I was going to write that our next president was sure to be white, but since Hillary Clinton just lost it, with Wisconsin her ninth loss in a row, and Hawaii soon to be number ten, the contest as always will be between two white males.
John McCain and Barack Obama.
I sense incredulity amongst my faithful readers.
Both of you.
OK, pink then - bright red when he gets mad – but totally white on top.
But given the racial conventions of today, McCain is considered white.
Barack Obama is an easy one to call too.
His mother was white.
He married the mother of his children – before their children were born.
(The black marriage rate is only 35%, compared to over 70% for whites)
(75% of black children are born out of wedlock, compared to 22% for whites)
He attended and graduated with honors from Punahou Academy, a prestigious private school in Hawaii.
Obama studied at Occidental College in Los Angeles for two years. He then transferred to Columbia University in New York, graduating in 1983 with a degree in political science.
(White males are almost twice as likely as Black males to complete a Bachelors degree or higher)
After graduation he had full-time jobs until he went back to college in 1988.
(Black males are over twice as likely to be unemployed as Whites)
Obama entered Harvard Law School in 1988. In February 1990, he was elected the first African-American editor of the Harvard Law Review. Obama graduated magna cum laude in 1991.
(So far Obama's career path seems to be right out of the Upper-Class White Person's Guide to Success - just like the Clintons, Bush 1, and Bush 2, all Ivy Leaguers)
He worked as a lawyer in Chicago, and taught at the University of Chicago Law School.
He was elected to the Illinois State Senate in 1996.
So Obama, with his white mother, white education, and white cultural ways would not be considered a Black by Blacks. In fact, Blacks consider Bill Clinton the "first Black president," and would not even consider Obama the second.
Let's face it, it's racist to consider someone with as little as 1/16th Black blood to be Black, yet that's what we do.
Great shades of apartheid!
However, Blacks are not the only race to be treated in this fashion. Native Americans are Indians with only 1/16th Native American blood, as Chinese are Chinese with just a trace of Chinese blood, and so it goes and goes.
Since Obama is half White, and follows "Whitey's" ways, he's what Blacks call an "Oreo," black on the outside and white inside. Only in his case he's half white on the outside, and all white inside.
I guess that makes him a Twinkie.
