The White House turkey was not the only turkey needing pardoning this weekend. Elizabeth Lauten, the communications director for U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher, found her neck on the chopping block for cyber bullying President Barack Obama’s daughters after the turkey pardoning ceremony at the White House on November 26, 2014.
The respect Elizabeth Lauten wishes Sasha and Malia, the president’s daughters, had shown for the sanctity of the White House is the same ordinary respect she should have shown for Sasha and Malia and their parents as living, breathing, feeling, ordinary human beings.
Because of racial inequality in this country, Elizabeth Lauten, a communications director (and many others like her who are less than communications directors), take regular, persistent, and unwarranted liberties with every aspect of Black Life.
The overwhelming disrespect President Barack Obama, this president in particular, has suffered is a direct result of this country having little or no respect for Black Life and is evidenced when the Elizabeth Lautens, whether she has three teeth in her head or a full set, open their mouths and show how black and foul their hearts are.
