Ann Coulter and the good blacks:
Hannity wondered why liberals were, in his words, so "threatened" by Cain. Coulter was blunt in her response.

"Our blacks are so much better than their blacks," she said, speaking of Democrats. "To become a black Republican, you don't just roll into it. You're not going with the flow...and that's why we have very impressive blacks in the Republican party."

Democratic African Americans are just lazy I guess.

I used to know someone who divided African Americans in two groups: "the good blacks" and "The Ubangis." The "good blacks" were those who had money (unless they were athletes or rap stars) and treated her very politely. The "Ubangis" were all the others, whose lack of money was attributed to their "black" behavior, which she did not care for at all. She insisted she wasn't racist because the fact that she liked a few well-off black folks who treated her with what she considered the proper respect. (If for some reason they didn't, they were, of course, relegated to "Ubangi" status.)
