This is a pretty (unintentionally) funny clip of Glenn Beck bemoaning the fact that, though Oprah's accomplished, she's still aware of race as an issue to be dealt with. As though one person's accomplishments are shared by the group, or mean the others have the same chance, when that just isn't so.
And for a white guy - a member of a cult that just admitted it was racist to blacks, for over a century, and well into the 20th - to think he can dictate what opportunities are out there, for blacks, puts him right square in the "jerk" column where so many blacks already think he belongs.
I used to listen to Beck on the radio, before he went God crazy and was doing more comedy, but I never really warmed to him. His lessons on history could be revealing, but it was never black history. Not what I heard anyway. That was an obvious "tell".
It's always an obvious "tell". Glenn Beck doesn't see race, you see. Glenn Beck ignores the most obvious part of black's political identity, so he can try and sell us his own, and it won't work. We're not, and don't want to be, part of Glenn Beck's goofy LDS "America". We're making another one, and him, his cult - and his "disgust" - be damned.
Especially because, I don't know about you, but it sounds to me like somebody's ready to start hitting the bottle again,…
