Objectifying / The Prop Routine
If Mark Meadows was not intentionally objectifying and using Ms. Lynn Patton as a Black prop. Then why did he not just use a Caucasian individual to make this same arguments?
There are plenty of Caucasian employees that love the Trump family. That would have loved to explain to Congress why they think the racist President Donald Trump was being falsely accused of being a racist.
Mark Meadows could have brought in a second individual, a Caucasian to stand alongside Ms. Lynn Patton. But he chooses not too because all he was worried about showing was the BLACK SKIN of Ms. Lynn Patton.
That is what is called objectifying an individual and using them as a prop based on their skin complexion and it is racist!
The OOPS, I almost did it Routine
Again we see Mark Meadows pause mid-sentence when he stated: There’s nothing more personal to me than my relationship… ( pause )
For a second time Mark Meadows has again paused and suddenly changed the narrative of his defense. ” And you Mr. Chairman you are… ( pause ) “
So really who is Mr. Chairman to Mark Meadows?
Was Mark Meadows going to say;
- Mr. Chairman you are… wrong in not stopping this racist attack upon me!
- Mr. Chairman you are… an asshole!
- Mr. Chairman you are… black and you my best or good friend.
Whatever the reason, Mark Meadows again paused mid-sentence, collected his thoughts and obviously switched from the statement he was going to make because he obviously figured this was an OOPS, I almost did it AGAIN.
Based on his next line You and I have a personal relationship that is not based on color.
It is probably safe to speculate that he was going to say Mr. Chairman you are… Black and we have a personal relationship that is not based on color.
Now that would have been ironic would it not have?
The irony that Mark Meadows was going out his way to use The Kumbaya / Color Blind Routine claiming he has a personal relationship Mr. Elijah Cummings, a Black man that is not based on color would have been fascinating.
The Hero / Good Samaritan Routine
The Kumbaya / Color Blind Routine
The I Have A Black Family / Friend Routine
But what we do know is that Mark Meadows has personal relationship Mr. Chairman that is not based on color.
What a Hero / Good Samaritan Mark Meadows is for having a personal and not just a professional relationship with a Black man that is not based on their complexion.
It is nice to see that Mark Meadows is Color Blind in regards to a relationship with a Black man that is not based on their complexion.
It is also nice to see that Mark Meadows is Black Friends that is not based on their complexion.
Does this mean that Mark Meadows has relationships that are personal and professional with individuals strictly because of their non-white complexion?
This sounds like Mark Meadows uses non-whites as tokens, tools and props for his own benefits. Just like proud Caucasian slave owners did back in the day with their House Negros.
Unfortunately for the world, Mark Meadows decided that his original statement was probably not going to go over well. So he changed up his mind mid-sentence.
And you Mr. Chairman you are…
But if Mark Meadows would have finished his original thought it probably would have just been another classic use of the racist – I Have Black Family/Friends and Kumbaya / Color Blind Routine used in a racist defense.
So Mark Meadows is caught doing something racist and he thinks that by having a personal relationship with a black person again somehow proves he is not racist?
Mark Meadows plays the Kumbaya / Color Blind Routine claiming that their relationship is not based on color. That he is color blind to Mr. Elijah Cummings skin complexion despite subtle referring to it in his own defense.
Mark Meadows is again objectifying a black individual and this time it is not Ms. Lynn Patton or his own nieces or nephews. It is again the Chairman, Mr. Ellja Cummings.
Mark Meadows could have just said that they have a personal relationship and leave it at that. Instead he decided he need to throw in the it’s not based on color which just made the whole statement based on color.
By Mark Meadows referring to a personal relationship with Mr. Elijah Cummings who is a non- white as a way to justify why he is not a racist.
Mark Meadows clearly objectified and used the Chairman Mr. Elijah Cummings as a prop.
The Victim Routine
And here we go again. Mark Meadows is going to play The Victim Routine
How dare anyone, especially U.S. Representative for Michigan, Ms. Rashida Tlaib who is of Palestinian descent. Call out Mark Meadows for his racist and anti-black behavior.
And yet again…. Mark Meadows is not and NEVER WAS A VICTIM!
