MUHAMMAD: Watch Out for a 'Post-Racial' Backlash

But the most haunting anniversary will be 75 years old when that one of dozens of Obama haters leads his legions to Washington demanding the president stop “worshiping Allah” and step down from office. Fully ONE FOURTH of all Republicans actually believe President Obama to be a Muslim, a socialist, or both.

That will be the anniversary of Kristallnacht, Nov. 9-10, 1938 – literally the night of the broken glass – when Jewish businesses were trashed in Germany, 91 Jews were murdered (sound like Tulsa 17 years earlier?) and a whopping 30,000 were arrested for being what Black people are in America today – successful. They were judges. They were CEOs. They were at the top of their game, before the Third Reich, before the endless pogroms.

As long as Black people are in want and dependent on White largesse and even the lowliest White person can feel superior to all Black folks regardless of the Black person’s achievement, then everything is “kosher.” But you let Black people rise up and defy that stereotype as is happening today, and Mr. Backlash is sure to follow.

Black people, White people believe, must be forcibly taught a lesson, and put back in their place! You can’t make this stuff up.

You just wait. We’ll all see what happens.
