Woah, that’s some pretty nasty venom there. Especially all the snide comments implying Thomas is an ungrateful black man.
In short, “Hey blacks, if you aren’t pulling for the Democrats, you’re an ungrateful black bastard. And I’ll rip you a new one for not being black enough, and thinking outside of the approved black political box. How dare you hold conservative views. You’re all (blacks) supposed to think alike!” Dowd’s piece is ugly stuff.
And don’t even try to pretend she wasn’t thinking along those lines. She might as well have called him Uncle Tom and shortened up the article by a large margin. Note his political views piss her off. And then, in the same article, she’s painting him as some traitor to his race…yeah…
Wanna pull some quotes. I read both articles and totally missed the racism.
