Defining Black Identity From a White Perspective

Chain letters… Oh how I hate them…

I received this chain letter and on any other occasion, I would have discarded it before reading.  Except I noticed that someone had “replied to all” about the letter and the response looked pretty juicy, so I gave in and read.  Oh wow, I was happy I did:

 

 

 

Jack Wheeler on the O-Man
JACK WHEELER is a brilliant man who was the author of
Reagan’s strategy to break the back of the Soviet
Union with the star wars race and expose their inner
weakness.  For years he wrote a weekly intelligence
update that was extremely interesting and well
structured and informed.  He consults(ed) with several
mega corporations on global trends and the future,
etc.   He is a  true patriot with a no-nonsense approach to
everything.  He is also a somewhat well known mountain
climber and adventurer. 

Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler 

The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently
tailored empty suit.  No resume, no accomplishments,
no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of
how the economy works, no understanding of how the
world works, nothing but abstract empty rhetoric
devoid of real substance. 

He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he
rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he
hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic
surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way
to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in
Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from
his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is
exclusively. 

What he isn’t, not a genetic drop of, is
‘African-American,’ the descendant of enslaved
Africans brought to America chained in slave ships. 
He hasn’t a single ancestor who was a slave.  Instead,
his Arab ancestors were slave owners.  Slave-trading
was the main Arab business in East Africa for
centuries until the British ended it. 

Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of
slaves, he is the descendant of slave owners.  Thus he
makes the perfect Liberal Messiah. 

It’s something Hillary doesn’t understand – how some
complete neophyte came out of the blue and stole the
Dem nomination from her.  Obamamania is beyond
politics and reason.  It is a true religious cult,
whose adherents reject Christianity yet still believe
in Original Sin, transferring it from the evil of
being human to the evil of being white. 

Thus Obama has become the white liberals’ Christ,
offering absolution from the Sin of Being White. There
is no reason or logic behind it, no faults or flaws of
his can diminish it, no arguments Hillary could make
of any kind can be effective against it.  The
absurdity of Hypocrisy Clothed In Human Flesh being
their Savior is all the more cause for liberals to
worship him: Credo quia absurdum, I believe it because
it is absurd. 

Thank heavens that the voting majority of Americans
remain Christian and are in no desperate need of a
phony savior.


His candidacy is ridiculous and should not be taken
seriously by any thinking American.
Pass this on to every thinking American you  know!

 

 

Better yet, “Pass this on to every RACIST thinking American you know!”

I do enjoy that this argument supposedly came from Jack Wheeler, a white as they come white, explaining just how “unblack” a black man is (please excuse me for not being PC in the use of the words “white” and “black”).  Reminds me of the film we saw in class about the Black Actor’s School.  In addition, I do not think it is accident that this white republican mentions that Obama is Arab and then goes on to explain that his popularity is cult-like.  I believe it is to remind us of the misunderstanding, and therefore fear, of radical muslims or terrorists.  Because only people of the Middle East would violently act out for religious sake, right?  I mean, I can’t think of a single instance in history when a white American acted out violently on another race or religion based on religious beliefs…

Isn’t it time- “for God sake”- to let go of the silliness that is racism and for once just look at people as people, and thats it?  Regardless of your political views (I know choosing a political candidate is very personal and so I won’t even go there), I think our country has gone through enough bullshit to continue to waste our time and energy on ripping apart people based on elements THEY CAN’T CONTROL.  Not one single person can predetermine their race, sex, sexual preference, or outward appearance, so why waste our breath?  This way of thinking is so outdated.  We Americans should be better than this.

*I haven’t researched to determine if Jack Wheeler did indeed write this but I still believe this important to discuss because this argument is meant to be portrayed through the eyes of Christian, white, Republican.  Don’t get me wrong, these are not bad characteristics, just giving you one pair of eyes to read with.

    While I myself do find this chain letter, and others like it, to be extremely racist and laughably silly, I have to remind myself that in the US…no, all over the world there are people who have radical ideals like these and make up all kinds of outrageous lies in order to spread their opinions. One of the big problems with the world today is that despite having so much information available at our fingertips, many people choose to remain ignorant. Since the people choose to remain ignorant about much of the world around them, they become much more likely to believe things like this letter. The problem with letters like these is that there are actual people out there who know nothing about Obama and then read this letter and believe it without background checking the information in it. Some of these people are truly just ignorant, while others may already be heavily biased and just take it as face value because Obama is not white.

    Unfortunately, While I do believe that people’s attitudes towards other races are becoming better, especially because of globalization, I do not believe that one can truly ignore racism, or discrimination of any sort for that matter. We can never truly ignore the differences between human beings, no matter who we are or where we live discrimination is inevitable. After all, it is in man’s nature to seek the paradoxical goal: to stand out from others, to be different from everyone else while still belonging to a group. This need to be unique creates animosity between groups and prevents any “true harmony” between peoples. And while one form of discrimination may disappear or lessen over time, discrimination will probably never go away. Society has tried to eliminate it throughout the past, whether through rights movements, or the formation of “utopian societies,” throughout the years humans have tried time and time again to ignore petty things like discrimination, and all have failed.

    I’m not saying that we shouldn’t try to make the world better; I believe that the pursuit of the impossible is one of the things that bring out the best in humans, and is one of the noblest paths that humans can take. I am simply saying that discrimination is an ever changing animal that we will never be able to destroy as long as we are around.
