But it is about Obama Doc, you said that the people of this country, including the media are betraying Dr. King's dream? Where is the racism in this celebration when so many came from far and wide to be a part of it? The fact that the media keep saying he's a "black man" the "first black president"? It is what it is, and it is what is always done. Perhaps in time they will get beyond those borders.
No, it is not about Obama. If I write about the founding of AMerica, that does not mean I am writing Washington's biography. They are linked, that is sure, just as day into night is linked, but they are not the same. And this is not about Celebrating Obama's election or inaugeration. Again, people read, but do not understand. This is about how we are told we must judge him differently. We must judge his acceptance speech differently. We must judge his actions differently. And I have to ask all who claim we have to, in all seriousness, why? He is one of 44, not one of one.
Doc, how am I not getting past it? Because I don't see your point or I dont' see yours? It is quite obvious that everyone did in November, that everyone saw more than just the color of his skin, which is truly wonderful! What I don't understand is your article seems to be condemming those very same people who voted for the choice they wanted. Who are celebrating what is an historic occasion because no one thought it would happen, and it has. This is a moment to find awesome and say, yes, we have stepped further, progressed with a purpose than what it used to be.
No, again you are missing it. Do you see a BLACK President? Or a President who is BLACK? That is not the litmus test, but it is an indication. King said "judge by the content of his character" as the first thing, not the last, or middle. We are to judge Obama on the content of his character without a qualifier of what color he is. No one is slamming anyone for celebrating his inaugeration. What I AM slamming are those that stop me from saying "Now, Carter (or any previous president) did this that way......."
It really matters not what color, creed or race Obama is. It really matters not if he is the smartest or the dumbest. It matters when we are not allowed to think of him, praise him, or criticize him without first genuflecting at the alter of liberalism and adding the qualifier "for a black man".
