The Yeagley Effect,
the race-baiting dilemma
of David Yeagley

by Brent Michael Davids, 12/14/06

“The Democrat senator from Illinois, Mr. Barak Hussein Obama faces some interesting identity challenges... Mr. Obama is half white... African-American...means American Negro--descendent of slave... They have no connect but for their genes. Most American Negroes know little or nothing about Africa, and couldn't care less, usually... Mr. Obama is truly a multicultural person... Mr. Obama seems to represent everything but America... Obama essentially represents merely another obfuscation of American culture and ethnicity. He is basically a foreigner. I should say, there is something in him fundamentally foreign. A lot of American blacks, the conservatives and even the liberals, are averse to ‘Africans’ ...This is a very real situtation [sic]. I know from personal experience... Is it a good thing to despise ethnicity, to obscure it, to bury in it the mix? Are all ethnicities destined to be obliterated by intermarriage and multiculturalism? Is this the Obama Effect, in the end? Honoring confusion? Does the mix result in a superior entity?” (David Yeagley, multicultural pianist)
Did David Yeagley’s multicultural roots result in a superior entity? Can Yeagley pontificate about the black experience just as foolishly as he does the Comanche one? Yeagley is half-white, basically a foreigner — is this the Yeagley effect? Could anyone be less delusional and racist?

Is leaving a bunch of unanswered questions at the end of an article, good writing? Does it make up for the lack of substantive facts about real issues that do not harangue on about the superiority of racial purity? Does it imply there is a pseudo rationale behind the words being written, but without actually writing them?

Maybe we should call your race-baiting the “Yeagley Effect” for its logical potential to create unnecessary race-based posturing and downright racism. The Yeagley Effect, denoting the use of grandiose racist diatribes for race purity, with a dash of two-faced forgetfulness of one’s own multicultural genes. Yes, I like it: the Yeagley Effect.
