Contrary to what you might read in the newspapers, see/hear on - line or see on the Idiot Box, Brother Obamas TRUE ,REAL base is US! yet you rarely hear about it. You hear all the Buzz words used for so- called regualr White folks (chuckle), Rich YT, Trailer Park Pink, as the Bottom of the barrel ones. You dont hear much about the RECORD number of AFRIKANS that enabled this brother to be where he is today! You see they are attempting to Mind "you know what" us! Much of his grass roots organization is comprised of US! In the inner/big cities. this is yet another attempt to downplay our importance as a unit. DON'T FALL FOR IT! Even those who are critical of him on some things(myself included) are gonna VOTE FOR HIM! Have given $ and or time for him (myself included). We had a great discussion in chat last evening and I think some things got cleared up. The Democratic party is FAMOUS for this SHELL game when it comes to AFRIKANS! We have NEVER gotten props. But were ALWAYS the BACKBONE of the party. In lastly, If he wins the White house, he WILL be held accountable to do MORE than the Whites before him to help the poor and US. that is the voting process! I would be a fool to support, vote for, help elect ANYBODY and then throw my hands up and just say F it! If he does NOT help US I will not put him back in for a second term! I would be an idiot to do so. He is getting a BLESSING from his people. That is not to be taken lightly. Many of our people who have nothing are giving some of that nothing to his campaign. I wish him well of course. This is NOT HATING! How can it be that when I am voting for him? But would you truly have respect for me if I helped put someone in a position like this and turned and walked away? Without paying attention? I would be well deserving of getting my arse whipped.
