The McDonald’s beating going viral over the weekend was the latest example of the MSM losing its ability to control the dominant narrative of American race relations.
We may live in the Obamanation, but increasingly we also live in the world of social media, where Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, WordPress and smart phone technology allow ordinary citizens, even those who live in racially homogeneous enclaves, to directly connect with and get to know real authentic black people, not the carefully manufactured simulacrum of black people produced by the MSM and Hollywood.
Here in Alabama, White America discovered and fell in love with the black homosexual hair stylist Antoine Dodson of Huntsville’s Lincoln Park projects, who became an internet sensation last summer after he effeminately screamed “hide ya kids, hide ya wife” in a banal local news report about a black rapist who broke into his ghetto home.
Dodson’s “Bed Intruder Song” went viral (so far it has received over 77 million views) and catapulted him to the heights of fame in America. Last October, Dodson gave a live performance of Bed Intruder at the 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards.
Antoine Dodson capitalized on his newfound celebrity status to raise a lot of money and start a merchandise line. He has appeared in commercials advertising the new season of Tosh.0 which is slyly mainstreaming racial humor. Now he is moving to Los Angeles with his family to film the pilot episode of his own new reality tv show.
White people have always loved real black people. The minstrel show was America’s original form of mass entertainment. In the nineteenth century, blackface actors celebrated the antics of buffoonish, joyous, and musical negroes like Antoine Dodson before huge audiences of White people from every walk of life.
Before the creation of Black Run America, Amos ‘n’ Andy was the most popular comedy show on the radio. The NAACP waged total war against Amos ‘n’ Andy for decades before CBS finally acquiesced and took the popular show off the air in 1966.
Laughing at stupid black people has always been one of White America’s favorite past times. It is still the most popular and enduring form of White racism. Now thanks to Facebook, YouTube, and smart phones we have the freedom to do so again.
