First of all, yes black people are racist. They can be very racist. Our racism comes from ingrained anger and a constant feeling of being oppressed. That isn’t a excuse for being a racist or a bigot. Just the facts. Even i have some racism and prejudice in my heart and i spend some time trying to get rid of it. It’s impossible since i am human of course, but at least i acknowledge it and try to curb it. Now as far as this election goes i am not voting for Obama, i just can’t. Obama’s policies have failed and the man has proven to be a empty suit or sorts. Now Romney ain’t much better in my opinion either.
What insults me are the claims from whites and blacks on the Left that is that if you don’t support Obama then you’re a racist. Wasn’t the very election of Obama supposed to herald in the new age of a Non-racist America? Apparently not, since the racist accusation has been going on since the man’s first year in office.
What is also offensive to me in some ways is that a large number of Black Americans are voting for Obama purely because he’s black, not based on policy or beliefs. In fact, many will push aside their beliefs just to vote for Obama. The selling of the proverbial soul as it is, just to give the ‘black man’ one more term. It really shines a light on how easily lead we are as a race.
In the end what makes me worry that when the next black nominee for president comes along Black America will blindly vote and follow even it said nominee drives the nation off a cliff. And what will Black America do when the country falls apart under said man’s leadership, expect to be coddled and bailed out of course. What will be truly sad is the sense of betrayal many of them will feel when their ‘great black hope’ fails to save them from the fires of their own folly.
