Let's see, today I think I will upset the stupid Black Americans, who somehow thought, the day POTUS Obama walked into the White House, the Nation of America would magically, deliciously change into this perfect America. How stupidly unrealistic could we be?
The following excerpts are from an interview with Dr. Cornel West in Playboy Magazine, titled....you ready..
Cornel West Reconsiders President ObamaA link to the entire interview is right here......
Now enjoy these 2 excerpts.........
Professor Cornel West confesses that he's having second thoughts about President Obama.
In an interview with Playboy, he said he wished the president were more "Martin Luther King-like."
So, Mr. West wishes our first Black American POTUS was more of a cheating, adulterer, who would fuck any female who approached him, thusly shaming his saint of a wife in the process.
Mr. West would trade a perfect example of a diplomat, such as POTUS Obama, for a man who was a peace activists, and who advocated peaceful protest, deal with the RepubliCANTS/teabaggers, who want America to go back to the times of slavery.
"and part of the struggle now in the age of Obama is how do we keep alive the legacy of Martin King?I know my dear brother, President Obama, has a bust of Martin King right there in the Oval Office, but the question is are is he going to be true to who that Martin Luther King, Jr., actually is? King was concerned about what? The poor. He was concerned about working people. He was concerned about quality jobs. He was concerned about quality housing. He was concerned about precious babies in Vietnam, the way we ought to be concerned about precious babies in Afghanistan and precious babies in Tel Aviv and precious babies in Gaza.Martin King was fundamentally committed to the least of these. Of course, he was a Christian soldier for justice from the 25th chapter of Matthew.
And so more and more black folk tend to be well-adjusted to Obama's presidency, but does that mean they're well-adjusted to injustice? Because we don't hear our president talking about the new Jim Crow, the prison-industrial complex.We don't hear our president talking about the need for high-quality jobs for everybody, giving it priority, not just giving a speech in Detroit. That's fine, but speaking to Tim Geithner, speaking to Larry Summers. When are you going to make jobs, jobs, jobs a priority rather than Wall Street, Wall Street, Wall Street a priority? That's what I'm concerned about."
What part of POTUS Obama's agenda is not about job's in America? When has the POTUS NOT been concerned about America's poor? At what point does what Wall Street Do NOT effect all America?
Martin Luther King was NOT the POTUS...he was a man concerned with civil rights and making America equal for Black Americans. POTUS Obama is a President of the American People...ALL of the American People, thusly POTUS Obama's agenda, his focus, his priority HAS to be ALL People. Not Just Black America, or Brown America, or Purple America....BUT ALL America! For this Black Professor, to criticize, and second guess POTUS Obama, for not being "Black Enough" makes me disgusted and sick. The entire article can be read here....
Here's some news for "Black America", of which I am a member......get your muthafuckin heads out of your asses. This POTUS is the first Black American to live in the White House as President. You morons have any idea exactly what that means? I'll be honored to explain it to you. Obama can NOT afford to divide this country by appearing to favor one section of America over another. Obama can NOT play favoritism in any form. He must walk a very fine line....he must be diplomatic, honest, forthright, savvy, intelligent, have the highest moral values, and he must have care/love and a genuine concern for ALL Americans, even those who pray for his death.
Take a look at his achievements & accomplishments, if you think Mr. West is correct in his "assessment" of POTUS Obama, by visiting the link below, then tell me you agree with Mr. West.
Democrats, Independents, & Progressives need to unite, stand shoulder to shoulder to defeat RepubliCANTS/teabaggers in the Mid Term Elections on "NO"vember 2nd, 2010. They need to do the same thing again on "NO"vember 6th, 2012. Now is NOT the time to be giving divisive interviews to Playboy magazine....get your "educated" asses to the polls on "NO"vember 2nd, and vote Democratic.
