      yeah yeah we get it. Obama has a whole team of white people in suits behind him. but he can still run shit and decide a lotta things. funny ain't it, when nothin bad goes on people say the president doesn't have any power, but soon as something fucks up or a bad law is passed thru... who's the first finger pointed at... thats right

  • Bigot

    I can't say I'm surprised by the comments. Every single person below me is an uneducated racist retard. If you voted for or are making an argument for either of the 2 major party candidates you have NO CLUE what you are talking about much less what is going on in this country. just shut the hell up and enjoy your life because you're not gonna have one for much longer. and NO racism was not invented and is NOT an institution, that is the most ignorant and inane idea I've ever heard.

    Oh lord! People like Waka are the reasons for all the black stereotypes. smh

  • Crenshaw2436

    Oh perfect it works.... message to all black people....you voted for a man simply due to the color of his skin therefore you are the true racists, not the white people who didnt vote for Obama because they didnt agree with his policies...i'm also convinced you havent a clue what obama's policies even are. Now im aware there are white people who didnt vote for him because of his color but they are a minority unlike the number of blacks who voted him in simple because mr obama resembles them in skin color. Slavery was a horrible horrible thing but why bring it up here? What does slavery have to do with the 2012 Election? Absolutely nothing, but you people, yes i said it, you people always have an excuse for why your people are out of fuckin control. Slavery, racial profiling, etc etc. Put down the 40 ouncer, maybe get an early nights rest and wake up before noon tomorrow and go get a job....you know that thing that mr obama has made nearly impossible to get because things have actually gotten worse since he took office. oh here it comes....you are gonna blame mr george bush....he did spend but he was a wartime president while obama is not and look at how in the hole this country is $$$$ wise. Those "hip-hop" artists who this article makes mention of are millionaires, are you stupid enough to believe they give a flying fuck about you? they don't, and obama doesnt either, he is like every other president, black or white, who lies his way into the white house...so enjoy it...enjoy this man as the president of this once great country who will continue to put more debt on your laps that'll be so heavy you wont even be able to get up to take a shit. And to answer something mentioned below, if an asian gentlemen was running for president and every asian person i came across was voting for him simply because he was asian id have a problem with that too. Racism never went away but it only got worse in the last 5 years or so, and you know what? gloves are off now, black people are so blantant about their racism i encourage all white people to do the same.

    • Umm..

      racism isnt an institution you idiot. its been around since ancient times and didnt even deal with skin color. but yes whites brought it to the forefront during the slavery days. and yes whites are some of the most racist humans in history but these days every single race is capable of and responsible for keeping racism alive against one another in ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE!!! stay in school kid.

    • Doubl Negative

      @Crenshaw, nobody is racist by their own definition of what constitutes racism. Even Hitler didn't write Mein Kampf thinking of his manifesto as being racist. It's hard to be objective and see things from somebody elses' point of view, but it's easy to be subjective and view the world through your own personal, insular, parochial prism and thus, we only see racism in people who are different to us. Most people would agree racism is an antiquated, nefarious concept, but nobody wants to admit they're guilty of any aspect of racism and find ways of mitigating themselves from these accusations. One way, as perfectly illustrated by your missive is shift the blame on a group of people who are the antithesis to your view point, ethnicity, class etc. The real fact however, is everyone has a proclivity to be racist, it just manifests itself according to the indivisual. A metaphore that works is we all naturally smell, but some people have poor hygiene, whereas others make an effort to be clean and smell nice. The racism exuded in your post carries a figuratively putrid stench, whereas Brothers who voted for Obama can only be guilty of an innocuous whiff. Racial solidarity doesn't constitude racism. The only cool thing about this is he's a death metal fan.

    How many elections with white Presidents did black people walk around saying "Oh they only voted for him because he's white." NEVER. When Bush won TWICE we got over that shit the next day and moved on.

    • TaZzZ

      But white people were never enslaved for 400 years and oppressed for 150 more. So what's your point? If you can recognize the significance of having a black president then you have obviously never left your suburb where racism doesn't exist because there is no race to confront. Racism is still a very real problem in American society, whichever direction the hatred is aimed, so to see this sort of turnaround is incredibly hopeful. I'm white. I didn't vote for Obama because he's black and thats symbolically important, I support him because I believe in liberal, progressive policies and can rationalize their political behavior over the past 30 years or so. But your telling me that if someone from your tax bracket, religion or ethnicity was up for election you wouldn't vote for them. As white america, we don't have a sense of racial solidarity in this country like blacks of latinos do so we can't understand it. But the fact that he's a black president who stands for the disenfranchised, oppressed people in this nation is huge. If he were a black republican (I know, sounds crazy), the support wouldn't be nearly as huge. You have to understand that its a combination of racial solidarity AS WELL AS the fact that he is moving America in a direction that is better for black america and those who don't have the opportunity to take advantage of what America has to offer

    Snoop Dogg definitely voted for Obama; now he's that much closer to getting weed legalized. And in 4 mo years, maybe Flocka will graduate with his bachelor's in geometry.

    • TaZzZ

      Killed it in one sentence, nice work NOI... Western culture (white people) invented and perpetuated racism throughout history and now we want to complain because minorities act in solidarity? it makes no sense. Racism is very much alive, so any white person who would like to argue that there is only reverse racism nowadays needs to open their eyes. Look at the statistics, minorities are still systematically oppressed although it may not be as visible. People act like black people only started voting since Obama or something. Yea the number has increased, but why wouldn't it? Go look at the black vote in every election back to the 50's and tell me they haven't sided with Democrats (who protect minority interests) consistently. The transition would have happened even sooner if Republicans weren't the party of Lincoln. Wake up and study some American history, you'll see where I'm going with this...

    • TaZzZ

      Great point and well-worth the discussion... There would be a lot more friction that with Obama, but minorities in this country recognize that the Democratic party protects their rights/interests. Look at the Latino vote this time around. Look at the Asian vote. Democrats have always had a much wider base demographically while Republicans repeatedly rely on white, very rich or very poor, men and make their appeal to that base. Unfortunately, America is only 34% white and that formula no longer works. In my opinion, regardless of the individual I give American minorities enough credit to see through the bullshit and offer their support based on each party's history, policies, agenda, etc. In the end, Americans always love to judge based on the person, like American Idol or something. But when it comes down to it, both parties have been pretty consistent over the past 50 years, so we pretty much know what we are getting. Ideology ends up being far more instructive of a president's actions than their character, personality, etc. If you really want to become informed about politics, study the ideologies not the individuals because in the end they all conform to what their party believes and requires of them...

    Black people are saying he is black because he is qualified and he is black. Plus he deserves to be president.

    Ok, one question: How the FUCK are Justin Bieber,Mariah Carey,Rihanna,Bruno Mars RAPPERS !?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

  • truth

    @anonymous - You made a good point. The majority of black people only voted for Obama only because he's an articulate, well-liked black man, not because of what he can actually do in office. Really sad when you think about it.

    • @truth

      read what Tazzz said because that is the REAL truth.

    • TaZzZ

      Well unfortunately we can't wave a magic wand and rid the world of racism so we have to deal with it. But I would argue that their are more racist white people who voted against Obama (particularly south of the Mason-Dixon) that black people who voted for him on the basis of race. I mean no doubt there was a large majority, but as white people we can't understand racial solidarity and the significance of having someone that looks like us in a position of power FOR ONCE IN HUNDREDS OF YEARS. Do the math... Assuming that there are just as many racist people in the black community as in the white community (as statistics have always shown to be true), there are many more white people than black people and much higher concentrations of whites per state than blacks. White people make up 80% of the U.S., blacks make up 12%. That means that for every white person who votes based on race, 6.5 blacks would have to vote based on race to even the odds. You really think black people are 6.5 times more racist per capita than whites? Obviously you have never been to the south. Get the fuck out of here, it just doesn't add up.

    • truth

      Since you can't read, I say it again...the MAJORITY, not all black people, voted for Obama because he's black first and foremost and you know it. You can talk all that other stuff if you want, but you know its true. The point I was making is that race should not be a factor AT ALL in choosing someone to have this position. Being black, white, Latino, Asian, etc doesn't make a person qualified to lead a whole nation. And by the way, I didn't vote for Romney so I can't be a sore loser.

    • Anonymous

      Most of Romney's votes came from whites because they liked how well he did in ONE debate, NOT because of his VIEWS, or PLANS. How quickly you forget that LATINOS, ASIANS, former EUROPEANS (forgot about them?), some white American men and WOMEN voted blue. Since when is BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN Black? You just won't admit that people do NOT want the old way of life you are preaching. NOW, we will see if you SORE LOSERS will SIT DOWN and WORK TOGETHER, or act like a scorned lover and be SPITEFUL for 3 more years.
