    Maybe there's something about Obama that we don't know, eh? Ducks and eagles don't hang together nor support each other.

    I don't think there was anything untoward, or hidden-agenda about Obama's call to Jason. To the contrary. IMHO, it shows that Obama is on HIS game. With Jason, he gets to kill 2 birds with one stone - the gay AND black communities. He's signalling to the gay community that he will support them to the hilt; he's signalling to the black community that he's one of us and anything he can do to inspire us on the cheap, he's hung-ho, i.e., his expression of support for Jason won't make white folks nervous because: 1) the majority of white America is in favor of gay rights, and 2) the POTUS is expressing support for the rights of ONE BLACK MAN, not for black people.

    Checkers-players that we bees, we wanted us a black president. Post-Obama, hopefully we'll take up chess and angle for a PRO-black president.

    Let's put this in proper perspective and context, shall we?

    ... America is the Fall before Rome ...

    Nor should we expect him to. This is why it's imperative for us to own our own institutions, have our own governments and our own lands. We can never demand anything from white supremacy with a new face(Obama).
