    "He hasn't said the word black out of his mouth, not even to talk about the color of his suit or his shoes! He cannot address the suffering of African people." ​

    Check out this first in an ongoing series of vignettes by African People's Socialist Party Chairman Omali Ye*****ela on the U.S. presidential candidacy of Barack Obama.

    "When you talk about a presidential election where they're going to spend more than a billion dollars, a lot of forces with a whole bunch of money are promoting him for their own reasons. Not because of what's important to Africans, but because of what's important to this element of the ruling class.

    "So he's important, because at this time of crisis, where you might be looking for revolution, where you might be willing to talk about overturning the system, he brings Africans back into the safe embrace of the Democratic Party."​

    Is this black man able to be a racist?

    Neely Fuller states that the chief weapon of a racist is deception. Is Omali deceiving us?

    Yes. The title alone is very deceiving. And in the video, if you don't know anything about Obama-you could be swayed to switch opinions of him. Obama isn't gonna stop or dimmer racism with becoming president. Being raciest is a biased opinion about someones race. Probably this guy himself doesn't know anything about Obama's past work. Maybe raciest isn't the word i should have used. I just really ****** hate when black people accuse other black people of not being black enough.

    You so right. Like our brotha oldsoul said the presidency is just a job. It's not a throne. We cannot condemn Obama if he does not in four years end a system of racism that existed four hundred years before he was born.

    He can't be the president of Black America. He has to be the president period. Obama has to be the president of the whole United States. I don't blame him for being aware of that. I can't imagine that he would get up there and do stuff to harm us but as president he can do no more or less than any other president to help us. Is he white power in Blackface? Of course because the people in power are never the people you see. The people you see are just doing the job given them by the people you don't see. Does that mean we shouldn't vote for him because he's just a pawn? Hey we been voting for white pawns so why not vote for a Black one?

    We have had almost 250 years of nothing but white male presidents. As soon as it looks like a Black man might get up there we go crazy and criticize him in ways we never criticized the white guys. It's just a job. Obama is just a Black man applying for a job. We as the masses also have a job and we should not allow ourselves to be so distracted. We so busy criticizing him for a job he doesn't even have yet we need to think about our job which is to unite and that unity will include Obama. A lot of times what passes for unity is just co-dependence. We don't ask is Obama intelligent? Does Obama have a realistic plan for ending the war in Iraq? Is Obama faithful to his very Black wife? Does Obama keep his cool and refrain from attacking his oponents no matter how hard they provoke him? Has Obama proven himself to be a statesman rather than just another politician? None of these things matters to us. All we want to know is did he say the word Black. Does he fit the stereotypes? Well he didn't and he doesn't bbut he is still among the beautiful Black men who stand out from the crowd so they can see which way the land lays.

    on the one hand i am not a "fan" of obama. i am not going to let that stop me from voting for him, however.

    pessimism and conspiracy theories are not going to move us froward.

    It's also important that you vote for him, more than a reason of him being black.

    Well said Everyone(I could not point any particular person out)Except for the 1stpost of corse
    In reference to the post...
    I am sorry Brother/Sister Uhuru but you are even sadly mistaken on your comment...Besides the fact that the state of Africans as Americans came as an affect of the whole......not by ourselves(which makes him nobler/more respected for not singling ANY race.)
    He not said "black people need help" but said that we ALL need change....because that is the ONLY way change can be made....he KNOWS what/who he is....I think all of those criticizers need to get that.
    I am not going to make inferences on thing I do not remember, and for that reason I am not going to try to quote anything or point out anything he said instead I will go and bring beack something I think that you need to hear....
    ~Peace~
