THE UGLY AMERICAN; A RESPONSE

Well Mike, let me tell me from the standpoint of an African American; it's only getting uglier. No one has done their homework on Barack Obama and his doings, and this is going to sink our country. I understand only too well why my folks want to vote for this man, having been mashed down by the history of slavery and racism in this country, which continues. I also understand the very deep and racist reasons whites are supporting this man and planning to vote for him; I call it benign racism, but it's definitely scarier than the more open form practiced by the repugs. The benign racism of all nonwhite Americans says that blacks in this country have gotten all they are going to get, and if we elect a black man this will be the end of our obligations the them, and to the black problem in general. Obama is not of this country, nor did he experience many of the things of those of us who were. Whites do not look at him and see me, someone who might be angry for some of things my people have suffered in this great and wonderful country of ours. They think he is the embodiment of all that blacks should have achieved and to place this man in a higher office will show all us blacks what we can achieve if we simply try harder. Forget all that post slavery racism which was practiced against us. Forget that our true freedom only arrived a mere forty years ago, and yet we have still been halted from achieving the same goals as whites in this country, or even foreign born people arriving here with nothing in their pockets and yet skyrocketing past us. Whites still refuse to believe that racism exist in this country, and at least not to the extent that it once did. I can tell you from my own experiences that this is a lie. Racism is alive and well in this country, and it's practiced by every spectrum of people, from the conservative to the so called progressives who now want to simply ignore the "problem" until they go away. There is enough tragedy here for all of us, whether Obama wins or loses. If he loses it will be proved that blacks aren't good for anything. If he wins the mediocrity of his presidency will also doom us. Either way, it's a lose/lose situation for all of us after eight years of Bush, and having divided the party the way he did it will never be whole again. The sad thing is that I used to believe that blacks and whites needed each other to make this country the great nation that it could be, but that will never happen now. For us as African Americans a new direction is needed and it will have to be found without the help of whites in this country who no longer want to be helpful, but are finally ready to be rid of their "black problem".
