Did I say it was wrong? So what am I talking about? I am talking about the fact that it is totally wrong for me to plan on voting for Barack Obama simply because he looks like me. What is even wronger….I mean, more wrong….er, worst. What is worst is the fact that I expect other people to support and vote for him because he looks like me too. Seriously, how wrong is that? It is totally inappropriate to support someone who is vying to be our next Commander and Chief, just because of the color of his or her skin (or primarily for that reason). This is not like picking someone to be on your team in a sporting event, people. Nor is it like supporting a movie, because its focus surrounds black folk (Go check out Next Sunday). It isn’t even like phoning in your vote for only the black contestants, on American Idol. It is far more important that that.
I admit it. When I watch game shows and contest, I always want the black person to win (for the most part). When I watch sporting events I always expect the black person to be better. When I look at dancing contest, such as So You Think You Can Dance, I always expect the black person to excel (which they never do for some reason). And when I see some horrible crime on then news I pray to myself, please don’t let it be a black person, please don’t let it be a black person.
Yeap, I am that person who goes to a movie, focused around white folks, and look for the black folks in said movie (and you know sometimes that shit is like playing Where’s Waldo), and will actually mentally count the amount of times I see an extra that looks like me. I don’t care what any of you bastard say; how in the world is it even remotely possible to film a big budget movie, in New York City mind you, and not show a single fucking black person walking down the street? That shit is ludicrous to me. There are black people in New York City, damn it! We the ones directing the tourist as to were they can get the best price on those bootleg jeans they were looking for.
And what about Disney? Those bastards have done a cartoon featuring every race known to man BUT black folks. And I swear to the high heavens that if one more person says, What about The Lion King? I am gonna shoot them with my own gun. Do I look like a fucking lion to you? I am talking about an animated character that looks like us, damn it! Broad nose, big lips, kinky hair. Hell, they’ve had every other race including a Native American, an Asian, a Persian, a Hawaiian and even a fucking mermaid...can I get a nigger up in there somewhere? (Sorry, it just slipped out.) And don’t think it doesn’t piss me off when I watch cartoons and don’t see a single black person represented, even as background characters! How hard is it to throw a little extra brown on a cartoon and maybe puff up their hair a little, damn it!
Whew…..Okay, I got a little off track there (I promise you I don’t know where that came from). Anyway, my whole point is that I was thinking about the upcoming election and the post that I did where I referred to how the white women of New Hampshire came out in droves to show their support for Hillary’s menstruating ass. It was actually the press that alluded to this; I just capitalized on the issue. So, it dawns on me….Although I would love some change in the White House, I don’t want this Presidential race to become a contest between full lips verses a dried out vagina. That ain’t right. Hilary isn’t basing her candidacy on the fact that she was once able to lactate; nor is Barack basing his on the fact that he can pick cotton with the best of them. So why am I basing my vote on the fact that Barack is a man of color?
Sure he is refined, charismatic and articulate, but so are a lot of black people (as quiet as its kept). The reality is that just because he is black, has a black wife and little black children doesn’t mean that if he become President that he is gonna look out for the best interest of my black ass, or yours. You don’t see Oprah inviting too many poor black folks to her “favorite things” show at Christmas time, do you? I don’t give a damn that she built a school for little African girls in Africa. My ass is over here in America, with a penis, and still dumb ass hell. What has she done for me?
So, if it is so wrong to throw my support behind a person based solely on the fact that he looks like me, why am I doing it?
BECAUSE I CAN, damn it! That’s right, I’m gonna stand behind Obama’s black ass up and to the time that his ass is shut down in the polls and then I will support him again, in another four years, when his ass has even more experience and has developed even more of a following! I don’t care! I am supporting him because, damn it, as black people we need to learn to be more supported of each other when it comes to things that matter. Stop focusing on the fact that he doesn’t have much experience. Hell, none of the bastards and bitches running know what it is gonna be like to actually sit in that power position until they actual have to sit behind that big ass desk in the oval office (I’m assuming it is big, since Monica had to hid under it). You don’t get experience as a fry cook by serving the burgers. You have to put on that hair net and throw some dead meat on the grill. I say let’s help Obama throw some meat on the grill. So, hell yeah I am gonna support the brother. Not primarily because he looks like me, but I’ll be damn it if that not a key factor. And I expect you and your whole damn family to do the same! Except for the convicted felonies (they know their asses can’t vote).
