Marketing Geniuses Unite!
I can’t find the YouTube version of this video, so you’re just going to have to follow this link. Make sure you keep your eyes on the sideline towards the end of the Vikings run into the end zone. Trust me, someone in the Dallas Cowboys front office is either a latent racist, a complete and utter idiot, or maybe even both. Nothing like scaring the hell out of a bunch of black NFL players by placing the Young Klan Kids of Greater Dallas Fort Worth on the sidelines. What, you couldn’t find any nooses to hang from the goal posts Dallas? The Cowboys halftime show for next week? You got it — Civil War re-enactment. Let me guess? The South didn’t lose that war, it’s just halftime, right? You stay classy Dallas; you stay classy.
Speaking of racist, I just found out today that in 1923, in the case of UNITED STATES v. BHAGAT SINGH THIND, that the Supreme Court of the U.S. argued and declared that Indians (re: people from the country of India) are not of the Caucasian persuasion (i.e., white). I’m sorry, the answer we were looking for was not white. Not white. The correct answer was not white. Thank you for playing though. Who knew, right? Anyway, I found it rather interesting that the highest court of the land was debating such an issue in the first place. Here’s the nut of the case.
Is a high-caste Hindu, of full Indian blood, born at Amritsar, Punjab, India, a white person within the meaning of section 2169, Revised Statutes?
Remember the best part about this whole case kids — in the supreme court, someone has to write a dissenting view point on all rulings (if at least one justice in the minority existed), counter arguing that Indians are indeed white, Aryan, honkies, or cracka ass crackas if you will. Now there’s a writing assignment for your ass!
Which reminded me, I’ve always thought (joked) about how England, Russia, and Germany—for centuries—have been part of a super secret organization in charge of voting new races into their little white race club. I’m of Irish decent and I think we got voted “onto the island” as they call it, around the turn of the century. Yay! It’s beyond me how they got that by them. At any rate, this was just after they voted to let the Italians in and right before they voted in several of the old Soviet satellite nations (e.g., Czech Republic, Poland). I had no idea this process actually took place and certainly had no idea it was something in the realm of responsibility of the U.S. high court system. I guess my good friend in High School was right — you white people be Crazy!
