In regards to President Obama finally putting to rest the Racist claims that Blacks are inferior and stupid and unworthy to serve as President of the United States by releasing his long form Birth Certificate. You by now know the story, a lot of Blacks –90% of whom still believe that Whites are Superior to Blacks and that Blacks are helpless in the face of all mighty Whitey– objected to the Racists forcing a Black President to show his papers like he was a free Slave. I disagree.
First of all if you or me lived in 1899 as Goldie Taylor’s grand mother’s great grand father did you would have believed as they did that Whites were superior and that nobody Black could ever defeat someone White to become President. But if you still believe that in 2011 then I’m sorry you’re not thinking clearly. I acknowledge that Blacks in 1899 and on up to today in some places in the South would have to show their papers or face death at the hands of White Racists and in many cases even if you did have your papers wouldn’t spare you if you were Black. What we witnessed yesterday was not that.
Sure that was the racist Donald Trump’s motivation, his hatred and disdain for a Black President. Trumps quick rise in popularity among Racists and Whites who aren’t Racist –but simply believe a Black President is too much of a threat to the myth of White supremacy– proves that many Whites still believe in the myth. But no, President Obama’s success was the direct result of his embracing his Black race and culture and his rejection of the myth that Whites are superior. This is the first important difference.
That the President decided when and where to release his paper work is the second major difference. The third major difference was that the President released his birth certificate to expose the myth that Whites are superior and embarrass and one up the racists of the GOP. Finally the impact of Trumps embarrassment and humiliation of Donald Trump will have positive lasting effects. Nobody will soon forget that the President called the racists bluff and the racists blinked which prevents them from having any credibility for such future requests. The President won big by his actions a fact lost on racists who will never be convinced of his legitimacy but one that in this reporters opinion did Goldie Taylor’s Major Blackard proud.
