President Obama Goes Delusional
As America Goes Tribal - Again


"Open your eyes and look around! America’s
arguably a land fermenting in turmoil​ and unrest:
internally divided along the borders of race, class,
gender and religion. This nation is philosophically
and geographically “split” - the 1861 Confederacy,
which was never ever laid-to rest has been reborn
under the camouflage of the Republican TEA party."

Tragically President Obama has gone full-blown delusional.

Last week in the aftermath of police assassinations and police murders this nation’s first non-caucasian commander-in-chief suggested the “American people aren’t as racially divided as they appear to be.” Mr President sir, I’ve got to ask you - have you lost your cotton-pickin’ mind bra’?

This . . . Negro’s crazy!

America’s ethnically divided, as carved-up as it’s been in decades. Or, as disunited as it’s eternally been. Perhaps the sharp n’ blunt actuality is the United States of America has always been racially divided and never, ever has it been racially “united.” I see a nation as tribally divided as a box of Neapolitan  ice cream - layers of different colors and classes divided by an mean, nasty, niggardly-minded vanilla line of exclusion and discrimination.

A “delusion” is; a belief that is held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary.

“Superior evidence to the contrary . . .” good-God man open your eyes and look around! America’s arguably a land fermenting in turmoil​ and unrest: internally divided along the borders of race, class, gender and religion. This nation is philosophically and geographically “split” - the 1861 Confederacy, which was never ever laid-to rest has been reborn under the camouflage of the Republican TEA party.

Behold!!! The Lost Cause “unifier“ - Donald J. Trump.

Think of Grand PoohBah Trump as some coalesced, contrived version of Kentucky Fried Chicken’s Colonel Sanders and Holly-weird’s Frankenstein - created, adopted and embraced by White America. You bet- from the Klan to the cops to the GOP - one n’ all are falling in-line behind the great White hope/dope, who’s now the face n’ mouth of WASP Nationalism. Dig this; Lord Trump’s re-branding himself as the law n’ order president. Do you know what an old school Governor George Wallace-type dog-whistle that term is?

No, we Black folks probably don't know, they didn’t mention it on “Empire” last week. Thank the Gods I’m fluent in Rednecklish. Translation: “I’ll put the Negroes and Mexicans back in their 4th class cabin.

President Obama, sir, have you not detected how “unhinged” most White people are becoming? I understand you must take the “Kumbaya” high road, but you’re the only soul on that yellow-brick road talkin’ bout “One for all n’ all for one.”

Ponder this; If only White men were voting . . . Trump would be President November 6th, we wouldn’t even have to wait to the next day to determine his victory, it’d be a massive landslide.


If only White people, men and women were permitted to vote (the good ol’ days) roughly 75% of White males and 55% of White women would vote for Trump - despite his RMS Titanic set-of steamer luggage. The political ”Right” is truthfully, honestly the party of, for and by White people. If they could, at this moment-in-time, White America would, along with Australia, England, Canada, maybe even Putin’s Russia and the rest of the professed-to-be “civilized” White world be declaring war on most of the colored world.

Imagine an global race-war. Forget getting “medieval” or “biblical,” it could get “primitive” around-here.

Why can’t this President see the oncoming chaos? Why can’t we all agree White America may not unanimously back King Trump, but millions upon millions . . . upon millions are in Mormon Tabernacle Choir like harmony and agreement when it comes to putting White folk’s self-proclaimed high n’ mighty values, interest and goals above the rest of the country and planet.

Call it “ramming” American Exceptionalism down the world's throat!

Bless our hearts . . . and asses this is 2016, and if America’s rainbow coalition, along with the enlightened Euro-Americans vote, we won't have to set our clocks “back” 50 years on November 7th. Hopefully the unfortunate reality for Lord Trump; if he yearned to be president, he should’ve run in 1904 - before wenches and we, the unwashed gained our right-to vote.

Trump, Newt, Rush and ye’ good ole boys are poised to go on a coast-to-coast “coon-hunt,” the lynch-mob is gathering as we speak. There’ll come-a-day under a Trump dictatorship when he’ll have trumped-up provocations and the supposed justification to round-up, detain, imprison . . . and execute a vast-assortment of Americans of color under the guise of them being branded un-American, unpatriotic and treasonous.

Ain’t it funky now?!

From the mainstream NAACP and Urban League to the Kappas, Ques and Deltas, from the “new” Black Panthers to the “old” Elks, Owls, Masons and Mooses - we’ll all be tagged as uppity, untrustworthy hostile Niggers.

Dig this; I submit, under a Trump Presidency Black folks will be referred to as “Niggers” on the congressional floor or from the Oval Office.

Who want’s to bet? Put your money on the table! Lay it down, I’ll cover it, if it’s a million dollars! Armstrong Williams, “Condi,” Dr. Carson or Mrs. Mia Love - any of you Negro Conservatives, i.e., useful, willing bureaucratic hookers, whores and hoes who sold their “Blackness” for moo-lah who wants to wager a few-thousand “dead-Presidents” on that prospect?

Shame, shame, shame on you Black SOBs for co-opting Frederick Douglass and his now ancient GOP affiliation to shield yourself from our contemporary and accurate condemnation. Yes, one of your Confederate colleagues, in a tantrum-of frustration and anger will call us what he and his peers believe us to be - Niggers, and there your Black asses will be, standing beside your White man, telling us how “Mista’ Trump didn’t mean it like it sounded.”

It’s a 107-degrees in the shade.

Consider this compadres: the unofficial Chieftain of White America has declared, at minimum, a cold-war on the “colored” world, and he’s hinting at “urban” semi-Martial Law just by mentioning
Rudy Giuliani and the word “Attorney General” in the same breath. And you sellout Uncle Tom’s will rationalize, minimize and even some of you Black preachers backing Trump, you despicable ebony Benedict Arnold’s will justify it, even in the current time of combustible conflict.

It’s a thin, thin-ass line between pimpin’ n’ preachin’!

Might-it-be the world-wide racial climate is so-goddamn combustible, President Obama just can’t “see straight?” Columnist, Desi Cortez, was hatched in the heart of Dixie, circa 1961, at the dawning of the age of Aquarius, the by-product of four dynamic individuals, Raised in South-Central LA, the 213, at age 14 transplanted to the base of the Rockies, Denver.
