Toby Keith, Another White Expert On Black People

Expert On Black Language

Expert On Black Language





Well folks! We have another white expert on black people.


They have always been around since the beginning of time. 


However, since we now have a promising black presidential candidate, they seem to really be coming out of the woodwork with more knowledge and wisdom about our customs, traditions, attitudes, hopes, fears, dreams, aspirations, skills, shortcomings, assets, and histories, then we as black people do.


And now they even know how we are supposed to sound when we talk.


This time its linguistics expert/country western singer/ black cultural expert/old-fashioned racist, Toby Keith.


Before we go any further, let’s just give the expert the floor.


Also read the article about Toby’s Lynching Anthem, which he is now performing on national TV shows.


Now do you remember the statement that Barack Obama was almost crucified for by Hillary Clinton and her supporters during the primaries?


Let me refresh your memory.


You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, a lot of them — like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they’ve gone through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, and they cling to guns, or religion, or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment, or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

Well! This is what he was talking about when he made the statement.


And this is why the hell I did not see a need for an apology for telling the truth.


However, politicians, white or black, need to be politically correct.


He is talking about Toby Keith, (which is the rich version), and the thousands of poor Toby Keith’s that are still very much a part of American Culture, although you will hear many socially ignorant people, including some hypothetically intelligent right wing commentators make statements to the contrary.


So you see why black people still see racism?


It’s because it still does exists, and is a major factor in the current presidential election.


The only difference is, now we have closet racists, who are still racists, who are trying to cover their racism by saying that, “its just politics”. A lot of the things that Barack Obama has endured since he made a decision to run for the President of the United States, has not been just politics.  Some of it has been racism.


On the very few occasions when a black presidential candidate entered the race, and it appeared that he might be a serious contender, the candidate, (by the very nature of the racial climate in America), is attacked on 2 levels, instead of 1, like their white counter parts.


For a white presidential candidate, it is just politics.


However, for a black presidential candidate, especially Barack Obama who has done so well, he is treated much like the black female in this country.


She is black, (Strike 1). And she is a woman, (Strike 2)


Barack Obama is black, (Strike 1), and he is running for the most powerful position in the world: President of the United States of America, (Strike 2). So in addition to being attacked politically, he also has to deal with being attacked racially, 


Because of the Anglo Saxon nature of America, the white presidential candidate only has to deal with politics and his own personal demons. And the white woman has to deal with only the fact that she is a woman. Add a 4th dimension for the black candidate. 


And this statement by Toby Keith validates the fact that racism is a large part of this historical election.


Whenever a black man or woman attempts to achieve something that is considered off limits for a black man or woman to do, the culture of white hatred comes to the foreground.


Willie Mays suffered physical and emotional abuse from his teammates, the fans, and the teammates on the other teams


Althea Gibson was discriminated against by the tennis establishment,  because she was black, and because she was a woman.


The tennis establishment did not accept Arthur Ashe when he first decided to use his GOD given talents in the sport that he loved.



Hank Aaron received death threats as he moved closer to breaking Babe Ruth’s Homerun Record.


And remember how the tennis community viewed the Williams Sisters as too colorful for the game when they first came on the scene.


And of course, Tiger Woods received death threats when he became a world-class golf player at the club, and the club was adamantly opposed to his presence.


So, now we have Presumptive Presidential Elect, Barack Obama, running for the President of the United States of America, and there are those who are still clinging to the lie that their distaste for the man has nothing to do with his race.


Hey! The human evolutionary process does not work that fast. So don’t tell me that we as black people are just calling everyone who disagrees with Barack Obama racist.


No we are calling people racist, who we detect as being racist, and no one knows better who these people are, then the people who have had to live with this bull-shit all of their lives.


So Toby! How do black people talk?


Is BET the only cultural education that you have received on black people?


Well! Let me tell you, BET is not representative of all of the black people in America.


However, in order to validate your hatred and your ignorance, I am sure that you are comforted by the negative portrayal of black people that you see in the videos.


And because of your ignorance, you think that we are all ignorant too, and that we do not consider Barack Obama to be acting like a black person, because he can articulate his speech. He can speak in complete sentences. He has a very comprehensive vocabulary.

He can stay on topic, and oh yea! He is the democratic nominee for the President of the United States of America.


Just to let you know Toby, we have several different classes of people in the black race, as you do in the white race, everything from complete idiots and assholes, to geniuses like Barack Obama, and the majority of us are proud as hell of him, and give him our full cooperation, respect, and support. And we do this because, he is a very intelligent black man, and we recognize him as such. And, because we think that he is the best choice, of our very limited choices, for the country.


And one more thing Toby, do you know that you bear the name of a very famous slave?


You may want to go back and check your bloodline.


You just might be part brother- Brother!
