Because, yunno, sexual choice is deemed the same as race by white liberals. And because only white liberals are the only ones who care about us blacks, they can use the race card whenever they want to, even when it comes to a President who's done more for teh gheys than any other in history:
New York Times Washington reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg has fired two warning shots on consecutive days across Barack Obama’s left flank, regarding his hesitation to fully endorse gay marriage.
Wednesday’s “Obama’s Position on Gay Marriage Faces New Test” painted Obama in an “awkward” situation regarding his gay supporters. Stolberg twice shoe-horned in race-based arguments to challenge Obama’s position.
When President Obama’s guests arrive at the White House on Wednesday for a Gay Pride reception -- just days after New York became the largest state in the country to make same-sex marriage legal -- they will no doubt be in a mood to celebrate.
But for their host, who does not endorse same-sex marriage, it could be somewhat awkward.
“I think they are trying to share the joy, which is genuine on their part, without changing his position,” Hilary Rosen, a prominent Democratic strategist, said of the White House. “I don’t think he can have it both ways here.”
Stolberg flipped the race card:
Others took issue with Mr. Obama’s word choice at the Manhattan fund-raiser, where he noted that “traditionally marriage has been decided by the states.” His critics say that by invoking states’ rights, the president -- a former constitutional law professor and son of a black father and a white mother -- brought up arguments once used to justify laws that would have prevented his own parents from marrying.
