Some friends wonder why I'm so *annoyed* at the Pete campaign
Let's just say that there's not a public facing job I could have IN THIS COUNTRY with 0% support from white people
Allen goddamn Iverson wasn't polling at 0% with white fans. We're not ALLOWED to have 0% white support.
So the fact that this man gets to be taken *seriously* for President of the United States, on the theory that he'll *figure out* how to appeal to, like, ANY BLACK PEOPLE later, is just offensive to me. It is daily PROOF that this country thinks that black people are OPTIONAL.
Obviously, I'm biased. My career REQUIRES keeping enough WHITE PEOPLE more or less on board so that I may be allowed to work.
I don't even have the damn option of putting out a Tweet that I think ZERO PERCENT OF WHITE PEOPLE WILL LIKE.
But living in that world for [checks notes] 41 freaking years... watching this great white hope get inflated PURELY on the good vibes from other whites, without even MINIMAL consent from non-whites, just sticks in my craw. It puts me in a bad freaking mood.
If I want to spend ONE FREAKING DAY OF MY LIFE *truly* unconcerned with how white people think of me... I have to go "on vacation"... to Zimbabwe.

And with that: sorry white folks, that you had to experience this moment of black rage today. I'll go back to impeachment now.
