So Obama might just be the next president of the U.S.. While I applaud his position, I also have to signal the need for his black supporters to “wake up and smell what’s brewing”.

I mentioned in previous post how a Barack win will bring about a new type of perspective on blacks in the eyes of quite a bit of White America. The first thought that comes to mind is that since he is articulate (like millions upon millions of other Blacks) and (if) he actually wins the presidency and does his time in the White House, then this will provide a step forward in the area of racial relations in this country.

Then comes: Racism? What Racism”.

This is where the “wake up” comes in. The Obama-Clinton race for the Democrat nomination demonstrated just how much racism is still in existence in this country. It’s true the mere fact a black man can be seen as a viable candidate for the Presidency and receive millions upon millions of votes from white voters is surely a sign that race relations have taken a monumental leap from the year I was born (68).

On the contrary, the venomous campaign approach Clinton used to stay in the race showed just how easily it is to stoke white racist feelings about black men and people in general, and use it as a motivating tool to go against anything that involves the improvement of black people, whether it be in their personal lives or the perception of black life/people in all of the Americas.

Which brings me to this; A blacks ability to advance in this country is going to take a DRAMATIC change with an Obama Presidency.

Expect more heated and intense challenges to affirmative action from whites.

Expect even more scrutiny when the need to use anti-discrimination laws justifiably arise

Expect more charges that blacks are racist towards whites

Expect there to be a perception that everything is level now. We do have a black president, you know…

The days of a Shaq rapping about Kobe (justifiably) and using the n word without receiving heat are gone. Shaq got a taste of that years ago when he mocked Chinese dialect when making a statement about Yao Ming.

Black people, if we are going to cry a hissy fit about a guy like Imus saying the N word or something racist, we’ve got to expect that we need to be held to the same standard.

It’s a unique time for black people here in the U.S.. I for one believe it’s going to be a good, positive change overall. It’s going to be tough. The majority (whites) still and will continue to do things that WE blacks know are racist.

It happens to me at least once a day as a black man. Every singe f_ckin day. Sometimes in small subtle occurances. Other times in ways that simply Makes Me Wanna Holla!

It’s time for us to police our own. We have alot of growing to do within our own community. Our own little Zimbabwe’s and Mugabe’s across the country within our own communities. We’ve been needing a jolt and I believe the Obama experience is and will catapult us into the next episode.

Who ever would have known these three groups had something in common. They all won’t vote for a brotha! The first group is a given. It’s like living under a rock. Kentucky & West Virginia are examples of places that suffer from having not been affected by integration. And don’t say their the better for it. I don’t think either state makes the list of the most desirable places to live in the past 60 publications of “Best Places to Live” (if there are 60). More like the states more likely to have an inbred affect a national election.

The second group is sort of a surprise. Maybe it’s more of the “we should go first” mentality (chivalry is not thought of when a man thinks about Hillary Clinton, sorry). This group has certainly shown it’s racist Willie Horton side by uttering the “I’ll leave the party and vote for McCain (the serial sexist) because Obama, gulp, “is terribly sexist” (see Geraldine “Fiero”) crap. This whole position makes no sense and should be terribly embarrassing to any woman uttering it who claims to be a feminist. I mean you do know McCain called his wife a “cunt”. In public. Dude is “seriously terribly sexist”. Oh, I get it. Your doing your vaunted “Jedi Mind Trick” impersonation. Say one thing you know will not be challenged (because you always resort to the “men are sexist” card ad nauseam when things don’t go your way) but really mean another (I ain’t votin’ for no black guy) and convince others (women and gay men) that this is the right position to take. Get the hell outta here, pun intended.

The last group just sorta blows me away. I mean why am I even seeing headline articles talking about ” Florida Jews unsure of Obama because of Isreal”. Who gives a sh_t. look, I admire how zealous Jews are about their culture. But when it starts using MY COUNTRY as it’s tool in it’s zealous approach towards defending it’s culture, to the tune where American Soldiers loose their lives because of the agenda of the Jewish controlled “neo conservative” movement that put Dupya in office; well I gotta draw the line! You screwed up the last two elections. Thank God your idiot Democrat leadership in Florida blundered in moving up your primaries to the dismay of Howard Dean! Your outta the equation.

Isreal has nothing to do with $4 gas, the rising cost of food and people loosing their jobs here in the U.S.. I DON’T CARE ABOUT ISREAL! I care about being able to buy my daughter a pair of frickin shoes and putting food on my diner table! (Or does it? Hmmmmmm)

As a black guy, I don’t have a lot of images of like figures in the public that do me good and dilutes the negative stereotypes that so many others in my breathen constantly fuel (Thanks for nothing 50 Cent/Adam “Pac Man” Jones/and just about every southern rapper). Obama does just that! Thats just one of the reasons I support the man. Did I vote for Alan Keyes when he was running for President? Hell no I didn’t. I voted for a white guy. There.

U.S. Jews, on the other hand, has Joe Lieberman leading their charge and looking like a fool. Come to think of it, I don’t feel so bad. We’ve got 50 Cent, you’ve got Joe Lieberman. Geesh. Just think, that guy could have been the Vice President of the United States. What was Al Gore thinking?
