Movin On Up......

To celebrate the RNC outreach to the Black Population of Detroit and the release of their smash hit, Let's Do It To Detroit, featuring Rince Priebus and Rand Paul harmonizing on the vocoder with my Daft Punk rip off bass line, the RNC officially wants us to know that they are the party of Abraham Lincoln, who ended racism in America. Apparently according to them, racism is over, and has been for decades. Actually, if I hear another Republican tell me that they are the party that ended racism and try to ignore reality, I cannot be held responsible for my Pavlovian response: The Knee To The Groin....
But mindlessly un heedful of my auto neural response, the RNC wants to let you know and they are using Rosa Parks to let you know what they want you to know...Racism is Over in America....
Of course, this ignores everything the RNC has done:
This news could not come at a better time for the GOP. The party has struggled mightily in recent years to attract support from non-white communities; In 2012, President Obama won 80% of the non-white vote.
Republican governors have also signed dozens of laws restricting voting rights since 2010, and the conservative-led Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act earlier this year. A North Carolina GOP precinct chair was forced to resign after he criticized “lazy black people” while explaining his state’s harsh new voting laws on The Daily Show.
Republican House members led the charge to slash the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, more commonly known as food stamps, a move that hit minority communities hard this year. Cuts to reproducive health services in states likeTexas will also disproportionately affect women of color.
When faced with such utter ridiculousness, the Twitterverse responded as only it can: with a mocking hashtag #RacismEndedWhen, which became a top trender quickly. A few instant classics:
GOP Unplugged #RacismEndedWhen George Zimmerman started pointing guns at white people too. #GOP
dparkdon07 #RacismEndedWhen Allen West and Clarence Thomas became Republicans and started hating black people!
Lizz Winstead #RacismEndedWhen The Jeffersons "moved on up."
The RNC later tweeted an amendment to their tweet, crediting Parks with "her bold stand and her role in fighting to end racism."
But not before this little incident in Rochester, New York proved with out a doubt that:
 my pavlovian auto neural knee groinal response is totally automatic, unconscious and Justified!
