Progressive Black Leader, President Obama proves to be a conundrum in the often vicious interplay of race and politics. Remove the issue of his race and the attacked received by "Obama the President Of The United States" remains in the realm of bland partisan sniping against any dirt that the present occupant in the White House should expect as part of the job.
Add the dynamic of RACE and it gets interesting. Malcolm X is shaking his head for we did not listen to him.
- The White opposition against the Black politician at hand is going to make use of racial innuendo as much as he can - reading between the lines but surely not crossing the line and going into the space that Black people were confined to 60 years ago - despite the protestations that we are indeed there today.
- The White supporters of the Black politician is likely to play up the "racial insult" that his "skin brother" has waged against the Black in question. The very words or thoughts that are prefixed with "I would never say this in public about Black folks.....BUT......." are now cause for feigned offense for ideological and political advantage
- In the case of Obama - we have the Black Establishment who is running a protection racket on behalf of President Obama. Per the value system that they show based on their actions - their know that "RACIAL DEFENSIVENESS" is the most tried and true means of provoking their primary agenda item: BLACK IDEOLOGICAL UNITY.
- They successfully get Black people to focus on EXTERNAL threats rather than asking questions as to why more of the promises that they had made previously regarding the benefit to our community IF we vote accordingly have not been delivered
Why I Reject The Claims Of ORGANIC Racism In The "Obama Monkey" Or "Obama Birth Certificate" Distractions
This cartoon appeared in the NY Post - owned by "News Corp", owner of Fox News.
To those who don't life Fox News this was further proof of their racist agenda. It was also a means of getting out the protesters in front of News Corp. These protests - at the time when the 'Hope' was still virgin in Black America was a shot across the bow against "White Racists" - warning them to not mention anything about monkeys and Black people. (Of course - unless the subject is a "Free Range Black).
Let's consider the process that I observed that people are demanding with regards to material that MIGHT be seen as "racially insensitive" as it relates to President Obama.
The truth is that the very same people who cry RACISM if an when any of the adversaries of the President Of The United States find some dirt to slap upon THIS president - racially tinged or not - are the very same people who was silent when previous presidents (and other present politicians) were hit with the same type of streaming attacks - all done to undercut the credibility of the said president.
I need nothing more to show exactly what this charade is.
But lets continue.
What Is Black America Talking About Besides "Birth Certificates" & "Monkey Pictures"?
Please Pick The Top 4 PRIORITIES that the Black Community SHOULD BE talking about as represented by the documents below?

More Marriage Certificates Between Black Men & Women WITHIN The Black Community
More Graduation Diplomas WITHIN The Black Community
More Black Communities Being Certified As "Safe Communities"
More Evidence Of Healthy People WITHIN The Black Community
Until you get the PRIORITIES right - those who play on your racial fears are always going to have an ample number of "Vulnerable People" to work with because they failed to build up ORGANIC COMPETENCIES that would allow them to fend for themselves.
