America's First Black President: Been there, Done That

103 Years of Prominence
OK, here we are. We have as a nation of alleged "racists" our first black president. The most obvious and burning question, then, is this: has it changed anything? My answer may surprise most of you, and it would be a resounding "yes"!

I could follow up that first paragraph with a litany of rhetorical questions, but it would be a waste of time and an exercise in futility and redundancy. But there is one question that must be asked in response to the previous one...has America been magically "healed", as we were led to believe it would have been? That one would elicit an equally resounding "NO"!

It is an interesting paradox that leads us up to the 103rd Annual Convention in Houston of the N.A.A.C.P, at which Republican candidate Mitt Romney is scheduled to speak on Wednesday. Ahead of the convention, the Liberal media is working full tilt to paint Romney as "so white he makes white bread look like pumpernickel", something that should realistically scream "racism" to any normal, thinking person, but which somehow, mystically does not. But the kicker is yet to come.

Romney will speak tomorrow to the group regardless of the liberal media's criticisms, and he will make his pitch on the economy and the tragic unemployment rate among blacks and minorities in general, something on which Obama has been given a pass by everyone in the media. But Obama was also scheduled to speak at the convention tomorrow, speaking to "his people", if we are to buy into the stereotypes set before us by the very people making the accusations of racism against us.

What's particularly intriguing is that Mr. Obama will not attend, sending in his stead his whiter-than-white vice president, Joe Biden. (Heck, even his hair is white)! Got that? We have the so-called "mainstream media" wailing about a white Republican candidate addressing the N.A.A.C.P. because we have a black Democrat president, but they don't mention that the black Democrat president is sending an even whiter Democrat proxy.

For those familiar with my writing, you all know well my fondness for irony, and this is a banquet of the grandest proportion. But wait, we're not done! The feast goes on, praise the Libs.

Our Attorney General, Eric Holder, (he's black, in case any of you missed it) has been a valiant champion of minority rights against "voter disenfranchisement" in those "redneck states" that are requiring photo identification as proof of identity in order to perform an American's most cherished right; the right to vote. It seems that AG Holder (D) thinks that "po black and asian folks" is too dumb to get their pitcher tooken! All of my ethnic friends have a driver's license already, so it's not an issue.

Mr. Holder spoke today at the N.A.A.C.P. convention about this very pressing issue, decrying the racist right wing for trying to frighten away those citizens simply seeking the truth and the exercise of their God-given rights as citizens. What were the required credentials -- in a voter ID state like Texas -- to see Holder speak? How about a government-issued photo ID and a second form of identification?

If irony were a meal, I'd be loosening my belt right now.
