As I rode the "Plane Train" at the "Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport" the other day something similarly fell into my lap. I had just spent about 30 minutes reading and photographing the brand new "Atlanta History" exhibit between concourses C & D. (Go see it). At the next stop I saw three people get on the train and the obvious reference popped into my head.
You tell me if I am wrong for making the linkage in my mind.

I RESPECT THE SIGHT OF A LOVING COUPLE AGREEING TO RAISE THEIR YOUNG SON TOGETHER, BRINGING HIM UP ALONG THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW.
I apologize for using them in a cheap satirical bit as they were simply minding their own business.
I have nothing personal against Barack Obama and my stomach DOES NOT knot up as I see his image.
For me I merely listen to the body of assumptions that he works off of which define the relationship between the people and the government and I note how like-minded people will NEVER accept that the lack of development of certain populations of people who are loyal to this theory is a direct consequence of their theories.
The MAJORITY of my angst is targeted at the CORRUPTION that is plainly evident within the "Black Racial Services Machine" as they have compromised themselves and their "Institutional Integrity" so that Obama (and other Progressive elected officials) can serve as the vessel of their ideological conquest without having to worry about suffering protests from those who need them to stand strong in the fight against their common enemy - the conservative.
They can't bring themselves to see that IF I CAN DETECT WHAT THEY ARE DOING then most certainly forces that are more powerful can observe their antics. Unlike THEM - at least I can see that our community SHOULD BE MORE DEVELOPED after all of these investments made. These other forces merely seek to use our community's grief to extend their agenda in the American political space.
They can't see that the AMERICAN MACHINE is STILL doing what they used to protest against. The only thing that has changed in their willingness to speak out about it. This is why the announcement of the 4th straight year of $1,200,0000,000 in deficits has gotten less press coverage than talk about the events seen on "Love & Hip Hop In Atlanta" on last Monday's episode.
