Songwriter Randy Newman making waves with new song "I'm Dreaming" ... of a white president. [View all]


I need to start this out with the claim from the site where I found the song:
I thought putting the word "sarcasm" in the headline would be a tip-off, but those of you calling Newman a "racist" are missing the point. He is making fun of racists, as a number of other comments have pointed out. You can disagree with his point of view, but he is not advocating racism. Exactly the opposite.

Remember it is supposed to be sarcasm.
