Just Because He Is Black!!!!

This piece is floating around out there on the Internet. It is a great response to the so-called “reverse racism” inherent in the accusations that blacks are voting for Obama just because he is black. In a few words, the response says what needs to be said. It is interesting that voting for Obama because he is black is a violation of some moral code and illegitimate. Yet, when whites say they will not vote from him because he is black, that is just the way the world is, moral code or no moral code. The authorship is unknown but given how I received it, I assume it is public domain. RGN

-Just Because He's Black

A white man asked his black friend, 'Are you voting for Barack Obama just because he's black?'

The black man responded by saying, 'Why not? Hell, in this country men are pulled over everyday just ’cause they're black; passed over for promotions just ’cause they're black; considered to be criminals just ’cause they're black; and there are going to be thousands of you who won't be voting for him just because he's black! However, you do not seem to have a problem with that!

This country was built with the sweat and whip off the black slaves' back, and now a descendent of those same slaves has a chance to lead the same country, where we weren't even considered to be people, where we weren't allowed to be educated, drink from the same water fountains, eat in the same restaurants, or even

So yes! I'm going to vote for him! But it's not just because he's black, but because he is hope, he is change, and he now allows me to understand when my son says that he wants to be president when he grows up, it is not a fairy tale but a short term goal. He now sees, understands and knows that he can achieve, withstand and do

ANYTHING …..just because he's black!'
