They're not even pretending anymore

Back when I was growing up in the South, the worst epithet that could ever be placed upon a white person was that of "nigger-lover". Everybody knew you were supposed to hate black people, and if you didn't, if indeed, you said "hey, they're just people like anybody else", you were shunned as unfit for polite company. Well, that went away for a while, but that sewer of filth World Net Daily sent me an email today that it's *back*. Yeppers, author Erik Rush has released a new book via the WND Press saying that America's problem today is an outbreak of... nigger-lovers.

Seriously. "Negrophilia" -- nigger-loving -- is, apparently, according to this book, the affliction of people who are "race traitors" who like blacks more than they like their own race and thus elected President Obama. Oh, Mr. Rush doesn't use those words, of course. He's a polite racist, the new breed that uses fancy made-up words in place of our old racist words we used to use in the Bad Old Days in the South. But that's what he's basically saying, he's just plugging new made-up words into the old holes. He also says that blacks shouldn't like their own race more than other people's race, and the fact that they do is why black America has such troubles.

Nevermind that, as far as I can tell, he's full of shit -- one of the advantages I had as a white teacher in a black school was getting *much* more respect from the parents than the black teachers got, hardly the sort of "preference for things black" that Mr. Rush says is prominent. Rather, it's the fact that he resurrects those old memes from the Old South at all. These folks ain't even pretending anymore, which is why they are in the end doomed to irrelevancy because the younger generation by and large doesn't have time for that kind of nonsense.
