For decades white men have been awaiting the evolving of the black man. Usually stereotyped into such roles as the step-and-fetch-it submissive post-civil war Negro, or the violent, drug dealing Super Fly, the jive talking ever-hip huckster, the daughter raping threat to the community, the black power fisting Black Panther, or the gang banging, good for nothing ghetto dweller there were for decades no other images available to represent black males until recently.
The cultural, hard working, intelligent representatives such as the Washington Carvers, the Langston Hughes, and the Frederick Douglases were seen as being freaks, abnormalities.
Now, after decades of social advancement, we finally have a black man who has achieved the unthought of attainment of becoming the President of what at present is the greatest nation on earth.
Not only that, he is articulate, compassionate, sensitive, educated, intelligent, far-sighted, healthy, clean cut and a family man. Above all he understands the needs of normal people regardless of their race.
All of the qualities the white race has wanted to see in a black man Obama represents. And how are the white power guys reacting to him now that he has finally taken a place in our society?
"Tear him down!"
"Ruining the country!"
"Send him back home!"
Hmm. People want something, then when they get it they still aren't satisfied. With so little reward after adjusting to the expectations of the white race they, like spoiled children, don't want him. Should the Afro-American male return to the subcontinent ways of voodoo, witch doctors and playing football without padding? Nope, that would be counter productive. They might as well jump ahead of the white guys putting them down. It wouldn't take much.
