Everyone is so up in arms about Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis and her refusal to perform a very important function of her job as a County Clerk. Davis has refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, citing her religious beliefs. Gay couples, she says, are unbiblical, and supporting them (read: following the law by giving them the marriage certificate they are legally entitled to) would cause her to violate her religion. And because we have freedom of religion in this country, she posits, she should not be legally compelled to violate her beliefs…even if that means that she gets to violate the legal rights of tax-paying citizens of the county she is legally obligated to serve.
People are calling her a bigot. They’re saying she’s prejudiced. They’re saying that we really need to honor the separation of church and state. They’re happy that she’s in jail.
But I think people are looking at this all wrong.
Let’s take a gander at some facts:
- Kim Davis cannot keep a man. She’s been married 4 times.
- She’s not married to her baby daddy.
- She doesn’t want to work.
- She has a record.
- She’s getting a paycheck from the government despite not wanting to work.
Based on these behaviors, Kim Davis is basically a black person. Certainly an RBP. And she’s managed to become a right-wing hero. This could change everything.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
Kim Davis isn’t a white anti-gay government official. She’s just some black dude performance artist in whiteface.
Well played, anonymous blacktivist. Well played indeed.
If it were within the rules to be seen in the same room together, I’d come by and say congratulations.
If the right starts applauding RBP behavior, what’s next in this new world order? Cornrows at the office? Driveby Fridays? What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
