Quit Digging, Dweeb Derb

John Derbyshire followed up his controversial remarks on race and Barack Obama this afternoon with another similarly stupid post. In the second post, Derbyshire assures an inquiring world that he would have voted for the African-American Colin Powell for President in 1996, had Powell been the Republican nominee.

Although Powell "could 'talk black' when he thought it was required of him," Derbyshire helpfully explains, "Powell doesn't care about being black." Now, as for Obama?--he "cares a lot about being black" and would be a "race-obsessed President."

Basically black Presidents are like everything else in America: IOKIYAR.
