>What Exactly Did He Mean By This Anyway?

Fresh from rehab, Rep. Patrick Kennedy said yesterday he wants to be treated like an African-American from Washington if and when he gets charged for crashing his car on Capitol Hill.

Denying that he was drunk and or that he asked the Capitol Police for preferential treatment, Kennedy, a Rhode Island congressman, said he’s prepared “in terms of bookings, in terms of mug shots, fingerprints, whatever they might have me do.”

“It’s what anyone else would have done to them if they were an African-American in Anacostia,” Kennedy said in a shaky voice, referring to the mostly minority neighborhood in southeastern Washington.

Hmmm. So is “treat me like I’m black” his way of saying “Shit all over me. Give me no special treatment. Strip me of my dignity and show me no respect“? Because he could have just said, “Shit all over me. Give me no special treatment. Strip me of my dignity and show me no respect.

Looks like he let us know what he thinks it means to be black.

Well, I guess it’s like Oprah and Dr. Maya Angelou always say…

When someone shows you who they are, believe them.
