For some reason, Michelle Malkin doesn’t mind hanging out with dudes who flash swastikas to criticize Obama but thinks Jeezy is bigoted for celebrating the fact that the president is black. I know, I know, I should leave it alone, but at least it gives me an excuse to link to the song, which remains rad and I haven’t listened to it in a couple of weeks.

I have no idea how you can listen to "My President Is Black" and think it’s remotely racist — "For all my nephews and nieces, I will email Jesus/tell ’em forward to Moses/ and CC Allah" might be theologically dodgy, but it’s a clear message of inclusion — unless you simply do not think it’s appropriate for black people to be proud of the first black president. That might indicate something ugly about you, though.
