PREFACE: WHEN SOMEONE GOES DOOR TO DOOR THESE DAYS TRYING TO SELL YOU A SERVICE OR GOOD, THEY USE A SMART PHONE TO INPUT YOUR ADDRESS SO THAT THEY CAN ADDRESS YOU BY NAME. I HAVE SEEN IT HAPPEN IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE MANY TIMES BEFORE THEY KNOCK ON MY DOOR.
I was doing some car maintenance today when I noticed a high end Mercedes pull to the curb just down the street. A Caucasian woman got out and walked the block, looking at houses. There are 14 on my block and 3 with signs–2 for Romney and 1 for Obama. When she returned to the car, a Caucasian man and a Negro man exited the car and went to my neighbors’ house. They were Obama walkers. My neighbor is the only X-spanic on our block. He is here from Columbia and not a citizen. The talked his ear off for 15 minutes. I can only wonder what the conversation was about. The walkers left, not going to my Negro neighbors house or the 2 Asian neighbors, and soon after, I had to make a trip to the store. Upon my return I saw 2 more groups of walkers in different heighborhoods, paired up Negro and Caucasian where one was usually female. One set was walking to an X-spanic’s house while pointing directly at another one. Tthe second pair was walking down the street away from another X-panic. When I had arrived back home, another individual (Obama walker) was back at my neighbors’ house, handing him some form and hand bill (Obama).
Some of what I would say is assumption so I will leave it for you to determine instead. The walkers were definitely singling out X-panics. One that I know can’t legally vote. They paired so that a minority and female could “spread the word” for Obama. They seemed to be covering all bases (I didn’t check for walkers in the graveyard and I’m not talking about zombies here) and it seems desperate for a last minute push (since I haven’t seen walkers in the community for about 3 months and, yes, I do pay close attention around my home).
My question to you is this: if liberals and Dems have such a burr about profiling minorities, why is singling out minorities–especially X-spanics–for ANY reason, any different from the profiling they tend to detest? What I saw could be PC’d into any word you want but profiling is exactly what was happening. Why is this form okay? Just want to hear your views.
