The other day I was watching the news and they had a thing about blacks in America and how this election could bring about more problems that do good. It seems that many blacks figure that nothing is going to change. I remember hearing one man I went to school with talk about how the only way that a black is going to make it in the world is to act white. Now personaly I take offence to this as not every white acts the same, many try to act “black” in some peoples eyes.
Here is what I think. We are all human, there is no difference we act how we act. Obama is acting like a politicion. He speeks well and dresses well. How is that not acting like a person. Apparently some blacks think it’s a problem for a black person to speek and dress well? Give me a break! Now before you go off on me wondering why I’m rasist, I’m not. I’m just stateing an obvouse thing here. It seems that whenever a black person makes it by haveing these attributes other blacks feel they have to put them down. This also happends with white people. Mostly when a “white trash” person makes it big.
One person I know said something that would work for any race, “If black people would stop complaining I wouldn’t hate them so much, they are annoying!” Now replace black with any other race and it still fits. We all have our issues and concerns. I think instead of making it a black vs white issue maybe we should just make it a whole society issue. Once we can stop reverencing people as a race and as fellow American citizens maybe something good will actually be accomplished.
