Not everyone who dislikes Obama is racist. I didnt vote for the man and other than raising an eyebrow at the historical significance, Obama being in
office has not added nor subtracted from my life. I lean more toward dislike because I think he's a shill....but then again they all are. politics is
a joke. I do wonder though...how can we squabble about what he has done or hasnt done and yet embrace the high probability that the real moves in this
country are made by people behind the scenes. Sort of negates the Obama argument a bit. He hasnt done anything because he wasnt supposed to. His job
was to sell it. People got tired of seeing the same stodgy whitebreds so they injected a new face. Someone with swagger who could sell the dream to
the young because they werent buying it from someone who looked like their principal. Obama is ..New Coke. And like new coke...he's tanking.
That being said, to say that a lot of hateful sh** isnt being driven by some already underlying issues this country has with race...issues that have
not been resolved, only institutionalized....well thats just naive , lol. People cant help themselves because its so deeply ingrained in the
collective psyche of this nation. Even minorities have internalized outside views of inferiority and allow themselves to be pimped by corporate
america and the government alike. In my experience the biggest racists are usually the ones who have convinced themselves that it has nothing to do
with race. Of course it does, and if people would stop acting so afraid and hyper sensitive when it comes to talking about it then maybe we might
learn a few things. Like how white privileged was used as a tool by the elites to enslave their counterparts without actually forcing them into the
cotton fields. We are all in this together, like it or not and if the S really does HTF, you are going to learn that political affiliations, ethnic
backgrounds, religions .....won't mean a damn thing.
