No Whitey Zones

Written by , Posted in Identity Politics

I not too long ago highlighted what I’m now going to call a No Whitey Zone, which are places where the idea of a white person holding an elected position is especially distasteful to local race-mongers.

Another No Whitey Zone has been discovered in Baltimore, Maryland:

“Our concern is who would the governor appoint?” Cheatham said. “Here you have a predominantly African-American city. What if the governor appointed somebody white? … Would he appoint someone Irish to be the mayor?”

A bloody leprechaun in government? The horror! This is particularly amusing considering that the previous mayor, and now current governor, is not only white, but with a name like Martin O’Malley is probably at least 200% Irish.
