“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
Students held big protest over the re-election of President Barack Obama Tuesday night on the University of Mississippi campus. Why did this happen folks? This is crazy. (Read story from washingtonpost.com right here)
Tonight was a very happy night for me as I sat and watched the first African American President of the United States Barack Obama, win re-election to a second term as President. I never thought I would see a African American President, now he has four more years!
To see President Obama walk on stage before a wild and cheering crowd in Chicago with First Lady Michelle Obama and their beautiful children, it just made me very happy. And if you are a supporter of the President I am sure you are happy too because in my opinion it would have been a huge mistake to elect Mitt Romney.
If Romney was elected it would be President George W. Bush all over again. Romney said if elected he would make cuts to Medicare, Amtrack, Planned Parenthood, Social Sucurity, FEMA, food stamps and much more. It would have been terrible. How anyone would vote for Romney is beyond me readers. But then again Romney had Fox News on his side led by Sean Hanitty.
I watched Fox News after CNN said that President had won and this crazy Karl Rove was making excuses and was saying he did not think the President had won yet. Rove is crazy! Can’t wait to hear Hannity cry like a baby because his guy Romney was beat. But you can bet that Hannity will continue to talk negative about President Obama on a nightly basis during his second term just like he did during the first term.
Finally, as I watched the crowd when Romney gave his speech after his loss, I could not see a black face. It was a sea of white faces. The Republicans need to realize that America is not all white. It is a melting pot of African Americans, Asians, Latinos, East Africans etc. The right needs to start RIGHT NOW to reach into the black community and latino community etc and show that they care about our plight in America.
Romney won big time in states like Arizona and Utah and Montana and Wyoming where there is hardly a black face in sight. The Republicans have have a long long history of not reaching African Americans and people of color and showing us they care about us. When you watched the crowd in Chicago after President Obama won you saw whites cheering, Asians cheering, East Africans cheering, African Americans cheering,
This is America folks. And on November 6th, Americans voted for President Obama to serve four more years. He has a lot of work to do. People need jobs etc but I think the President will try to work hard to improve some of the problems that are going on today. Hopefully the Republicans will FINALLY work with him because so far they have not. I am happy that President Obama won a second term now as Big Ed says on his show on MSNBC “Let’s get to work”

ARTICLE FROM huffingtonpost.com (Full story click here)
BREAKING NEWS: Because of Hurricane Sandy all events have been put on hold by President Obama and Mitt Romney. The President has to be the President in charge the next few days.
If you have kept up with race for President between President Barack Obama and former Gov. Mitt Romney then you know the issue of race has shown it’s ugly face again and it’s ugly folks. Real ugly.
People like former Gov. John Sununu, Ann Colter, the son of Sen. Tony Thompson, Sarah Palin and other folks have shown that just because we have had a African American President for the last four years it does not matter. Racism is alive and well in America and it is truly truly sad. And it upsets me.
Gen. Colin Powell came out the other day and again put his support behind the re-election of President Obama. Then Sununu who is one of Romney’s tops aides, came out and said the Powell is supporting the President because he is a fellow African American. That is a bunch of BS!!
Then Ann Culter calls the President a “retard” Also former Gov. Sarah Palin says the President needs to stop “shucking and jiving” A very racist term that goes back decades. And Sean Hannity has the NERVE to say the left is playing the so-called “race card”.
And Thompson’s son said in a meeting that he hopes the President will get beat so he can go back to Chicago or maybe Kenya!! This is TERRIBLE!! What kind of off the wall comment is this readers?
First of all readers, this term “race card” is ONLY used by non-people of color. You have never heard a African American bring out the term “race card” If you have PLEASE let me know. Why is this term used against black folks? It is just like the word “thug”. It is used almost 100% of the time against African Americans and people of color. This is real talk!!
And keep in mind folks that President Obama has been fighting racism since day one by Fox News and right wing radio hosts like Mike Savage, Laura Ingraham, Mike Medved, and even John Carlson here in Seattle. It has been this way since the President and his beautiful family moved into the White House.
So with a few days to go before election day, we are getting plenty of reports of African Americans and the right playing games with our votes just like in 2000. So that will be what I will be writing about in my next story. Stay tuned! Gordon Curvey
