President Obama’s a Black militant. Is
Are the outraged and ever-so-inflamed
run-of-the-mill Republican Rednecks implying he’s cut in the identical mold of
Huey P Newton, Bobby Seale and Angela Davis...? Or, is the charge this
President is toting the WEB DuBois and Paul Robeson Communist mantle...? Or,
can it be Obama sings the same “anti-American tune” as Fredrick Douglass,
Marcus Garvey or Stokely Carmichael?
Here, I’ve got both the touch, and
the nerve to give it to ya’ straight, with no chaser ... the President’s a “New-age
Honestly, virtually every and all Black
folks who demanded to be treated as people, as opposed to 3rd class
semi-citizens or human property - all who objected were branded as “militants”
- which I hope we can all conquer is Red-neck-lish for ... “uppity Nigger.”
Because no, he’s none of the above.
What is Obama?
Obama is the personification and
culmination of all that was asked of a young, gifted Black person of his/our
era - the man’s about as comfortable as a Black man can be in the two separate
countries that are America.
He’s unafraid, un-intimidated and unbelieving of a White man who claims to be
the pinnacle of human-kind... and that defiant, doubting notion scares and
intimidates the superior segment of America – Conservatives.
Obama is “more man” then most of these political punks and fabricated businessmen... and they know it.
Obama’s willing to go tongue-to-tongue,
blow-to-verbal-blow with White folks who deem themselves far superior. #44 has
traveled the world and been educated and enlightened in some of this country’s
best institutions of higher enlightenment and that worries insecure, paranoid
White folks who live in never-ending fear of what can only be termed a righteous
“retribution” for “how” the American Empire was constructed.
They’re so, so, very scared, they’re
now at a point of just “say any damn thing.”
From this President’s origins onward,
the charge is he’s nothing more than an illegitimate bastard... like most Black
folks are right? The lust-child, the half-human consequences and repercussions
of a one-time illegal and unethical union - that of a half-ape Kenyan, who like
a black serpent, seduced the young naive Nordic princess, who’d already been
brainwashed by her own Commie-Pinko-Liberal parental Beatniks.
The “Right-Wing tabernacle choir” is
singing that exact same song on 679 radio stations across the nation, 24/7,
365/52, 12 months a year: Obama’s mother was a “nigger luvin’ tramp” who was
softened up to the Voo-Doo we Black males do, brainwashed to trust we promiscuous
Yes, believe it, Obama’s parents are
the official starting-point with the Republican TEA Party lynch-mob, with which
their blind-hatred of this nation’s 44th President begins. He’s the result of a
relationship White men strived to keep as illegal and immoral, while they went about
raping and taking Black women on a whim... No?
As I stated, toss in Obama’s
well-traveled, Ivy League educated, an Ivy League law professor who only speaks
like a “typical Negro” when he chooses to. Interject the argument that Obama can
athletically drop a 30-footer on a dime’s notice, on a hardwood court in
on demand. He’s on the “greens slappin’ whitey” with a 9 iron all day.
Clearly he’s got a glide-in-his-stride,
a dip-in-his-hip, which makes all the ladies lust, (And there’s that word
Black n’ white for a man cut from the
same cashmere cloth.
You can call it Cashmere, you can call
The 44th President appears to be in a
happy marriage with a strong, smart, athletic woman with a beautiful mind of her
And he can sing n’ dance just like a
President Obama is no Militant; he’s a sex
symbol... a walkin’ talkin’ sex symbol, and dare I add that’s at least as
intimidating to Ricky Bobby, Tommy O’Toole and Bill O’Reilly as a Black
President crafted in the Black Nationalist mold of a H. Rap Brown or Ron
Do you have any understanding of how
the President’s “sexual allure” pours gas on the 400-year-old fire which is US race
relations? Obama is “more man” then most of these political punks and
fabricated businessmen... and they know it.
Back to the script; what is a Black
Better yet, to decipher the complicated
elements of this simple-ass debate, White America’s definition of a “militant”
goes far back, but since most of us are equipped with only public educations,
let’s just go back to Cochise and Sitting Bull whom I, as a Black man,
as a man of color, as a citizen of the World - see as freedom
fighters, resisting the tyrannical European crowns. I see Geronimo as I see
Nat Turner or Malcolm X... as freedom fighters... with truth, logic and the
Gods on their side.
The man’s about as comfortable as a Black man can be in the two separate countries that are America.
Rush and the residing Rednecks-in-charge,
articulating the mindset of White America, apparently much more accurately and
genuinely then just-about anybody else... they have their fingers on the racing
“heartbeat” of angry White America... and they wholeheartedly believe
Obama to be a “militant-anti-colonialist Pan-Africanist,” an angry half-Black
man who spent many a Sunday in the Windy City with his arrogant and angry wife
listening to Reverend Jeremiah Wright... tell the truth ... and shame
The Reverend is regarded as a militant
and so is the First lady. How can the President not be reciting the Black
Panther Party’s 10 point program each n’ every night before his head hits the
cooler other side of the pillow.
But wait, Dr. King was regarded by the
White establishment of 1967 as militant. Supreme Vice Under-Lord Dick Cheney
did not support a MLK National Holiday, siding with Ronnie “666” Ray-Gun, both “leaders”
contending King was a “communist.”
If this nation, if the court of public
opinion is going to go by Hoover/McCarthy/Nixon-type extreme paranoia - and yes
they are - then absolutely, MLK is a “Black-commie-pinko bastard” - and let’s
keep in mind, with this Neo-Conservative Neanderthal reasoning, Columbus was an
“explorer,” General Custer was the “freedom fighter at the Little Big Horn,
while Crazy Horse was a terrorist.”
Ain’t that a bitch?
Yes, it is. And it’s also US History
1776 to 1899, class #233 - we all ought to know it. Just as we all should have
learned “who and what” a freedom fighter is, what a political sex symbol cut in
the mold of a JFK is, and what an “uppity nigger” is in the mind of Mainstream
USA - which is a serious threat to White Conservative absolute monopoly on
