Your Papers Darkie

Last night I debated back and forth whether I would write anything about the "birthers" and the release of the President's birth certificate.. Yes it's a hot button issue for the Repub/Tea party members but for the life of me I can't understand WHY?!
If you've been missing from the world in the last few weeks donald trump a candidate for the republican nomination has been speaking out his ass on a daily basis about President Obama's birth certificate and his legal right to hold the job. When he first started I was sure that eventually the news media would try to just squash this but it's continued and people are actually taking this seriously. *SIGH*


 Where are we? South Africa in the 70's, or the USA in the 1800's, will all people of a darker hue need to start working around with their "Free Man" papers. This (as well as the request to see his grades) is outrageous and a flash back to when Black men had to prove that they were indeed free by providing papers.
A time when Black people were looked at as cattle and property unless by some mistake they were freed and  could reach for the so called American dream.

On some levels I wish President Obama had never released his birth certificate and told them to go F$%K themselves, but I have to believe that he just wants it to stop. Because if it stops we won't be blinded by this reality show "Republican party nominee" but start pay attention to the real issues like the fact that the Ryan Paul budget will be voted on stripping middle class and poor people of necessary programs. I have to believe that like Martin, Malcolm and many others he is willing to sacrifice himself so that we don't get left behind fighting for the wrong things. I have to believe this in order to not lose my shit every day as I ride from the suburbs listening to the white people tear down the President for no other reason that his skin is dark. I'm sure there will be some naysayers that believe this is wasn't about race, but these people are idiots. This is NOTHING MORE than a White is Right, Black is WRONG issue. In the history of this country no other President has been asked to provide any proof of where they were born, or how they became a great student and graduated magna cum laude from any university. They were just accepted low C average, southern farmer drawl and all.

I listened as  Goldie Taylor spoke on The Rachel Maddow show about her article on why he shouldn't have shown the birth certificate and what rang out most to me was this " When they say the want to take their country back, they mean from us"....

The END

It totally pissed me off - I am so ANGRY at Donald Trump, NBC and the rest of the idiot news media that allowed it to get THAT FAR. Its just so WRONG. I was RANTING in my kitchen the other day, then laughing my ASS off when I heard our President say, "side show and carnival barkers". It was awesome. Then that fu&%er pissed me off again with his, "hope it checks out beautifully" crack. Hey Donald, are YOU going to personally have it inspected. F-U!

Sorry, I think I am as mad as you are.

Girl, this whole mess needs to be thrown completely off everyone's radar. Trump is an idiot and an elitist.

I Tweeted yesterday that a little piece of my soul dies every time the POTUS waivers to those dunderheads. *smh*

@MommyLisa I'm glad you're as outraged as I am. It's really the most ridiculous thing ever.

@Smarty I have to disagree we need to pay attention to this nonsense because it won't stop here. And with him going after his grades and not being acceptable for Harvard he's attacking all of us who benefited from Affirmative Action. Not to mention he's been attacking Black men for a LONG Time here in NYC.

Smarty P. Jones said...

He is attacking a lot of us, but his attacks are turning out to be fruitless. I think his whole purpose is to provoke the POTUS. The way the POTUS can attack back is to ignore the ignorance and do his job. He's going to have to stop being so damn accommodating to these dumbasses.

Sigh. My reaction to this bullshit pretty much echoe's the others.

Why?

Was this a "here you go, now shut the fu#k up" move by Obama or was it done in a ploy to regain the appeal of the masses for re-election?

Who knows but whatever the reasons, it doesn't change anything because in the eyes of America the Bigot's, he's still a N in te White House.

I just really wish he would man up a little.
