Creep Me Out: Chinese is the 'New Nigga'?

I confess to being a very confused creepy ass cracka, trying desperately to go New School, as recently elucidated by Rachel Jeantel:

Nigga....the whole world say it's a racist word. ...around 2000, 2001 - they change it around. That means a male....any kind of male.  Any kind, (even) Chinese...my Chino...but (say) nig-grrrrrrr - (and I) advise you not to be around black people, because they not gonna have it like that.  - Rachel Jeantel on CNN, July 2013.  

Stoney gave bootleg haircuts for 25 cent.....he put a bowl on your head, and he cut around it...made all the niggas look Chinese...that way they could get a job on the railroad. They wouldn't hire no niggas see. Niggas want real money.  Chinese work for that yang money see...niggas didn't want that sh_t see"  - Richard Pryor as Mudbone in Miss Rudolph and the Monkey, circa 1978

Frankly, I'm not sure how to reconcile these two very disparate views on African-American relationships with Chinese-Americans, just one of the many national puzzles we face in the aftermath of the Zimmerman verdict. And we thought the new class of "white-Hispanic" was confusing. However, in honor of Miss Jeantel, I'm going to do my best to leave "the old school" and join "the new school" - and figure this stuff out.  From what I can tell, my old school ways "creep her out," so in the spirit of racial sensitivity, reparations, bipartisanship, gender neutrality, sequestration, looking for the union label, compassionate conservatism, Occupy Wall Street, doing it for the children, and no doubt Mother Earth, I really want to get this right - and figure out the new school vernacular. (I know, old school.)

So please Miss Jeantel, cut me some slack. (DAMN! I sound old school again.) I'm just a free lance writa after all, and I figure you'll soon have an honorary degree and be a college professa somewhere - where your Obama Care benefits might cover things like fingernail extensions, paid for by taxes on tanning beds no doubt. Or maybe you'll be on The View, or the Kardashians, or Tyler Perry's House of whatever it is.

By the way, do you have Janet Napolitano's 4-1-1 by any chance? I hear she's hiring soon, having failed her way into a job as a big time California administrata.

All of this is down right dizzying frankly, and it's getting hard to keep track of the playas without a program. For the record, Jenteal ironically spilled all of this info to Piers Morgan, perhaps the whitest man in the universe. To my knowledge, she did not call him a nigga. I guess we all have standards.

We also know from Miss Jeantel's information that cracka, as in creepy ass cracka, is not a racist term either, as cracka refers apparently to a cop, of any color -- and perhaps, a gay cop at that. Or, in the new school lingo, a cop who is "that kinda way." For some strange reason, this image reminds me of The Village People. Then again, so does Piers Morgan. Still, if you ask me, old school David Axelrod is what a creepy ass cracka looks like, and I've never thought of him as gay. Or straight for that matter. And I've yet to see an official reaction on this new classification of "that kinda way" from crackas in the LGBTcommunity. Or is it LBGT? All of this is so confusing.

But in reality, none of it is really that funny.

What this all boils down to is that the trial, and what the jury focused on, was not race. This of course is an inconvenient problem for the booming racial grievance industry, which includes among others Barack Obama, Eric Holder, the NBC family of networks, the Democratic Party, numerous black churches -- and of course, Reverends Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. For this community, the Zimmerman trial was about the race, the whole race, and nothing but the race, so help us almighty media.

In fact, NBC is defending their shameful editing of 9-1-1 tapes by saying that hell, everybody in the media was doing it...so what's the big deal? I guess that's argumentum ad parem pressura, but the better tack for NBC might be argumentum ad Neilsum ratum.  Nobody watches us!

Yet NBC's naked attempt to use this trial to ignite nothing short of a race war is as pre-ordained as it is despicable. It is inevitable because contrary to popular belief and conventional beltway wisdom, the election of Obama was guaranteed to tear our nation apart at some point. The notion that he was some kind of fanciful post racial healer -- almost from another galaxy -- was absurd from the get go.  No liberal politician, especially a black one, can possibly heal anything racial. That's right -- it's simply not possible.

Consider that liberal leaders of color mostly seem to come from the grievance wing of racial politics. Thus, as professional agitators and race baiters by definition, their ascension to power will necessarily take on an adversarial tone. There is no way around it.  They have gotten where they are by being adversarial towards all conservatives, Republicans and most Caucasians -- and they are not about to change once they grab the reigns of power. Quite the contrary.

Think of racial tensions as a wound on the nation, and the race agitation industry, the institution that gave us Obama, Sharpton, Jackson and Holder, is in the business of specifically pouring salt into the wound, and generally making sure it festers and never heals. Their efforts are then multiplied by butt-insky white liberals, who project their internal guilt by constantly picking at the scab as well. This scar heals just fine when ignored over time and people just go about their lives, but that dynamic is sort of inconvenient when your cash flow model or your political turn out model is dependent on a continuing flow of blood.

This is known by those who benefit, and there is not a single politician or professional race hustler who's life will be improved by acknowledging progress in this area. Without the grievance industry, figures like Sheila Jackson Lee, Emanuel Cleaver and John Lewis would be largely irrelevant government employees, representing safe liberal districts in Congress, and heard of by almost no one but their constituents.  Human nature is a powerful force, and people tend to gravitate towards positions that enrich them. Beyond any doubt, it enriches and empowers certain elements to pretend that we are all Mississippi in 1950 now, so those elements exist in a bizarre media/political/community organizing sphere where is it still Mississippi in 1950.

The New York Times, the NBC family of networks, many black churches, Hollywood and Big Education, all are ironically part of the progressive universe and yet are stuck in this racial time warp. And this was unavoidable once Obama was elected. Obama in power was always destined to appoint grievance pimps like Van Jones and Eric Holder to positions of authority. That's who he is, and they are merely extensions of him. The grievance pimps live for only one thing: to finally get even with all the creepy ass crackas. And no, with due respect to Miss Jeantel and Rush Limbaugh, I'm not talking about gay cops, and neither are Obama and Holder.  This is about reparations and getting even. So obsessed are they with this mission that an Hispanic Democrat who tutors black kids and votes for Obama will do for a cracka in a pinch. It goes way beyond that now, though.

We are all creepy ass crackas now, which was the point of electing a community organizer as President in the first place. It could end up no other way.
