I appreciate your objectivity in these issues. It's a breath of fresh air being able to actually talk to a black person objectively because, as you said, that is lacking with the so-called black leaders we see in the media. People like you should be more active.
Hard to see how one could inspire this race.
And yet, here we sit in 2013, with a black President lamenting his hardships growing up as a black male. Lamenting his being a victim due to his race. Someone should have whispered in his ear that he is leader of the Free World.
And even if I do give him the benefit of the doubt and acknowledge his stories of white people locking their doors as he walked by (up until he was a Senator he says), what of it? He is President. He should be a beacon of hope for all black people everywhere. Yet he wants to tell you how hard he had it because of his race and that we should change laws and create programs to even things out?
If you tell people they have no hope and act in ways to affirm that they will always be disadvantaged because of their race, even if the acts are well-intentioned, they will eventually take it to heart and believe you. If you encourage factionalism of a race, they will believe they must continue to be that way because there must not be any hope to overcome that.
What a catalyst for the black community Obama could have been...
The hope for the black community should be the black people that have succeeded in all walks of life, and there are plenty.
They just don't fit the narrative.
