"What's up with two videos in a row?" you might be wondering, but bear with me and watch it, and you'll understand what I find so fascinating about the video.
Now, we all know the stereotypical pictures that come to mind when one thinks of blacks in America, and these stereotypes are so well known and so widely shared that some idiots are even able to make their living from them as far afield as Japan. This interviewer no doubt had the same images at the back of his mind when he approached the young Obama supporter, expecting to quickly reveal a shallow young ignoramus caught up in a mere intoxication with empty rhetoric; I'm sure it would have been even better for his purposes if the young man could have been goaded into transforming into the equally ignorant, aggressively militant, hypersensitive "Angry Black Man"™ who is the staple of "reality tv" [sic] and the stuff of American nightmares. Luckily neither scenario played out, and at least some people will now get to see for themselves that yes, reasonable, intelligent and very well-informed black people do exist outside of "liberal, politically correct" [sic] textbooks.
