Lovie Smith and Martin Luther King: Compare and Contrast

How far we’ve come, eh?

From Victor Davis Hanson:

What are we to make of the coach of the Chicago Bears, Lovie Smith, announcing on a campaign video, “I have the President‘s back and it’s left up to us, as African Americans, to show that we have his back. Also join African Americans for President Obama today.”

Versus this (in 1963) from the Rev. Martin Luther King:

…I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

Discuss amongst yourselves.

Now, imagine Mitt Romney wins the Republican nomination and John Elway said something like this: I have Mitt Romney’s back and it’s left up to us, as European Americans, to show that we have his back. Also join European Americans for Mitt Romney today.

Discuss amongst yourselves.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
