Did Rush Limbaugh Show Some White Consciousness Yesterday?

I listened to Limbaugh's opening hour on Monday. But my subject line above didn't occur to me until Monday evening when I was reading Bruce Thornton's 2006 book Decline and Fall, wherein he substantively mentions Raspail and Camp of the Saints in talking about Europe's completely unwarranted self-loathing.

Then I remembered this brief bit from Rush:

CALLER: Listening for many years, since back into the days of TV. I was calling in regard to the slavery issue that you were talking about earlier. My great-great grandmother, back in 1843 when she was about 18, was captured by the Comanche Indians. It was her and another girl at that time. The other girl didn't survive, but obviously my great-great grandmother did. Her name was Juana, and she was later rescued and traded for by two brothers who had moved to Texas. They set up a trading post and traded for her.

RUSH: So the point is that the Indians had slaves and they went to war over them?

CALLER: That is correct.

RUSH: Nobody would have believed that if you tell 'em. Nobody would believe that because of the history revisionism that has taken place about how Native Americans were exploited by the evil white Europeans who came here and took everything they had and then did unspeakable things. I think of all the races, Caucasians have the least to feel guilty about.

CALLER: I would agree.

RUSH: In the context of truth, in the context of what's real in the world, we are the only race that has gone to war eliminate slavery to boot. So now some of these slaveholding Indians are running casinos. Where's the justice? That is the justice. I know. You know, if you stop and think of everything that's out of whack here, it challenges your sanity. I mean, for example, here's Obama....

A few months ago, Rush Limbaugh said something about blacks dominating in civil service jobs, and he said something along the lines of "well, there is a reason for this, but, no, I'd better not go any further." I don't remember the exact words, but it was pretty clear that he was implying that a large proportion of the black population could only prosper with government sinecures.
