Racism Alive and Well in America

From The Boss:

NOTE:

· Racism - the prejudice that members of one race are intrinsically superior to members of other races

· Racism - discriminatory or abusive behavior towards members of another race

It is now January 22, 2009, two days after Obama took the oath which put him into the highest political position in this county.

If you have watched TV at all in the past two days you have seen the clips from some of the supporters of Obama. Jay Z and his rap song "My President is Black" is tantamount to racism.

This rapper was front and center during the inauguration as Obama took the oath. Has Obama given up one racist (Reverend Wright) for a younger, more visible racist who has the attention of every black young adult? Is this the music he lets his young daughters listen too? Are these the people who will be spending the night in the Lincoln bedroom?

What happened to Obama and his verbal spewing that we "all" have to get along and move this country forward?

If these are people he "hangs" with on the weekends then I say to you that the summer of 2009 will be a replay of the summer of 1968 that I saw in Detroit.
