Political refugees from the most war-torn countries in the world were granted asylum in Clarkston, Georgia were they are insulted throughout the town and during soccer games, which the town wants to ban.
That's that good old southern hospitality.
I guess that beats dodging rocket propelled grenades in the Congo.
- The black mayor of white town Greenwood, Louisiana gets his house shot up by what we can all assume was white people.
He doesn't think he's going to run again for mayor again.
- It's not like we all didn't know America is racist, but reminders like this show me what Obama could be up against in 2008 if he runs.
I wasn't deluding myself into thinking American was Rainbowland and he was going to win the presidency in a blow out, but I think he has the potential to shake shit up for any Democrats who enter the '08 race and try to halfass their opinions to appeal to Christians and Nascar fans.
Democrats will have to be on their toes if he can drum up real support in the next year or so and he can do that.
Besides, no one wants to watch Clinton, Kerry and Edwards outbore each other.
I still have to check out his book, but from what I've seen the dude is pretty straightforward. He cleaned out his immediate closet by admitting to drug use. He has a nice looking family and despite the fact that his first name sounds like Iraq, his middle name is the same as Iraq's ex-Presidents' name and his last name rhymes with Osama, he is a Christian and has a normal looking black wife with two normal looking little girls. No interracial family pics to scare away any white parents off the bat and his family can rock the hell out of some Jesus pieces if people need reassurance that he is cool with Captain Christ.
And who cares about his experience? Bush had little experience and he surrounded himself with a cabinet of supposedly knowledgeable and storied politicians and we see how that is working out...
Experience doesn't mean shit if you are ingrained in your ancient inflexible ways of governing.
Despite all this, the realest shit to me is the fact that he has to overcome black racism more than anything else.
Peep the LA Times article on the hating ass Negroes he is encountering.
Black people are really mad that he is a real African-American with a parent from Africa and not of Jim Crow roots.
His campaign is already striking up a lot of real conversations about what the fuck a black person is.
I'm American born but my family came from the West Indies and I have a scary sounding Muslim name. Not as scary as Obama's though.
Am I considered black? None of my family ever picked cotton in America, maybe somewhere else.
Obama was raised by his white mother in areas that ain't exactly considered "the trap."
Do you have to be from the hood to be black?
Seen all three "Friday" movies?
Should we check his music collection next?
Or find out how many white broads he's twisted out?
Most (black) people don't even know their ancestry past their grandparents.
Besides, in America you only need one drop of colored blood to be considered Negro. I didn't set shit up that way but that's life.
As far as I'm concerned, if you look black in America you instantly absorb the entire African diaspora, whether you like it or not.
Ask my boy Amadou Diallo...
