Damned if We do....Damned if We Don’t

General Colin Powell today endorsed Barack Obama. Now the GOP wingnuts, led by Rush Limbaugh are saying Powell did what he did in racial solidarity...In other words, like the rest of us stupid non thinking blacks, the General is voting for the black man because he is black.

“Secretary Powell says his endorsement is not about race... OK, fine. I am now researching his past endorsements to see if I can find all the inexperienced, very liberal, white candidates he has endorsed. I'll let you know what I come up with."-Limbaugh


Can’t get any more inexperienced or dumber than Dubya, except maybe the current GOP pick for VP. Another inexperienced white man with black support was John Fitzgerald Kennedy. But he was a supremely intelligent man, a quick study with cool.

We’ve voted for the white guy all of our lives. We’ve had a couple of chances with some real intelligence...Shirley Chisolm, for instance...but she didn’t stand a chance because she was black and female. And blacks didn’t vote for her either. Is it racial self hatred when we vote for the white guy?

How come it’s only racial when we support one of our own against the chosen great white hope? Ours is the better man, this time around. His skin color is not relevant except to those who can’t see past it...

We are not monolithic. Many of us share conservative values with our white counterparts. But when candidates for public office refuse to come to our neighborhoods, refuse to support even minor programs that might make our lives easier, always lay the blame at our feet no matter what... Or refuse to accept our common humanity without first filtering it through that bogus concept of white superiority, then we have a problem.

Who wants to be part of a group that refuses to recognize your equality. Everything about the GOP is exclusive, rather than inclusive when it comes to blacks and minorities. There are always one or two who are willing to join up and hang out with the oppressor, most are not, which is why most of us overwhelmingly vote democrat. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not happily democratic either. But it’s the best we’ve got right now.

In recent days, we’ve taken the blame for.... the current financial crisis..blamed on loans to minorities.....McCain labeling tax cuts for the middle class as welfare...Palin campaigning only in "pro American" cities where she tells the people it’s okay to vote for her because she looks like them....Michelle Bachmann calling everyone who disagrees with her extreme views as unpatriotic and anti American. Congresswoman Bachmann is Chair of the House Subcommittee, BWNB, (bitches with no brains). The last three people that I've mentioned campaign and live as if there are no black people in America.

The plain truth of the matter is that McCain/Palin is not good for America. Happily, it appears that everyone except that small, extreme right fringe group of extremists, that has taken over the Republican party, agrees that Obama should be the next president, so that we can get past this stupidity.

So would somebody please, please, pull the plug on the junkie, before he further embarasses himself.
