my president is black

and he keeps it real. "kanye is a jackass." period. point blank.

everybody knew that. just think on kanye's various and sundry shenanigans. he says whatever he feels when he feels it. his ego is the size of texas.

after his latest stunt at the VMA's, kanye has left no doubts. so why when obama said what we all been thinking, saying, tweeting, and blogging, it makes front page news?

racial man racial!

what obama said shouldn't have even seen the light of day. i'm no journalist but "off the record" should mean just that. you can't be tweeting bout what someone told you off the record, if you're a respectable journalist. it's like breaking the Hippocratic oath. breaching the attorney-client privilege. something you just don't do. so why did ABC News reporter Terry Moran spill the beans, on something so trivial (i.e. not of national significance) no less?

racial man racial!

it seems to me that some folks have a hard time swallowing the whole president = black thing. and they don't afford president obama the same amount of respect given to all other presidents. it's like there aint no president cause they don't recognize the black one that we have.

one former president knows the deal. "I think it's based on racism. There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president. Those kind of things are not just casual outcomes of a sincere debate on whether we should have a national program on health care. It's deeper than that."

jimmy carter thinks that joe wilson's outburst during obama's speech was part of a disturbing trend. and i agree. just look at the way wilson and his people responded to carter's claims of racism. "we respectifully disagree." oh how nice. carter gets a respectful disagreement and he aint been president since the 80's. the sitting president gets a "you lie." posters likening him to hitler abound. journalist put him on blast.

racial man racial!

what say you?
