The Obama Problem – Part 1

With a black President in the White House, many people ask me if there is really a call to hold on to the Oreo way of life. Hasn’t America changed to the point where we’re all equal and it’s irrelevant to figure out a way to skirt prejudice and self loathing.

Simply: Are you kidding?

There are two main reasons why Obama does not pose a threat to those who choose to maintain their Oreo pride.

1. He’s half white. And was raised by the white side. This clearly affected him in a way positive to society at large. For example, though his name is certainly not in the  mainstream, it’s more foreign than black sounding. Do we really think that America would have elected him president if Ann had let him be named LaTron, Darnell or DeShawn Connerique?

2. Who do we have to thank for Obama’s upbringing? Not the indigenous brown folks who originally inhabited his home state of Hawaii. They’re notimages the ones who keep that island economy running. Who does? Wealthy white tourists. Sans their support, Barack could have grown up underprivileged, his family out of work and certainly not been able to hop on that path to greatness.

Thanks, ruling class. We owe you one.

  1. Not sure on this one. I wish I had found this site a little sooner. Personally, I think slaving longer in school would have killed me. I had plenty of time to learn to dodge spit and learn how to fall down stairs and not break any bones. All that training was killing me. I think sitting longer in school would have possibly killed me. How much more could I hear the phrase “You are a perpetrator!”, no matter how much I explained they were using the word wrong. If that they had to use “trator” maybe they meant just plain old traitor, or at least infilitrator but I’ll steer clear of that discussion.

    How much longer would I have to use my own personal mental power to push the clock foward. Oreo’s like me know that it is not in their best interest to sneak books anywhere in the vicinity of said instigators. My own personal fans are rough and books of any kind could set them off to rampage. Now sneak to the library totally acceptable. Stuff in a corner somewhere reading “The Hobbit” or a comic book now that brings me back.

    How is Obama considered black? Like I stated before I dated a melanin rich girl whose adopted parents were white. RBGs espouse the belief that she was not really black. So in other words I am still looking for my first black President. Next time Huntsman all the way baby! Dunk it, O-R-E-O.
