What is the measure of a man? Is Barack Obama our man or is John McCain? Let’s review this. I received a letter yesterday from a white neighbor of mine that just so happen to be in the neighborhood looking for people that would be willing to put up signs of Barack Obama in their yards. I didn’t have one, so she offered to go get some for me and then I would place them in the yard and on my vehicle.
She was very angry at a lot of the responses from some of the white neighbors that refused to get involved with the campaign process. Out of that conversation that we shared, I would like to give you some food for thought regarding this election process.
Just in case you hadn’t heard….. From Fort Worth Star Telegram
What is John McCain were a former president of the Harvard Law Review?
What is Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?
What is Mccain were still married to the first woman that he said “I do” to?
What if Obama were the candidate who left his first wife, after she no longer measured up to his standards. (I’m adding) What if Michelle Obama were Barack Obamas, ex-mistress) ?
What if Michelle Obama were a wife who not only became addicted to pain killers, but acquired them illegally throught her charitable organization?
What if Cindy Mccain graduated from Harvard? What if Obama were a member of the Keating 5? What if Mccain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker?
If these questions reflected our reality, do you really believe this elections numbers would be as close as they are?
This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and minimizes the positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes the negative qualities in another when there is a color difference.
Let’s not forget, What if Barack Obama had an unwed, pregnant teenage daughter?
Would Barack Obama be able have his numbers as high as they are if any of McCains bloopers or Palins blunders applied to his life? You answer that. Because that’s exactly what they would be called. Bloopers and Blunders. They would apply to the measure of Obama at all costs.
Are we voting for Barack Obama because he is black
