One of the things that really pissed me off during the election was the widely stated belief that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton had it so easy, because he was black and she was a woman. The same was said about Justice Sotomayor. This belief is generally spoken by older white males. Quite honestly, how the fuck would they know?
I would just like to present some of the ridiculous things that President Barack Obama has had to put up with. I argue that all of these accusations are in some way related to the fact that he is black. These are things that he would never have to put up with if he were a white man.
1. That he has deep-seated racism for white people.
2. That he doesn’t wear a jacket in the oval office and is thus disrespectful. Somehow, no one said a thing when white guys did it.
3. He was asked if he ever dealt drugs.
4. That he is going to indoctrinate children with socialist values. Again, no one made a peep when white guys did it.
5. That he’s a secret Muslim.
6. That he’s not a U.S. citizen.
And so on and so forth.
