Just Because He's Black (author unknown):



A WHITE MAN asked his BLACK FRIEND " Are you going to vote for Barack Obama just because he's black?" The Black man responded by saying, "Why not? Hell in this country men are pulled over everyday just because they are black; passed over for promotions just because they are black; considered to be criminals just because they are black. Thousands of white voters won't be voting for him just because he is black! However you don't seem to have a problem with any of that!

 

This country was built with the sweat and tears of black slaves; and now a black man has a chance to lead the same country, where we weren't even considered people, where we weren't allowed to be educated, drink from the same fountains, eat in the same Restaurants, or even vote.

 

So yes I am going to vote for him! But it's not just because he's black, but because through his leadership several of Americas most elusive enemies were brought to justice; our economy, health and environment improved; and our good reputation around the world has been RESTORED! He is HOPE! He is CHANGE! He is WISE! He is a man of INTEGRITY and INTELLIGENCE! He is a man of FAITH and PERSEVERANCE! A man of MATURITY and GOOD JUDGEMENT! He is a FAITHFUL HUSBAND and FATHER! And he now allows me to understand when my grandchildren say they want to be President when they grow up, it is not a fairy tale but a short term goal! They now SEE, UNDERSTAND, and KNOW that THEY CAN ACHIEVE, WITHSTAND, and DO ANYTHING that THEY Can DREAM for Themselves!! So No, I am Not Voting for Him because He is Black...I Am Voting For Him Because I AM BLACK!!!!

And you know .... although during his first candidacy I opposed the idea of voting for the President "just because he was Black" .... over the past four years (and in no small part due to the advocacy of Ms. Koco's unwavering and enthusiastic support! ) .... I've come to change my stance on that!!! 

 

For all those people (especially the youngun's) who really DID vote for the President the first time "just because he was Black" ..... I've come to believe that it wasn't a bad thing at all!!  Or at the very least .... it was a good enough reason, as a Black person, to simply SUPPORT another Black person, who is a good influence, a good role model, and a great humanitarian!!  

  This is one of the reasons why I ADMIRE you so much my sista....cuz you have the integrity to admit when you have changed your position on something you were passionate about and learn something from it.  I tip my hat to your "unwavering" dignity as a "black" person.   Cuz that's all it has been for me.  To see someone who look like me or look like one of my sons taking charge of our nation.  It gave me proof and visual evidence to the hoodrat hoodlums I teach that you can BE whatever YOU dream....and when it comes it can exceed your imagination  and highest expectation i.e. better than YOU ever thought possible.  It is important to ME to give our children "light" and to let them KNOW they ARE NOT the historical stereotype of slavery (massa was a monster).  It is why I ignore the black naysayers who occasionally lift the head in view and spew negativity, is why I fight tooth and nail for the underdog...cuz it is the underdog who will achieve the highest and most profound.  Why?  Cuz of the passion to prove to oneself....I AM JUST AS WORTHY. 

 

I have always BELIEVED in my people-don't like some of their behavior patterns...although I do understand why some of us are the way we are....but!  That doesn't EVER change our brillance.  No matter how long one crawls on his/her belly while trying to regain strength to stand up...while being humilated and disappoint by one's own kind....it is important to me to let our blackfolks KNOW...yes you do matter!  You are important!  And have that same ability to tell our own negative force i.e. our black sabbotagers your vote don't count in my LIFE!!! Cuz they really NEED to hear that so that they can refocus and revisit on why they hate so much with their own as they look in the mirror at the own discretions.  

 

My president has always represented hope and change to me.  Cuz I saw the evolution emerge from our legacy to that "sacred" day when he walked on stage as President of the United States of America.  I cried for my dead son who will NEVER see it for himself but can view it from above.  I cried for my existing children as evidence of what we can do when we put our minds to it.  So for  you to say that you now understand the importance of supporting another black person merely for purpose of the good influence it brings to our people, good role modeling for our children/and young adults and the positive enthuasiasm that he not only brings to our culture....but!  What he brings to the world was absolutely HUGE for me.   Thank you my sista!
