THIS JUST IN: Obama is NOT Jesus…


Peace Cool World,

I may lose a few readers for what I am about to say. I may be condemed to the depths of hell…my “conscience” card pulled right from under my fuzzy afro’d head. BUT I GOTTA SAY IT!

Barak Obama IS NOT JESUS!


I repeat…Barak Obama is not the Son of God returned so save us (color’ds and po’ folk).

  • November 5th is NOT that Great Gettin’ Up Mornin’ (fair ye well, fair ye well). At least not as far as I know.
  • You will not wake up after his inaguaration to discover that your 450 credit score is now 748.
  • Your will not automatically qualify for that car loan so you can cop that Magnum or Compressor or what ever.
  • You will NOT be able to drive said car through white suburbs after sundown without the neighbors calling the police…and if you are on the eve of your wedding and in a bourrough in NY…you may very well get shot up for it.
  • Koreans will CONTINUE to follow you around the hair/corner store
  • The Iraqis and Saudis and Lebanese will STILL have two liquor stores for every six fourth graders in the neighborhood.
  • Colt 45, MGD, and Martell will still have huge bill boards posted exactly 501 feet from the middle school.
  • Your car insurance will STILL cost more becuase you live in an URBAN area.
  • You will not awake on Nov. 5 fo find that grocery stores offering affordable, healthy, non-genetically altered food have appeared in every black and working class neighborhood. Well… maybe in Chicago.
  • And white men will still call you “sistah gurl” or “girlfriend!” or “brotha man“and say “Oh no she di’n’t!” at the most inappropriate times.
  • Sure, his picture may be added to the holy trinity on your grandmamma’s dining room wall…Martin, Jesus, Kennedy (or Malcolm depending on her level of blk nationalism) and now Obama. But all this confirms is that they WILL in fact attempt to assasinate the brother. It DOES NOT give him messiah status.
  • He cannot not turn water into Remy.
  • He cannot walk on the flood waters of Katrina or Ike.
  • He will NOT sign a bill to officially cut through ALL RED TAPE (i.e. Bullshyt). America is still as much a beauracracy as it is a democracy.
  • And no matter WHO wins the election…SALLIE MAE STILL be on my ass like McCain on Geritol.  

So I’m sorry to break it to you Cool World, but Barak Obama is NOT Jesus.

What Barak Obama IS is a politician. He is an intelligent, qualified and capable politician…(who can count on my vote on November 4), but he IS a politician none-the-less.

Don’t get me wrong…I have Obama Fever just as much as the next one…but I also recognize that HE is not the answer to the faulted SYSTEM. He is a band aid. He is a SYMBOL of the plight of Blk America and working class America. So…lets not get too carried away ladies and gentlemen. HE CAN WIN! He CAN bring change…but maybe not the kind of DRASTIC change that a lot of folks are hoping for..wishing for…
‘Cause truth is…Barak Obama is NOT Jesus!

    I agree. I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed when they realize how much won’t change. Barack Obama is indeed a great symbol of how far our country has come, however, we still have so far to go. Nothing wrong with having hope, but putting godly expectations on the shoulder of one man is not only unfair to him but naive.

    Jesus he is definitely not and politician he is, but I believe that he is perfectly positioned, at this time in history and in this place, to get us reengaged. He may not play the part that most are expecting him to play, (no president can clean up Bush’s mess in four years), but what I think he will do is put us on the track to address the issues we have been been leaving for others to fix. Our horrible inner city school systems, our repressed and unrepressed racism, personal responsibility, and our communities. In the end these are not things he can fix anyway, this is our responsibility. Like any leader he is mainly just a part of the team. More then anything he will show us that he is not the one we have been waiting for, ‘we are the ones we have been waiting for’!
