Obama Might Get Murked: Bobby Kennedy Part I

TwitThis



I came to this conclusion while watching the film Bobby
over holiday's.
If you have been a long time reader, you
already know that I have long
contended that guns and
entrenched racism don't bode well for Black
Presidential candidates.

Watching the movie Bobby further confirmed this for me.

Back to Obama.

If I hear one more person say its not about race, I am going
to mail them a chit'in Popsicle
. Real talk.

But there’s no doubt that for one night, in one state, Americans
dramatically changed the subject. Race didn’t matter — even
though Mr. Obama was an African-American running in a nearly
all-white state — but talk of unity and common ground did,
as Mr. Obama galvanized his supporters by promising to
toss historical and political division aside.
It would be better stated if Kirk stated that
White Iowans voted for him INSPITE of him being Black,

I mean. The VERY fact that HE IS BLACK, makes his win
in Ohio meaningful and substantial.

If he were a white man, he would be just another white dude
that won in Iowa, Kirk.

I wonder whats going through Oprah's head right now.

Why do folks INSIST on saying its not about race
when it is all day?

"It's not about race.
It's not about race.
It's not about race"

lol. Of course it is.

And why can't we celebrate the issue, instead of it being the elephant in the room?

Back to the media tho, the advertisers created their new mantra:

If we repeatedly say it enough, it must be true.

O better have did a fist pump during Obama's Iowa speech. I could see it happening...

I feel you on him potentially getting murked, my friends and I discuss that frequently. That was even the topic during my last barbershop visit. It's on the mind of alot of people and may cost him as many votes as for people disagreeing with his politics.

People are saying that it's not about race, because they have no other reason not to vote for him.

If there is one thing America is it’s delusional. When that affliction is juxtaposed with a nation that is devoid of honest introspection, inane utterances by pundits and common folk are sure to abound.

Okay…some while liberals decided to vote for a Black Candidate in a 90% plus Caucasian state over a heiress to the throne who is self mutilating her own campaign and another presidential like contender that the media avoids like a leper.

And?

I have no doubt that he can win the nomination, but if he does when the General election starts and the real America comes out he has no chance.

I’m tired of people talking about if he will get assassinated or not, and if we would riot
(Since we didn’t for Katrina I don’t think we would for this..and I’m not on that for another moderate democrat with a unusually high profile. Sadly such a event would bring him immensely closer to Black America than he is now, and re enforce Black Cynicism

Tired of people buying once again into false American ideals and hope..


Saying its not about race makes people feel better …

Our citizens operate in a zero sum logic

White People voted for Obama = things are good

If Black People acted like Obama they would be fine…

And a host of other fallacies

How about this….I’ve never heard a greater living orator in my life, or one that conveys such sincerity. How about if he was white..he would prolly win easily ….

I dunno this whole thing agitates me…
