How has the world changed?

Posted by cann0nba11 on January 21, 2009

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!”

  1. Dear Sir,

    I have been thinking about the replys that you emailed me and I have decided to respond. I think that there are some things may need to be cleared up on my part. First off, I feel the need to apologize to you for judging you simply based on your political views and not as a man. That is exactly the type of thing that I hate when people do to me. Judging a person based on their opinions or race or appearance or possibly even their religion, instead of trying to get to know them as a person and giving them the respect that we should have for each other as human beings. After reading your blog, I admit that I was emotional and hasty in my choice of words. What seemed like a clever, snide little stab at a person I felt was in need of a “chin check” backfired and actually made me seem like an ignorant asshole. Although I DO NOT agree with some of the views expressed in your blog, and surely I am entitled to leave you a comment that states such, the way that I did so was inappropriate and “not a good look” on my part. With that said, I would also like to thank you for checking out my music and saying that we have “nice grooves”. Also I am glad to hear that you have experienced Hip-Hop culture first hand, as you stated in your email that you were into rapping and breakdancing years ago. That actually made me realize that maybe you weren’t the person I judged you as. Just to give you some information about me, I am not a “lost little boy-ee”. I am a 27 year old man with two kids and a wife and a recording studio that I own and operate and a passion for many types of music. I am also a successful licensed barber. I came from poverty. I have never even lived in an actual HOUSE(govt. housing is apt. buildings here in TN), but I am working daily towards that goal. I love and support my children in every way possible because I know what it feels like to grow up with only one parent (no I do not know my father). Last but not least, yes I am a Barack Obama supporter to the fullest. We could argue back and forth forever about politics and I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t agree on much. I am also pretty sure that your knowledge of that subject may be far greater than mine, so I am going to skip the debate and say that I wish you the best and I hope that this excessively long paragraph gives you a clearer image of me and my whole “Obama Generation”. After all, we were created by the “Reagan Era” and raised by the “Bush Crime Family”. What do you expect us to do, grow up to be Politicians?.

    Peace,
    Cannon

    Cannon,

    I am impressed and thankful for your response Cannon. We all fly off the handle at times and I am very serious when I say that I appreciate your words, and your willingness to email me back and clear the air. It’s a big world full of lots of people out there with different views. Thankfully you and I live in the greatest country on the planet and have the privelige to speak/sing/rap our minds without fear of prison or death.

    I wish you the best in your career and that you take the best possible care of your family. The fact that you have a job AND a studio tells me that you are a hard working man. Keep doing that and you will attain greatness, as you define it.

    Peace!
