For the two years running up to the November ’08 elections, Barack Obama played a two-faced game with the citizens of this country.
On one hand, he inferred that he was above the supposed racial divide that has separated certain sections of our society for many many years. He said we were “one people”,…Americans.
And yet, at nearly every point in the race, when and where he knew it would matter most to his poll numbers, he would pull out the “race card”. On one such occasion, he said that his political opposition would try to “scare” the voting populace, making them fear the fact that he “doesn’t look like the other Presidents on the dollar bills”.
During all of this, certain sections of black America seemed to “finally be proud of their country”, siding with the woman who actually spoke those words – Michelle Obama.
They seem to forget that a white man (Abraham Lincoln) freed the slaves.
They seem to forget that many non-black Americans have fought, died, and cried over the racial inequalities that were present (and sometimes still are present) in our country.
They seem to forget that not every non-black American is against them.
They seem to forget they’re not the only ones who’ve suffered injustices.
They continue to live their lives as if they are still struggling.
The “struggle” is comforting to them, because it’s the only way they know how to live. They’ve been “groomed” to believe that their “struggle” continues, and that they should EXPECT (yes, I said EXPECT) to see injustices done to them, to this day.
The trouble with that logic is this: If you expect to see something, and believe with all your heart that it will come to pass – - when it doesn’t, you nearly regret it. You actually LOOK FOR it, or manufacture it, so you are more comfortable.
Just the other day, Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, said this of our country and society:
“Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards,”
Who the hell is he trying to kid? Better yet,…Who the hell is he trying to convince? Who is he trying to keep down in the muck and mire of self-segregation and self-doubt?
You’ll note that in the linked article, Townhall’s John Hawkins writes:
Here’s the simple reality. There is no real dialogue on race in this country — and there will probably be no real dialogue on race in this country for the foreseeable future.
Why? Because white people aren’t free to speak honestly about race.
Well, why is that?
First off, there’s a grievance industry in this country full of parasites like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the NAACP who make a living by screaming “racism” over every slight, real and imagined, that anyone can come up with.
Also, the Left has made convincing black Americans that white people hate them a bedrock part of their political strategy. That keeps a lot of blacks falsely believing that white people hate them, falsely believing that Republicans hate them, and thereby keeps them thinking that they have no other choice than to rely on the Democratic Party. If most black Americans understood the truth, the Democrats would lose their death grip on black voters and they would tank as a party.
Additionally, black Americans are constantly told they’re victims and that if they’re not successful, it’s because of racism.
Also in the linked article, you can see the now infamous cartoon, drawn by NY Post cartoonist Sean Delonas, in which a monkey is shot dead by police (taken from the true-life incident just the other day of the chimp who attacked a woman and was then shot dead). The caption shows one of the policeman saying: “They’ll have to find someone else to write that next stimulus bill”.
I looked at that for the first time – and laughed. Not because I saw an issue of race, but because the cartoon suggests that only monkeys can write such a screwed up piece of legislation as the one that just passed. But, when one of black America’s race-hustlers, (Al Sharpton) saw the cartoon, he IMMEDIATELY saw an issue of race.
This kind of thing happens all the time….BLACK AMERICANS seeing a racial issue, where there isn’t one. (What did I say about EXPECTING to see something, and when it’s not there, manufacturing it, or assuming it must be there anyway?)
Talk about thin-friggin-skinned! If black Americans really believe they can be equated with monkeys (much like Bush was called “chimp” for the past 8 years)…Their level of self-confidence needs a gigantic boost. And that kind of thing cannot come from electing a political “messiah”.
Take the time to read the whole piece I linked to at Townhall (above), and make sure you peruse the embedded links, plus the links provided at the bottom of the article.
Other articles on this issue can be found at these links. Read them all, if you have the time…They are worth it:

If Obama wanted a “frank discussion on racial issues” – - he’s going to get one – - especially if this BS keeps up.
