The New Black America: Failed Liberal Policies and More Unbiblical Polices by Akindele Akinyemi
Now that Sen. John McCain has pulled out of Michigan by doing a Rudy Giuliani routine and blew any chance of winning the Presidential election in November it's time to have a discussion on America's first Black President.
Now let me make myself very clear. I have no intention of voting for Sen. Barack Obama/Sen. Joe Biden in November. As a Christian, I refuse to support any Presidential candidate who supports abortion, feels comfortable with civil unions and have a liberal approach to foreign policy. Also, I will not vote for him because he is Black. While history will be made in November I am looking beyond the skin color.
What my biggest fear about an Obama presidency is the fact that Black people, who have been traditionally conservative on social and some economic issues, will begin to lean further to the left. The Obama machine are out here registering new young voters who have values that are completely unbiblical. These young people, some first time voters, will soon begin to run for office themselves to help shape public policy.
Do we want the new Black America shaping public policy to diminish marriage between men and women in our community because our men are on the down low and women are following behind? What about our young Black legislators now who are following Obama who want to pour more money into failing school districts in places like Detroit or Benton Harbor but refuse to support educational options sch as charter schools or homeschooling?
I am not confident in the new Black America under an Obama Administration because look at the conditions of Black America right now. Obama is preaching the same failed polices that has ravaged Black America. Now, we are going to have a liberal President, who happens to be Black, coming into the White House with the same failed polices that did not help him as a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago. Do we want America looking like the South Side of Chicago?
The new Black America will embrace Obama's Black Theology of anger, confusion and misconception as well as his call for teaching "age appropriate" sex education for 5 year olds.
Now many people will say that I am just concentrating on the negative aspects of an Obama Administration. Actually, I am just observing of what has happened in the inner city that are ran by Democrats. For example, in Michigan every single urban area I have visited where Democrats run the city looks like a third world country. The people are poor, angry, pissed off, and use Jesus Christ as a credit card (in other words use the Lord when things are tight).
Presently, I have no faith in Black people running anything. We want to support Black owned businesses but we cannot even open our business on time. We open late and close early. We fail our children's education and blame it on the lack of money. We are afraid of our own children. What's worse is when we discipline our children they can call DHS and the social workers can call the shots. We have far too much government in our homes. Blacks are confused about politics. We complain about government being in our homes but support Obama who wants MORE government in our homes.
We cry about the need for Black men to be in education then cut them out in the name of "budget cuts." While Black liberals turn out the vote for Obama these same people fall silent when adult bars flood 8 Mile Road, Chaldeans disrespect our women at the corner stores or gas stations, and are quiet on developing Black men and women who are marriageable, ready to settle down and build a legacy.
So while the Obama Administration is pushing liberalism down our throats I feel this is a good time for serious, committed Christian Black people who want to develop a sense of personal responsibility to begin a REAL movement for change.
There is HOPE.
Spiritual hope begins with us. Our people cannot continue to accept Jesus Christ as our personal savior and then put him on the shelf because Oprah has endorse a candidate from Harvard. We need to hold fast to our core values not make excuses because a Black man is running for President. Think about it. Would these same Black people who are coming out in droves vote for a Black man like Michael Steele if he was running for President?
Conservatives of all races should join together, pray together, eat together and denounce any forms of detriment that has penetrated our community. Once upon a time Black people in the inner cities could leave their door unlocked, opened and go to bed without the fear of someone coming into your home. Those days are long gone.
There was a time when you acted a fool on the block the neighbor whupped your ass then your parents got home both parents whupped your ass. Now the children call DHS and the parents are in trouble.
There was a time when you acted an ass in school you got paddled. Now, the government calls it corporal punishment.
My point is this. The Black community did not have fear of our children because we instilled the fear of God in our children. Our children were raised on values and clearly understood that if anything was in error there were consequences. Now, there are no consequences and we are afraid of our children. Our children cuss out the teacher, fight the teachers, and in many cases kill the teachers. There was a time when Black children would stand up when the teacher entered the classroom. Now school is a "boring" place for both the teacher and student.
There was a time when Black men were men in the home and took care of the family regardless of income, regardless of obstacles that stood in his way. Now, our men are at home playing Playstation, XBOX 360 and hanging out while our women are going to school, getting advanced degrees, and taking care of her home, her career and her children. Where is the balance?
When poverty programs entered the Black community back in the late 60s it was the end of our families. Now two generations later we still have not learned how these same liberal policies have not benefited us. The scary thing about this is how so many young people are so far removed from the traditional values that has kept our community intact. These young adults who are voting for Obama range from college educated to dropout, do not have a grasp on the history of Black America and how we became Democrats, second to third generation welfare families, gay, lesbian or transgender, angry, depressed or just hate Republicans because the media hates Republicans.
Do we want government to continue to take care of us for another generation? With an Obama Administration and the ushering in of a new form of liberalism like we have never seen I feel that the New Black America will still reside on the plantation. Where do conservatives fit into the grand scheme of things? What about traditional values that will be thrown out the window with an Obama Administration? This is the same Obama that has never led a city, state, county or village before. He has never led a people in crisis. He has never administered a budget. He has never been in the military, never led in a war, never been a commander in chief or even a Private First Class. He has been in the U.S. Senate for 143 days and thanks to the media, he will be the next Commander in Chief because the liberal news media need the ratings to keep sponsors pouring in the money.
How many young adults who are going to turn out the vote in November for Obama even realize how he even became a U.S. Senator to begin with? The Republican opponent, who was leading in the polls, was forced to leave race after unsealing of divorce records exposed a sex scandal. Obama defeated Alan Keys in the general election to win the U.S. Senate race in 2004. If his opponent would have still been in that race Obama would not even be running for President.
How many young people know that Obama's brother in lives in a hut in Nairobi on $12 per year? Obama is a multi-millionaire from his book sales. Sounds like another John Kerry.
And while the New Black America clowns Sarah Palin as being a country "hick" how many Black people knew Sarah Palin's passed a landmark ethics reform bill, used veto to cut budgetary pending and prevented the "bridge to nowhere" that would have cost taxpayers $400 million dollars while Obama as an Illinois State Senator voted "present" over 100 times.
And while Sara Palin exposed legal violations and conflicts of interest of Alaska Republican leaders and campaigned against a corrupt GOP Representative Obama launched his political career in home of unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and purchased a home with the help of convicted felon Tony Rezko.
And while Sarah Palin gave birth to her 5th child with Down Syndrome Obama was the only IL State Senator to speak against the Born Alive Infant's Protection Act, which required medical care to be given to live infants who survived abortions.
And while Obama talks about the environment alot Sarah Palin was the Chair of Alaska Conservation Commission back in 2003-2004. She also announced plans to create sub-cabinet group of advisors to address climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Alaska.
And while Sarah Palin supports the 2nd Amendment (the right to bear arms) Obama worked to pass legislation in Illinois that would prevent all law-abiding citizens from owning firearms.
And while Sarah Palin actually have some executive experience (Mayor of Wasilla, AK and Governor of Alaska) like I said earlier, Obama has never led a city, state, county or village.
And while Sarah Palin's husband Todd Quit 17-year BP oil job when BP became involved in natural gas pipeline negotiations with wife's administration Obama's wife Michelle was promoted and given 160% pay raise by University of Chicago hospitals within months of husband's election to U.S. Senate as well as U of C's $1,000,000.00 federal earmark, requested by her husband, after her promotion.
I am scared to see a Black liberal run our country because it will be ran in the ground just like the South Side of Chicago, Detroit, Philly, or other inner city hellhoes that are ran by liberals. If Obama is giving earmarks to his wife's employer that alone is a conflict of interest. What next John Edwards as our Attorney General? That may happen also. The Fall of America will not happen under the White man watch but the very person that looks like us.
But as usual, young adults do not care about that. They are emotional and not logical. And this is the reason why the Bible is fulfilling prophecy day by day. I just pray that we can make it for the next four years as conservatives.
