President-Elect Barack Obama - Now That The Brotha Got Elected - He Ain't Black...Again!

Somebody here ain't quite like the others!

Folks can waste their time debating President-Elect Obama's racial identity if they want to, but I find the discussion completely pointless. Barack Obama has been called EVERY racial slur and endured EVERY racial stereotype attributed to African Americans and unlike many of us, he has suffered these indignities in the most public fashion. I believe that he has felt the pain, shame, and rage of every insult, every jeer, every nastiness.

Being called "Nigger" reminds EVERY black person whether they are all black, half-black, quarter-black, what in the hell ever black - folks want to measure blackness by, that they AIN'T WHITE! End of discussion.

Its amazing what some white folks eyes can see so differently depending on the background "light" lol

It's not only whites doing this.
Biracial folks are doing this too.

Things like this aggravate me. The hypocrisy is amazing. Some of these same people were most likely the ones to preach how "biracial" people should be able to identify themselves as they wish. Well now that the "head black biracial in charge" isn't flattering them by claiming whiteness, "houston, we have a problem" in the melanin challenged land. Typical.

Must certain people always feel entitled to be apart of, or claim all things great that black people take pride in?

I kept warning people about this a long time ago.

btw, I'm to the point where, the race of his black wife is the only thing that really matters to me in this racial haul and pulling. period.

This has been really pissing me off lately. The desire to claim Obama is now coming not only from Whites, but Hispanics and biracial folk. The most disgusting part is that some make it sound like choosing to identify as Black is like choosing to identify yourself as less than human. I wonder if he looked more White and identified as White, would those same people also insist that he not simply refer to himself as White but also recognize his Black side?

Love your blog still Prof T! Sorry for the late posts...I'm cosigning with Sheryl. I have read too many non-black people not wanting to identify Obama as black. Just last year he was black, hell..two years ago he was blacker than black..he was a black nationalist if you believe Fox (lyin') News. Now all of a sudden white folks want a piece of the pie (last year they didn't want to touch). Well Lorraine Hansberry said it best about the dream deferred... I believe Prof T wrote about some raisins...
