I Have a Louisianan Dream
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
Bobby Jindal whose ancestry is Inidan wins the governorship of Louisiana. I do not expect lefties and Democrats to be celebrating, but here is one very cheap comment on Bobby's victory:
I caution people in evaluating the apparent success of Bobby Jindal.
Jindal, the first Indian American in U.S. history to be elected governor last Saturday — in Louisiana of all places — is what I call a “man without color.”Normally, you’d describe a person “without color” as white, but even white is a color. Jindal’s a guy who seems to aspire to being totally colorless (that’s not to say bloodless, though we are talking about a professional politician here).
In the past, this sort of character might have been labeled a chameleon, but even that’s not quite Jindal.
He doesn’t change skin tone. His skin is still as dark and constant given his immigrant Hindu parents from Punjab.
Emil rips on Bobby Jindal for cheering LSU as his first victory speech comments were about LSU beating Aubrun (boo! I have a cousin who is an Auburn Alumni). Isn't this what America is about? Find threads of unity great or trivial and focusing on them? Sure, Bobby could have talked about how he is emblematic of the success of Martin Luther King Jr. how some guy with dark skin and Asian ancestry could be elected governor to a redneck state. What good would that do? The later speech is the scissors to our communal fabric and the former is thread and needle.
The only tool in the belt of Emil and his ilk is charging racism. When you have only one tool all situations call for that tool. Emil, time to buy some more tools.
