How has the world changed?

I’ve been struggling to capture my thoughts accurately. (Hell, most of my blog entries are created and short bursts while under fire from a house full of 6 and 9 year old distractions that make it almost impossible for me to eek out a cohesive paragraph at times.) I’m glad the election is over, I’m glad that the 2+ year campaign process is finally behind us. But if anything the campaign made it clear once and for all to America that the press and media are firmly, squarely and blatantly liberally biased. Gone are the days where reporters report the news. I’m old enough to remember when the news was reported, not editorialized, and there was an actual slot at the end of the broadcast for editorial opinions. Get this: you actually had to state that you were making an editorial statement. Now, it is almost impossible to find real news.
A nice example of this bias was MSNBC’s coverage of the inauguration. One of the street scenes started with a close up of a playing card, the two of diamonds, with George Bush on it. It was held up by a black man with a gleeful smile on his face. He was part of the same crowd that started singing and booing when the president was introduced during the ceremony. And I’ll bet you this same group covered by MSNBC was cheering and laughing when Reverend Lowery was making woefully inappropriate statements during the most historic of inaugurations: “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” WHAT???
Attention Reverend Clueless: White is why Obama is our president. The black vote didn’t do it my friend. Thank us cracka-azz honkeys for electing Barack Obama, because without the vote of people that drank the kool-ade and/or hated Bush so much, Barack would be back in Chicago working on his next socialist agenda item.
I would like to ask all of the punch-drunk Obama cult members supporters to help me understand one thing: How is your world better because we’ve elected a black president? Do you suddenly think that because you are black you get to go to the front of any line you see? Do you think that you will get whatever job you seek whether or not you are qualified? Do you think that you will no longer need to pay your bills, work for a living or pay for college? Tell me how our new president makes the world a better place.
I think the thing that irks me most is the baseless and racist taunting by blacks. it is similar to the attitude radical Mexicans display when talking about reclaiming parts of the southwest to create Aztlan. “We want what is ours, you can’t stop us whitey. You’ll get what’s comin’ to ya.” This is a quote from a person I heard on the radio a few years ago. Now, this same attitude is being displayed by blacks in the wake of Obama’s election. Don’t believe me? Check out any recent rap lyrics from some of the stars that performed last night. Many blacks are implying or blatantly saying that they run the place, they own the country. Although blacks are 12% and Hispanics are 15% of our population, you would think the numbers are much higher by watching television or listening to the radio. Hollywood and the entertainment world have done everything they can to promote alternative cultures in America at the expense of the majority population. And any attempt to promote white or European heritage apparently makes you a racist. Screw that.
This is a sick mindset. For years we have heard cries of racism, demands for equality. Dude, I think we are already there. Unless you have been fire-hosed or chased by a police dog because of your skin color, you’ve got nothing to complain about. I’ve been the victim of racism too, but I’m not suing anyone over it. I’m not settling for less because its easy to blame someone else for your own shortcomings. You get up and move on. No matter what race you are you have no excuse whatsoever not to succeed in America. But if you choose to follow the thug life, if you choose to make money by selling drugs or having babies, that’s not The Man holding you down; it’s your own damned ignorance. And just because Barack Obama is our president doesn’t mean that your life suddenly got better. You will still need to work if you want to succeed.
I certainly understand the historical significance of electing a black president (even if he is also half-white). In fact, it was a major no-no to mention race during the election, although Team Obama played the race card regularly during the campaign. Now, it’s all about the fact that Obama is black. Cue the chorus, part the clouds, let the sun shine in, America has a black president!!! Great. We also have black CEOs, black executives, black coaches, black media moguls, and black atheletes that are among the richest people in the free world. What does an Obama presidency change? Now that he’s in office can we officially ban the phrase “the first black _____” from the English language? It’s irrelevant. How can we consider ourselves equal if we continue to point out our differences? To quote President Obama, “Enough!”
