To My Readers: Barack Obama Week

4 06 2008

Figure 1: “When you get sad, stop being sad and be awesome instead.” -Anonymous

Shhhhhh…listen. Do ye hear that? Turn down the TV, step away from any noise, and listen well…

‘Tis the sound of crying. A deep guttural wailing, much of it coming from the south (and Boston) where the racists dwell.

Harken left! ‘Twas quick. Doth ye hear it, still?

Shattered porcelain, and a ringing. Metal discs rotate quickly and come noisily to rest, but one rogue of silver-gray rolls toward a wall to be rescued by a pale hand nigh it’s collision. The face-in-relief of the first President doesn’t look at the boy. It just seems to stare to the left, out the window, or perhaps at the pink shards of its former prison. It’s been freed from it’s cage for the first time; the little racist boy with the big racist father having smashed his piggy bank.

$6.66. It will have to be enough to order the murder of the dark candidate from the North. He knows the black lord cannot be defeated fairly: for he will cross cutlass with a mere skeleton.

Bottoms up on ye grog me hearties, yo ho! The nomination is Barack’s!

I wrote myself a Haiku to celebrate:

Rednecks are sobbing
Black men sprint to the White House
McCain is too old

In continued celebration of what I hope to God is the inevitable, I’m keeping the new Barack Obama banner at the top of the site for at least one week. He is our honorary angry black man, and yes he is angry no matter how much you see him smile.

I’d like to know how everyone else celebrated and otherwise reacted to the news of the clinching of the nomination. I, for one, stood on my balcony laughing like an absolute maniac for fifteen minutes and, I shit you not, was joined in my bellowing guffaws by three black people and one white guy in the next building over.

Sorry, Hil-Dawg. You fought one hell of a fight:

  • You first declared a top-down candidacy that you labeled ‘inevitable’, running on a platform as an establishment candidate.
  • When that didn’t work, you called yourself a candidate of change.
  • When that didn’t work, you compared your rival’s candidacy to that of Jesse Jackson – and you even cried a little.
  • But that didn’t work either, so you tried to quash the black vote by appealing to Black vs. Latin sentiment.
  • When that strategy fell on its ass, you resorted to good old Clintonian/Rovian scare tactics, taking out red phone ads and even calling John McCain more qualified for the job.
  • Then you really dug into the shit pit making tacit claims that Obama wasn’t good enough for white voters. Of course…that didn’t work either.
  • When it finally became clear you might actually lose, you went completely apeshit.
  • First, you started making dubious claims that you were ahead in the popular vote (so long as you count Michigan and Florida, and exclude all caucus votes). You tried to convince the DNC that this heavily-altered popular vote was the criteria for taking the nomination. The Clintons actually tried to move the goalposts of a decades-established election playing field to suit their needs at the moment. THAT, my friends, is how you act WHITE.
  • Second, you suddenly decided that Michigan and Florida were the most important states in the universe. Quietly brushing over the fact that you initially supported the DNC’s punishment of those states for breaking the rules, you fought to get all their delegates reinstated…and you fucking SUCCEEDED!

Ever since Iowa, you tried to latch on to an ‘underdog’ status and, at the very least, convince everyone that you were a tenacious fighter. But here’s the thing, ‘sweetie’ (as my idol would say) – Obama was the one fighting the establishment candidate. Obama was the one who prevailed despite your SUCCESSFULLY changing the rules of the game THROUGHOUT the primary season. Obama was the one who prevailed despite your scare tactics, racist divide-and-conquer strategy, and even your outright lies fed to and swallowed by the media. Yes, Hill, you are quite possibly the most incredible fighter I’ve ever seen…

…but Obama outfought YOU.

God Bless America.

Its nice to know how you feel about people such as myself. I guess diversity doesn’t work after all does it? You are empirical evidence of that. At least we tried but now we know. Just remember, you drew first blood.

Chris, you are stretching the truth a bit are you not, Obama is not very angry, maybe his former spiritual advisers Michael Pfleger and the Black Jesuit Jeremiah Wright. I kind of glad that Obama has not fallen to anger route because that is a cull de sac.

I feel sorry for Hilary, wow I cannot believe it given who I know she is. I will not elaborate but I can wisper it to anyone who contact me. Vince Foster and Ron Brown must be singing from their graves.

Chris can I buy a spot on your blogroll since I have been a consistent contributer to this blog?

Anyone with half a brain is angry, Stuffgirlslike. I don’t know what rose colored glasses your arse is wearing, but I am assuming they came with a little white powder and a whole heap of tunnel vision.

However, Chris you might want to take that banner down before this site is on Fox News and they start talking about this radical Black militant blogger (all your claims to bi-raciality disappear when you are deemed ‘angry’) and his hate speak and how this is Barack’s favorite site. Shit, when they find out that I was his daughter’s camp counselor, they might force him to drop out the race!

Did y’all see Michele dap Barack up before he spoke? That brought a tear to my eyes. I might even believe in Black love again.

Also-The future president lives down the street from MY crib! HYDE PARK STAND UP!!!!!!

Words cannot describe how I feel about this moment in history! 🙂 My daughter and I jumped up and down in front of the tv. She is very excited as am I. I think it is really awesome how so many youth are actively following and are involved in this campaign. I just pray that he wins the presidency, if not I am seriously considering leaving the country. I am frightened by what McCain has up his sleeve.. Iran!

…yawn
Yes one Angry Black Male with a blog is empirical evidence of the failure of diversity.

I’ve gotta say I was hoping that Obama would have squashed Hill a long time ago. I was all for the long haul until she started with, well you know, the evil . However, this was quite a satisfying outcome. The first thing I did waschange my facebook status to let the Hill supporters who hadn’t heard know what went down. ThenI shot a txt to everyone in my phonebook. I think I will be having a chicken and waffle party to celebrate if he wins in November.

Well, Brian Williams and Chris Matthews interrupted Law and Order SVU twice last night to proclaim the news of Obama’s mathematical victory…. and Hillary Clinton’s unfortunate delusion.

My soul is conflicted. I wish Obama were an Angry Black Man – in the truth telling sense. Instead I see a symbol of what “we” as Americans want to believe, rather than a true representation of where this country is in terms of social advancement. Americans are doing a collective pat-on-the-back thinking we’ve arrived. I’m not hopeful or disappointed about this. Just intrigued…

I also think it’s pretty ironic that folks like Geraldine Ferraro really believe that their real gripe with Obama is a fear that as president he will “leave white people behind” with his “black agenda”. For realzies? That’s possible these days? Wait. He has a Black agenda? Cuz this Black Agenda would beg to differ… http://www.blackagendareport.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=643&Itemid=1

Here is an excerpt of Ferraro’s article from the Boston Globe (hehe. Boston. Yes, lots of wailing… Go Lakers!) and some analysis from theroot.com – http://www.theroot.com/id/46697

Am I just paranoid, or did anyone else feel “different” when they woke up this morning, showered, had breakfast, commuted to work/school, is it just me? I love that Obama is SBPH’s Honorary Angry Black man, love it!

ST – yes, the dap! In her purple dress!

Anger, to me, isn’t such a one-dimensional emotion, like happiness. Anger helped motivate us. it’s okay to be angry so long as it’s channeled properly.

I am co-signing, biting off of, agreeing with, giving a pound to Sister Toldja.
Anyone with a sufficient amount of chromosomes and any kind of morals is mad as hell at the state of the United States.

Even more mad at McCain’s stupid countdown for when Barack last visited Iraq. McCain should DRIVE (not fly) up and down the East Coast and through some inner cities if he wants to visit somewhere. How bout fix THIS country homie or there will be nothing left for the terrorists.

My fav part of the appearance last night: the OH SO BLACK pound that Michele gave Barack. I just KNOW that pissed some white people off. It wasnt like the skater fist on top of fist pound, it was the YEEEAA BOOOYYY flava flav pound. YOU GO GIRL

SHIT!! I’m not gonna get any work done today.

My celebration went a lot like yours. More screaming at the top of my lungs than laughing though. I half expected the neighbors to come tell me to keep it down. That and a long night of phone calls with a ton of relatives who never thought they’d see the day.

ST, I saw your comment last night about Michelle giving Barack some dap so I had to go look it up on The Google. Its my new facebook profile pic.

I’m excited, but I’m still really skeptical. Like Mos Def said, “When you start keeping pace, they start switching up the tempo.” “Moving the goal post,” as Chris called it. I’m still waiting for the other shoe to drop. Some special congressional hearing that makes a new law saying your father must be born in the U.S. or something crazy like that.

The media cracks me up saying that Hillary Clinton is “willing” to take the VP spot. Nobody OFFERED her the VP role!! He’s not going to pick here. She’s politricks as usual. I hope her supporters that say they’ll vote for McCain come to their senses.

4 06 2008
Esquire

Any of her supporters that truly would vote for McCain are only doing so because they are blatant racists. So he can have it.

Obama and Hill are very similar on most issues. McCain is totally the opposite of them.

4 06 2008
southernvoice

Where is Michel’s big hat? EVeryone knows you are not dressed without a hat.

After all that the Clintons did for black people and now Hillary is talked about like she is a dog.

What exactly do you all think Obama is going to do for you? He once supported the Palestinian people until he ran for office and realized who pulls the purse strings and then he became an avid Zionist.

Rahm Emanuel is the democrat who chooses party nominees. He was born in Israel and served in its military and now he is a king maker in the United States government. You figure it out.

Name one country in the world that is governed by black people that is successful. Black people running America. I don’t think so.

Colin Powell went before the UN and lied his head off like the lap dog he is in order to serve his neocon Zionist masters. Obama knows who will yank his chain and it sure as hell isn’t people like you.

I would never vote for mad dog mccain who has his nose all the way up hymie ass and is like a character out of a Joseph Conrad novel but I would never vote for Obama either. I will support Ralph Nader who cares only about America and ALL Americans.

I think its time for some angry white men to come along and save our country. I certainly don’t want to make America like Kenya.

Yes Obama is showing his anger by employing Zbegniew Brezinski as an adviser? Obam is business as usual, there will be internationalist twisting and turning him, after all Michelle is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

I would like to see black anger against those who want to confiscate liberties like the right to own a gun.

Remember to stay angry. If anyone opposes Obama its because they be racist. The world is full of racists and all of them hate black people cause you be black.

The place to go is up North with the exception of Boston which has too many racist Irish people.

Remember. Up North. Leave Atlanta and Memphis which have more murders per capita than NYC because of course southerners be racist.

What will Obama do about the problems of Health care in America. Today South Africa turns to Cuba in order to get health care. Thats because South Africa now has a black government and its a country that is just too much for those who never founded it or built it.

I guess we can now look to Cuba for America’s health care.

The way for blacks to get power is to breed like flies and overwhelm the white population with your numbers because you sure won’t overwhelm anyone with your smarts.

And be angry and carry knives. Just don’t forget and use them on one another.

WTF

I’m sorry. What have the Clinton’s done for ‘us?’ Americans? Blacks? Women? Humans? Who is this mythical US? Contrary to belief, Clinton was not the first ‘Black’ president. Sure, he had a good team around him to make it symbolically seem as though his policies were pro-Black. However, the economy was great under his watch and as a result ALL AMERICANS benefited. He is and always was quite moderate. I used to respect Hillary Clinton, but as Chris mentioned, her campaign tactics were low. I didn’t appreciate that at all. Perhaps if her campaign slogan had not been: ENTITLEMENT, this might sting less!

Friends, what is the point in coming on this site to spew off nonsense? I find it hilarious that Hillarys supporters think that all black people dont like her. Im still a HUGE fan of the Clintons. But they didnt do more for black people than any BLACK civil rights leader did. Some of her supporters should stop trying to act as if the damn Clintons saved the “po” dahkies.

Please. Get over it. He got the nomination. We could spend all day arguing about all the bad black leaders there have been and YEARS spewing off all the TERRRRRIBLE WHITE leaders there have been. Pointless…let’s move on.

BTW: Ralph Nader sux. lol

Ah…the racist(s) will be out in full effect today, huh? Anywhoo, I think I was probably one of the very few folks that wasn’t uber thrilled about Obama from the jump…but I certainly did respect him. After Super Tuesday in February, I knew dude had the nom for sure…Hilary was delusional and delaying the inevitable. She is a STRAIGHT hater…and Obama would be a fool to choose her as his running mate.
Even though I’m NOT a Democrat…I will definitely suport B-Rock (as I like to call him). I LOVE the photo of him and Michelle with the fist pound…GO BLACK LOVE and GO OBAMA!

Aint enough Maya Angelou poems and sax riffs in the world to say that Bill Clinton was a true friend to Black people.

A lil history lesson for SouthernVoice

The best case for Black ancestry is against Warren G. Harding, our 29th president from 1921 until 1923. Harding himself never denied his ancestry. When Republican leaders called on Harding to deny the “Negro” history, he said, “How should I know whether or not one of my ancestors might have jumped the fence.” William Chancellor, a White professor of economics and politics at Wooster College in Ohio, wrote a book on the Harding family genealogy and identified Black ancestors among both parents of President Harding. Justice Department agents allegedly bought and destroyed all copies of this book. Chancellor also said that Harding’s only academic credentials included education at Iberia College, which was founded in order to educate fugitive slaves.

Andrew Jackson was our 7th president from 1829 to 1837. The Virginia Magazine of History Volume 29 says that Jackson was the son of a White woman from Ireland who had intermarried with a Negro. The magazine also said that his eldest brother had been sold as a slave in Carolina. Joel Rogers says that Andrew Jackson Sr. died long before President Andrew Jackson Jr. was born. He says the president’s mother then went to live on the Crawford farm where there were Negro slaves and that one of these men was Andrew Jr’s father. Another account of the “brother sold into slavery” story can be found in David Coyle’s book entitled “Ordeal of the Presidency” (1960).

Thomas Jefferson was our 3rd president from 1801 to 1809. The chief attack on Jefferson was in a book written by Thomas Hazard in 1867 called “The Johnny Cake Papers.” Hazard interviewed Paris Gardiner, who said he was present during the 1796 presidential campaign, when one speaker states that Thomas Jefferson was “a mean-spirited son of a half-breed Indian squaw and a Virginia mulatto father.” In his book entitled “The Slave Children of Thomas Jefferson,” Samuel Sloan wrote that Jefferson destroyed all of the papers, portraits, and personal effects of his mother, Jane Randolph Jefferson, when she died on March 31, 1776. He even wrote letters to every person who had ever received a letter from his mother, asking them to return that letter. Sloan says, “There is something strange and even psychopathic about the lengths to which Thomas Jefferson went to destroy all remembrances of his mother, while saving over 18,000 copies of his own letters and other documents for posterity.” One must ask, “What is it he was trying to hide?”

Abraham Lincoln was our 16th president from 1861 to 1865. J. A. Rogers quotes Lincoln’s mother, Nancy Hanks, as saying that Abraham Lincoln was the illegitimate son of an African man. William Herndon, Lincoln’s law partner, said that Lincoln had very dark skin and coarse hair and that his mother was from an Ethiopian tribe. In Herndon’s book entitled “The Hidden Lincoln” he says that Thomas Lincoln could not have been Abraham Lincoln’s father because he was sterile from childhood mumps and was later castrated. Lincoln’s presidential opponents made cartoon drawings depicting him as a Negro and nicknamed him “Abraham Africanus the First.”

Calvin Coolidge was our 30th president, and he succeeded Warren Harding. He proudly admitted that his mother was dark because of mixed Indian ancestry. However, Dr. Bakhufu says that by 1800 the New England Indian was hardly any longer pure Indian, because they had mixed so often with Blacks. Calvin Coolidge’s mother’s maiden name was “Moor.” In Europe the name “Moor” was given to all Black people just as the name Negro was used in America.

Love that history lesson, Cola…I just learned something this morning about some of our Presidents! But folks would indeed be crazy to think that ALL of our Presidents have been of pure blood Euro descent. After all, as many “massas” that loved the “dark meat”…it’s plenty of “white folks” that have black ancestors and they just don’t know it.
I always wondered about Abe, on the real though…but I thought he might have had Indian ancestry…

LMAO @ her asking people to write in to tell her what to do. Hopefully at least ONE of them writes “Go to hell”. And BOOO to her triflin’ ass playing Tina Turner’s “Simply the Best” as her theme song. She just HAD to get that last dig in.

And don’t even get me started on McCain’s weak ass speech delivered to like 15 of his cousins. The hell was he tryin’ to intimidate?

The dap: Fabulous.

Michelle’s Jackie O’ ness: fabulous.

Chris’ sentence, “The Clintons actually tried to move the goalposts of a decades-established election playing field to suit their needs at the moment. THAT, my friends, is how you act WHITE.” So fabulously effing true.

Did anyone notice Wolf Blitzer validating Hillary’s claim? He was like “in two situations Hillary did in fact win the popular vote.” Um yeah when you count Michigan and Florida and when you don’t count the caucuses. Not that it matters anyway. But damn him for having those 6′ pie charts behind him showing Hillary as the winner.

Not to take the conversation away from the dap and the dress, but to pose a question: Do you think that this will have a positive direct effect on the Young Black Male? I don’t expect their college enrollment to surge overnight – but in the same way that Jay-Z was able to make basketball jersey’s cool and then uncool (hate him or love him, the man has influence (if only he used his powers for good)), do you think that this historic victory (that’s what it is, even if he doesn’t become president) will make our YBMs stand up straighter, stick their chests out more, aspire to be something more than a “Soldier” (eff you Beyonce!!)? Am I dreaming too much? Maybe I’m just too high on life today.

Last night I cried during Obama’s speech. This morning when I heard him, I cried again. These are tears of pure joy because for once in our nation’s history an honorable Black man has a fighting chance to be President of the United States. In fact my soul is telling me that he will defeat McCain and our country will enter an age where people have a fighting chance to make something of their lives.

Obama is the reason why I entered the Conservative recovery program. For a long time I became disgusted with the Democrates and how they have taken advantage of the African American vote. I thought I would give them finger by joining with the enemy however I quickly learned that the Old Boy’s Club had no interest in uplifting Black people, which is my priority.

On a personall note, it’s been an honor volunteering for Obama’s campaign in California. I’ve met some remarkable people who are truly motivated to change the status quo and give EVERYONE regardless of socio-economic status the chance to live the American Dream.

Obama becoming president will uplift the Black community in ways that have never happened before. Little Black boys and girls will see that hey if they work hard and hit the books maybe they can be president too. Kids who grew up poor will be motivated to know that a man who came from nothing rose to one of the most powerful positions in the world.

As I’m typing this, I’m getting teary-eyed because Obama is symbolic of the potiential greatness this country has. I love that Obama and Michelle because are a dynamic team representing the best the Black community has to offer. Their relationship is respresentative of love, compassion, and respect for each other. I don’t get that vibe from the Clintons (for obvious reasons). Nevertheless I will never forget yesterday and one day when I have kids and having a President who is Black, a woman, or another minority isn’t that big of a deal, I can tell them the story of Barack Obama.

Let us move forward joyously and unitedly. Let us stop the in-fighting among democrats and progress as a united front. Let us not forget what happened The Last Time and that we will need to win by a landslide so as to avoid any recounting bullshit.

I think Obama should pick Richardson and give up on the “downscale whites.” As a lifelong Texan, I am accutely aware of the fact that you cannot educate the extremely ignorant. There is nothing that can be done to make the Bush/ignorance lovers in my otherwise fine state vote for a black man that isn’t carrying a football (see e.g. Emmitt Smith on Dancing with the Stars). So instead he should focus on bridging the widening divide between blacks and Latinos while continuing to strengthen his “elitist” base.

P.S. When did having an education and/or wanting to learn become elitist? I think it happened around the time the world became aware that there are large numbers of black people that not only speak well but who can also read.

The Obamas were too cute with the fist bump. Apparently “people” (ie Clintonistas) have been giving them flack about being too publicly affectionate. Just because the Clintons* act as awkward as a couple who show up on a blind date to find out the person lied about their gender does not mean people who genuinely love each other have to hide it.

*How WAS Chelsea conceived anyhow? Did Bill have to drink a bottle of tequila first? I don’t believe the Clintons have touched since “you may now kiss the bride.”

The_Six_Black_Presidents.pdf
179K View as HTML Download

but here’s the rub.

First, I have not researched to substantiate these claims of former
“Six Black U.S. Presidents”, although the assertions I have heard
before and certainly don’t find hard to believe. Mulattos; people of
direct descent from Black and White ancestry in this country have
“passed” for Caucasian/White when they could for many different
reasons. Politically it has been persona non grata to imagine as
President of the United States one who is seen and accepted as
Black/African American until NOW. Well it is all about perception
isn’t it, whether real or imagined. “The Six Black U.S. Presidents” I
am sure were supposed and accepted by the masses as White men
primarily by way of their likeness if not of their own volition and
association. One can only choose what they are aware of. It’s ironic
that a person that is perceived as Black/African American regardless
of their heterogeneous lineage is relegated as only Black. So all this
talk about the possibility of the 1st African American/Black President
even IF not technically true has gravity in this context because for
the 1st time the U.S.A could have its 1st perceived and accepted
Black/African American Chief of State. It is substantive because our
country could have a Commander in Chief that has lived the “Black
Experience” in America. It is an experience with which some can
sympathize but not fully comprehend unless they have lived the
experience without choice.

southernvoice- is your mother your sister? What EXACTLY did BILL or HILARY do for blackpeople? Obama was dragged through the mud by blacks, whites, and every other creed, ‘he isn’t black enough, his pastor is crazy, he is a muslim’ – c’mon man. Obama is a viable candidate, angry in the sense that he is FED UP with the state of this country. He doesn’t have to yell and scream and be violent, he is doing superbly and channeling his issues into change and positive solution! My son and i will be celebrating this moment, I am so proud to have seen this in my lifetime! I would jsut like obama to get soem NEW secret service and tighten up his immediate circle cause it’s gon get real rough out here for him but I know he can take it and prevail over the political BS this country pulls every day.

And who said Obama was creole- listen Jerk, his father is AFRICAN and his mother is white. Even if he were creole is that supposed to discount how blakcs look at him. Remember 1/16th is all you need to be considered black in this country so everybody got a lil balck in them- ya heard?

People criticize the Obamas because people are not accustomed to a functioning black couple in the spotlight. Even the Cosby image got tarnished once you realized Bill was crazy with all his infidelities and Phylicia was getting her ass kicked on the regular. I love how this country claims “family values” but when people really are acting as a family, it’s too much. People are uncomfortable with Black love because its passionate and spiritual and deeper than the rest. The Clintons look so forced and power-hungry on stage. The Obamas look genuine. And with Michelle being a woman fully grown and capable of raising two beautiful daughters, support her man AND hold her own (6 figure salary, ya dig) it completely debunks the myth of the salacious, castrating black woman.

I agree. It’s anonymous. Why don’t they just say “I don’t like black people?” I’m confortable saying “I’m sick of white people.” And “There’s something about Hillary’s eyes (and lesbionic haircut) that I just don’t trust.” That was before she gave me enough fodder for actual hatred, rathr than simple distrust.

Now I live in San Antonio a.k.a “Little Mexico” a.k.a. “Hillaryville” and they are open about their racism. They don’t know why they like Hillary more so they’ll just say it’s cause she’s white.

Be proud of your man Democrats. His resiliency has been astounding. The biggest thing that worries me about Obama getting the nomination and possibly the Presidency is his security. I for one believe that Ron Brown’s death was not an accident. There were to many shady details involved in the whole situation. I also believe the Clintons were responsible in some way with the tragedy. At this point, I don’t think ANYTHING is beyond the Clinton’s quest to retain power. Hillary as a running mate would be a death wish. The other thing that scares me is all of the people in this country (not people, nutcases) who believe that a man with black heritage is capable of running the country. It is unbelievable how many backwoods, redneck hicks there are who don’t give a shit, and would die trying to (in their mind) defend the country. Unfortunately, if Obama was assasinated it would be destructive to this nation that (in my mind) is still the greatest in the world. I may sound like a pessimist in this case, but the consequences would be monumental.

I understand that most black people in America hate Hillary Clinton, with an extreme passion. But I think we need to remember that a lot of the states that Obama won were Republican states that Dems have no chance of winning in the GE. The swing states were mostly won by Clinton. If Barack fails to choose Clinton as his VP, I have doubts that he will lose the GE. Most of the swing state voters who voted for Hillary (white women and men) have already said that either they will simply not vote for Obama or will vote for McCain. I do not think these words are threats, but promises. It is going to be a tough road to travel starting November. I don’t want anyone on here to think I don’t have faith in Barack as a leader, because I do, I just don’t have faith in white people. If Barack wants to get the votes from these swing states, he is going to have to choose her for his running mate. We all know that all racists in this country are going to do everything in their power to stop Obama from winning this GE. We’ve seen what can happen once (Bush vs. Gore, how did Bush win that ish???). And lets be honest, Clinton is not going to do anything to Obama because she would be the prime suspect in the case.

As black people, we have to stop alienating ourselves from other races and be open to anything that will get Obama elected in the GE. This must be the goal and attained by any means necessary. I hear so many black people be down right mean (and dare I say even racist) to anyone who doesn’t think like we do. When Puerto Rico voted for Clinton, almost every blog I came across, we were dissing the entire latin/Hispanic race. That’s offensive, it alienates us, and it has to stop.

We also have to understand that this is the republicans plan, this is how they are going to win, just how lands have been conquered by white/Caucasian/Europeans. Divide and conquer. If they divide us, they will win, just as they always have. Let’s please stick together.

Just my opinions, I hope I won’t get moliwopped on here now.

The Six Black U.S. Presidents
If elected, would Barack Obama, be the first black president of the United States?
What determines if a person is black or of African descent? In the 19th and 20th centuries, the standard for determining one’s race was, one drop of black blood, made you black, socially and in the eyes of the law. So by that standard, it would appear some U.S. presidents would have been considered black or mullatto.

Mulatto (-noun 1. the offspring of one white parent and one black parent: not in technical use. 2. A person whose ancestry is a mixture of Negro and Caucasian. Adjective 3. Of a light-brown color.

In February of 2004, an article was written by C. Stone Brown, titled “Who were the 5 Black Presidents?” for DiversityInc magazine. The article was based on a book by Dr. Leroy Vaughn an opthalmogist titled “Black People and Their Place in History”. The following text is a collaboration of his theories and other known historians and authors.

Thomas Jefferson the third elected president, who served two terms between 1801 and 1809 was described as the “son of a half-breed Indian squaw and a Virginia mulatto father,” as stated in Vaughn’s findings. Jefferson also was said to have destroyed all documentation attached to his mother, even going to extremes to seize letters written by his mother to other people. Only in recent years did the family of Thomas Jefferson acknowledged he was the father of the (5 or 6)
children born to a slave on his plantation, Sally Hemmings. President Andrew Jackson, the nation’s seventh president, was in office between 1829 and 1837. A renowned African American historian J. A. Rogers, author of the “Five Black Presidents” wrote that Andrew Jackson Sr. died before his son, President Andrew Jackson Jr., was born. The president’s mother then went to live on the Crawford farm, where there were Negro slaves and one of these men was Andrew Jr.’s father, Rogers wrote. Vaughn cites an article written in The Virginia Magazine of History that Jackson was the son of an Irish woman who married a black man. The magazine also stated that Jackson’s oldest brother had been sold as a slave.

Abraham Lincoln, the nation’s 16th president, served between 1861 and 1865. Author Vaughn, states Lincoln had very dark skin and coarse hair and his mother allegedly came from an Ethiopian tribe. His heritage fueled so much controversy that Lincoln was nicknamed “Abraham Africans the First” by his presidential opponents and cartoons were drawn depicting him as a
Negro. In a book, titled “The Hidden Lincoln” written by William Herndon, Lincoln’s law-office partner said that Lincoln’s father of record, Thomas Lincoln, could not have been Lincoln’s father because he was sterile from childhood mumps and later was castrated.

President Warren Harding, the 29th president, in office between 1921 and 1923, apparently never denied his ancestry. According to Vaughn, William Chancellor, a professor of economics and politics at Wooster College in Ohio, wrote a book on the Harding family genealogy. Evidently, Harding had black ancestors between both sets of parents. Chancellor also said that
Harding attended Iberia College, a school founded to educate fugitive slaves. Professor Chancellor says the Justice Department agents allegedly bought and destroyed all copies of this book. Harding suffered nervous breakdowns at the age of 24 and had to spend some time in a sanitarium. Between 1889 and 1901, Harding paid five “protracted” visits to the J. P. Kellogg sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan “to recover from fatigue, overstrain, and nervous illnesses.” Some speculate his illness was due to the pressure of not fully disclosing his black heritage and living as “white”.

Warren%20Harding%20and%20Jim%20Crow.htm

Calvin Coolidge, the nation’s 30th president, served between 1923 and 1929 and supposedly was proud of his heritage. He claimed his mother was dark because of mixed Indian ancestry. This notion was disputed by Auset Bakhufu, author of “The Six Black Presidents” who said in her book that by the 1800s, the New England Indians hardly were pure Indian, because they had mixed so often with blacks. Coolidge’s mother’s maiden name was “Moor” and in Europe the name “Moor” was given to all blacks just as “Negro” was used in America. It later was concluded that Coolidge was part black.

The last elected “black” president was Dwight David Eisenhower who served from 1953 to 1961, the 34th president. Eisenhower’s mother, Ida Elizabeth Stover was a mullato woman making Eisenhower part black. Eisenhower as president moved military integration from a law to
reality. He battered Arkansas Gov. Orval Faubus with federal force to desegregate Little Rock’s Central High School. He was the first President to elevate an African- American to an executive position in the White House. He established the first regulations to prohibit racial discrimination in the federal workforce. He was the first President since Reconstruction to meet with Civil Rights leaders in the White House. He helped turn Washington, D.C., into an integrated city.

The only difference between Barack Obama and most of the former “black” presidents is that none of their family histories were fully acknowledged by others or their selves. Even though Obama is half-white, he strongly resembles his Kenyan father. And not only is Obama open about his ancestry, most people acknowledge and recognize him as a black man, which is why people will identify Obama, if elected, as the first black president of the United States.

@ keepitreal – I disagree about Clinton as VP. Obama’s appeal is that he isn’t establishment/old money/old news. That’s why I want John Edwards as VP. He grew up poor and Southern – plus he’s a white male. He will fill that gap in Obama’s popularity.

And I am OVER the black vs brown thing

Obama has earned the right to pick his running mate. I hope that John Edwards changes his mind and goes for VP because he will be a great asset to President Obama in getting some of those conservative southern votes. As for Hilary she has played a dirty game and it backfired. Her supporters are uneducated middle aged white folks and to be completely honest I do not want anyone like that dictating the direction of our country. Seriously. If anyone is offended then take it up with God because I could careless at this point. Someone on freaking West Virginia should not dictate US policy. In the event that we are attacked, Hamas or any other terrorist group is not going to bomb West Virginia. That’s how irrelevant they are.

*dead* @ “take it up with God.”

4 06 2008
Muse

Here is a potiential list of VPs that have been thrown around.

* Joseph Biden, 65 – The senator from Delaware, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is a respected foreign policy expert who would give Obama authority on the issue. But Obama might not want to add a second senator to the ticket, and could be looking for a fresher face to reinforce his message that this election is about change and the future.

* Wesley Clark, 63 – A retired Army general and former NATO commander who ran unsuccessfully for the presidential nomination in 2004, Clark is a supporter of Hillary Clinton who could help rally the party and provide a boost on national security issues. But he did not run a strong campaign in 2004 and he would be unlikely to generate much enthusiasm among party activists.

* Hillary Clinton, 60 – Polls have shown strong Democratic support for a “dream team” ticket of Obama and Clinton, his top rival for the nomination. Obama has not ruled out the option, which would help unify the party after a grueling nominating battle. But Clinton also would bring complications, including the return of former President Bill Clinton to the White House. A joint ticket could help attract some of Clinton’s supporters — including women and white working-class Democrats — who have been reluctant to support Obama.

* Chris Dodd, 64 – The Connecticut senator, a fluent Spanish speaker and expert in Latin American issues, is the chairman of the Senate Banking Committee and a former foe for the presidential nomination who quickly endorsed Obama after dropping out. He would help bolster Obama’s foreign policy and economic credentials, but presents many of the same drawbacks as Biden.

* Chuck Hagel, 61 – The Republican senator from Nebraska, a conservative Vietnam veteran but outspoken critic of the Iraq war, would help Obama reach out to independents and Republicans and reinforce his promise to bridge partisan divides.

* Tim Kaine, 50 – The Virginia governor was one of Obama’s earliest and strongest supporters and could help him in a state that traditionally has been Republican in presidential elections but has been turning Democratic in recent years.

* Sam Nunn, 69 – The former Armed Services Committee chairman from Georgia is a respected foreign and military policy voice, but his age and conservative view on some social issues might make him an awkward fit with Obama.

* Ed Rendell, 64 – The Pennsylvania governor has been one of Clinton’s strongest campaigners and he could help woo her supporters and help deliver a key state. A former district attorney and the mayor of Philadelphia, Rendell has executive experience that could help Obama.

* Bill Richardson, 60 – New Mexico governor, a Hispanic, could help with Latino vote — the fastest-growing segment of the electorate and a potentially vital voting bloc. A seasoned negotiator, the former energy secretary and U.N. ambassador would also bring foreign policy experience to the ticket as well as inside knowledge of how Washington works.

* Kathleen Sebelius, 60 – Two-term governor of Kansas could bring some vital elements to the ticket: she’s a woman and as the leader of a mostly Republican state has shown she can work across party lines. But she is largely untested on the national stage.

* Ted Strickland, 66 – The governor of Ohio is another strong Clinton supporter who comes from a battleground state. A former U.S. congressman, the first-term governor is not well-known nationally.

* Jim Webb, 62 – The first-term Virginia senator, Vietnam veteran and former secretary of the Navy has written seven novels, including “Fields of Fire,” considered one of the best novels about the Vietnam War. Webb could help Obama in a state that has turned more Democratic in recent years.

If Obama asked John Edwards, I’m sure he would say yes. All politicians deny everything until they decide to come out announce: look at how long both Barack and HIllary denied that they were going to run for president.

It seems to me throughout history that every revolutionary individual such as Barack meets an untimely end. If he becomes president he will be a fantastic one I just worry that some slack jaw yokle will suceed in taking him out. The question is what will happen afterwards? I’ve always said that the US is on the road to self destruction through it’s history of war, discrimination, and persuit of capital at any cost. I hope my predicted future does not become a reality but when you read comments like those written by “southernvoice” it does make you worry and wonder about how all of this will end. Seems to me the US is at a cross roads and both roads lead to destruction.

Houston and Dallas are more diverse. White people in Houston are well trained and know not to look at you funny and most of them won’t grab their purse if a black man gets in an elevator. But, (and this could be completely tainted by my time in Austin, the practice of law, and the fact that I went to a public high school in River Oaks that now has a sushi bar) the Bush presidency has given people carte blanche to be overtly racist under the guise of being anti-affirmative action and abortion, and pro-war, oil, guns, death penalty. Just about everybody in charge is a Republican. And I know that to run for certain offices in Houston and succeed not only do you have to switch parties (and buy a Ford F-250 or Chevy Tahoe), but you have to sign an agreement affirming your anti-abortion pro-death penalty stance. It also doesn’t hurt to have a family member in the oil business.

Considering all I’ve said in the above posts it is important to stand up to the violence. No one should hold themselves back out of fear of what may come! We are living history right now the speeches we hear live will be put into history books for future generations to only imagine. If the worst does fall upon Barack I can fore see that “powder keg” exploding within the US. However look at Madela everything worked out for him and he became a leader of a nation at a way more racist time in South Africa then Barack is entering in the US. So there is hope we must stay positive, strong, and yes pray for the best.

Perfect description of Houston. Even inside Loop 610 – especially in River Oaks.

I shouldn’t hate on Austin if I’m going to be moving back soon but it was the only place where I saw (far too frequently) the bumper sticker with this slogan: “I believe in God, The Texas Longhorns, and President George W. Bush!”

My favorite part was the tenured law professor who openly argued the innate, intellectual inferiority of minorities. And sometimes, white women. Especially blacks. And how an auditorium full of students (people in your damned study group) would stand up and clap when this b.s. was said in front of t.v. cameras and whatnot.

@ leoninatl: We do have a D for a mayor but it doesn’t make much of a difference. Houston typically has Democratic mayors and Republican judges, DAs, state and congressional reps, and senators. It’s significantly more liberal inside the loop (610) and even inside the beltway (8), but when you get outside the beltway it’s like a cross between the Stepford Wives, Weeds and Nazi Germany (minus the enthusiasm of the rallies). Literally–there are faux wealthy families living above their means, middle class families that want to be as far away from blacks and Mexicans as possible, and poor families who probably think we’re still slaves. And as soon as black people move to one of the suburbs (e.g. Pearland) you will immediately hear WPs talking about the quality of schools and property values decreasing.

To bring my commentary full circle, I assume TX won’t be seeing much of Barack (or whoever he chooses as a running mate) now that primary season is over. I would love to see TX switch but I don’t have much hope.

Reason Clinton can’t be VP from CNN.com Jack Cafferty

“If Obama wants a hint what it will be like if she is the vice president, last night should give him a pretty good idea. Refusing to concede, she chose instead to try to steal the spotlight from him on one of the most historic nights in our history. Barely acknowledging his accomplishment, she went on in her speech at Baruch College like nothing had changed. It was pathetic.”

Michelle Obama will be a guest host on “The View” later this month

NEW YORK (AP)_ Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama, will be a guest host on “The View” on June 18. The popular ABC daytime talk show had invited her to be a guest this month, but she sent back word that she would like to co-host as presumptive
Republican nominee John McCain’s’ wife, Cindy McCain, did in April, said Bill Geddie, the show’s executive producer.

“Equal time – that’s hard to argue with,” he said Wednesday. Being a guest host will allow Michelle Obama to help interview guests and participate in the opening “hot topics,” or banter about what is in the news that day. It offers the chance for someone to show a more complete personality than just sitting for an interview and talking about themselves, Geddie said.

But seriously, here’s my $0.02. Is anyone else incredibly angry at the fact that people that are/were Hillary supporters have outwardly said that they would either choose not to vote at all in the general election, or vote for John McCain? Every single one of them that has said that, in my eyes, is a racist. Hillary and Barack as Democrats are FAR more similar in policy and beliefs than the super-conservative John McCain. Anytime someone says that, or I see it commented on CNN’s Political Ticker, or anywhere else, it just reminds me of just how far the US hasn’t come, even though we’ve come a looong way.

I drank a glass of wine, didn’t pour any out on the ground for her dead and stinking candidacy, giggled and wiped my tears of relief and happiness and then lit a candle for him.

I don’t honestly recall that I’ve ever hated someone I’ll never meet but I have deep and abiding hate for her now. To the point that if she dropped dead I would honestly pay money to dance on her grave. She had so many chances to pull up and act with grace and style but every time, she not only threw shit, she reveled in it.

That they ( I’m not even going to type or say their names if I don’t have to) not only engaged in behaviour that I would disown family for, but then not only refused any culpability or responsibility only serves to make my hate even more true. If they do any thing at all to cost Obama this election (and we all know that they will most certainly try to) I will actively wish and hope for them both to get cancer of piehole.

Wow, they made this whole last two months so incredibly, relentlessly, needlessly craptastic that they tainted last night for me. And you better believe Obama is angry but ain’t a white man alive that is capable of living and succeeding under the same conditions and expectations that any fucking black man does and still come out shining, gracious, and making you believe that he actually fucking believes more than half of what he says.

“It is our time.” Amen to that.

I agree with 95% of your analysis, but the South isn’t the sole home of racists. Only the loudest. After all, the top KKK population was in the state of Indiana and there was a substantial portion of Missouri under its sway for a while.

As Malcolm X said, and was quite right in saying so…”I like a southern racist better. At least he will call me ni**er to my face.” In the north, racism is covert and underground.

What Obama supporters are going to have to deal with now is not the historical racism of black versus white, but the legacy of the Great Society and the backlash against Affirmative Action.

White fear is potent and you saw it in West Virginia—poor whites afraid that Obama will institute a government that favors black faces only, institutes reparations for slavery, and resembles that famous scene of the uncouth Negro assembly in the film Birth of a Nation.

You know you can’t be pulling out the tracks unless you gonna pay to replace ’em, right?
That’s a good way to get a black woman to cut your ass, if you don’t.

Chris knows this, I’m sure. Where’s Creole?

You can dedicate Milli Vanili songs only in the event that you lipsync while you sing.

And I hope you were being sarcastic about the dream.

Little known medical fact: Chuck Norris invented the Caesarean section when he roundhouse-kicked his way out of his monther’s womb.

In Chuck Norris’ universe, “monther” is a word. So is “irregardless”. Chuck Norris invents and destroys language and grammar at will.

It’s about damn time. Hopefully he’ll be the next president. Also, I loved the fact that they gave each other a pound/dap. Loved it.

Nice banner.

“@ Dustin: that description of Austin leads me to believe that I first started referring to suburban white children as Hitler Youth during law school. I believe it was inspired by the applauding in the auditorium.”

HITLER YOUTH!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA that is funny as hell!

When I found out he clinched the nomination on Tuesday night I was speechless but completely overjoyed. I watched him and Michelle do the fist pound, watched his speech in amazement and then got up from my television thinking great is thy faithfulness Lord unto thee. Indeed I did have a moment where I had to pump my fist for the man I believe might just be our next president and so I turned on Dead Prez’s “RBG” and went straight to “Way of Life” because I knew it was nothing but that type of hardcore discipline that got him through. And after about twenty minutes of reveling in revolutionary but gangster-isms, I took it back to the source with Hezekiah Walker’s “Power Belongs to God.” Because I know and I know Obama knows that there is nothing to hard for God. He is a walking testimony. Get ready!

The dap heard ’round the world. Changed my life. Barack’s great and all but Michelle is my she-ro.

I’m pretty surprised that those foaming @ the mouth in regards to natural vs. relaxed hair are super quite about michelle. But then again — theyre were fulla shyt anyway : )

Um… if Michelle wore natural hair Barack probably wouldn’t have won the nomination. The people from Kentucky and West Virginia would say her natural hair only shows how much she hates America.
Every black woman knows that in order to make certain people feel comfortable you have to either fry your hair or wear it in a really short unthreatening afro.

^ That’s what most people were saying but the natural-nazis were saying that coming within an inch of a relaxer was tantamount to disowning ur race.

Hypocrites!

Anybody seen this site “Ex-Hillary Clinton Supporters for McCain” …..Just an example of the levels of ignorance the Obama supporters are up against. These people are supposedly willing to cut off their own noses to spite their face. Don’t even bother posting though because the author filters out any comments that he doesn’t agree with.

the Michelle Obama crucifixion is on it’s way as Maureen Dowd writes here http://www.spiegel.de/international/0,1518,558988,00.html

She’s going on ‘The View’ next week so Elisabeth Hassle-beck will have her fangs out

Fox refers to Michelle Obama as “baby mama” and their dap as “terrorist fist jab”

The best part of coming to this blog so late is, as a Hillary voter, this might have upset me at the time. But having written in Hillary during the general, I still feel absolutely proud of my choice, and get to smile wondering if your hubris has worn off a bit. Or perhaps Barack’s blackness is still compensation enough for his…performance. Or has your sbp kicked back in?

Barack’s performance:

-Prevented the next Great Depression
-Sent a surge of troops to Afghanistan, refocusing the war on terror where it belongs
-Slowed the 20 year storm of job losses to near level, with job creation expected to resume in February
-Put a bill that will ensure 31 million additional Americans through the House and Senate, where every other American President has failed
-With Hillary’s help, rebooted America’s relationship with key allies, particularly in NATO
-Did it in less than a year

As such, I am satisfied with Obama’s performance, and his blackness.

Oh, and one other thing: http://tinyurl.com/6k8rhx

Idiot.
