Those Mischievous Mulatto Fellows

(CNN) — A candidate for the Republican National Committee chairmanship said Friday the CD he sent committee members for Christmas — which included a song titled “Barack the Magic Negro” — was clearly intended as a joke.

“I think most people recognize political satire when they see it,” Tennessee Republican Chip Saltsman told CNN. “I think RNC members understand that.”

Damn dude, “Negro”? It makes it tough to rock effective, current satire when you’re communicating to a 19th-century audience. I heard the next big RNC hits take down the Mussulmen, Orientals and Papists. Mocking the Papists? I can’t believe they went there!

  1. “a Christmas gift”
    Hmmmh! Let’s see, A long time ago only Jews were God’s chosen people, then comes Jesus and teaches people about the love of God for his creation, he is crucified, dies and rises from the dead and promises to come back to judge humanity, his 12 disciples convert people regardless of race and ethnicity and we have a universal church.
    Then we get the Christian(followers of Christ) right and they judge people by the color of their skin, they talk to God daily but do not have the humility that the saints had after talking to the Lord of time, space and creation, they think he is their personal genie, “name it and claim it” They become increasingly xenophobic and spread their hate around the world even on Christmas day, the birth day of the aforementioned savior who died for the sins of the world. It is indeed a shame. “And Jesus wept.” For this reason there will be final judgment when humanity will realize how we have wronged God and each other by abusing his creation.

  2. Isn’t the archaic ref part of why it might be funny? (I doubt it is, but, it could be.) Its why your retort using similar terms is funny!

  3. I fully agree on the potential for humor, but when I listened to the tune, I feel like they skipped right over the potentially humorous archaic-reference part and wasted the opportunity. Hear for yourself:
