Who Thought The Cartoon Was Just A Cartoon?

Racism Is Not Dead

Racism Is Not Dead

 

 

 

 

 

 

In spite of all of the progress that we have made as a nation, there are still a significant number of racists who think that the whole world is 1800’s south. This point of view is based on the success, comfort, and progress of a few ignorant people, who thank GOD, is now a minority.

 

And they miss this world so much that they will say or do anything to get back to it.

 

It is not, nor will it ever be back, unless we experience a run on stupid black people who think that these types of insults and attacks on the character of our First African American President, and the people of all races who support the change that he is attempting to bring to this country, is not leading up to something more then just posting a funny cartoon.

 

There is more to it then just a cartoon or a joke.

 

Did you hear the one about the new black guy in town?

 

A black man arrives in a new town and asks a white man,” where do all of the black people hang out round here?”

 

The white man says, “right over there on that tree.”

 

Just a joke?

 

Ha Ha My Ass!

 

Millions of black human beings were subjected to this cruel and mercilessness death simply because some people had a beef with them for the way that GOD made them.

 

So to all the ignorant, sleep, uninformed, and socially unwire black people, (and white people), who think that this is just a cartoon, let me just tell you, that somewhere, right now, there is more the one sick racist individual who has taken that cartoon, (which depicted a black monkey being shot to death), a monkey that no doubt represents President Obama, and he or she has internalized this cartoon, and has at least a thought, about doing something stupid to the president, and if he or she thinks about it long enough, this thought will blossom into a plan of action.

 

And to the many white racists who helped this issue sell out by purchasing as many copies as they could, because they think that it is just a funny cartoon; fine!

 

Your opinions, thoughts, and actions in support of this racist attack masked in humor, will never be enough to destroy the progress of a nation.

 

These are the kinds of subliminal messages that the media in this country have used for hundreds of years to control the masses.

 

This cartoon in no exception.

 

One thing I do agree with is “Freedom of Speech”, so they do have a right to post it, and we do have a right to respond to it, like the majority of the common sense people in this country, (of all races) has done.

 

I think that we needed to respond to this message of hate as we did.

 

But I also still maintain that the way that a few racist in high and low places treat us, is not nearly as important as how we as African Americans treat each other.

 

So to all who are still sleep, and continue to poison our neighborhoods, kill our sisters and brothers, (or anyone who is not a threat to you in any way), disrespect our woman, and neglect our children, you need to be more concerned about that.

 

Because this will be the true measure of our success or failure as a race of people, not what a few idiotic racist, who will always exists, say or think of us.

 

It is time for all African Americans, and other races of people who want peace, freedom and equality for the generations to come, to remain alert if you are already alert, or to work hard to become alert if you are not.

 

Do not let this minority of idiots pull the wool over your eyes, even if they do try to disguise it as a joke.

 

The old folks used to always say that “many true words are spoken in a joke”’ everyone needs to pay attention.

3 Reasons Why Obama Has Done So Well

March 5, 2008
I must give the candidate credit first for being an african american presidential candidate that carries himself in such a way as to be taken seriously.

With the exception of Martin Luther King JR, (who was removed by those who did not want to see him become president), there really has not been many african american candidates that were viewed by white america specifically, or black america in general, as viable candidates.

Of course, Colin Powell fits into this catagory as well. He was an excellent soldier, so excellent a soldier, that he became a general. So that would mean that he would definitely have to have a strong stomach to advance that far in the business of war.

However, after spending so much time with George W. Bush, he could no longer stomach the business of politics, so that took him out of the race by personal choice. And, at the rate that the members of the Bush’s Cabinet have been cutting and running before criminal prosecution; I think that he made a wise decision. The 2nd reason is that he exhibits a sense of newness that many voung voters, both black and white, (who are still optimistic about the polictical process), really like.

Finally, I think that black america has raised it’s conciousness to a new level. A level of being able to visualize an effective black president in the white house.

During my youth, having a black president, or even considering it, was unheard of.

It was considered to be a social evil that would cause the end of the world by blacks as well as by whites.

Sadly, many black americans had been trained by white america to think this way.

Remember, it really has not been that long ago, when it was illegal for black americans to enter into a restaurant to eat, use the same public restrooms as whites, set in the front seats of a bus, take a swim in a public swimming pool, or for that matter, vote.

Although most younger people associate these types of behavours with the deep south-I am here to tell you that I was born in the late 50’s, and raised in the early 60’s in Baltimore City; and I can still remember the signs saying “White Only”, “No Coloreds”, “White Trade Only”.

I also remember when black people had to go in the alley of the S&H Deli right in the heart of Fells Point, in order to have their food handed out the back door to them like an animal, (not like a person).

So through the process of negative socialization, which was the norm for america at that time, (rather those who did not live through it want to admit it or not), it would be impossible for any black man to become president.
“It’s just not in their DNA”, So it was said.

I can tell you from experience, that being white is not an immediate determination of success in the “White House”. Just look around now, and then reflect upon the pass.

I said all of that to say this: These are the reaons why I think that Barack Obama has done so well during this election year.

One more thing.

No matter who becomes the next president of the Untied States, male or female, black or white; please compare their performance after gettiing the job, to their campaign speechs, and make notes, compare the 2, and then call them out on their lies and shortcomings.

The reason that the government is the way that it is, and the way that it has been for so many years is because, the american public continues to fall for the same old bull-shit, time and time again.

If there is going to be truth in government, then it is up to the citizens to hold their elected officials accountable for what is said, and what is done.
