Denver radio host Randy Corporon gets a gold nugget for having a weekly liberal guest on his show, messing with the familiar reverberations in conservative echo chamber of talk radio.
On Thursday's show, on Denver's KLZ 560-AM, the liberal, Dane Torbenson, told "righty" host Corporon that racism is still a problem in America. The echo chamber quivered with rarely heard sound waves, stimulating Adams County Republican Chair, Anil Mathai to phone in and say elite whites are using African-Americans as pawns in a war against whites. The racial discussion in America is actually reverse racism, against whites, he said.
"This is a reverse racial discussion being driven by elite whites, especially by those who have never lived in the city, those who have no clue about what black people have to go through," Mathai told KLZ Wake Up Show listeners. "And the black people [are] also being tricked into this racial discussion, because bitterness is a destructive thing. It's a good thing to have this discussion, but the reality is, this is racially motivated from the reverse side."
Who are the whites that are tricking "the black people?" The whites in the Ferguson police department? Which is rotten with systemic racism, according to federal investigators? I'd like to see a list of whites who are tricking "the black people" into thinking there's racism out there. Will I be on the list for linking to a federal government report documenting racism?
If blacks were allowed on the list of people tricking the black people, it looks like President Obama would be on it, if you listen to Mathai.
The Adams County Republican leader said we have "a black president and a black attorney general and such, and we're more diversified than ever before in American history, who's pushing a racial agenda, a reverse racial agenda."
"That's not being discussed," he said.
If he doesn't think that's being discussed, then he needs to listen to more talk radio, which is full of it. It's the other side, the argument that racism isn't a problem in America, that's usually missing from talkm radio land.
