The Cult Of The iPod - Gotta Have Those White Earbuds!

iPod meet Obama

"Change Has COME"......And He Hasn't Even Taken Office Yet....

OK you'll have to work with me on the image that I saw because I didn't bother to ask the lady to let me take a picture of her t-shirt and I could not find another shirt with the same caption on the Internet.

So take this same picture shown here. Put the words "Obama OUR 44th President".

At the bottom imagine the caption "CHANGE HAS COME!!!"

Clearly in the mind of this woman and millions of others the 'CHANGE' that they have longed for came from the successful ELECTION of this one man more than their receipt of any particular set of benefits that are in line with their demands.

This is the great challenge that the Black community in particular will have to reconcile itself with. Where as after decades of advocacy to CHANGE the government with people who 'have their best interests in mind' they will operate in 2009 with a federal government dominated by their favored party. Add to this fact that many of the states that they live within and, most assuredly many of their city and county governments are populated with people that they favor. Despite this favorable arrangement their grievances remain.

Where as their previous disposition has been to "FIGHT THE POWER".....they are now THE POWER.

If you believe, however, that they are are going to continue FIGHTING AGAINST the power - you are sadly mistaken. They will continue to fight against the remnants of the IDEOLOGICAL OPPOSITION that remain to stand against them. Keep in mind that these representatives were sent to the legislature by the popular vote of the people in their district and they are simply doing the bidding of the majority.

The critical concept that the t-shirt wearers don't see to understand is that in the wake of their excitement and low threshold for appeasement......their critical demands, their PERMANENT INTERESTS remain unaddressed.

Demcorats In Delaware Don't Like The "Change" In Their Senate Seat To Replace Biden

Biden replacement creates blowback

Delaware Gov. Ruth Ann Minner’s (D) decision to appoint Vice President-elect Joe Biden’s longtime aide Ted Kaufman to the Senate has upset local Democrats who believe the move was a ham-handed attempt to engineer the election of Biden’s son, Beau, to the Senate in 2010.

By selecting Kaufman, who has said he would serve only two years before a special election is held in 2010, Minner bypassed other interested Delaware pols and ensured that Beau Biden would have a clearer opportunity to succeed his father in the Senate.

Beau Biden, the state’s attorney general
, is currently serving in Iraq as part of the Delaware National Guard.

Obama's Inconvenient Truth About Clean Energy

Obama’s Nuclear Reservations

Now all he has to do is make good on the promise. But despite all the inspiring talk about windmills and solar panels, it's difficult to see how Obama will reach that goal without relying, in large part, on nuclear power. Commercial reactors currently provide 20 percent of the nation's power—but accounts for 70 percent of the country's emission-free energy. "We cannot get to the reduction of CO2 in a big way without relying on nuclear energy even more than we do today," says Mujid Kazimi, the director of MIT's Center for Advanced Nuclear Systems.

So does that mean Obama will become the nation's cheerleader in chief for nuclear power? Not likely. Obama has been cautious whenever he's been asked about the issue. In a "Meet the Press" appearance in May, he hedged when the subject came up. "I think we do have to look at nuclear, and what we've got to figure out is can we store the material properly? Can we make sure that they're secure? Can we deal with the expense?"

It is clear that there are different arguments going on:

1) Greenhouse Emission Free Power
2) The Costs For Energy
3) The Safety Associated With A Given Power Source

Hope and Change is not going to fix this

Bush Commutes The Sentence Of A Rapper Convincted For Drug Dealing - Obama Will Have To Top This One!

The CIA switched his suitcase that was full of mix CDs for one filled with cocaine. Thus it is justice served for Bush to release Forte. I still hate Bush for all of the people that he killed in New Orleans though.

Obama is going to easily top Bush. He is going to CHANGE things by making 5 grams of powder cocaine worth a 25 year sentence while increasing CRACK's punishment from 5 grams up to 25 grams. Since CRACK is a Black drug bothers can increase their stash to 24.9 grams and not have to face the "Criminal Injustice System" at the federal level! Our communities will be strengthened as more of them remain free on our streets!!

Oh no. This might mean that John Forte will release a Bush Tribute song that tops that of Will I Am. I can't bear the thought of this one.

American presidents wield the powerful constitutional power to pardon or commute the prison sentences of any individual, but so far George W Bush has proven reluctant to absolve the boldfaced names seeking clemency from the US justice department.

Among the 14 pardons and two commutations released yesterday by the White House was John Forte, the Grammy award-winning hip-hop artist known for his collaborations with the Fugees. Forte had served about seven years of a 14-year sentence for transporting a suitcase filled with more than $1m worth of cocaine.

Forte had several powerful allies pressing the White House for a pardon, including Republican senator Orrin Hatch, who moonlights as a successful songwriter, and pop star Carly Simon, whose son was a classmate of Forte's at the elite prep school Philips Exeter. Bush and his father also both attended Exeter.

The most prominent pardon-seekers currently serving prison terms - Black, the former boss of the Daily Telegraph, and disgraced former congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham - did not make the list but remain eligible for a pardon until January 20, when Bush steps aside for Barack Obama.

Obama "Manhood Protectors" Have Left-Leaning Comics Running Scared

NY Times: Irony Is Dead. Again. Yeah, Right

Martin Luther King jokes will get you beaten up. How long will they shift from seeing Obama as a "historic figure" to a living president?

Anti-Obama Graffiti Not A Hate Crime Because The Victims Of The Damage Were Not Racially Targeted

3 US arrests over racist anti-Obama graffiti

MASTIC, New York: Three men accused of spray-painting racist and lewd graffiti on about 40 vehicles, including messages targeting President-elect Barack Obama, are not being charged with a hate crime because none of the victims were specifically targeted because of their race, a police official said Friday.

The Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate crimes, reports there have been "hundreds" of such incidents since the election, many more than usual, said its director, Mark Potok.

Certainly these "Hate Crime Laws" must be changed.
Racist attacks on our president, including any references to a "monkey" are not permissible....any longer.

Bush Or Chimp?

Young Jeezy - From Dope Dealer To Unofficial Campaign Spokesperson

Question - As an individual who's aggregate production has produced net negative impact upon the Black community what is the best strategy for redemption?

Answer: Show pride in OBAMA as your president!!

You can go from the life of a dope dealer, peddling your wares within the Black community....
From a person who was saying "F_ck The Police!" last week.......

Over to an oracle that is capturing the PRIDE that is seen in Black America because "Your President is a Black man"!

The only thing that might upset all of this is if Young Jeezy or Lil Wayne are arrested after Jan 20,2009. Then they will say "F_ck The Police but God bless my Black President. Knowing my president is Black takes the edge off of being arrested."

Eating Dinner At A Black Banquet w/ A Room Full Of Obama Supporters

"If you didn't vote for Obama.....there's still room for you at the inn". So said the MC for the night after his third reference to Barack Obama intertwined into his speech.

For some context - we must go back 4 years. I recall being at a fund raiser for a majority Black private school just a week after George W. Bush beat John Kerry. The spoken word artist who was at the mic said something to the effect of "I know that all of you share the same sadness that I do over the events of this week.......". I looked around the room and saw complete agreement. Not wanting to be the lone Pepsi drinker in a room full of Coca Cola drinkers who was not unhappy as I was told I should be - I stayed quiet. I noticed from this point that certain Black folks are presumptuous regarding the views of Black folks. Last night was no different.

My wife is a great provocateur when it comes to getting me started. In response to the mc's comments a lady sitting next to her started talking about her overwhelming joy about the Obama presidency and how great it will be for America. She made reference to George Bush, saying that upon hearing Obama talk she knew that he was night and day more articulate than Bush. My wife added some negative reference to Sarah Pailin. After their exchange my wife looked at me and said "I am surprised that this hasn't provoked my husband to say anything. I said nothing because I prefer to listen rather than confront at such a gathering. I learn far more about how people think by allowing a conversation to take its natural course absent attempts at redirection.

When my wife left the table I then responded to the woman. I asked her "Is there anything about the state of the nation after 4 years of Obama where your GOALS, having not been delivered upon you come to the conclusion that Obama has in fact not been that which you have built him up to be?". I then followed "When I say goals I mean educational improvements, employment, national security and related things."

She replied "Well George Bush failed on all of these points and yet Republicans still supported him.".

I countered "Well that's my point. First I am asking you about you and Black people, not what Whites and Republicans are inclined to do. I have to believe that you have GOALS that are independent of Democrats and Barack Obama? I have been doing research where various cities - Chicago, Baltimore, Milwaukee will have no Republicans anywhere from local office up through to the President come January 20th. Many other areas where we live in the highest concentrations have an overwhelmingly dominate Democratic control - yet these are the places where the GOALS of Black people have not been fulfilled. At what point do you shift from your excitement over Barack Obama and the Democrats over to consideration that your goals have not been fulfilled?". With my repeated references to "Democrat" I started to notice that other people at the table started tuning into the conversation.

She started to reply "Well Ronald Reagan............". Just then the MC got back on the mic and she never completed her words.

Unfortunately - as long as she and others see themselves as "Democrats" rather than as Black people with PERMANENT INTERESTS she and others will always live vicariously though Democratic growth in power that doesn't quite extend into her own community.

In the next segment of the banquet which was a fund raiser for a Caribbean youth foundation - the same Pro-Obama MC noted that their main university has 75% females in attendance signifying the great problem with our young Black males. He noted that the same challenges that we see there with Black males are also seen here in the United States with our Black men.

I am only wondering when my people will begin to see that being "Motivated By Obama" should not be mistaken as a real LOGISTICAL PLAN to actually fix the problem.

I have a challenge as a person who dares to walk against the tide. Where no doubt people have a right to be happy and proud - as they should - I am always working to translate it all into "So what does this mean in regards to actually ADDRESSING the problems that we have?".

I am forced to not go on the attack, but instead to listen, to analyze and then respond. I am not attempting to CONVERT anyone, only to force them to EXPECT and DEMAND more rather than look for the victory that "the team" is getting and mistake it for their own.

(Ironically - on the computer that I am typing this on is playing a television commercial about an Obama Victory plate.

We need to purchase a Victory plate for every Black male in America. If he eats upon the image of Obama every day - he too will CHANGE.)

Barack H. Obama Elementary School - Hempstead NY

The former Ludlum Elementary School is now the Barack H. Obama Elementary School.

It was only a matter of time. A New York school has been renamed in honor of President-elect Barack Obama.

The former Ludlum Elementary School, in Long Island's Hempstead Union Free School District, was renamed at a school board meeting Thursday-effective immediately.
School officials say most of the 440 students there are black or Hispanic, and Obama's victory is a source of great pride.

Great rating of the former Ludlum Elementary School - 5 of 10
Rating of the entire Hemstead Union Free School District - 3 out of 10

This school appears to the the type of "Segregated School" that Obama talked about inner city children being trapped in during his "Race Speech". (Please note - Despite there being DIVERSITY - Black and Hispanic - this doesn't count. With Obama and other Progressives they are talking about WHITE and then Black/Hispanic together for it to be "diversity". The infection called "Non-White White Supremacy" infects us dearly.

Other Schools In The Hemstead Union Free School District

What Is The Best Way To Increase Black Military Recruitment "After Obama"?

A protester uses his shoe to strike an effigy of President Bush, as thousands of followers of Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr converge on Firdous Square in central Baghdad, Iraq, for a protest agaisnt a proposed U.S.-Iraqi security pact, on Friday.

Bush effigy burned in anti-U.S. rally in Iraq


Tell the protesters in Iraq and Afghanistan to burn Barack Obama in effigy. This will provoke many a Negro who said "America has never done anything for me, why should I risk my life for this country" to be called into action.

They will be "Fighting For Obama!!" for he is worthy.

Barack Obama Follows Through On His "Race Speech" Concern, Don't Allow Daughters To Be Trapped In An "Inner City Public School"

Obamas chose private Sidwell Friends School

WASHINGTON - President-elect Barack Obama and his wife have chosen Sidwell Friends School for their two daughters, opting for a private institution that another White House child, Chelsea Clinton, attended a decade ago.

"A number of great schools were considered. In the end, the Obamas selected the school that was the best fit for what their daughters need right now," said Katie McCormick Lelyveld, a spokeswoman for Michelle Obama.

She said Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, "bring with them a number of security and privacy concerns that come with being part of the new first family — and the school they've selected is positioned to appropriately accommodate that."

Lelyveld said that while public schools were considered, the Obamas felt that a private school was in the best interest of their children. The two girls currently attend a private school in Chicago.

"Mrs. Obama is the product of public education on the South Side of Chicago and she believes strongly in the importance of good public schools for all kids," Lelyveld said.

Recall that Mr. Obama said during his "Race Speech":

Understanding this reality requires a reminder of how we arrived at this point. As William Faulkner once wrote, "The past isn't dead and buried. In fact, it isn't even past." We do not need to recite here the history of racial injustice in this country. But we do need to remind ourselves that so many of the disparities that exist in the African-American community today can be directly traced to inequalities passed on from an earlier generation that suffered under the brutal legacy of slavery and Jim Crow.

Segregated schools were, and are, inferior schools; we still haven't fixed them, fifty years after Brown v. Board of Education, and the inferior education they provided, then and now, helps explain the pervasive achievement gap between today's black and white students.

If on the campaign trail he asked why all Americans can't have the very same health care plan as members of congress have - I take it that such talk was a good tactic to string people along on their wants while he went after his own.

Lindsay Lohan Likes The New "Colored President" But Says She Is Not A Lesbian Only That She Likes Gay Sex

Just call her Lindsay Bunker.

Lindsay Lohan used a derogatory term for African Americans most commonly used by racist character Archie Bunker in the 1970s sitcom "All In the Family."

"It's an amazing feeling. It's our first, you know, colored president," the 22-year-old actress said in response to a question from Maria Menounos on "Access Hollywood" about her reaction to Obama's win in the 2008 presidential race.

The oft-troubled starlet muttered the offensive term in the midst of an interview about her role on "Ugly Betty," gay marriage, and cancer research.

The television interview comes on the heels of a sit-down with "Harper's Bazaar" magazine where Lohan denied being a lesbian, but admitted to being in love with her female partner of several months, Samantha Ronson.

It's going to be a long 4 years people.

Sean Combs Will Insure That Obama Supporters Smell Good And Give His Wallet A "Stimulus Package" In Exchange

Wall Street Journal:

When he launches a new men's fragrance next month, Sean "Diddy" Combs, the hip hop impresario turned marketing mogul, hopes his sales pitch will resonate with the same consumers who voted for Barack Obama.

Mr. Combs said the campaign for the $57 fragrance called "I am King," which is licensed by his Sean John fashion label to Estee Lauder Cos., will telegraph black success.

"When you see Barack Obama, you see a strong, elegant black man and when people see my ad, it's almost like that's the trend," he said in an interview.

Next month - "Just'in" time for the inauguration balls that many brothers will travel to DC to be a part of history and dance the night away.

The thought of it all:

The standard presidential photo on your wall.
A bottle of "I Am King" on your chest of drawers!

What a country we live in!

A Black man can become president and another Black man can market this fact in the wake of this event.

No doubt Russell Simmons will release shoes labeled "Yes You Can Dunk".

Opps! That idea has been taken already.

Shirley Ceasar: "God Has Vidicated The Black Folks"

"God has vindicated the black folk," the Grammy-winning gospel singer said

"God has vindicated the black folk," the Grammy-winning gospel singer said as a member of the congregation waved an American flag and another marched among the pews blowing a ram's horn.

"Too long we've been at the bottom of the totem pole, but he has vindicated us, hallelujah," she cried. "I don't know about you, but I don't have nothing to put my head down for, praise God. Because when I look toward Washington, D.C., we got a new family coming in. We got a new family coming in. And you know what? They look like us. Amen, amen. They look like us."

Church Goes Around The Nation Speak

The sad and angering part of reading this is that it shows that some people need EXTERNAL AUTHENTICATION. The bigger "validation" in my view would be to see more of our men and women reform into the traditional family unit.

One man versus the actions of tens of millions.

You Know Those Non-Negotiable Points That Blacks Used To Have? - There Gone A.O.

I have redoubled my effort to monitor the media sources that are directed toward Black people so that I can capture the key differences between their disposition over the "past 8 years" and now.

Where as I have always looked at the "civil rights community" (as defined by their blind commitment to JUSTICE) as being alligators with big teeth - ready to strike out against anything that violated their principles of justice and diversity in this society. I now get the sense that we are about to enter yet another interval in which this gator is flipped on its back and its stomach is stroked. This was the case with Bill Clinton. This is doubly the case with Barack Obama.

Remember - this blog is not "About Obama". This is an inspection of Black Folks "After Obama".

On Atlanta radio station WAOK I listened on Friday morning to the great amount of indoctrination and how things are being setup for their battle.

A Black female caller called in to slightly rebut the views of the host - Lorraine White. The caller said that DIVERSITY IN THE OBAMA CABINET if very important. His cabinet should look like America.

What came next amazed me and got me yelling at the radio.

"Dr White" said that at this point in time I am not worried as much about "DIVERSITY". I trust "My PRESIDENT" and I have faith in him that he is going to promote the most qualified people to the proper positions because he has good judgment as he has shown repeatedly".


So now we should go back to the various corporations who DO NOT HAVE DIVERSITY in their workforces and apologize to them! They too were simply promoting "the best people" into positions because "diversity is only secondary".

Next we had a caller that extolled the glories of Barack Obama "The People's President". It seems that Barack Obama has "non traditional leadership experience" per his work as a community organizer. In many ways this is more valuable than legislative experience. Gotcha lady!

Then a fast talking attorney who sounds like he is a frequent guest on the show called in. If there was ever a need for "The Fairness Doctrine" (which I do not support) this was it.

Here is the structure of the propaganda that is used by Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive-Fundamentalist Racism-Chaser:

* Extol the glories of the Democratic Party at the National level
* By all means avoid at all costs noting the amount of domination that the Democratic party has over the places where Black depression is greatest
* Constantly attack the "National Republicans". There is not enough hammering that you can do
* Finish it off by making 2 negative references to Black Conservatives. "Clarence Thomas and Condi Rice" are "the gifts that keep on giving".

If this was my only source of news about the nation - I would likely be a liberal Democrat. Since it is not - I see through the antics of these people.

What I don't understand is how Thomas and Rice - two UNELECTED BLACK PEOPLE can form the basis of so much angst from these people - yet they say little of the Black and Democrats who preside over the points which bring them so much grief

* Public Education
* Public Safety
* Local Economic Development

For these operatives the ELECTION VICTORY ITSELF was the crowning achievement and the apex of their joy. When the legislative process kicks in and all of this is indexed with the real world events of - the economy, internal disasters and external conflicts - there is simply no mechanical way for them to maintain their empty exuberance.

My key frustration is with the ARBITRARINESS by which they operate from. Absent some objective set of measures and a clear set of goals - it is easy to become an operative that is part of the team - rather than making measure of the actual progress that your people are making.

President Obama Will Ask The CIA To Release The Serum For AIDS

I monitor and record the "Bev Smith Show", the "Dr White Show" on Atlanta's WAOK and other left leaning broadcasts in order to maintain my connection with some of the popular theories that are rife within our community. Both of these talk show hosts either believe or do not challenge callers who promote the notion that THE US GOVERNMENT HAS CREATED THE AIDS VIRUS to destroy undesirable people.

First it was released upon the White gay male population. Next it was released in Africa. Now it is devastating Black Americans - gay and straight. Male and female.

I am not making light of this situation. PEOPLE ARE DYING.

What I am doing is asking the people who have been promoting these theories to MAKE USE OF THE PRESIDENT WHO 'STANDS ON YOUR SIDE'.

Tell PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA that come January 21 after he and his wife have "measured the drapes in the White House" that the first thing that he should do should be to tell the CIA and other counter-insurgent forces within the United States to release the serum which will negate the effects of the HIV/AIDS virus.

Adding to this - there should be a $5 trillion compensation fund. The family of every person infected by the vile actions of the United States should receive benefit. THE UNITED STATES MUST BE MADE TO PAY FOR WHAT IT HAS DONE TO DESTROY THESE PEOPLE!!!

All of the operatives within the United States government should be brought to justice. The same tribunal which tried and convicted all of the Bush cronies and sent Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and George W. Bush to jail for life should be used to inspect the actions of US government officials in regards to the creation of the HIV/AIDS virus.
