Racialism and Obama.


Racialism and Obama

Suddenly, the cat is out of the bag and people are looking at those who oppose Obama and asking if the dislike of the President is formed out of racial animosity.

To an observer and historian of American history, the question should really be asked: What issues in our nation are not tinged by racial prejudice?

Very few.

Welfare reform, tax breaks for the wealthy, home schooling, public transportation, spending for domestic social needs, legislative redistricting, education, jobs, sprawl, the growth of the Sun Belt, immigration reform, the depopulation and decay in the Rust Belt, Christian values, states rights, affirmative action, prisons, law enforcement, guns. Almost everything has some underlying racial preference or prejudice influencing people’s beliefs and behaviors.

Obama is half white, but in this nation, that means he is all black. He married a black woman, and they joined a majority black church and lived and worked among working class black Chicagoans. Obama never lived post-racially but joined the very race based world of South Side Chicagoland.

Despite his immersion in South Side politics, Obama has tried and nearly succeeded in making white people forget that the history of America is as much about the exclusion of darker skin as it about the inclusion of everyone else. For the last two years, the liberal “elite”, if there is such a class, has pronounced, from its well-to-do white habitat, that we are a “post-racial” nation. We are not, and never will be that country.

Who among us, if given a choice, would rather have a black complexion? Who would choose to live in a mostly black neighborhood if they could live anywhere? We are lying if we say that we want to make our life harder. Anyone with common sense would like things to be easier: economically, socially, and racially.

If some sleeping liberals now detect that hostility to Obama stems from some hidden bigotry, they might realize that hatred of the man and his policies all share a common thread, however insignificant: race and color will always inform our policies.

Race and class are sitting in the debate room on issues as small as the renaming of a part of Van Nuys as Sherman Oaks; and as large, invisible spectators in the national tragedy of why we have spent 2 trillion dollars in Iraq rather than rebuilding Detroit, Newark, and Camden, NJ.

  1. I agree with you that there are still a lot of people in this world that are prejudiced towards black people. I personally do not hold any prejudice towards blacks, however, the older I get, I am starting to notice something negative about black people.

    I am a white guy and was engaged to marry a woman that was 1/2 black and 1/2 white. She always complained about the black part of her heritage; so much so that it came between us. It was always a “race” issue with her even though I never ever mentioned race a single time. I think that most black people have held onto the race card for so many years that it has become commonplace to play the victim and use it as a crutch so as not to interact with whites. Personally, I never understood the difference between a black person and a white person. We are all the same and I think that the sooner that the black people begin to understand that not all white people hate them, the sooner they can begin to relax.

    I do believe that Obama is a raciest and does not like white people. I personally despise him but not because of the color of his skin but because of his socialist agenda. His socialist / fascist agenda is clearly the wrong move for Americans. He is selling out your freedom and mine and that goes against every fiber of my being. You can disagree with me all you want but in a few months when nobody is allowed to speak because your 1st Amendment right to free speech has been removed, you will remember this post. When Obama enacts marshal law in this country, you shall see. All I can say is God help this country.

    1. Your last paragraph is full of unproven accusations.

      Why does he not like “white people”? His mother and his grandparents, who he loves dearly, were white.

      What is a “socialist agenda”? How is he “selling out freedom”? Who is not allowed to speak under his administration? Where is the evidence for the impending marshal law?

      Under Mr. Bush, our government was allowed to spy on Americans, imprison “terrorists” without evidence, kidnap and extradite “terrorists” in other countries, and invade and occupy Iraq. Why were you not terrified of these ACTUAL acts of Presidential power grabbing and anti-constitutional governance?

      What you imagine Mr. Obama may do is nothing compared to what Mr. Bush has already done.

      1. This is a direct quote from obama’s book entitled “Audacity of Hope”;

        “There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs,” he wrote. “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.”

        This is only one of many quotes. Ask yourself this question, being completely honest… If a white presidential candidate would have written those exact words in a book, can you only imagine what he would be called by the black community? There are other examples as well of obama being a total raciest but honestly, I’d rather talk about how he represents such a danger to our freedom.

        Socialism is defined as:

        “an economic system based on state ownership of capital.”

        I think it pretty well sums up what obama has done with GM, AIG, our banks and now his attempt at socialistic health care. Please wake up and I don’t mean that to antagonize you but to show you and your readers that obama has an anti-American agenda. If you enjoy and value your freedom and God given rights, then you can only hate what this man stands for.

        This coming December, obama is set to sign the “Cap and Trade” treaty. This sets the stage for a “One World Government” that will effectively remove the very freedoms you enjoy. Aside from being the largest tax this country has seen since “income tax” was implemented, this treaty paves the way for law enforcement to come into YOUR home “at will”, without a warrant and inspect your house. This, by the way, is not socialism, but fascism. Little by little, this government is dismantling and removing our freedoms and liberties piece by piece.

        So, Lets talk about Bush… He was a moron and a criminal as far as I’m concerned. One of the very worst, if not THE WORST president this country has ever seen. 9/11 was a hoax, perpetrated on the American people by Bush himself. Osama Bi Laden had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks even though he claimed responsibility. Ask yourself what our government has done to show the American people definitive proof that Osama Bin Laden was behind these attacks. Right, there is none, only Bush’s word that Bin Laden was responsible for them. To date, no good evidence has ever been publicly presented to support this fact.

        I will provide a single link to substantiate my claims of this further down. This video that I am pointing you to was made by a non-profit that is comprised of over 700 architects and engineers that prove that there was NO WAY that the WTC towers could have fallen; much less in the manner they did by coming straight down without being a controlled demolition. 9/11 was nothing more than a pretext to strip each and every one of us of our Liberties.

        After 9/11, what did Bush do? He implemented the “Patriot Act”. What did this do? It allowed the government to spy on the American people under the guise of “National Security”. This was effectively the beginning of the end of this country and our liberty. Since then, when your buddy obama was only a candidate for president, he promised to repeal the Patriot Act but instead, after his election to office, reenacted it.

        If this direct quote from the obama administration isn’t enough to shake you to your very core, then I don’t know what will. Please keep in mind, our First Amendment right of freedom of speech as you read this and see if this touches a nerve.

        The Obama administration has announced a program asking everyone to spy on their neighbors. The call for an army of spies was announced in a White House’s internet site blog:

        There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.”

        Are we dealing with Socialism here? No. Maybe with fascism? You bet!

        Obama promised many things such as ending the war in Iraq but instead continues the war. I could go on and on and on about what a detriment this guy is to each and every true Patriot and freedom lover but I will stop here and let you digest all of this. Oh, by the way… Homeland Security has openly stated that if your views don’t align with the government’s then you could be classified a terrorist. The wording of the Patriot Act is so broad and open that anyone can be classified as a terrorist. Are you on a “no fly” list because of a medical condition? Then you could find yourself labeled as a terrorist.

        Let’s look at marshal law for a moment. There are approximately 600 “FEMA camps” located all throughout the United States that are empty. These camps are set up to house Americans in time of “Civil Unrest”. Obama himself has said we need “Civilian armies” to help the American soldiers here at home. I personally believe that these civilian armies will be used along side of our American soldiers in these times of unrest.

        All of this just turns my stomach! What are even worse are the bleeding hearts that refuse to wake up and see things for what they truly are, believing that obama wants and is the best for our nation.

        This is a 2 hour video of the truth about 9/11. Please watch it in its entirety.
