The Magic Negro

Friday, May 04, 2007


Rush Limbaugh keeps calling Presidential Candidate, Barack Obama, “The Magic Negro”. It is a case of mistaken identity. Maybe Rush thinks all Negroes look alike, “Black Like Me”, wrote Mr. Griffin .

My name is Eddie Griffin and I am “The Magic Negro”, not Obama. I am the Magic Negro because I am blessed to be alive and a free man, after multiple near-death encounters as a former black militant leader. The magic was not my own, but God from above.

Let it be known that all future references to the Magic Negro, refers to Eddie Griffin, a man of God.

  1. FYI- Rush Limbaugh didn't coin the term "Magic Negro", Los Angeles Time's writer, (who is black by the way) David Ehrenstein coined it.

    Erhenstein said the reason whites were voting for Obama was not because of his merits but because they had "white guilt". (uh, ok.)

    No one reported on this racist and clearly absurd article until Limbauigh made fun of it in a parody. Suddenly, Limbaugh's labeled the racist and the L.A. Times article is ignored.
