Racism In America Still Alive

Please visit my store to purchase your own “Don’t Blame Me, I Voted For Capitalism” bumper sticker!

The black community once again gets a free pass to make decisions based on the color of skin and the liberal media once again turns and looks the other way. I read a quote this morning that sums up exactly what happened last night:

“When a small man casts a large shadow, it means the sun is setting.”

Goodbye capitalism. Hello nanny state.

As someone who works in a small business and consults in a second small business, I can tell you exactly what’s going to happen. We’re going to baton down the hatches and lay off anyone we can possibly live without. In other words, we’ll be laying off the very people who wanted this change in the first place – those who lack education and ambition.

So if you work a low-level hourly job and you voted for Obama, please pray tell – what were you thinking? Were you voting for “something historic” or were you voting on Obama’s actual plans?

    I’m going to confess right here and right now that my first reaction to Obama winning the Democratic nomination was “America is just not ready for a black president!” I don’t *think* that makes me racist; at least I sure as hell hope not. Oh, and I’ve been through TWO job downsizings in the past three years … next time I’m coming to live with you!

    What we’ve experienced is not truly racism per se. The dictionary definition of racism is:

    Racism: a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

    It is my opinion that most black people don’t feel “superior” as much as slighted and marginalized due to:

    prejudice :unreasonable feelings, opinions, or attitudes, esp. of a hostile nature, regarding a racial, religious, or national group.

    Therefore the feeling is that here is an opportunity for an educated “black man” to have a chance to lead the country. You also have to look at the fact that many people just do not believe in the economic theories of conservativism. These are the same people who claim that FDR’s New Deal was what “solved” the Great Depression (no, it was WWII dummy). Anyway, if America had elected Dave Chappelle as president that would’ve been blatant “racism” America (approximately 48 million non-blacks)voted for Mr. Obama for these top 7 reasons (in my humble opinion):

    1) Change (even if it’s not real change and it may not even be positive change but its the perception of change and perception is reality)

    2) Backlash against the ineptitude of the Republican party (conservatives hated Bush almost as much as liberals, but for far different reasons. He didn’t just wander away from conservative principles he ran like his pants were on fire)
    3) Lack of a coherent, cohesive, cogent race from McCain (McCain ran like it was 1992, Obama ran like it was 2012)
    4) Selfishness (People want to do what they want to do, and Republicans have been the party of can’t. Can’t have gay marriage, can’t have abortions, can’t have sex, drugs or “good times.”)
    5) Barack is pretty and sounds good (after 8 years of Bush-isms the captain of just about any ivy-league forensics team could’ve won, Americans like their presidents young and silver-tongued. see B.Clinton, J.Kennedy, William Taft… scratch that last one)
    6) Its the economy stupid. Everything bad about the economy is blamed on the Republicans everything good about the economy is attributed to Clinton and the Democrats because they just HAPPENED to be in office the last time the economy was truly robust.
    7) Race. Black people desperately want to believe that anything is possible, and white people desperately want to prove that they are evolved and not racist.

    If having a comments page isn’t asking for comments, I don’t know what is. And, by the way, you know that all points of view are welcomed here. I was hoping you had been reading my Obama posts! 🙂
