So Chris Matthews said about President Obama: "He is post-racial, by all appearances," the liberal host said on the

Now before any of my left leaning friends try to defend Matthews' "slip of the tongue" or "poor wording", save your breath, I know what he MAY have meant to say, and what he MAY have been trying to communicate, HOWEVER, I know what he DID say and DID communicate.
I think he meant what he said, he just didn't quite understand how that type of thinking is a form of latent and socialized falling into the false dichotomy of "white superiority" and "black inferiority" that has been embedded in the collective psyche of our nation. "I guess we's black folk got's to hopes people fogets we's black..."...I'm Just Saying...
