Will race protest be curtains for Obama?

If Al Sharpton has his way, it’s the end of Obama.
 
The policemen in New York City were let off for pumping fifty bullets into an unarmed black man, a young bridegroom on the eve of his wedding. Racism is alive and well at the NYPD, and an angry protest by Americans of Color, calling for recognition of racism and reform of the New York police department, will amplify the issue further.

Meanwhile in Pleasantville USA, the suggestion had been ceremoniously posited to the American television audience, and spun without a ripple of discord, that in one eloquent moment last March, Barack Obama transcended the color barrier and dispatched racism to the circular file of American folklore. What a glorious feeling it was, to imagine our nation ready for a smart man in the presidency, regardless his color, but someone forgot to read the memo at the NYPD.

If the black community in NYC gets up in arms about the recent verdict, and does object to policemen, even black ones, being permitted to gun down innocents who fit suspicious profiles, ie. are black –if there is a indeed still a racial divide– what then happens to the colorblind society tapped to elect Obama in November?

If racial tensions build in NYC, Obama is not going to be half white enough.

I’ll vote for a black man, so will you, so will every Democrat on our horizon, but can you speak for the Hoosiers and hillbillies beyond? They have the vote too. Cops have the vote. NASCAR fans and Christian bigots and Rush viewers have the vote too. Lets also throw in Fox viewers, and the CNN misinformed, and everyone who is going to be barraged with the already uninterrupted glowing tributes of maverick, heroic, white man father-knows-best Hi-Ho-Silver McCain.

The worst thing the media could muster about McCain, as an equal time aside, while it was percolating the Obama mystique, was that McCain was too old. They joked about it dismissively, as if McCain had not a black man’s chance in Mayberry. McCain has gotten no younger, but the media will call it a comeback, and we can add that to their new-leaf effusive attaboy of McCain.

    Eric, actually, I will not vote for this Black man. I will not vote for the woman either. The undemocratic process has already taken my vote away, shredded it up into a chad, and tossed it into the waste can.

    ‘And, Tony, what if the Republican was to win as a result of your irresponsible behavior?’

    My reply is,

    ‘And what if he was not to win? Have you solved anything? You have not. If anything, you have actually been taken a step backward. You must do much more than just vote another Democrat back into the presidency to even begin to start doing what needs to be done in this country. You have been piddling around instead.’

    Tony- I’m not going to vote for Obama either. Of course. I meant: I would vote for A black man, and so Tony would you. But certainly not for this corporate oligarch shill. Let’s vote for a black woman.

    Cynthia McKinney: U.S. Exports Election Theft Tricks to Mexico

    I hope Cynthia is able to become their candidate, and I would vote for her if they did. Still, this party just is hard to take too seriously anywhere in the world. They are way too easily co-opted, and are almost everywhere nothing more than an electorialist movement, when so much more is actually needed.

    Tony, you and Eric should vote. Sorry your person is not running but you should really vote for whom you feel is close. To not vote is to do what happen in Germany. Hitler was voted in because “boo-hoo my person is not running so I will not vote”. We do not want that to happen, huh? Do not vote for color or gender but for the person you feel will come closest to what you want. Keep in mind we all are human, fail but get up & go on. Being a republican, Mccan is the man.

    Yo Misa,
    Sorry you have hate. One wonders what type of system you love. But please do vote. Hitler was voted in because good folks would not vote. Your one vote could prevent a hitler from coming in.
    George
