I started this thread because I was accused of being "off topic" in another thread. Heaven forbid I don't want to spin the topic off course . So I'll ask here in a thread specifically devoted for it. It seems that if you question Obama's presidency, you are suffering from the "crabs-in-the-barrel" syndrome---not because you have legitimate concerns. Most who contend this see you as "jealous hater" that is working on behalf of white supremacy to see us disunified, but they fail to see their own role in the perpetuation of white supremacy by failing to expect more than 'blackness' from a person heading an empire that was built and sustained on the blood of black people. For the record, this is not an anti-Obama thread based on envy nor is it one to try to lay all the blame at his feet because that would also be false. With that... 1. If you support the current presidency, and don't mind sharing, why do you support it? Why did you vote for it? 2. Do you think he will bring real change, despite that he is working under the same infrastructure as those who came before him? What factors are involved in change in your view? 3. If you think he will bring real change, in your view, what will that change look like exactly---both domestically and internationally? 4. If you live in another part of the world, and don't mind sharing, what are your views? Thanks.
