Can You Spot the Racism?

Long story short, a middle school coach writes a song criticizing Obama and sends it out to parents of the students he coaches. Parents complain, some accusing the coach of racism, and the coach gets fired.

Now, I’m not going to make any judgment as to whether or not the firing was correct. I just want to see if anyone can spot the racism in this song. No, seriously, I can’t find any hint of anything which could even remotely be termed racism. At all.

I think we need to recognize a new kind of “Godwin’s Law.” The closer your political opponent is to losing, the more likely it is that they will accuse you of racism. Maybe we can call it “Dilorenzo’s Law.” How does that sound?

    1. I think your exaggerating the accusations of racism here. Yes I read the stupid songs lyrics and no I do not believe it has any racial overtones. His boss told him that some of the parents had said the song had racial overtones. A few not all.

    2. Karma’s a bitch. I bet Mr. Glover was one of many conservatives who back in 2003, were calling for boycotts of the Dixie Chicks, calling them “unpatriotic” or “traitors” because they criticized Bush. Now the shoes on the other foot and Glover is whining about his firing to anyone who’ll listen.

    3. I was going to say Mr. Glover shouldn’t quit his day ob, but that would be rubbing it in. Instead if you read the lyrics and replace “44″ with “43″ and “43″ with “42″, well the song will be accurate.
