Barack Obama: The Magic "Black" President
The Magic Negro
© 2011 VVeasey Publishing
All of the people who thought that when Barack Obama became the first black president this was going to end racism in the U.S. were either racially or politically naïve or both. They thought all racial issues would somehow magically disappear when he became president. And when they didn’t they blamed him. After all, he was supposed to be the post racial president.
They claim that since Obama’s election there have been more racial incidents than before he took office. Even if this were true (which it isn’t) this would be a classic case of blaming the victim.
If he would've just stayed in his place and not had the gall to run for president there would be less racial incidents. It’s Obama's fault his presidency stirred up these negative racial reactions toward him. After all he's supposed to be the post racial president (not a platform he ran on)
Obama’s becoming president merely stirred up the underlying racial biases and prejudices that were already there simmering beneath the surface but not openly expressed.
It terrified, horrified and pissed-off many people who think that the United States is a white country and should only have a white president.
When he won the election it was like a bolt of lightning striking a powder keg of preexisting racial animosity, anger, hatred, fear and bigotry and setting it aflame.That’s why more racial flare-ups are occurring than before he took office.
This flare-ups started rising even before Obama’s election. It started when he was candidate Obama. Security had to be provided for him six months before security was usually provided to presidential candidates because of the number of death threats received against him.
Self-Assured And Cool!
They love to call Obama arrogant because he's self-assured, cool, calm and collected. Back in the day he would have been called an “uppity nigger”.
A black man is not supposed to be that self-assertive and definitely not the most powerful man on the planet. Many whites find a powerful, self-assertive black man threatening and an affront to their sense of racial superiority and dignity.
Some of you may be offended when I say certain people see President Obama as a “nigger” president but the hard reality is, that’s how some of your fellow Americans do see him.
It’s like back during the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth century when no matter what office or position of importance a black man attained he was always seen first and foremost as a "nigger".
If he became sheriff he wasn’t just a sheriff but a nigger sheriff.
If he was a police officer he wasn't just a police officer but a nigger police officer.
Not just a teacher but a nigger teacher.
Blacks weren’t held in the same esteem as whites who held those positions. Many people still hold that attitude towards blacks today and definitely hold that attitude toward a "nigger" who had the nerve to become president of the United States. That's racial blasphemy!
The politically and racially naïve (or the racially deceptive) want to make this all about politics and not race and imply that those shouting they want to "take their country back", are really talking about taking the country back from a Democratic, Liberal president.
They seemed loathed to think President Obama’s race has anything to do with the situation, when it’s obvious to anyone who wants to see the truth (and not put on blinders) that his race has everything to do with the animosity and hostility directed his way.
But...Obama is the magic negro.
Just the magic of his election to president, is supposed to magically wash away the legacy of four hundred years of racial prejudice, propaganda, and racial bias.
After all, he's supposed to be the first "post racial" president.
Does that sound like a reasonable expectation of Barack Obama or of any president? If so, please leave a comment with your view of the subject.
The Tea Party
You had the Tea party and others angered that he was running for president, wanting to “Take their country back” calling him a Muslim, a Socialist, a Nazi, comparing him to Hitler and doubting if he was born in the U.S.
They didn’t accept him as one of them, (a fellow white American) and tried to delegitimize his his right to be president.
And they were right. He’s wasn't one of them, he’s not white. He’s a “nigger” president.
That’s why they’re so angry and want to “take their country back” because he’s the first “nigger” president and that’s not supposed to happen. It’s goes against everything they hold sacred and holy!
Mitch McConnell's Top Priority
Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (speaking for the Republican majority in the house of representatives) states that, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president”.
Their top priority is not to help people hit hard by the recession and lack of jobs; or to create a jobs plans (although that was their campaign slogan) or to try to help turn the economy around or to make the super rich and multi-billion dollar corporations pay their fair share of taxes...noooo!
It's to make President Obama a one-term president!
Amazing and pathetic!
This fits right in with the rest of my hub.
My intention is not to insult anyone but to stimulate honest, healthy, truthful, realistic discussion and debate.
May you all respond in that spirit.
I know some of you think that I'm just ranting and don't know what I'm talking about.
Well, a here's respected member of the Republican party with enough honesty to tell the truth about what I wrote in this hub
The Republican Party is full of Racists
"Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, a self-identified Republican who was Gen. Colin Powell's chief of staff during his time as secretary of state, did not take too kindly to a recent accusation -- from Mitt Romney's controversial campaign co-chair John Sununu -- that Powell only endorsed Barack Obama for president because they're both black. Sununu would later backtrack, but the damage was done.
Wilkerson, who is white, didn't mince words on MSNBC'sThe Ed Show Friday night. "To say that Colin Powell would endorse President Obama because of his skin color is like saying Mother Teresa worked for profit," he said. And although he gave Sununu a bit of a pass, blaming his statement on an "unfortunate" choice of words, Wilkerson had much harsher words for the GOP as a whole.
"Let me just be candid," he said. "My party is full of racists. And the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander in chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin. And that's despicable."
