(Newser) – Rush Limbaugh yesterday capped off a free-wheeling show on the scourge of racism in America by suggesting that Obama’s white half is racist because he hasn’t thrown a bone to his Kenyan relatives, Media Matters reports. “I'm just going on Newsweek, that we're all born racists, and Obama had a typical white grandmother, in his own words,” Limbaugh said. “Maybe the half-white side's winning out here. A dual battle going on inside the cranium there.”

Limbaugh also issued a treatise on “Obama’s America,” recounting the story of a white student attacked by black students on a school bus. “We know that white students are destroying civility on buses,” Limbaugh said—sarcastically, we guess. “Kid shouldn't have been on the bus anyway. We need segregated buses—it was invading space and stuff. This is Obama's America.” Limbaugh squeezed in some, ahem, sympathy for Kanye West (he was standing up for his "sister," Beyonce) and Serena Williams (who got screwed by a racist line judge).
