Tim Scott The New York Times Token Nigger Senator

In today’s editorial a racist at The New York Times is seething with hate a good man named Tim Scott has broken from his chains, and moved off the master’s cotton plantation by taking the position of U.S. Senator.

Tell me I am wrong. Tell me that when Professor Adolph L. Reed, Jr.used the word “token” twice he did not mean “token nigger.

The New York Times - Tim Scott Republicans Token Senator

Here is your dog whistle Chris Matthews.

Hrm, that sounds kinda familiar:

But this “first black” rhetoric tends to interpret African-American political successes — including that of President Obama — as part of a morality play that dramatizes “how far we have come.” It obscures the fact that modern black Republicans have been more tokens than signs of progress.

Because…

Mr. Scott’s background is also striking: raised by a poor single mother, he defeated, with Tea Party backing, two white men in a 2010 Republican primary: a son of Thurmond and a son of former Gov. Carroll A. Campbell Jr. But his politics, like those of the archconservative Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas, are utterly at odds with the preferences of most black Americans. Mr. Scott has been staunchly anti-tax, anti-union and anti-abortion.

In conclusion….

The trope of the black conservative has retained a man-bites-dog newsworthiness that is long past its shelf life. Clichés about fallen barriers are increasingly meaningless; symbols don’t make for coherent policies. Republicans will not gain significant black support unless they take policy positions that advance black interests. No number of Tim Scotts — or other cynical tokens — will change that.

    So I guess that means that this editorial ‘writer’ believes that most ‘blacks’ are in favor of taxes, unions and abortions……………..
