Congratulations Senator Obama

One of the things that honestly made me laugh during last night’s election coverage was when they showed Jesse Jackson ‘crying with joy’ after the news came in that Obama had won.

I turned to Sunny and said “Well, he’s changed his tune.”

Just to remind everyone, Jesse Jackson was the one who not too long ago was criticizing Obama for ‘not being black enough’ saying ‘He talks down to black people’…and in an outstanding gaffe said “I’d like to cut his nuts off.” when he didn’t realize his microphone was on.

I honestly dislike Jesse Jackson, simply because I believe he’s doing just as much to keep racism alive and well as any white supremacist.

I honestly wonder if that’s the reason he was crying. Not because he was so happy at the incredible milestone of our first black president…but because now that there’s a black man in the Whitehouse, the vast majority of his hate speech gets shown as the hollow, overblown rhetoric that it is.

In other words, Jesse Jackson complaints that opportunities are closed off to black people because whitey is holding them down…his opponents can simply point to the black guy from a ‘broken home’ who is currently the most powerful man in the free world.
