Liberals can always find something to be offended by.
On Wednesday black country singer and former front man for “Hootie and The Blowfish”, Darius Rucker, performed a great rendition of the holiday classic “White Christmas” at the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting ceremony.
The ceremony itself was under heavy police protection amid threats to “shut it down” by protesters angry about the grand jury decision to not indict a white officer in the death of Eric Garner, a black man. The hashtag #NoJusticeNoTree trended all night until the efforts of the rabble-rousers were thwarted by the NYPD.
Surrounded by so much racial tension Twitter lit up over the performance.
more than awkward to see Darius Rucker singing “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” in NYC tonight. #ICantBreathe

No offense to Darius Rucker, but seeing him perform White Christmas with protesters blocks away makes me sad.

Darius Rucker singing White Christmas in Rockefeller Center. One block over, streets shut down for Eric Garner. Utterly surreal.

Others were not so cynical.
Sooooo…black people can’t sing about wanting snow at Christmas because Snow is white?? Snow is so racists. http://t.co/ad5fVXpROq
