You're black, he's black, vote for him!Posted Friday, February 24, 2012, at 1:54 AM
I'm just an ordinary guy, living in an ordinary house in an ordinary town. I'm not prejudice and I don't discriminate. But, <~~~~ (here comes the but) I do keep my guard up.
Take for example: A black man, that I don't know, walks in my yard and up on my porch. I'll have my dogs ready and a .357 pointed through the peep hole. Some may call that racist but, I would do the same thing if it were a white guy that I didn't know. The problem I have is, if you do that to a black guy on your porch, you're a racist. If you do that to a white guy, you're just being cautious.
I am so sick of this double standard that I could puke! Just because I'm white doesn't make me a racist! Just because I fear for my safety, does NOT make me a racist! Just because I don't like Barrack Obama, DOES NOT make me a racist!
Have you ever met a person that you just don't like? Have you ever been across the room from someone that you knew you just couldn't stand? Before you even met the person, or before a word came out of their mouth, you knew you hated them? That's the way it is with me and the President. Not because I'm racist, but because I just. don't. like. the guy.
Regardless of his policies (which are aweful), regardless of his principles (which are aweful), I just don't like him and I won't be voting for him. It's as simple as that. The man could have never opened his mouth and I still wouldn't have liked him. Not because of his skin color, as a lot of you are thinking but, because of his arrogant little swagger! His whole "I'm going to do it my way and I DARE you to say something about it" attitude.
Now, back to what I read today:
Obviously he is our first black president. I read a report today saying that even if he were doing an aweful job (which he is), blacks would vote to re-elect him just because he is black. Isn't that racist?
This is from the blog of radio show host Tom Joyner, who has 8 million listeners : "Let's not even deal with the facts right now. Let's deal with just our blackness and pride -- and loyalty," Joyner wrote on his BlackAmericaWeb.com blog. "We have the chance to re-elect the first African-American president, and that's what we ought to be doing. And I'm not afraid or ashamed to say that as black people, we should do it because he's a black man."
Have you heard about this? OF COURSE NOT!!!
NOW, Could you imagine if Rush or Beck was saying this about a white candidate going up against a black candidate? The media would be all over him!!! BUT, if it's the other way around, you hear nothing!!
Can someone, anyone please tell me why that is?
This is the kind of stuff that would almost drive people to be racist! Or am I a racist for even bringing this up?!
