"White Men Are Allowed to Get Angry"
This is a good line from a good piece about the Trayvon Martin Zimmerman trial fiasco. I got pretty nauseated at a dinner a while back when someone accused Obama of being an Uncle Tom--a white man accused him that is...I wanted to smack him. Of course if Obama so much as pounded a desk (as Clinton liked to do) he would be instantly vilified. I have a lot of feelings about that as my step dad was black and was always being stopped and searched at airports, having to remain ever so calm. There is a certain aspect of what has been labeled the emo-prog reaction to Obama that just totally sucks.
