Since most people of color are too P.C. (read: scared) to say it, I will go ahead and get this off my chest; there are some pissed off white folks in America right now. Now whether that makes me laugh or once again consider burning a few flags just for fun, I’m not sure yet, but I’m glad as hell Obama won and it has everything to do with what I believe the second term of his presidency will bring.
I expect he’s not going to play as nice with the Republicans and Dixiecrats who stood in the way of progress for the past 4 years. Now that it’s been made VERY clear that he didn’t get into office on some Affirmative Action fluke, it might not be so seemly to literally hold the country, and its citizens, hostage on the basis of ideology. And nothing made me skip with more glee then walking into my office and looking into the face of every. single. Republican with a smug satisfaction.
Today I walked the walk of the uppity negro. The only thing that kept me from giving middle fingers was the supreme urge to keep my job. For now, we have a president who views our macrocosm as a pragmatic which I much prefer over some spoon fed jerk off who thinks you can run a country like a mergers and acquisitions firm and treats citizens like mere opportunity costs to his “real” constituency; corporate America. And coming from someone who loves her some corporate, I definitely recognize how the culture of short term gains and brutal greed has permanently altered the American philosophical, economical, and spiritual landscape.
If Fundies were half as concerned about greed as they are about sodomy in my bedroom, I might take them seriously. And like these Deep South apologists who try to pretend “state’s rights” doesn’t mean “putting niggers/fags/women in their place” plenty of Right Wing pundits have reasons for why the GOP lost the race, but my favorite HAS to be Billo’s. I mean, the man literally bleeds elegance.
I’m in ur country, messin’ up ur traditionz.
