"You know what?  This is what I say to those who continually criticize my president!  Fock yall!  Haters!!!    Piss me off.  Cuz I know the real deal.  This black man has done something NO OTHER BLACK MAN HAS DONE.  That is play massa at his game. And won!  Hal. Lay, Lu. Yer.   Look over the shores my black friends.....not one black person have the kind of POWER  my president has at the moment.  See?  A lotta blackfolks still have that milky film over their eyes....thinking that the eradication of black folks STOPPED when Obama became president.  How naiive.  They missed the focking POINT!!!"

 

Thank you! Point is well taken. I have a good friend in NYC who constantly lambasts me because he believes I (like most black Americans he states) have given President Obama a free pass for "no other reason" than having black skin. This is wrong. I feel President Obama has made some missteps and there are areas where he should improve. I was watching Morning Joe a while ago and they were criticizing the president. But the criticism was not like the stale overwrought demonization that is standard at FOX news. It was honest and fair. They listed areas where he could do better but they never slammed the man face down into the concrete as someone like Sean Hannity (a psychotic hater!), Tavis Smiley, Bill O'Reilly or Cornell West. None of the caustic blather, gross exaggerations and nefarious spin of the aforementioned.

 

I read half way through this article before I stopped. I could easily shred the weak bombast and prevarication of the writer. Not going to waste the time doing so. Yes, there are areas of improvement Mr. Obama needs but I refuse to give any credence and support to the nonstop right (and left) wing trashing of this man. A lot is political but in my opinion, I would say no less than half of it is race based. The idea of a black man being POTUS is more than many white Americans can stomach...
