The Root Just Had To Mess With Obama


So I stopped by The Root to read  Rebecca Walker’s blog,  and this is foolishness I am greeted with on the front page. Do I really have to say that this isn’t funny, or even a little bit cool.  When you have people that are organizing on facebook for an impeachment, setting fires, and hanging nooses it is certainly supportive to portray Obama, THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT like this on a black blog?

After Barack worked so hard to send a message of inclusiveness, while putting up with continual racist attacks, JIM FESTANTE posts images of Obama that include almost all of the racial stereotypes that have been associated with black males.  Presented this way it looks like he is another jive nigger on the make, instead of the leader of the free fucking world.

BLACK PEOPLE STOP SABOTAGING US. God damn, seriously. Can you not be satisfied with the blacks that play sambo for pay without adding that image to a man like Obama?  The world is looking to Obama to present a new image and you in your wisdom decide, nah fuck that lets shuck and jive for a laugh,  When The Root goes wrong the smell is more stank than bad milk in a July heat wave.
