Racism isn’t dead — it is hiding in the open.
Barack Obama’s presidency has exposed just how racist white America really is.
In 2008, a black man was finally elected president of the most powerful country in the world. At the time, many people (myself included) naively asserted that this will finally put a nail in the coffin of all the negative stereotypes that have been held about black people for good. Boy, were we wrong. It’s not for fault in Obama. No. Rather, his presence has exposed the raw, visceral, racist underbelly of white America that had been lurking in silence for so long. In this post, I will potently demonstrate the unpleasant reality that racism is by no means dead.

“While wisdom is the application of knowledge, experience is its only teacher.”
While watching the parade of idiocy that perniciously masquerades on the world scene through the efforts of the tepid human souls that find themselves caught up with them, I am compelled to observe that the quality of human nature is not quite as high as I imagined. People do some really strange things.
“When people go in search of the truth, they tend to find whatever it is they’re looking for, whether it is the truth or not.”
Remember when Pluto was a planet? Now it isn’t. Remember when removing tonsils cured tonsillitis? Now we know better. Or what about when the moon was completely devoid of water? Recent discoveries show otherwise. All of these things were true once. So I’ve got to ask a really tough question of you:
What is truth?
If survival is only for the fittest then all men weren’t created equal.
Survival is only for the fittest. No exceptions.
Life is all about survival. Survival is all about competition. There would be no point to there being a competition if we all were made exactly identical to each other. We may all be of the same general design, but where the environment is concerned, some of us are much better implemented than others. That’s why only the fittest will survive while even the fit, will perish.
“The time has come to reaffirm…that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness.”
– Barack H. Obama
The world has gone bonkers for Barack Obama – and who can blame them? It has been a while since the White House has had a rational resident and a while longer since America has had a leader that could inspired the entire nation with such prolific oratory. What is a first however, is that the most powerful nation on earth has had a leader that is so unimaginably popular that he has been embraced by almost every nation, creed, race, religion and people on earth to the point where he has evolved into a cultural icon of Biblical proportions – literally.
“Politics is the subtle art of convincing other people that they already agree with your opinion.”
After a long, protracted and vicious political fight, Barack Obama, a 47 year old senator from Illinois, clinched a very decisive victory over his Republican rival, John McCain – all while still only on his first term as a senator. That’s a huge accomplishment, considering he only became senator in 2004. This is the definition of a meteoric rise. All over the world, the second coming of Chri… err… I mean, Obama’s victory signaled the end of eight years of a political mess of epic proportions under the previous administration. This is HUGE. But I don’t think half of America realises how huge this really is. Most people are clueless of the true combo buster Obama used to decisively win this one. In this post, I expose the true genius of Obama’s campaign. This was no election. This is the beginning of an epic revolution. Barack Obama is much bigger than I originally thought he was.
