Not A Pink Girl

Why your parents are scared of Barack Obama. | October 30, 2008

Children of rabid right-wing parents, please watch this. Your parents are just scared. They pretend they’re voting for McCain-Palin because they’re against allowing a woman to choose what happens to her own body.

Really, they’re just scared of people who don’t look like them, or have as much money as they do. They’re scared that, if anyone but a white person becomes president, all their money will somehow be taken from them & their homes will somehow not be safe from intruders.

Your scared parents’ use of abortion as a reason to vote for or against someone is just a coverup for the real reasons they don’t want an African-American Democrat as president. It makes your parents look so morally upright when they tell you they’re against “killing babies.” It makes them feel so much better about themselves. They paint McCain-Palin’s opponents as “baby murderers” because they don’t want to admit to their children, friends, colleagues, extended family, or themselves that the real reason they don’t want Barack Obama as president is because they’re prejudiced.

The root definition of the word “prejudice” is to “judge in advance.” Extremists always act out of fear. They judge people before they know them or what they really stand for. They judge them on what they can see – the color of their skin that’s different from their own – or from what their parents taught them about people whose skin is dark or who don’t speak the same language we do or go to the same church we do. Prejudice is the basis of hate.

You can change the world. You can love your parents because they’re doing their best with what they’ve been taught; they just are having trouble rising above their F.E.A.R. (False Evidence Appearing Real). You can love your parents & you can also know in your heart that they’re wrong.

We’re counting on you to do the right thing!
