Those wonderful, "tolerant" Democrats

Just as we've known all along, Democrats that purport to value "diversity" are talking about physical traits (gender, race, sexuality) and not intellectual traits (political leanings and preferences). Case in point:
Black Democratic leaders in Maryland say that racially tinged attacks against Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele in his bid for the U.S. Senate are fair because he is a conservative Republican.
Such attacks against the first black man to win a statewide election in Maryland include pelting him with Oreo cookies during a campaign appearance, calling him an "Uncle Tom" and depicting him as a black-faced minstrel on a liberal Web log.

Operatives for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) also obtained a copy of his credit report (illegally, I might add. - Ed.) -- the only Republican candidate so targeted.

But black Democrats say there is nothing wrong with "pointing out the obvious."
"Obvious", huh? It's just "obvious" that a black man must be a liberal. If that's not a collectivist mentality on display, I don't know what is. But black liberals throwing Oreos at a black Republican? Who knew that they were capable of such lunacy?! I tell you, the next thing you know, you'll have a major city's editorial accusing Clarence Thomas of needing an asterisk next to his name when referring to his blackness...since he's not really black. (Note to self: get the TV repaired, since he sure looks particularly black on it!)

Most Americans already see boobs like Charlie Rangel, Maxine Waters, Cynthia "Jihad Cindy" McKinney, Sheila Jackson-Lee, and John Conyers (just to name a few) as not exactly being the most brilliant minds in the black community. It doesn't help when you have asshats like those in the above story perpetrating such cowardly and despicable acts of moonbattery.

Can't black liberals simply think that black conservatives are wrong, or misguided? Apparently, no. They think that black conservatives are self-loathing people who need not stray from the leftist master's plantation.

I'd like to pose a question or two. Mainly rhetorical, but if you wish to answer, I won't stop you.

1. If the plight of the average American black is so deplorable, and the average American black votes for Democrats (and have done so for about 30 years now), then exactly what does the average American black have to show for 3+ decades of voting for Democrats? Exactly where has it gotten them? Isn't the definition of "insanity" described as "doing the same thing repeatedly, yet expecting different results"?

2. If, on the other hand, the average American black is not doing that poorly, and thusly attributes his/her pleasant lot in life to Democrats, then what's the damned problem?

Let an independent, successful, free-thinking black man tilt a little (or a lot) towards the left on the political spectrum, and he's a genius...a brilliant mind. However, let an independent, successful, free-thinking black man tilt a little (or a lot) towards the right on the political spectrum, and he's a pariah to "his people" "Uncle Tom" and a sell-out.

Democrats...the party of "tolerance"! Un-freaking-believable.
