Street Cred?

Jerry at From On High has this tidbit. "Legitimacy on the street?" This is absolutely disgusting. You would think that a so called executive of a major television network would be a little more astute than this. Old South plantation indeed Jerry. This is a back handed slap against Mr. Obama and his achievements. I'm not a fan of the One, but let's give the man his due. He won the election and is the President-elect.  To insinuate that his legitimacy is linked only to his skin color is simplistic at best and racist at worst.

For better or worse, Mr. Obama's legitimacy is based ONLY on the decision of the American people to grant him legitimacy. No more, no less. To suggest anything else is to appeal to the base passions of racists everywhere.
