This is the first column that I have written that didn’t have a music slant to it but this election on November 6, 2012 will shape America for the next 50 years and I had to say something.
I love President Obama and it is not because he is black. Funny thing about Obama being black is that most African Americans had to downplay this fact about him during his first campaign. We had to listen to his platform, understand his strategy, and learn his schematic for the future of America so that we could speak intelligently and answer the question you knew you were going to be asked, ”Are You Voting For Obama Because He is Black?”
What really boils my black britches is the fact that his detractors are quick to point out how Obama is a socialist only caring about redistributing the wealth to those who need it and wanting to provide health care for those who aren’t able to afford it. They call his health care initiative, “OBAMACARE”. Guess what… HE DOES!
ARE YOU F’NN KIDDING ME? THOSE ARE OBAMA’S FAULTS?
Today is election day and we have to choose between the guy who would sell you a car with no engine and blame you for not doing the research in finding out that the car had no engine, and the guy who wants to help you build up your credit and qualify for the same car that he drives.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
I don’t ever want to use the racism card because it took many brave white souls during slavery and the civil rights movement to get African Americans a fair shot in the court rooms, the schools, and passing other legislation including the voting rights act.
To even imagine that the race is close makes you think what is really going on. It is the far right Republican wagon that is realizing that this is the last chance. Guess what people demographically it is over for those who don’t get along with Non White, Non Straight and Non Woman’s Rights. The tide has turned. The old guard will be the minority in 2015. And if you haven’t taken a look around, that is Nicki Minaj hosting American Idol. That is Cee-Lo Green hosting the Voice. That is Mario Lopez hosting everything else. Ellen has the number one talk show on Television, Arsenio Hall is coming back, Serena Williams is the best Tennis Player in the world and Justin Bieber has Big Sean on his CD and was in a BET CYPHER.
THAT IS THE WORLD TELLING YOU THAT THE MELTING POT IS HERE FOR REAL FOR REAL AND THE SAME OLD HOMOGINIZED MILK IS SPOILED…
It also says that this Presidential race is going to be a blow out. Don’t let the media fool you. You heard it hear first. Obama is going to beat Romney like he stole something.
What I really don’t understand is for every racist person who is hating on Obama because he is half black shouldn’t that same racist also acknowledge that he is half white and is also providing the same health care, middle class tax breaks, and food stamps to the white parts of the United States.
I hate to break this to some of you racists but the largest group of SNAP (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as food stamps) beneficiaries is by far non-Hispanic. So when you talk about OBAMA providing more food stamp assistance than any other President it is to the Non-Black half of his people.
Oh interesting fact the number of Food Stamp recipients rose by a cumulative 63% during Bush’s eight year Presidency.
I didn’t make this up. That was in the New York Times and authored by Charles Blow.
BUT before I go any further I would like to state this for the record.
NOT ALL REPUBLICANS ARE BAD.
I VOTED EARLY AND ONE OF THE PEOPLE I VOTED FOR WAS A REPUBLICAN RUNNING FOR STATES ATTORNEY IN ONE OF OUR LOCAL RACES NAMED MIKE NERHEIM.
FYI Mike Nerheim is running for Lake County States Attorney and is a good man. He is running a solid campaign and will make a great States Attorney. I also helped promote for Rita Mayfield who is running for the 60th District States Representative. Rita is another great individual who is a rising star and you will hear the names of both of these individuals in the near future.
If you don’t vote then you need to shut up period. I don’t want to hear people on November 7th complaining that their candidates didn’t win. Gotta get in it to win it.
Good Night, Good Luck, and GOBAMA!
I can’t wait to see Obama in Grant Park like we are watching another Bulls Championship. Jay-Z, Kanye, Common et al better start getting ready to have the party of the year on November 6 baby. I am dusting off the turntables. I have to DJ that joint.
My name is DJ FINK and I approved this blog.
