I saw this video today:
Samir Shabazz, one of the leaders of the Black Panthers who recently had charges dropped for voter intimidation, says that he hates “every last iota of a cracker”. Well, that’s interesting…
Dictionary.com defines “iota” as “a very small quantity; jot; whit”. So this would mean that Samir Shabazz either is very health conscious (or perhaps he’s gluten-intolerant) and doesn’t like the baked-flour snack that is commonly referred to as a cracker, or he hates white people (or more specifically, someone with one iota of European ancestry, since he hates “every last iota of a cracker”.
Isn’t President Barack Obama 50% white? That’s a lot more than an iota.
In fact, he probably hates most black people in America. Barack Obama senior was an African from Africa, so I guess he would pass Shabazz’s “iota test”. Supposedly, my husband has some French ancestry (which makes sense because his grandfather was born in Louisiana in the 1800s), so I guess that would mean that he was an “iota of a cracker” even though most people would consider him black.
I suppose Shabazz feels exactly the opposite of some of the racists in the 1800s that would hate people that looked white if they had an iota of African blood. The truth is, most black people in America have some European ancestry, so I guess Shabazz doesn’t like most black people in America, and probably quite a lot of people in the Black Panther party; most of them surely must have an iota of European ancestry.
After Shabazz spoke about how he hated every last “iota of a cracker”, he mentioned that they were going to have to “kill some crackers”. Does that mean that he wants to assassinate our 50%-European president? He hates all white people, or anybody that’s an iota white, so why wouldn’t he?
