Ta-Nehisi Coates.

He’s not new, but I just recently learned of him (yes, I live thousands of miles away from the chatter. Hell, I don’t even know Taylor Swift’s gender.)

“What Republicans have yet to come to terms with is that Obama — race aside — is a formidable politician. You hear echoes of the early days of the integration of black athletes into the sports world, when white racists would contort themselves trying to understand how, exactly, someone like Jack Johnson had prevailed. It’s very hard for Rove and his allies to get their heads around the fact that they got thumped in 2008 by an Ivy League black dude from Hawaii. Some scheme must be afoot.”

Bolds mine.
