Obama presidency begins on racist note

Go figure. The man doesn’t mind killing babies–what more is a little bigotry thrown in the mix?

Somebody might want to tell Rev. Joseph Lowery to wake up and smell the coffee. No one has “told blacks to get in back” for about, oh, I don’t know, about 40 years now. And besides, you racist bigot, most whites have embraced what is right!

Did this guy not realize they were swearing in an African-American to be president?

“We ask Yo to help us pray for that day when brown would stick around,
yellow would be mellow, the red man would get ahead, man, and
the white would embrace what is right.”

The cheering crowd and the broad smile plastered on the face of Messiah Osama says it all: these are the people who are REALLY living in the past and who the REAL racists are.

  1. I was unfairly criticized, by a commenter on my blog, for trying to interject race into this presidency. But racism is NOT a problem I have. It has been and still is Obama’s problem. What did he learn from his association with Jeremiah Wright? Apparently, not much. And here again in view of the entire world, he demonstrates his association with another blatant racist.

    In spite of the fact that liberals say they want racism in America to be over, they really don’t. Most of us have been over it for decades. But they need to hang on to it. Liberalism thrives on racism.

    Obama has been called the post-racism president. This video clip of Barry’s racist, white-hating preacher friend (whom he invited to deliver the closing prayer of inauguration day) proves that they will never let it end.

    This is is one of the most disgusting, irreverent, and disrespectful prayers I have heard.

    In lieu of the melodramatic, pretentious display of this year’s presidential inauguration and its news coverage, I wish to respond to a subtle, yet blatant hypocrisy that continues to gnaw at the foundation of equality and unity which Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and many others worked to achieve. King looked toward the day when a man wouldn’t be judged by the color of his skin, but by the “content of his character.” President Obama expressed these sentiments of overcoming racial barriers in his inaugural address: “They [men and women who labored, fought, and died for the U.S.] saw America as bigger than the sum of our individual ambitions; greater than all the differences of birth or wealth or faction. . . . We cannot help but believe that the old hatreds [racism] shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve.” I wish to confront the fact that Mr. Obama would endorse such noble and just ideals while at the same time, allowing the Reverend Lowery to say what he did in his benediction: “We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around . . . when yellow will be mellow . . . when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right.” Isn’t this hypocritical? While President Obama desires prejudices to fade away, Rev. Lowery emphasizes and separates people by color and race. This statement highly stereotypes mankind according to pigmentation rather than judging individuals by their character as Dr. King preached. It implies that all men of color other than white are still discriminated against by just about everyone, and all white men are not doing what is right. There is blindness to everything except skin color. It is an assertion founded on false absolutes.
    It is quite true that white racists remain in the United States to this day, but these people appear to not be the only myopic citizens focused on color. Certainly not all, but numerous inhabitants of this land who indulged in the superfluity and near demagoguery of the recent inauguration were being blinded by color. There wouldn’t have been near the celebration for a white president. For the United States to escape an era of racial prejudice, blacks, whites, and all minorities must see beyond physical barriers and fill schisms. False accusations and reverse racism will only prolong our struggle. Every race is truly the same flesh (despite pigment) and blood. A man or woman should be judged by their morals, ethics, character, and the resulting actions of these. A person should not be celebrated based on words alone, but by actions reinforcing those promises. Let us admire or admonish a politician at the end of his or her period of service (hindsight is 20/20). Only then can we, taking all things into consideration, justly pass judgment on their actions and true character.
