At the Tea Party California Caucus meeting in Fresno this weekend an unflattering cartoon image of Maxine Waters, showing her with a messy, unkept weave, big lips, and deluded wide open eyes was flashed on a screen just after Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Elk Grove) delivered the keynote address Friday evening.
Woody Woodrum of the conservative activist group California Screaming Eagles told the crowd that it was Waters' reaction when she heard McClintock was coming to speak to California tea party members, drawing a big laugh in the room.
“It was just a joke,” Woodrum said later.
Woodrum said it wasn’t meant to be mean-spirited. He said the photo has been floating around the Internet. [MORE]
Racists enjoy ridiculing Maxine Waters b/c they love demeaning Black people; pretending it is just about Maxine Waters is indirectly part of the inside joke. Recently, Bill O'Reilly claimed Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-CA) was wearing a “James Brown wig. [MORE] That generic put down was aimed at all Black women who wear weaves or wigs. In 2014, posters featuring a black-and-white illustration of Waters bordered with the words “Poverty Pimp” were plastered by white racists on streets and near freeways and businesses throughout Los Angeles, Inglewood and the South Bay. The ad portrayed a wrinkled caricature of Waters depicted with red dollar signs in her eyes and the words “Niggas Betta Have My Money!” behind her. [MORE]
Like Obama racism, this of course is directed @ YOU. White folks undercover think this shit is funny because most white people hate black people. If you don't know this about white people, virtually all else that you know about them will only confuse you.
The silly messaging has no strategic effect on Maxine Waters. Waters has been re-elected consistently with at least 70% of the popular vote since 1990. She is the most senior of the 12 black women currently serving in the United States Congress. Representing California's 43rd Congressional District, Waters is the ranking member on the House Financial Services Committee and the Chief Deputy Whip. [MORE]
The messaging only serves to demean Black people - its true purpose. Just an excuse for a racist to engage in comparison, ridicule hair, lips, mouth & write the word "nigga" about 30 times and put it all over the city. White folks and Black jokes. Ha ha ha.
Racists live in a state of comparison, which Dr. Blynd defines as follows:
comparison - a disease of the mind due to the ignorance of uniqueness. Each individual is unique and beyond the scope of comparison. Those who fall victim to comparison will either become egoistic or bitter. You don't belong to any hierarchy - nobody is lower or higher than what "you" imagine yourself and "others" to be. Comparison creates differences or distinctions only when there is not uniformity. Comparison limits the possibility of living in the moment.
