Called Game Change from the 2008 election cycle. Have caused a firestorm in the media.
Michael Eric Dyson and Jonathan Capehart was on Morning Joe, now the networks get to trot out all of our So Called Black Leaders that want a dialog on race relations in this country.
They feel that now is the time for that conversation. We have been trying to have this conversation since President Lincoln. And it always turn out badly.
Dyson on Tamarin Halls show also said President Obama runs from the word race like a black man running from the cops. His exact words. Which I think is derogatory itself. Speaking about the President.
Maybe he do shy away from the race card. And he should in my opinion. Dyson is a pain in the ass. I've followed him for years, and now I am starting to lose any respect I've had for him. Our President have mega problems on his plate. He do not have time to jump into a dialog about race that will never be solved anyway. And waste time that is needed for jobs, healthcare and education. Please......
Dyson and others with the same agenda need to give it a rest. It don't help the black agenda, it only hurt it at this moment in time, when there are wars, job loses, lack of education among other things the President have to deal with.
If Dyson and others want to do something, get out there and rally the Blacks, poor Whites and Hispanics together to march for healthcare, and jobs that are so needed.
It will be the start for the news cycle for a few days. Then the networks will say that's ok and pull any reference to race off the boob tube. Or if it looks like it's to many black opinions coming forth, then they will say that's enough, and pull it.
Professor Dyson said President Obama stated " He is President Of All The People" true, but he incorrectly stated that President Obama has not addressed the black population as of yet pertaining to jobs.
I've been writing about this. African Americans, are low in rankings within the job market. They have always been low. With all the advantages that are out there for blacks, in education and job training. They need to get up off their ass and take advantage of it.
All the Senators and Congress have been putting pork laden projects targeted at Blacks,Poor Whites and Hispanics. In every bill that have passed the Congress and Senate. Since President Obama have been in office. If a person read the bills as I do they will see it.
It is against the law and the Constitution for any President to dictate funds to a certain group of people.
In which President Obama have not done, and continue to stand by being President of all the people.
It's said in the book Game Change about the 2008 campaign quotes Mr. Reid as predicting that Mr. Obama could become the country’s first black president because he was “light-skinned” and had “no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” Here are some sites with articles.
Morning Joe on MSNBC devoted a whole show to this book and Harry Reid's quote. Wanting a major backlash. That did not happen. Only by media people.
And will not happen, so they can put this to bed, if President Obama don't care, why should anyone else. It was said about him.
Sure for years, within the White and Black communities the unsaid info is that a light skinned black can get ahead in business and politics, before a dark skinned black will. It's true, have been true. And because someone voiced that info publicly. Some people want to have something negative to say.
Us blacks have been Negro's, African Americans, now Blacks. White Folks, have always been White Folks. Blacks have different shades of skin color. Which in my opinion make us a pretty good looking bunch of people.
Is that why the tanning booth business is booming with white people trying to get tan's so they won't look so pale or white? So what is wrong with Senator Reid speaking the truth about President Obama being light skinned, more well spoken and educated and more accepted as such to the American public. In which what he said proved to be true.
Senator Reid could of phrased it a bit better, but what he said was true, and ment to be a compliment.
Now would anyone, and I mean anyone, would of backed Michael Steele as President? Hell NO. Not because of the color of his skin. But because of his stupidity and lack of a decent english dialect. Black, White, Light Skinned etc no way. And everyone know that he is the Republican token black for their party. They thought they had a Barack Obama in Steele to counter Obama. But within a few days they knew their plan had went to hell, backfired when that nut and clown Steele opened his mouth. Embarrassing not only the Republicans but the Blacks as well. I cringe when ever he is on TV.
Race will continue to be a problem in America. With or without President Obama. Because blacks and whites will have a problem with color, religion, social status, and many other social agenda's in this country. This is what democracy is all about.
Everyone is different, that is what make America great. But just because we have the first Black President does not mean he have to spearhead a whole new black revolution. Such as what people like Dyson want. America have to many other huge problems to fix right now.
If Dyson and his counterparts want a dialog on Black America then they should take the reigns and start it. What is their excuse? Don't expect the President to do it, because he should not have to.
There are 1000's of wonderful educated black professional men and women. More than ever before. Dyson should gather 100's of them together and go into the black communities, to help inspire our youth. Educate them, and help to give them the same hope to succeed that was given to him. Then I will take him more seriously.
