Obama Is ‘owed’ The Presidency - If He Loses It's Whitey's Fault

Lena Horne - Stormy Weather (1943)

The Big 'What If'

The hopes of black America ride on his shoulders. But the outcome's way up in the air.

Washington Post .......... for entire article it is two pages

By Randall Kennedy

( Randall Kennedy, a Harvard University law professor, an African American and an Obama supporter)

If Obama loses, I personally will feel disappointed, frustrated, hurt. I'll conclude that a fabulous opportunity has been lost. I'll believe that American voters have made a huge mistake. And I'll think that an important ingredient of their error is racial prejudice -- not the hateful, snarling, open bigotry that terrorized my parents in their youth, but rather a vague, sophisticated, low-key prejudice that is chameleonlike in its ability to adapt to new surroundings and to hide even from those firmly in its grip.
If Obama is defeated, I will, for a brief time, be stunned by feelings of dejection, anger and resentment. These will only be the stronger because the climate of this election year so clearly favors the Democrats, because this was supposed to be an election the Republicans couldn't win, and because in my view, the Obama ticket is obviously superior to McCain's.
But I hope that soon thereafter I'll find solace and encouragement in contemplating this unprecedented development: A major political party nominated a black man for the highest office in the land, and that man waged an intelligent, brave campaign in which many millions of Americans of all races enthusiastically supported an African American standard-bearer.
I hope that I'll take to heart the wisdom offered by two of my students. "Obama losing," one wrote, "would be hurtful, but it still spells substantial progress. . . . Change WILL come -- the wheels have been set in motion." Declared the second: "Sometimes you have to believe in the change before it comes (and in the face of its apparent defeat) for the change to be possible."

Wild Thing's comment.........

Yo, Randall, he be losing cuz he be a Commie. Can you dig it?

OK well how about this.......I'm voting against the half-white part of him that is an asshole. heh heh There that settles that! hahaha

This idea that the Democrats and a black man are owed the presidency is highly insulting. Especially considering that Obama is an awful candidate who insults the voters as bitter and most always sounds angry when giving a speech.

All HO-bama has going for him is race and his mastery at manipulating the weak-minded to support him on this basis. And this writer of this article is a racist!

The truth is that rather than bridge and heal the racial divide, Obama and his supports in particular, have made the racial divide worse, far worse.

I had a conversation at the gym with a left winger who said blacks will riot if Obama loses. He expected me to be scared.

Fine with me I said, it won’t be the first time. I moved to Florida from the Los Angeles area I know all about blacks and their riots and killing people and burning businesses in their own neighborhoods. If rioters come to my neighborhood and threaten our homes, we’ll shoot then down like dogs.

He hadn’t thought of that. lol

When the riots happened in Los Angels, they were spreading as far as Las Vegas where the blacks there were also trying to start things up. The casino's had some " friends" that stood across one of the main streets in the black area, long coats and big guns and they made an announcement to the possible rioters not to even THINK about it. hahaa It worked.

I will never forget that week, it lasted for almost 5 days of fires and horrible things we saw on TV. If we drove on the freeways we could see smoke and flames from all the fires the had started. And guess what Obama's friend, Oprah did. She invited some of the gang members on her show so they could tell about how ruff their lives were and why they deserved to be upset and do what they did. I will never forget that as long as I live. I had never seen her show and have not seen it since that one day. We watched it that one time to see what on earth she wanted them on her show for and we sure found out.

One gang member told about how he asked a man passing him on the sidewalk for a match or light for his cigarette and after the man gave it to him he shot him and then put his smoke out on his chest as the man laid there dying. Apparently there was some kind of deal made with Oprah's show that these gang members could talk and not get arrested with anything they said or something.

I remember a few years ago Randall Kennedy complained that when he and a white colleague approached a check-in desk at a hotel at the same time, the clerk addressed the white guy first. This is a guy who has a paranoid delusional concept of racism. An illustration of how emotional intensity distorts perceptions and judgment. And he's a Harvard law professor, passing this crap on to a bunch of soon to be lawyers. Good luck America.

So here is how this stupid formula works:

You are white + You don’t vote for Obama = You are racist.

It doesn’t matter that you’re a Republican and also didn’t vote for Carter, Dukakis, Clinton, Gore or Kerry. If you’re white and you don’t vote for Obama, then you are a racist.

It doesn’t matter that you’re a conservative and wouldn’t dream of voting for a left wing liberal. If you’re white and you don’t vote for Obama, then you are a racist.

It doesn’t matter that you don’t like the idea of a presidential candidate belonging to a church where the minister shouts “G. D. America!” from the pulpit; having a too-close association with a former and still-unrepentent flag-stomping terrorist; and doing real estate deals with a sleazy slumlord. If you’re white and you don’t vote for Obama, then you are a racist.

It doesn’t matter that you think Obama is wrong on national defense, wrong on taxes, wrong on abortion, and a long list of other issues. If you’re white and you don’t vote for Obama, then you are a racist.

If this is how Harvard University law professors like Randall Kennedy think, then they are even stupider than I thought they were.

I guess that means I'm a racist. Do you think that since Obamas' only half black that if there are going to be riots that they will only be "half riots"? You know no burning, killing, no significant damage, just go to the stores and get your TV, Stereos, Sneakers, and alcohol. Actually it would probably be a good idea if Wal-Mart and others just put all of the coveted looter items out in their parking lots so the windows/doors and non-looter items wouldn't get damaged?
The really sad part of this is that when these so called journalists bring up this crap all they are doing is planting the seed in the (mind?) of a bunch of low-lifes that could care less about election results. They know that regardless of who wins the election, their lifes are not going to change. So why not go crazy and get the things you believe you are entitled to, after all the white man owes you!!!

I just don't like Obama or anything on his ultra liberal platform. He is a socialist like Jimmy Carter. He associates with communists and crooks.

He also associates with racists and has injected race into this campaign. He wife and his pastor have made racist statements and in his biography Obama has rejected his mother's race and referred to his grandmother as a typical White. He never referred to his father as a typical Black.

I know some Blacks I would be happy to vote for if they were running. I have voted for Michael Williams, the Head of the Railroad Commission in Texas who is Black. His agency regulates all energy in the state. A very powerful position.

Black support of Obama is somewhere in the 94-97% range. so I guess that is were the racism is.

Finally, I can vote for anyone I want to for any reason. I fought for that right.

The fact that Obama is a Marxist amongst his other predilections doesn't absolve him from the fact that all his experience has been as a black agitator, no different than that of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton or Louis Farrakahn. They can call their subversive and seditious activities whatever they want, today it seems Community Organizer is the buzzword. The difference between Obama and the three anarchists mentioned above is that they will engage in a debate. Obama ducks every debate, exposing his shallow experience and lack of basic understanding, he needs those puppet strings to animate his missing thought process. He has failed the job interview IMHO, he can't even debate the issues in a common forum with his political opponent. If he can't debate the issues there he will fail in the world arena against others with the same closed mind mentality. If that isn't reason enough to vote against Obama, his choice of VP is more than enough reason, he can't debate, he can't reason and he can't lead he can only attack his detractors claiming racial bias and motives, that is precisely why he picked Joe Biden, the party attack dog. Obama runs on the Race Card, fear of rioting in the streets being his trump card, if he were for the nation and not for his special interests he wouldn't resort to those tactics, he would condemn racial overtones instead of inciting them. Well screw him, I've been in the mix of the riots during Watts and this time there aren't any orders to go there with an empty rifle, no pusillanimous orders to halt the crowd without the means to do so, no I will not tolerate destruction in my neighborhood nor their vile activities and personal attacks, sure I'll go down but I'll take a few ringleaders with me. If protecting my own and my nation makes me a racist then so be it.

In a letter I sent to many friends across the USA I said:

Obama told a crowd of Western Slope Coloradans and Eastern Utahans in Grand Junction yesterday that he is going to go after renewable energy and stop the dependency on fossil fuels. He was standing on the edge of probably the world's largest operating drill field for natural gas in an area which has no real unemployment. Of course, Nancy Pelosi said that natual gas is not fossil fuel. The layabouts who came out to hear him certainly don't want a job or they'd have one around Grand Junction. Women are driving sand trucks there and making 8-10 thousand dollars a month. If John McCain doesn't shove this up O's butt he doesn't deserve to be President. The Divine Sarah is in Boulder today, also known as Boulder, California around Denver. I hope she takes the Obamarxist on about the mortgage meltdown.

Read Investor's Business Daily for the facts on the cause of the mortgage meltdown and the collapse of Merrill Lynch, AIG, and others.

Obama also said that Republicans know how to campaign but not how to govern. This from a man who has done nothing but campaign all his life and never governed anything. What a POS.

Oops, I was misinformed about Sarah being in Boulder. She was in Golden yesterday. Sorry about that. There's a big difference in Boulder and Golden (Coors, School of Mines, Buffalo Bill's grave and other real American things.)

Yup, I too have heard the threats of riots and even a race war. So be it. Then label me a racist. Because I am not voting for a Communist, either. They can call it what they want. But what it is. When their party runs a legitmate candidate that actually puts the country first, instead of a left wing communist inspired ideology, and with respect to Liberty and the constitution then maybe I will consider one of them. Until then I will fight them.

If there are riots then so be it. Maybe this time they will learn that this country has no free lunch and what you get you must earn.

Hillary Clinton and her supporters arrogantly thought that she would be coronated President. Wrong! Barack Obama and his supporters arrogantly think that he MUST be elected and anointed as the Messiah President OR ELSE. Wrong! and Screw You!

The only racists in this election are those who call themselves, identify with, and constantly bring up Barack Obama as being a hyphenated American. There is no hyphen in President of the United States.

To those who think that Barack Hussein Obama is "owed" the Presidency ignore the fact that the President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces IS NOT an affirmative action job. Neither is the job classified as President-in-Training (PIT) and Commander-in-Chief-in-Training (CICIT).

How can ya be Commander In Chief,
when yer not potty trained yet?
gess i'mm a racist an will have to
accept it.Tha hell i will,gonna go
get more ammo-there's gonna be a fight!

Posted by: Chief at September 16, 2008 04:33 PM

I hope that I am one of the Whiteys that cause him to lose. Not that I would not vote for a man/woman of color. I don't like the term African Americans as you should be either African or American.

Posted by: Bob at September 16, 2008 05:20 PM

RAC, LOL good one........"hat if there are going to be riots that they will only be "half riots"?".....

What is so hypocritical about all of this is that they hated Clarence Thomas and yet he was I mean is a black man. So it has nothing to do with being black,or not that much. It has to be that the black man running for president has to be a far leftie then they will be ok with the person.

They are such total phonies.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 16, 2008 05:35 PM

Tom, that is exactly what Obama has done along with his wife, injected race into this election and that is a horrible thing to do, it is also a threat to say things like if not voting for Obama it means a person is a rascist. grrrr

Yes Michael Williams is a good man. I also am a thing called Facebook and Michael Williams is one of the people that I signed up with to be show support. I wrote him that I had posted about him at my blog and thanked him for being the good man he is.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 16, 2008 05:41 PM

Jack, your right "Community Organizer is the buzzword".

Yes he sure is afraid of a real debate and not the same ole controlled ones. No way will he do a townhall with McCain at least Obama knows he would fail at those big time. But OH I would LOVE for it to happen.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 16, 2008 05:47 PM

Horace, that is a great email you sent out and thank you for the link too. And also for the information about Golden too.

Yes this is a real opportunity for McCain and he better do something with it.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 16, 2008 05:51 PM

Mark, and this sure is what Obama is about......." instead of a left wing communist inspired ideology, and with respect to Liberty and the constitution "......

I feel the same way, whatever happenes happens, but these stupid people like the one that wrote this article, these type of threats do not work for me at all. They only make me stronger in how I feel.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 16, 2008 05:54 PM

Les, AMEN .........

"The only racists in this election are those who call themselves, identify with, and constantly bring up Barack Obama as being a hyphenated American. There is no hyphen in President of the United States."

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 16, 2008 05:56 PM

Chief, hahahaa love how you put that.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 16, 2008 05:59 PM

Bob I agree, it is not the color it is the character and what he stands for, wants to do and believes in, plus his associations are freightful to say the least.

I too dislike the hyphen thing totally and have no respect for anyone that uses it.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 16, 2008 06:01 PM

Obama has already stated in no uncertain terms that HE can't get past the issue of color. That means that he has stated in no uncertain terms that he WILL NOT represent ALL the American people if he is elected.

A man who denies his own grandmother is no candidate of mine.

Posted by: Trish at September 16, 2008 09:39 PM

I am sick of the "you might be a racist" spiel. I know who the real racists are.

The threat of racial rioting if he's not elected is just another scare tactic to get votes.

I can't believe how stupid this is.
