i've noticed how systemic and spiritual the negative critique has become towards our very own native- yes, African native son, Barack Obama. The labeling of "The anti-christ/ beast, the sci-fi satanic "icon" one brother has chosen to depict him.... unbelievably the religious covering of a whitewashed, crab-driven mind. it's amazing to me that if a slave could see this day, he wouldn't believe it.... not b/c it would not be real... but because of the impossibility that one of his descendants could one day be president over this nation.... This is how most of brothers here are thinking. Sure we have ways to go and we have come long long ways. I emphasize "we" b/c nothing was given to us... Blood and Death earned our right to vote... to education... to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness... l see here, that many of our black men here have this crab's complex. At the moment, the slave says " you go on and get.... i'sa gon' stay right 'chea- so conditioned and branded with the fear of white supremacy- so limited and marginalized in his thinking that if any black man assumed elected power and responsibility, he would be a servicing in the confines of massa Jim's great scheme. l can't believe how Wise and Infinite and All powerful black people here say God is... with reference to whoever your God is, and then you pucker up your lips and kiss the muscles of "white supremacy"- almost forgetting that God is the one who sets down kings and sets up others... brings down kingdoms and rears others so that we understand that only He is all- source, all- time, all- space, matter, etc... A few brothers here, not only Keita thinks that white supremacy is so formidable that Barack is simply a puppet on the string of white government and that no way is it possible that a white man would let black people be presidents... Sad. Decades, perhaps centuries from now, Barack Obama will be your children's children's hero with a great great grandfather who couldn't see and appreciate, even missed how great the moment and the effect was b/c he believed so much in white supremacy. He thought it was a conspiracy when it was a revolution. let's go deeper -How can sisters believe in us when we don't believe in ourselves? Our daughters? Sons? How can we enforce God, revolution, education( Especially with this crab in a barrel mentality) ?
