Hmm…how to follow that nice spot on V-Day...?
Let’s hit another psuedo-sensitive subject…my guy Barack Obama! I want to preface this ENTIRE thing with: I LOVE BARACK OBAMA, EVERYTHING HE STANDS FOR AND HOW HE GOT WHERE HE IS AND I CAN FULLY APPRECIATE THE MAGNITUDE OF A BLACK PRESIDENT. That being said…
Get off this man’s dick people (Hills excluded, she is comfortable there). I understand that people love the hell out of him, myself included. He is one the most powerful speakers and truly inspirational people I have ever seen. He basically lit a fire under the ass of America and told us it was OK to fight what was going on, because it was wrong. And he made us believe that if we wanted change, WE had to go for it – and we did. Here we are in 2009 with an amazing, awe-inspiring, helluva man as president, who happens to be black. With all hope, our country is on the precipice of TRUE REFORM and he is the man to take us there.
Whoa, OK let me hop of his dick myself and get back to the point…he is not defined by his race. He doesn’t perpetuate the stereotype that an illegal hustle in the streets is the ONLY way to live – he took his ass to school and worked for what he wanted, learned what he needed and used it all to his advantage. He doesn’t wear FuBu, RocaWear, Vokal or any other rapper’s clothing and I’m willing to bet on top of that he has never donned a rhinestone-studded airbrushed t-shirt. So why oh why are people creating the most coontastic tributes to this man? I can appreciate t-shirts, hats and bumper stickers as much as the next, but why are there tennis shoes, glow-in-the-dark posters, shot glasses and roach clips for this man?! Let’s not forget the Head-Of-State dildo! People, get the hell outta here with this shit! I can comprehend the magnitude of our first black president and fully believe Black people all over the country should revel in this moment, whether you voted for him not – enjoy the history. Don’t hate him because he is half-white, don’t hate him because he is half-black; love him for the great man is and still aspires to be. Don’t dumb down this historic time to trinkets.
**I will say that this was really hard to write. It was tough to stress exactly HOW I want people to get off him without sounding as if I, myself, don’t love him.
