Uppity…uppity….uppity!

Posted by nebraskaobserver on September 7, 2008

Uppity. Oh, the freedom to finally say it! He uppity. She uppity. They uppity.

It seems that Georgia Republican Rep. Lynn Westmoreland was quoted as saying “just from what little I’ve seen of her (Michelle Obama) and Mr. Obama, Sen. Obama, they’re a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they’re uppity,”

Now the political correct police (PCP) are saying that by their edict, no one can use the word “uppity” when referring to a black person. It seems that in the black culture, “uppity” is a derogatory term for blacks seeking equal treatment.

Now, we’ll have to supply all politicians with an “Ebonics” dictionary and a list of politically incorrect words to describe Obama or better yet have an “Ebonics” translator assigned to each conservative member of Congress.

This is just another double-standard of the liberal press and their ilk. Obama’s PCP jumped all over Sen. Biden after Jan. 31, 2008 when he said “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” (Watch Biden’s comments,   It seems that articulate, bright, clean and nice-looking is derogatory in the black culture. Anyway, Biden apologized and now these two most liberal Democrats are having a love-fest and almost “French-kissing” on stage.

The Associated Press describes Rep. Westmoreland as “a white man who was born in 1950 and raised in the segregated South” as if that’s a crime. Another crime he has committed is that “he has drawn criticism from civil rights advocates on a number of issues, including last year when he led opposition to renewing the 1965 Voting Rights Act.”

What is the greater crime here for the AP? Being a white man or having civil rights critics? As far as we are concerned, having civil right critics should be a “badge of honor”.

Uppity still describes the Obama’s’ well and Rep. Westmoreland needs not to apologize for anything. AP story
