I'm ok with the whole Obamarama fare, and i thought his acceptance speech was very good... but...
Come on. As soon as 11pm eastern ticked the dial all the news hosts were all set to talk to a few of there token pundits to talk about what the election meant for them... about how they deserved it... about how this whole election is more special to black people than anyone else... about how this will "change" things for black poeple... about how this won't be a "joe the plummer" society anymore, and will instead be a "Horhay the illegal immigrant collecting welfare" type of nation... about how by 2040 the people who founded the nation will be overtaken by immigrants... about how "historic" the night is...
Jesus. Shut the fuck up. Black people who choose to make it CAN. They aren't retarded and they don't need some kinda special 'help tha nigga" welfare program. Having a black president won't solve their problems. If a teenagers baby's daddy doesn't hang around to be part of the family, then your going to have a problem there... if the pimps and hoes can't get it together and use some safe sex, there are going to be problems there. Pretending that your typical run-of-the-mill politician is going to be able to solve anything is just rediculous. People change things, not politicians.
Obama may be better than other choices, but he isn't the messiah. And everyone shouldn't revere him so much. In the end we've build him up to a "kenedy"status. There is no way he is going to be able to meet the nations expectations of him, and ultimately he has very little to do with what actually happens in congress. That will be up to congress, maybe he'll sign a bill or two.
It makes me sick about how people are so proud of themselves over Obama's election. You didn't do anything. You were bought. Every campain speech, debate, and commercial was one big marketing ploy to own you. You bought it and voted... whoopty doo. It's not a chore anyway, its a privelege. Don't be so proud of yourself for deciding that after 10 years of being apathetic to the concerns of the nation you finally decided to get off your ass and "vote for change".
You had a shot four years ago and completely blew it. The difference between four years ago and today is that Obama was a better sales man, you had nothing to do with it. The pride that people have for this election is completely rediculous.
The news channels had better start talking about what this means for the majority of americans, that is, white Americans. Not because we are more important, but because there are a lot of white americans who just don't believe in Obama's dreams and can't stand the taste of the self-important arrogant pride of those people who were bought by the Obama campaign. I don't think it's wise news outlets (CNN) to say that people like Joe The plummer don't matter anymore, that the working white class doesn't matter anymore. I'm sure all these well educated liberal tv personalities may think they are being proper, but this kind of talk will only breed hate.
Now lets get on that Obamarama bus! Guess who will wind up sitting in the back!
Be proud america! Be proud of what you have done and what we have accomplished! God bless us and god bless the new America...
