Why??? does the truth hurt??? keep living w/your head in the sand
Do I have to make you look foolish in two different threads now? I have two words to answer your baseless "whitle guilt" claim. Cynthia McKinney. She was on the ballot in all 50 states and D.C. Her skin is darker than Obama's (should have meant more guilt votes right?) She also is a woman so she should have got some votes because of "male guilt." If all this were the case McKinney should have won in a landslide. To take a saying from our old buddy Kobeskool
Obama > McCain, just accept it.
By the way, you might want to keep yourself stocked with some good lube for the next 8 years. If Obama is as good at basketball as people say he is, he probably has alot of stamina.
Now that a "black" man is President, will black people stop blaming "the man" for holding them back and start doing what Bill Cosby said they should be doing?
PS Not that I like to proliferate stereotypes but did you guys hear that Obama wants to install a basketball court in the White House?! How f***ing funny is that? What's next? Instead of Airforce 1 he's going to get a tinted out Escalade with 22s and TVs in the headrests?
I didn't know I blamed "the man" for holding me back. Hell I didn't even know I was being held back. Thanks for informing me. If you think having a black man as President will get rid of racism on either side you're sadly mistaken. There will always be racism as long as we continue to sweep it under the rug and ignore it. You should stop watching those Homie D. Clown sketches on those In Living Color reruns. I haven't heard one black person ever in real life call white people "the man." This isn't 1991.
Oh yeah and about the basketball court in the White House let's look at our past few Presidents and see if you can imagine any of them playing basketball on even a regular basis. Bush 43 likes baseball and could care less about basketball, Clinton was young but a fat guy, Bush 41, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, and Johnson were all old men by the time they became President. Kennedy was young but had really bad back problems. Eisenhower and Truman were old and Roosevelt was in a wheelchair. I don't see any of our Presidents from the past 70 years enjoying playing a game you have to do a lot of running back and forth to play. That's why they've played golf.
Ofcourse I know he got votes just cause he was black and I know he didnt get votes cause he was black. I just find it shocking how little some people pay attention to something so important you know?
It just blows my mind..
Yeah it blew my mind too in 2000 when the more "experienced" guy (Al Gore) lost to the less "experienced" guy (George W. Bush) because a large group of people (faux-Christians) voted for somebody that they saw as being one of them (Bush says he is a born again Christian).
This isn't anything new dude. Americans don't pay attention until their wallets start getting lighter.
Black people are giving intelligent answers in farming schools, voting and becoming Presidents. I think it's safe to say that they "caught up" and it's past time we scrape those racist affirmative action laws.
PS How does this affect me using the "N" word? Can I use it more freely now? Clearly a landslide vote for Obama shows that we're not racist as a whole, so when we use the "N" word as a whole, we use it in the post-modern term, ala Jay Z and all those other multimillionaires we grew up listening to. Right? S Dubbs? Mr Jet? Reg? Can we get an official ruling on this? Thanks!
Let me let you in on a little secret before you continue to whine about Affirmative action....come close...closer.....closer.....AFFIRMATIVE ACTION HELPS MORE WOMEN THAN BLACK PEOPLE!!!
But then again it's much easier to ignore Jessica Quinn and believe the reason I can't get into the college of my choice is because Tyrone Jenkins took my spot. It's funny how people of all ethnic groups have been kept out of universities because of things like "legacies" but we get our panties all in a bunch over affirmative action.
I'll take the bait. You can use the "N" word all you want. Go ahead and knock yourself out. Just remember when you call me (and I'm just speaking for myself here) that word, I'm going to ask you not to call me that word ever again. But if you insist on continuing to call me the "N" word, I'm going to knock your ass out. But that's just me and it doesn't matter to me if it ends with an "a" or an "er." That also goes for black people and Latinos and everybody else too.
Jay Z can say whatever he wants because he figured out like Diddy and Dr. Dre did, that if he has his own record label with 10 rappers under him all using the "N" word, a portion of the sells from each one of those rappers will go to him. Making himself even richer as a label owner than he would be just by remaining a rapper alone. Jay Z knew that those suburban white kids who want to be cool, would be his way of becoming a multimillionaire. Something white record label owners have known and profited from since the 1980s.
