No Love For Susan Rice, She’s An Obama Parrot

By Walter L. Hilliard III

The last time I heard U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice blabbing in detail on TV, she was defending Barrack Obama for ignoring Black people like some Democratic Plantation Mammy.

I could care less if Susan Rice becomes Barack Obama’s next Secretary of State or not because every time I’ve heard her speak, she says nothing original and parrots democratic dogma, playing Obama Ball to the peril of Black people.  Rice is reflection of the plague of the superficiality of American politics.

Sure, she’s being picked on because of of her race  — but she signed up for the phoniness of national politics.  So, when you buy into a career of social climbing in the democratic party, you get what you pay for.  She doesn’t “cry” for Black people or their condition: double unemployment, a million Black men in prison, and the continuing American legacy of “thriving” Black ghettos.

So to you, Susan Rice, good riddance!  At least I know the RepubliCons don’t like my Black face — but the Democrats, your party, led by your president, the top phoney baloney, smiles in my face while stabbing me in the back with their free hand.

Sincerely, your Black brothas and sistas fighting “real racism” in these American Streets.


Be Inspired: Talent And Persistence

Walter L. Hilliard III, Excerpt From An Inspirational Book I’m Writing: 

Talent And Persistence.  Sure, talent can carry the day when it has been a discovered and nurtured; however, it is persistence that will endure the night, the dawn and eventually give life to yet another day, yet another chance for your talent to rise and see the light.  Talented Black people, or any people, cannot wait to be discovered and nurtured by the dominant culture; they must be self-sufficient and persistent.


Obama Gives Romney A Beatdown

Obama Wins!

Well, for whatever it’s worth – I called it, Barack Obama won, getting 303 electoral votes (needed 270) to Mitt Romney’s 206.  Even though I don’t believe the race should have been as close as it was – and it was only close because of race; minorities stayed away from Romney in droves – the fact that the Republicans were primarily responsible for tanking the economy in 2008, as well as their indifference towards minority groups and women, really hurt the Republican cause.

So the RepubliCons went down in flames and their Voter ID push, and other obstacles, didn’t work.

In regards to battleground states, , although the race was close in all, Obama won Virginia, Florida, Ohio, new Hampshire, Colorado, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Nevada, only losing N. Carolina 50.6 % to 48.4 %.

The old school guard, Donald Trump, called the election a “travesty” and a “sham” because Barack Obama whipped his guy, Mitt Romney.  Funny.

And showing her determination, a young Black mother, with contractions five minutes apart, rushed into her voting center to vote, then returned to her car and drove herself off to the hospital (uhmmmm . . . where’s Poppa Bear?; never mind).  She said she wanted to set an example for her unborn daughter.

Republicans are going to have to redefine and/or overhaul their party by facing their racial demons, at least to the point that they can sincerely work with minorities to bring minority voters into their party.  Latinos are the group they may have their eye on, but Florida’s Senator Marco Rubio, for example, is not enough and doesn’t appear to really relate well to the diverse Latino population outside of Florida’s “White” Cubans (at least they see themselves as such).  In fact, a Media-Latino Decisions poll says Obama won 75 percent of the Latino vote.  Other polls show the president received 70 to 79 percent Latino vote support, depending on what your looking at.

I’m no Obama fan, but I’ve always said choosing him is better than Romney running the country.  But what’s intriguing is that in 2012, why is it that Black interest still have to ride in the back of the Country Bus?  Why is ignoring Black people’s problems, while acknowledging gays, conservatives, women, Hispanics, and others, a winning proposition?  Or is it?  We don’t know because Obama never acknowledges us; and he only acknowledged Trayvon Martin after outrage started building and guilt slowly entered into his consciousness.

So my question is: will Obama do something about the Black-on-Black violence in these cities (send in the National Guard), our double and triple unemployment, as well as 50 percent of our teens being unemployed, the million Black men in prison (and high Black female population), and the 28 percent Black poverty rate

Or maybe he’s even more entrenched in his mindset to ignore the issue of Race?  And if Black people lack the common sense to demand better — giving Obama 96 percent of their vote — then they shall not have better.  Too bad for our children.  You’d think we’d be better role models after 500 years.

OBama Will Win Because GOD Don’t Like Uglier

Walter L. Hilliard III

Barack OBama and his Democratic Party are nothing more than the lesser of two evils — or, the “lesser of two uglies” — when it comes to selecting who the masses should vote into the presidential office, but RepubliCons will accelerate our country’s path to hell in a hand basket.  You know, Rome also thought it wouldn’t fall?

One would think that Bush and the RepubliCons facilitating Wall Street and big business stripping away their investments and 401 Ks, as well as bringing our economy to it’s knees, would be enough to chase down, try, and convict any RepubliCon that dare show his face and run for congress or the office of the president, but, nah . . . .  So this  shows you that most Americans still don’t “get it” that the RepubliCons don’t care about the masses, but the truth is, neither do the Democrats.

Still, if you know one party, the RepubliCons, actually love the Banker Robber Barons, you at least don’t let them back into power.

Yes, part of Obama’s problem is that people know he and his Democratic Party aren’t that different from the RepubliCons.  He knows, too, that’s why he was suspiciously quiet during Occupy Wall Street when you’d think he’d be up there leading the charge.  Also very telling was the fact that he said he wasn’t going to chase down and prosecute the Wall Street crooks guilty of helping ruin our economy, and he brought crooks like Timothy Geithner, the Secretary of the Treasury, into his administration.

Because President Barack Obama has gone out of his way to alienate his strongest base, Blacks, who have voted for him at a 95 percent clip, and he behaved like a wimp when dealing with the indifferent conservatives who hated him, he is now in a real race.  Not to mention he inherited a bad economy from a RepubliCon, Bush, that is from the very same party he’s in a tie against.  Had Obama done more for the masses, especially the middle class, when he had control of congress and took his case to the people to shame his RepubliCon Obstructionist, people would have respected him more, particularly the independents, White women, and young people.

Obama had the momentum to change the face of the country when he came into office but revealed he was just an elitist, too.  And at the worst time, he goes into a debate and acts like he was high or drunk, and resuscitated a dying Romney campaign that was never really a challenge to him.

As you know, I’m no Obama or Democrat supporter, but he’s not quite as bad for the American people as Romney.  Personally, I believe that things have to get worse before they get better and they will get worse if Romney with Romney in the long run, because he’ll live off of an economy on the rise (Wall Street and the housing market, for example), but eventually once we return to normal, which is the typical, elitist system that’s favors corporations, we’ll be headed for disaster again in a few years.  If Obama wins, we’ll maintain a system that will do a few good things for the middle class here and there, but we will still be a distant dream from our potential as a growing nation that’s ready to take the powerful interest of money out of Washington or handle diversity.

So Obama failed to create true reform on Wall Street and he avoided the issue of race like the plague.  Thus, things will be the same as they ever was, especially for Black people.

But what’s really going on with America is racism.  There is no question that Obama’s policies have the country on the road to recovery, and that Romney is a typical RepubliCon elitist.  So you have to hold the masses of American Whites accountable for its racist feelings rearing their ugly head throughout the Obama administration, and an AP poll says as much, that 51 percent to 57 percent of White Americans have racist, or anti Black views.

So Romney, who changes his mind like the wind and reeks of elitism and doesn’t care about the middle class, is in a dead heat against a Black president he should not even be close to competing with, except for the fact that he’s White.  In fact, Whites are making excuses as to why the should vote for Romney.  In 2008, Obama received about 43 percent of the White vote.

The American people should be saying to themselves, if they elect RepubiCon Mitt Romney, fool me once, RepubliCons, shame on you — fool me twice, shame on me.
