Get Off My TeeVee: Chris Matthews Edition

Tweety tries so hard to offer up nuanced and poignant analysis on race.  Excellent analysis by The Atlantic's Ta-Nehisi Coates on just what's totally all types of wrong with this comment here.
It's white people's responsibility to make themselves postracial, not the president's. Whatever my disagreements with him, the fact is that he is brilliant. That he is black and brilliant is pleasant but unsurprising to me. I've known very brilliant, very black people all my life. At some point that number of white people who still can't get their heads around our humanity will have to accept the truth: the president is black, even if you don't quite know what that means.
"I forgot he was black tonight for an hour." - Chris "Tweety" Matthews

 I guess he makes some good points at the end though.

Post racial analysis fail.

 Rudy G can just get of my teevee forever.
