Obama Race Speech: Making White People Feel Safer by Telling them That Its not "Only" Their Fault

So far Barack Obama has not failed to disappoint in regards to his willingness to kiss the big fat ass of White sentimentality in America. Mr Obama it seems will go to any embarrassing length to play the “good guy” apologetic, no-hurt-feelings Negro of so many an exotic Sidney Poitier dream so many White folks dream of at night. While they sleep soundly secure in the fantasy of the epic sonnet to global White Power by Rudyard Kipling, the reality of White supremacy and its negative effect on no-European societies go unmentioned and unnoticed by the White colonialist mind. No wonder, to face such horrors is self-incriminating and the sense of justice all men feel when confronted with the genocidal actions of one people against another indeed do demand justice.

For Barack Obama to plead with the White American population about their dream for a race-neutral United States that utilises theological-corporate Europocentric values and objectives as the sole fundamental litmus test for universal understanding while himself a very public victim of White American racism is appalling. Not that my analysis nor the deconstructions of my brothers and sisters observing this minstrel show will mean much outside of the African community. We do not own major media. We do not even own the creative expression packaged and marketed around the world for the direct benefit of the White businessmen who own and jealously guard the means of production. Our opinions, when it comes to critiquing the colonialist government and society that claims dominance over us, are limited not just by our lack of access to technology, but the reluctance Whites have in listening and reading to voices that do not reinforce their sense of entitlement and authority over the entire world. It is the proverbial sea in which we all swim. White makes right, no matter what the circumstances.

The fact that Mr. Obama is acting like a sucker by punking himself out on international news media to the sheer delight of the liberal White representatives is not a minor thing to us. Unlike the Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan and his own pastor Reverend J. Wright, Obama is enthusiastically handing over his manhood, and I’ll say it the way I feel it, his African manhood, to the White American public, a population that has hated and fought the Black man and woman from attaining any sense of measurable dignity by any means necessary. And the fact that White people in the United States have always scuffled and without a doubt continue to resist acknowledging the damage that they as a society have and continue to be responsible for is a moral crime that their own twisted version of Palestinian theology promises will be accounted for in the afterlife.

This was the message behind Pastor Wright’s much reported sermons and African people still able to function after four hundred years of genocide know it when they hear it. At some point Mr. Obama hear it too. Is it that the gleam of being the “first” Negro in the White House is too strong? Are Black people in America that politically shallow?

When one looks at Condi Rice and Colin Powell and especially Supreme Court house-negro Clarence Thomas we must as reasonable people of conscience say yes. Their records of support staff for White Power in the United States make this clear as does their silence on race issues. Mr Obama has made his contribution to the “race problem” by taking any responsibility for White American racism and ethnic bias away from White people. For Barack Obama, racism in the U.S. is an equal opportunity endeavour:

Obama Race Speech: Read The Full Text - Politics on The Huffington Post: "Just as black anger often proved counterproductive, so have these white resentments distracted attention from the real culprits of the middle class squeeze - a corporate culture rife with inside dealing, questionable accounting practices, and short-term greed; a Washington dominated by lobbyists and special interests; economic policies that favor the few over the many. And yet, to wish away the resentments of white Americans, to label them as misguided or even racist, without recognizing they are grounded in legitimate concerns - this too widens the racial divide, and blocks the path to understanding."

“Legitimate concerns?” Mr. Obama actually defended White racism as ‘legitimate concerns’ held by a wide swath of Americans. How else should a person of colour perceive such a statement? Barack Obama has cast his lot with White America and in no uncertain terms. Even to the point of patently excusing the historical marginalisation and murder such attitudes encompass.

Why not just hand the Ku Klux Klan a medal for upholding the best aspects of American White fears and the collective inability of the colonial White mind to accept responsibility for mass destruction of the non-White planet? He might as well, the White mainstream media in particular the liberal “alternative” sectors are already praising this sermon to the American White man and Israeli as “groundbreaking”, “illuminating” and “historic”. Why wouldn’t they? He provided more than enough grease to ease their public sodomy of him and by fiat, each and every African in America.

Barack Obama is not my candidate, nor is he the candidate of any self-respecting African living in the United States.
