Merf. Thinking is Hard.

Jha can has random thoughtz about tapirs, kitties, comics, pretty people, social justice, things in general.

So this just popped up on my facebook feed.
Former First Lady Barbara Bush read to some kids at a hospital, and gave one of them a fist bump. My conservative friends thought this was just totes adorbs.
Meanwhile, I was having flashbacks to the 2008 presidential election when Prez Obama fist-bumped Mrs. Obama, and the news media went fucking nuts and called it a “terrorist fist jab”.
TL;DR:
Black couple running for President give celebratory fist bump; are seen as terrorists and gangstas.
Old white woman gives sick child a fist bump; is seen as adorable and “classy”.
(Yeah, classy.)
Hm.
