Brown Man Gets Michelle Malkin's Goat




One of my previous posts, the tongue-in-cheek bit of humor I whipped up last week titled When Are White People Going To Stop Looking For A Handout?, has struck a nerve out there in the blogosphere, partly because I took great pleasure in insulting Michelle Malkin in the piece, but mostly because it took the twisted logic of the age-old conservative chestnut "when are black people going to stop waiting for a handout?" and flipped the script.

Angry visitors have been coming to Brown Man Thinking Hard in droves since yesterday to leave their two cents worth of opinions about the sharply barbed bon mots that were liberally sprinkled through this satirical piece.

People like these become some of the most thin-skinned beings on the planet when one of the aphorisms they have concocted and perpetuated over the years is altered with the substitution of one word - "white" - in a way that points out just how absurd the original version has become. All of a sudden, the phrase isn't so funny anymore.

The even sadder thing about all of this is how political blowhards like Malkin can prostitute the Republican Party party the way she does, in effect turning the party's principles, which are simple, human scale ones, into caricatures of themselves, the same way rappers exaggerate what it’s like to live in the 'hood.

My parents taught me to be a good host, though, even when your guests are prone to act up. So if you folks who are sightseeing really want to know what the Brown Man is all about, feel free to read through the archives here. There are over a hundred thousand originally produced words in the 300 odd posts here that demonstrate the commitment this Brown Man has made to expand the political narrative in this country beyond the binary version that is currently popularized on TV and in the press.

A good place to start, if I were a hostile visitor who was looking for more racially oriented material by that uppity, thinks he's smarter than us Kris Broughton to complain to my buddies about is the four part series I did last year, White Americans and The Politics of Race. I'd print it all out, get a good cup of coffee, and let 'er rip - if you don't read anything else here, this is the series I would say is a must.

Rush The Magic Ego is a little more intimate, with a few revelations about Kris Broughton's background that might surprise those of you hostile visitors who automatically think "Democrat" and "liberal" when you run into African Americans.

Don’t let the title to Aaahh! Mandingo Is Running The Country scare you – it is really a thoughtful meditation about those who pine for the nostalgia of a Norman Rockwell version America. A version, Kris Broughton is happy to announce, that will not be coming back.

I know a lot of you who might be coming over here are more used to the high pitched sounds of parrot chirping than the low, melodic, practically silent resonance associated with deep thinking, so take it slow. Think of this site like a library – you can come in anytime you want to check out a selection for free. Even if you don't agree with me, or look like me, I can guarantee that you will learn something here if you wander through enough of these archives.

Tell Michelle I said hello.

Keep telling it, Brown Man.

Maybe Michelle's head will explode.

So, you think that statements like:

"I see a lot of commentary on the political end of the web, both from those who feel as good as we do about this momentous event to those who feel that the country is about to go to hell in a handbasket because the man in the White House is black.

do anything to, as you put it, "expand the political narrative in this country beyond the binary version that is currently popularized on TV and in the press"?

1) I would like to see binary proof of your statement that those who are concerned are concerned because President Obama is black.

2) President Obama is not black. He is, in fact half black and half white (and I don't mean down the middle) but you and he prefer to ignore this.

3) This type of publication does not expand the political narrative but pushes already divided people farther appart in that - as far as I can tell - is a blatant lie, again, unless you have proof.

4) I will not be browsing your blog as you are obviously trying to drive traffic in your direction rather than expanding the political narrative and I will not be participating.

No, Hickman and Brown, I doubt that Michelle's head will explode from your futile baiting.

You see unlike you, Michelle is not full of hate and resentment based on the color of her skin.

Unlike you, Michele is NOT a Nihilist.

Admit your philosophical ties to Islamic Jihad and be done with it.

As you stir the abyss of hatred so you shall reap the abyss.

Ad Infinitum into the abyss of race/class/gender... you're sick Nihilism of the post-modern dialectic.

Who are you kidding? Michelle Malkin is so full of hate until she hates herself. Michelle Malkin resents her own skin. She has built up anger because she's not a blue eyed blond! Pitiful little witch!

Traffic Cop: Why don’t you try asking any “half-black, half-white” acquaintances of yours (oh say over the age of 35) what his/her race is? Based on your post, I’m sure you would be surprised.

While you’re at it, why don’t you research state laws concerning racial classification? In my own state, you were considered black if you are 1/16 black. In other words, if one of your great-great grandparents was black, then your were black (despite your physical appearance).

Perhaps you’ll have to review Gregor Mendel’s pea experiment to fully understand this!

Exactly who do you think Brown Man’s posts are dividing? Seriously?

You just don't understand that what you wrote was offensive. You have undermined what credibility you may have been able build with readers on issues of race. Boiling a political movement down to racial stereotypes is what we're supposed to be fighting. Or did I misinterpret President Obama and Attorney General Holder's statements on the subject?

Bryan, it is literally impossible to be offensive when referring to Michelle Malkin. She's a prostitute...a low self-esteem WHORE.
