Black Power in America
What could possibly explain Barack Obama?
We all know the story of the unknown from Chicago with little experience appearing on the national stage briefly in 2004 at the Democrat convention. We all know the truth that a White person with the same dismal record regardless of gender, would not have made it out of the primaries, let alone elected President of the United States. We witnessed the multitudes of young Black men and women voting and many more Black people voting for the first time (and second time in November). We witnessed millions of Americans regardless of skin color, voting for Obama, understanding the “Change” in the 2008 “Hope and Change” meant change from a history of white male presidents and allow a Black man “for a change”. Fast forward and almost a month has past since Obama’s reelection during the worst economy since the Great Depression. Millions of Americans added to the the welfare state in one form or another. “Do for self” is now, Government do for me! Obama is the ONLY president that could have survived a first term without ANY accountability for anything that went wrong, and much went wrong as you and I lived it. Black Power?
Ambassador Rice is seriously being considered for Secretary of State in the mist of a foreign affairs scandal? Could black power the explanation? I do know that Black power was on full display in the media, when perfectly legitimate questions were asked of Rice concerning the obvious lies she told the American people concerning the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Afghanistan. U.S. Senators are now labeled as White U.S. Senators to make it known that because they are White they are illegitimate in the questioning of ANY Black Democrat, especially the Black U.N. Ambassador.
Certain words and phrases are now considered intimidating and threatening – Chicago, Food Stamps, others escape me. Any and all White Republicans are automatically suspect! Determined to be hate filled bigots and illegitimate in all areas of governing. Black republicans are even more illegitimate and down right disgusting – any derogatory name or label will do to discredit, intimidate and discourage them! Black Power has arrived.
THE MORE THINGS CHANGE, THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME.
