A reader on the Black Agenda Report said this about Rahm Emanuel as Mayor of Chicago, comparing him to President Barack Obama. What do you think?
While I cannot predict exactly what Rahm will do in while he holds office, I can predict what he will NOT do. He will NOT appear in front of a Black audience and brag about how much he upset some members of the Jewish community by paying too much attention to "Black" interests. He will NOT repeat over and over and over again that he is not the "Jewish" or "White" mayor of Chicago. He will NOT make a grand show of avoiding being seen around or with Jewish people or with other White people. He will NOT stay away from Jewish organizations nor will he steer clear of venues which are obviously run by pro-Israel groups. When he appears at these venues, he will NOT go to the podium to offer trite, condescending criticisms of Jews, the state of Israel, or of White ethnics. He will NOT repudiate any Jewish or Israeli leader, institution. or organization, no matter how reprehensible or odious their statements or behavior may be. In fact he will NOT stage a single "Sistah Souljah moment" against anyone from any White ethnic group. He will NOT do any of these things NOR, as a White man in America, will he be expected to do so by anyone, Black, White, or Other. Welcome to Post-Racial America circa 2010. I for one, am so damn glad that we finally got equality…NOT!
