imageRush Limbaugh's decided that Obama's hiding his real ethnicity from the American public...and he'll expose the truth to an unwitting public.

These polls on how one-third of blue-collar white Democrats won't vote for Obama because he's black, and -- but he's not black. Do you know he has not one shred of African-American blood? He doesn't have any African -- that's why when they asked whether he was authentic, whether he's down for the struggle. He's Arab. You know, he's from Africa. He's from Arab parts of Africa. He's not -- his father was -- he's not African-American. The last thing that he is is African-American. I guess that's splitting hairs, I don't -- it's just all these little things, everything seems upside-down today in this country.

Unfortunately for Limbaugh, Kenya has an Arab population of less than one percent.

Non-Africans (Arabs, Asians, and Europeans) account for no more than 1% of the population.

Let's account for all the many, many types of racism at work here:

1.) Obama's a different, worse type of minority than the already bad type of minority he was before! He's like a super-nigger!

2.) Obama's hiding his Arab heritage because it's something shameful! Even worse than being a welfare-loving, crack-addicted homeboy from Chitown!

3.) Let's manufacture the entire ethnic makeup of a country based on no fact or verifiable claim whatsoever in order to smear someone for having said background. Kenyans also eat white babies, in case you hadn't heard.

If you have any more, leave them in comments.

There's a reason every one of the major racist and bigoted attacks against Obama is about him lying. Simply saying that Obama is X is too blatant - it's like being sexist by walking into a bridal shop and remarking how much it smells like fish. This kind of racism allows you to impart shame by putting it on the target: Obama is so ashamed of his background that he has to hide it! Then, when the target is forced to deny it, they're making an affirmative case for a hated group in front of the people who most hate them and have been primed to look for sympathy towards the hated group.

It's the when did you stop beating your dark-skinned wife school of racism. There's no real way to escape it short of shaming those who participate in it for being total bags of flaming cock.
