Oh yeah. This guy is a hoot!

Earlier today, Ebony editor Jamilah Lemieux took some well-deserved heat for treating RNC deputy press secretary Raffi Williams like dirt because she thought he was just some “white dude.” But Elon James White, media director for progressive conference Netroots Nation, doesn’t think Lemieux did anything wrong. In fact, criticizing her is totes raaaaaaacist:

Lemieux admitted to dismissing Williams because she thought he was white. Is that enough context for you?

Actually, Mr. James, they know exactly what it means. And, well, maybe it’s time for you to do some introspection:
