    Is he an agent of the White Democrats to re-garner the Diasporic African vote in America? It seems that after the last election, our people were sick of the Democrats. I'm curious what people think, in that maybe Democrats know that Obama cannot win, but are simply using him to solidify "the black vote" on the Democrat side for many more years to come.

    humor me.

    let me guess... i bet that sharpton believes he is not a "leading black," but a black leader?

    my opinion on american politics is poor. that is my preface to this.

    these so-called black leaders who are throwing durt on the Il senator is nothin but hate. they hatin becuz they thought that, as "leading blacks" nobody could eva play the role of a black leader as good as them.

    now this fella obama has come along and took all their attention away from them. they are all whining like little babies and it has nothing to do with yu and I. it has nothing to do with yor and my development. it has nothing to do with our people. its all about the leading blacks and them having their faces in front of cameras and what not.

    the big jealous babies are contradicting themselves at the same time. the same thing they accuse obama of doing or, what he MIGHT do, is the same thing they been doing to us since the 60s.

    i can prove this even further. can yu download and attach here Cornel West's part when he was discussing Obama. i'mma show yu the ultimate in hypocrisy of that interracial forum for black america.

    what da hell are euros doing at a black forum yall?

    the lack of :thinking: on deeper levels is what has those people in the audience captivated by empty words and promises. and what makes it even more sad to the intiates but most funny to the unintiated is that these leading blacks dont even promise nothing new or say anything new but somehow is still able to get us to follow them down their shallow paths.

    Not saying he can't, but perhaps Democrats have him figured out that he can't win given America is still racist to the core. The only way he can win is if he becomes more flagrantly anti-African in policy than his White politician peers.

    Keep in mind people that this clip is from 2005. To keep this in perspective, I meant that since the Dems saw the dissatisfaction of Africans in America, they are using Obama to re-solidify "the black vote".

    I ask again....WHAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE?

    The first object of psychological warfare is to undermine the will of the enemy.

    This is what is behind the anti-Barak sentiment.

    To cause doubt using speculation that his campaign is not viable and a trick of the white man.

    Yet, what is the alternative?

    THE BALLOT OR THE BULLET?

    Since many of us are not ready for the bullet, we must exercise the ballot and if Barak Obama is not viable, again, what is the alternative?

    Another white Dixiecrat??
