Date Line April 12, 2007
Seems Barack Obama has now interjected himself into the IMUS controversy .
News report: “Democrat Barack Obama (news, bio, voting record) on Wednesday became the first presidential candidate to call for Imus to be fired. "He didn't just cross the line, he fed into some of the worst stereotypes that my two young daughters are having to deal with today in America," said Obama, the only black candidate in the race.”
Barack Obama has played the “black leader” race card. Again, we have the test of honesty and fitness to lead a diverse nation – how has Barack reacted to the language in hip-hop and gangsta rap?
Has he been insulted? Has he seen the derogatory description of his daughters – the stereotyping by blacks of their own people and cultural contribution?
To gangsta rappers, all black women are wholes and their audience, their people, their race, are all niggers doing dope.
But, as we have seen in all those who profit from racial and religious differences – bigotry by their own is acceptable, those outside their community and target constituency (those whose pockets they raid for to enhance their personal wealth) who repeat their language become political sound bites to profit from.
Barack is now dead in the water and his campaign is beginning to sink. _____________________________________________________
