Damned If He Do, Damned If He Don't

I am not a fan of Barack Obama, because I don't like his politics. But of course I would be happy if a black man won the presidency for the United States of America. It would indicate a remarkable change in the thinking of modern day America. Also it would open the door for possibly someone black with whose politics I do agree with. To obtain that office. Fifty years ago, in some places in America, blacks couldn't even vote. Now here we are in 2008, with the possibility of a black man being elected president. Barack Obama has the unenviable task of breaking the ice. Even though I wouldn't vote for him myself. In a weird way I feel sorry for him.

There are only two kinds of people who wouldn't know exactly what I mean. Those who base their opinions on emotions, and those who are outright dishonest. Both are reasons why I feel Mr. Obama's worst campaign days are still ahead of him. I feel sorry for him because he's in a no win situation. No matter what he says or does is going to draw negative criticism. If he satisfies the blacks, he'll estrange the whites. With the whites it's vice versa. Only gullible women look at their men and see no flaws. Even when their shortcomings are painfully obvious. That's why I am against a woman president. We don't need someone looking for the good in Osama Bin Laden. Men who follow suit are undercover pimps. They're like the papa san in Viet Nam, content to let the women do all the work. While they smoke opium all day.

Then we have the liars. They are quick to say color doesn't matter anymore. You don't know how they're going to vote though. The fact that Barack Obama is liberal, is just an excuse for them to vote against him. America has come a long way, but not that far. When pitted against a candidate of equal qualifications. Both races still support those who look like them. As far as this country has come, the dynamics of racism have changed somewhat. We still aren't judged by the content of our character. Unless of course you have lots of money. More than not it is based on the color of your skin. In the case of Barack Obama. He's damned if he do, damned if he don't.
