I Take Exception, Mr. President

Mr. President, I take exception to your leadership.  I feel it is flawed.

You are supposed to be MY president.

My fellow Mustang buddy’s president.  He’s Black and has a doctorate.  Oh.  He’s married to a Middle Eastern lady – who screams while sitting shotgun in his grossly overpowered car.

My neighbor’s president.  He’s Hispanic, an American citizen and is in the USAF (and who got his pay cut due to The (Dumb) Sequester.)

My blogging friend’s president.  She is Irish with blazing red hair.

Yes, even #41 and #43’s president.  They are Caucasian and BOTH served in the Armed Forces.  Hell, #41 was shot down and lost his two crew members.  Like Old Man Jack, even he must’ve had nightmares for the rest of his life.

You are the elected person to represent ALL of us…together.

But do you?

Yes, I voted for the other guy.  Glad that’s out in the open.  Whew.  Now hate me.

But all through your campaigns and years in office, you have made it a point to distinguish (imply?) yourself to be Black…and rarely or never infer that you are “White”.

How can that be, Mr. President?  Your mother was White.  Your father was Black.

To me, that’s 50%-50%.

It’s simple math.  The same simple math taught in school.  Well, pardon me.  Not too many folks recall seeing you in class.

Perhaps you ditched classes, Mr. President, just like my angelic oldest daughter..?  But my oldest daughter got straight A’s.  I’ll let you see her report card if you’ll show me your transcripts.

So I excuse you on your mathematical error.

Trayvon Martin died on February 26, 2012.

On March 23, 2012, you said on national TV:

“But my main message is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon. And I think they are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves, and that we’re going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened.”  (Note: President Obama, the LOCAL authorities and DA DID get to the bottom of exactly what happened shortly after the shooting, right?)

After the verdict was read, you made another statement.  On July 20, 2013, you said:

“When Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son,” Obama said. “Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.”

The Zimmerman/Martin fight took place in a smaller township called Sanford, FL.  The local – LOCAL – authorities concluded there was not enough evidence to hold or charge Zimmerman under their STATE laws.

But alas…  The MEDIA was a huge contributor.  In my opinion, it was primarily CNN who started a fire where there should have been none.  Day after day, they tried to “stir the pot”, as they say.  RACE came into the limelight thanks to CNN fueling the self-grown fire.

Then Obama’s ill-advised comment…  RACE again.  He’s HALF-WHITE.

______________________

Race is one thing contributing to the deepening divide amongst our citizens.

In his first speech, he fueled the frenzy with those words, “…and that we’re going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened.”

Who is “we’re”?  Him?  The Feds?  It fell under state and LOCAL jurisdiction.  And the local law enforcement and DA – closest to the case and evidence – had closed its case.

Obama and CNN was pouring copious amounts of salt onto a festering wound.

By the way…  How does CNN pick which murder to sensationalize?  Why didn’t CNN sensationalize this more recent one – of four Blacks killing an unarmed White college student:

I am curious why you did not come out in front of our nation and say, “If I had a son, he’d look like Joshua Proutey.”

_____________________

In closing, how DARE Obama distinguish himself from me implying Trayvon Martin could have been his son – for whatever reason – in front of our country.

You are supposed to be MY president.

You are to lead us… represent all of us… and not imply “favoring” one race over another.

How do you bring this together instead of dividing it?

Simple.  Like this:

THIS is how YOU should lead OUR country, Mr. Obama.

Face it.  There are racists.

White people who hate other races.  Blacks who hate other races.  Asians who hate other races.

Lead us.  Tell us citizens to quell this lunacy…and get off the minority soap box at the same time.

ps   PLEASE PAY MY USAF BUDDY.  HE IS IN HARM’S WAY AND WORKING TO PROTECT US.  HE IS NOT HOLDING HIS HAND OUT LIKE 47 MILLION OTHERS ARE.

  1. OMG! Koji, you brought tears to my eyes. Our Country is more divided than ever. Our President has made statements that were inappropriate for any President to make and it goes on and on. No, I didn’t vote for him either. When he was first elected, I thought how wonderful for our country to have the First Black President! Not my choice, didn’t agree with his political issues, but ok, let’s see how he can make a grand difference. Epic fail.

    Then to see him elected AGAIN?! For what? What good has he done to be reelected?

    1. Wow… Thanks, Shar! I wanted to say something the media and defense hid from the general public… How they castrated the accused – even when CNN and other media would show an innocent child Trayvon’s school picture next to the vilified Zimmerman… How they said all Trayvon had on him was Skittles and “iced tea”… It was NOT as innocent as HOW the media CHOSE to report facts. That the 17 year old’s LIVER was damaged from a concoction which would cause hallucinations and cause aggressive behavior… Watch: http://www.ijreview.com/2013/07/68300-whittle/

    1. Thank you so much, Patty. It means a lot to me. May I suggest trying that link in my reply to her comment immediately above? It will be enlightening, I’m sure…down to the Skittles certain news outlets highlighted on (implying he was a child)…

      1. You are welcome. Thanks for allowing me to re-blog. I probably should have asked permission. I was telling my brother-in-law about your post and put it on my blog for his convenience in finding it and, of course, because I liked your points. Does it matter whose son a crime victim looks like? Is that how we decide if the jury decision was wrong?

      2. It’s a free country thanks to folks like Old Man Jack… No permission needed! Yes, your last points made via questions are exactly the point. You make me feel good about lawyers again! Lol

        ps Please take a peek at the link I inserted in replying to Sharon’s good comment above.
