black hole[3]” and “devil’s food cake[4]” on the list of phrases black politicians forbid us to speak.

Look for “inexperienced,” “unqualified,” “post turtle,” and “arrogant punk” to join the list soon.
