Cynical Appeal

This should be a Saturday Night Live skit.  Here we have the President of the United States making a purely race-based appeal to African-Americans in support of his campaign.  The whole notion of identity politics is bad enough, but to see that he’s actually launched this in order to support his campaign speaks to a sort of twisted sickness that is the root of our national problem:  This video is divisive by virtue of its very existence.  The sad part is that with a liberal media backing him, nobody will question this.  I can’t believe the United States has fallen to the point where somebody like Barack Obama can make this sort of appeal and nobody will even remark on the underlying sick nature of his proposition.  African-Americans should vote for him because he’s African-American.  That’s the message.
