This older white guy asked his older black friend, 'Are you voting for Barack Obama just because he's black'?
So the older black guy fires back and says, 'Are you not voting for him because he's black?
Why can't I vote for him just cause he's black?
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, but you don't seem to have a problem with that.
This country was built with the sweat and whip off the 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. A country where we weren't allowed to be educated, drink from the same water fountains, eat in the same restaurants, or even vote, so you damn right I'm going to vote for him!
But not just because he's black.
But because he is hope, he is change, and he now allows me to understand when my grandson says he wants to be president when he grows up, it is not a fairy tale but a short term goal. Now he sees, understand, and knows, he can achieve, withstand, and do anything just because he's black!
You know...I've been trying to watch these debates and trying to really understand what is going on and I feel like the biggest idiot in the world!!!
Why is it that the answers to the questions are not clear to me from EITHER party?
Why can't there ever just be a yes or no answer?
Why is there all this long winded explanation which then makes me forget the original question to begin with!! Ya know???
It also leaves me extremely confused as to who or which way to go!! I'm even confused on the fact of if I'm still registered or what!! Does anyone know how to find out? I've never really voted before and the way I'm feeling now, not sure if I'm going to again!! I'm just not sure that my one little vote is going to make that big a difference! I've learned to just make the necessary adjustments and deal with whatever is going on!
Does anyone else feel the same way or am I alone with this??
