You know the thing about colored people that makes me wonder. Where the hell are the transparent people? Surprisingly Qwerty has a point here, America is a red, white and blonde country.
I do not think 'Black becoming President' is over hyped. No one really expected that Americans would rise above their biases to vote for a black man. Now this is not to discredit Obama in any way. Irrespective of color he is an intelligent, smart and capable man. The hype is a complement to the nation that years of negative perception towards black people did not cloud their choice.
However, I would not say the same is true for black people. How many black people would have voted for Obama if he was white? Why is it that black people seem to care when one of them is involved? I do not want to sound prejudiced or racist, but that is the way many black people in the United States think. When Obama won, one of the first few things that I told people was tht 'black people no longer can whine that its the white man ruling the country'. My personal theory is that now that black people can no longer blame government, they want to blame racism for the government. Just a personal perception.
From my observation along with some racial perspective, black people have built a negative stereotype for themselves. This makes it harder for other black people to succeed. One of the black people I worked with literally had to move out of her pre-dominantly black neighborhood as her daughter got beaten up by
All that serious jazz. Seriously racism. Life is just one big race. Whats more with one or more or hybrid races. It's just like vampires vs werewolves just not as sexy or fun. Sometimes I wonder if we all fell down a hole and living in a lalaland. Like the dodo told Alice that the race track is a circle of any shape that does not matter, where everybody has won and everybody must get prices. Sometime you open your mouth and bang slam you are Alice and give everyone prizes. No wonder the queen of hearts went "Off With their heads".
There is just way too much PC going on in the world. Come on people, be a Mac once in a while. Stereotypes are fun to make fun of, sometimes you just get in on it and have a laugh. Everybody why so serious?
I'm the crazy colored person who aims to head the minority wing of the KKK. Separate but equal. Whats so wrong in monkeying around a bit for once. Are we like too evolved or something for that. I'm the one who thinks 'thats so gay' is a universal adjective to define everying from Barack Obama to Sarah Palin, from FOX NEWS to Anderson Cooper 360, racism to men in pink tutus performing swanlake. Like talking about racism, its so gay. And don't even get started on how derogatory that is cause thats like so gay.
Yes, I am the one who is most likely to die, attacked by a lynch mob. But someone's got to step up to equal opportunity hatred, like Sarah Silverman - Jewish people driving German Cars - It's the opposite of FUBU.
