When I have said, many times, that all Black America expects from Obama is that he be Black and a Democrat, this is what I am talking about:


A people who are this confused about who they are cannot become self-determinate. The white racists who rule this country, and resent your very existence, smile with glee when they hear you talking like Sharpton did on 60 Minutes because they know they do not have to lift a finger to keep you on the plantation. You like it there and have no intention of leaving.

In this next clip, Cornel West makes the analogy I have made elsewhere --- which is that Obama's argument defending his use of drones to kill Arab children is _EXACTLY_ the same argument Zimmerman used to defend his killing of Trayvon Martin:


The unarmed Arab children who Obama's drones have killed were no more of a threat to the US military than Trayvon Martin was a threat to George Zimmerman.

Why has the 95% of Black America who worships Obama not recognized this? The answer is painful to hear, but it is accurate.

That 95% of Black America is selfish. They do not care about anybody's suffering other than their own.

It's good to see it's not just the media finding Trayvon Martin's death useful. It's a shame to see that this is supposedly a pro-Black message that simplifies the situation and opinions of Black people.

The viable (i.e electable) opponents in the previous two elections would not have made any dent in the war on terror and they would've further pushed domestic issues into ruin. There's really no argument that could prove otherwise. To a lot of people, Obama was the best choice in a very un-ideal situation. Providing Obama with their vote does not mean that a person agrees with everything he's done since.

In 2003, 44% of Black people supported the war compared to about 77% of White people. By 2007, Black support for the war fell to about 15% (Source: PBS 2007). If you also listen to what the military branches have been saying, they've had trouble recruiting Blacks which traditionally hasn't been much of a problem. So we can conclude that the majority of Black people probably do not agree with the War on Terror and they probably do not agree with Drone strikes or torture.

Campaign Obama would've been great if his opinion on the conflict extended to the War on Terror. Unfortunately, it did not and a lot of people are disillusioned by him or have plenty of their own criticisms despite having voted for him.

So, have Black people magically lost their righteousness mind? I do not believe they have.

This is something that's a lot more complicated than the good-vs-evil narrative the media loves to make things into.

Exactly. How would McCain or Romney have been better? Obama has his hands tied, but that's the reality of the White Power Structure. On the other hand, McCain was singing "Bomb Iran" and Romney thought America didn't have enough boats.

Fact is, many of us go to work and do what the boss tells us. That makes sense, he's the boss (because of the CONSUMERS). However it's not the worker who works that's a problem (Obama); it's the worker who works with glee (McCain and Romney.)

Until CONSUMERS get their act together, as they say, the Bourgeoisie will have total Power. One man can't beat the Bourgeoisie.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
