Obama–Is He Halfrican?
Ok, so this is my first rant and may be a little controversial. Since it is about the president, I hope nobody in a dark suit with dark sunglasses shows up at my door–if that happens and you are reading this, then you will know exactly what happened to me.
So anyway, we get the first African-American president elected. Now, I’ll be the first one to say that I totally disagree with his politics. But having said that, why do they always call him the first Black or African-American president? What’s up with that? What about his half Caucasian or White side? Actually it kind of upsets me. Now, I know the Black community is excited about it–kind of like when Tiger Woods became popular. But isn’t this a perfect example of reverse discrimination? In fact, wasn’t he raised by his White mother and his Black daddy high-tailed it back to Africa??? Why don’t we call him the first biracial president? Or the first Halfrican president– half White, half African? It’s sort of offensive that they totally ignore his White heritage and give all the credit to his Black heritage. Being raised by his White mother, it makes me start to wonder how much fried chicken, chitlins, collared greens, black-eyed peas, and watermelon Barack actually ate growing up?
So yah, I totally disagree with his politics. To have been raised by a single mother and made it to Harvard or Yale or wherever he went, become a community organizer, Senator, then President of the U.S. is a great accomplishment. Seriously. He’s doing a lot better than me. But hey, I’m just poor white trash. But then again, Barack probably has a little bit of redneck in him too, we just don’t like to admit it. Maybe we’re trying to finally make the Black community feel better after all those years of slavery and oppression by giving them all the credit for Barack. I’m not bitter that Barack made it to the Whitehouse other than the fact that I didn’t vote for him and don’t care for his politics. I’m just bitter that we totally ignore his White hillbilly heritage part of him. Oh, and I’d really love to hear your comments about this…
