Well, Obama took it! Was there ever any doubt/ Well, of course there was. i won't get into all of the black/white issues. Nor will I delve into the politics of it all. All I will say is congrats to the man; he is now officially the first. The first black man to officially become a true forerunner for the office of Presidency. Say what you want, but that is no small accomplishment for a black man in this world shrouded in racial overtones.
Thank you, Obama, for being the first. And thank you world for helping him make that jump. You see, even though I make the snide comment about living in a world shrouded in racism, I know that the black vote alone did not put Senator Obama over the top. hell no. It was Oprah! (joke) Seriously, I applaud American for opening their hearts and minds to the idea of a black candidate.
Now the fun truly begins. Now people's real feelings about having a black man up for the Commander and Chief will truly begin to shine and the haters will emerge. And don't think for a second that the haters of which I speak will be all white, because we know that shit ain't true. They will come in all shades, sexes and IQ levels, and yest there will be black haters. Black on Black hate, you gotta love that.
Do I think Obama is the right man for the job? Hell, how the fuck am I suppose to know the answer to that question? You never know who is the right person for the job until they take their place behind the desk and start making things happen; or fucking things up, as the case maybe. Hell, people thought George W. Was the right man for the job at one point. So much so that they voted his ass in twice! And we all have bore witness to the bang up job he did.
Of course, Americans are a fickle bunch, so you never know what will piss them off and cause them to turn on you. I should know...I'm an American. An American who just so happens to be black. But black aside, i truly do want the best person for the job up in there. I don't give a damn about experience. Hell, some of the most experience people can be the biggest fuck ups. I want someone who will actually go in there in make a difference to better this fucking world we live in. Someone who is not in it for the Republicans or the Democrats. I hate that division. Fuck that! Can you get our troops back home safely? Can you get the price of gas to stop going up every other fucking day? Can you get the members of Congress and the Senate to stop upping their own pay, while the common man struggles to make it day to day? I honestly don't care about their race, age or gender.
However, as a black man I would be remiss if I did not stand up and applaud, do a somersault out in the streets, pull out my tinkle and give it a little smile; something to show that I am proud that someone who looks like me made it through. Made it Over. Landed on Plymouth rock! However the fuck you want to say it the man has done what no other man of his race has done before. And the first person to say, "Well, he's only half black" can kiss my half ashy ass! That ain' t the point, damn it!
Er, I guess I lied about not getting into the whole black and white thing, huh. Oh well, this is my blog and I say what I want. Now the comment page is all yours. There you can say what you want.
-One Man's Opinion. Peace.
Say a prayer for Obama and his lot (those of you who do pray). Even though he took on this journey knowing full well all of the possible consequences that lay ahead for him and his family. I just pray for their safety throughout it all. I wish them well (Guess whose blog I stole that from).
