Hahaha, I just suddenly remembered that, late on election night 2008, over an image of the whole Obama family, Brian Williams said, "Well, it looks like they'll be moving into government housing now." What calls this to mind at quarter to nine on a beautiful summer Saturday morning? I have no idea.

This reminds me of the old newspaper (wish I could remember the name) written by black people wherein they just reversed all the racial titles and description.

For example, they'd always mention "a White man" or "the White people" with a capital W, or "the whites say", etc.

Be hilarious to do the same today, esp w/r/t tea partiers saying things like "well looks like Tea Party candidate X will be moving into government housing" and the like :P

I tend to capitalize Black and not white, mostly going off of Assata Shakur's preference honestly, which I guess in isolation isn't the best method for deciding how to write (though you could do much, much worse).

I'm looking forward to the day when Sarah Palin moves into government housing.
