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.

I don’t normally complain about walmart, I never complain about the one I worked at near my moms home, but today I had a bad experience and I think it’s something that is happening everywhere not just at walmart.
My sister and I went in to recycle our pop bottles and we did okay, but the machines kept filling and the poor girl in the back could not keep up. There were many other people waiting their turn but some just gave up and left. When I went in because the machine wouldn’t take some of the bottles they sold there was no people greater, turns out she was the girl in the bottle room. So I went to the service desks and complained. I was laughed at and told to leave my bottles next to the podium they have. I was not happy since I was laughed at for trying to help them.
Anyway eventually they got someone at the door and I got a slip for the bottles. The other good news is that the store manager came out and fixed everything very quickly, I know one person I used to work with saw how upset I was, she may have had something to do with the manager coming out.

I’ve been reading articles about Obama and how people don’t like him because of his paster, many are saying he must believe in the same things? But the truth is he doesn’t have to. Most of my friends growing up were drug addicts and sex crazed teens. I wasn’t I’m still not that way, but because that was who I grew up around you would think that would be the case.
Not everyone follows what the adults around them when they children do. Most learn from the mistakes, ideas and values of these people and decide for themselves what to believe. At least in a normal world situation. Is his paster a very outspoken black man who may believe that everyone is against black people. Maybe, but that doesn’t mean Obama is that way.
I think what bothers me most about this is not that I now support Obama and I’m worried he won’t win the nomination, but that I’m so tired of people judging people because of who they knew when they were a kid or who that talk to now. How do you know they didn’t see something in that person and want to help them become a better person.
