Political Racism

October 13, 2009

Today, I was randomly perusing the internet and stumbled upon one of the most absurd things that I have ever read.

Someone stated in a blog that they believe the reason Obama is screwing up the country is because he is black. Now, this is not a post on whether or not Obama is, or is not, “screwing up the country.” It’s irrelevant to my point.

 

To say that the reason for his so-called “screwing up the country” is because he is black is irrational.

 

Think about it. Politicians have been corrupt and destroying everything in their path for decades, and guess what? Most of them are white!

 

Those of you who know me pretty well know that I have never been a major Obama fan. However, that doesn’t mean that I abide statements like this. It’s apalling, and I believe those who make statements like this have a severe lack of intelligence.

 

Whether or not Obama is making mistakes is yet to be seen, in my opinion. But the fact is, he will probably make some, due the unfortunate fact that he is human, as are we all. All humans make mistakes; all politicians make mistakes. Some are worse then others; some are more deliberate than others. But just know, any mistakes Obama makes will be do to his human nature, not to his race. All stereotypes aside, one of the most intelligent people I have ever had the privilege to know was black.
