This sound like the speech Barack Obama gave on the eve of him throwing his hat in the three-ring circus of the election for CEO of America Inc. You could not be more wrong. This was a speech delivered 36 years ago, by one Shirley Anita St. Hill Chisholm, pioneer, warrior and the first African woman to attempt purify that den of inequity called the U.S congress, and the first African woman to run for CEO of the Corporation.
Like Obama, it was initially seen as a hopeful step by “one-of-us, by some-of-us, the disposes, the unrepresented, the marginalized in the African Community. In fact, Chisholm’s decision was so odd that she wasn’t taken seriously, until she started shaking up the old boys club.
In her biography-The good fight- she wrote, “In this country everybody is supposed to be able to run for president, but that’s never been really true. I ran because most people think the country is not ready for Black president, not ready for a woman candidate” Shirley Chisholm paved the way for people such as Jessie Jackson in
Shirley Chisholm paved the way for people such as Jessie Jackson in 1984, Carol Mosley Braun and Al Sharpton in 1994, Dr. Lenora Fulani and now Obama.Today 2008 in the Roman Calendar–6248 – in the ancient Calendar of Kimit, Barack Obama’s nomination was initially given the same reception by the establishment knee-grows in the corporation called the United States. His so-called “blackness” was questioned despite his long established work in his Chicago neighborhood.
Her “African-Americaness” was questioned, because she was a child of the Caribbean, of Barbadian and Guyanese parent.In a day ad time when every body give lip service to, “we will see the day when a black man can run for president”, coons and buffoons like Russell “step-n-fetchet” Simmons and Robert ‘Nigger Charley” Johnson can come out publicly, to dis Obama. As Russell says…”I think about one-fourth of his campaign contributions came from small donations made over the Internet, even though he collected more than any other. Democratic candidate from Wall Street people. So at the end of the day, he’s controlled, too. That’s my point. He’s a mouse, too, like everybody else.”
This comes from the mouth of a coon who is owned by a Khazaar (Rick Rubens the real brains behind Def Jam Records) who was seen on a T.V during an interview telling the “boy” to get his foot off a coffee table. Then you have “Nigger Charley” Johnson, who publicly went off on Obama here, as he whored himself for Hillary Clinton. The same Bob Johnson who single handedly reduced years of African struggle for world wide acceptance to jigga boos and thugs, hoochi mamas and “superheads”, on his Bullshit enabling tell-lie-vision (BET).
When certain “colored” people like Ass-senio Hall as “our Black President” anointed William Jefferson Clinton, I almost blew a gasket. Even today, I try not to personally kill a knee-grow upon hearing that derogatory statement. However, upon hearing former Atlanta mayor Andrew Young say that Bill Clinton was more “black” than Obama because he fucked more “black” women, you know hell is freezing over!Now I think any sensible woman or African who tries to join that sinking ship call the “American presidency” is a fool and a tool, because that is a symbolic post and you really don’t run shit.
However, with the kind of Obama bashing we are seeing, is instructive regarding the civility of the people living between the soon to be dissolved borders of Mexico and Canada. You have a supposed female author and expert on “blackness” (whatever the hell that means) going in front of massa, questioning Obama’s “blackness.´ And we wonder why we can never get a fair shake from many Anglo-Saxons or any other none Anglo-Saxon, fighting for a piece of that rancid pie in America In. Recently even this piece of tripe has showed up on the internet from the New York Post as the Obama bashing continues. James Baldwin once said, “When the enemies come against me it makes me stronger. When my people come against me it weakens me” All I got to say to you knee-grows, coons and buffoons out there is
