blue bits. red rocks.

Apparently, no one among the RNC attendees or the pundits pontificating thereupon ever read Ralph Ellison’s 1952 novel, Invisible Man. When Clint Eastwood decided to make President Barack Obama invisible, he re-instituted the social invisibility Ellison described and all African-American’s lived then as many live now. Mr. Eastwood managed to deny President Obama’s right to exist and be seen with a brilliant piece of staging. While the pundits laugh at him as the embarrassing old uncle, I tremble with the evil brilliance of his act. I doubt Eastwood even read the book. He may not fully realize the racism of his actions. Nonetheless, he denied our first African-American President of his face then put foul language into his imagined mouth in a manner that would make the most despicable member of the Ku Klux Klan dance with glee. Why #Eastwooding Was Racist
