America has never been ready

Posted by Media Outrage on February 9, 2008

Barack Obama

There are certain statements that when made really can irritate our ears because they just don’t make real sense. 50’s recent comment about America not being ready for a black president are now at the top of our list. Here’s why that statement that we hear a lot from our own people no longer holds weight and is probably just an excuse or psychological manifestation of one’s own fear and very present slave mentality.

Let’s examine this statement that every one and they mamma has heard since Obama announced that he was running for the highest office in the land. We want to first say that America has never been ready. America was not ready to abolish the very lucrative and extremely inhumane African Slave Trade, but they did and it still continued. America definitely wasn’t ready to stand behind the Emancipation Proclimation but they did and our people were still held in bondage. America wasn’t ready to allow us to vote, be educated, integrate schools, own land, realestate, or ride at the front of a bus but they did and do you know why? Because our people sacrificed their lives and fought with every bit of their beings to be equal which by the way is every individual’s God Given Right. America wasn’t ready to stop the lynchings, fire bombing of our churches, houses and schools but they did because we fought for change. America wasn’t ready to issue us our civil rights but Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Medgar Evans, and many more laid down their lives to attain it. So it just gets beside us when we hear our own people say ‘America isn’t ready for a Black President’ and ‘they would kill him or her’ well for the leader of any nation the threat of violence is significantly higher than the normal citizen but we can’t allow fear to cripple us from pursuing our goals and passions. America wasn’t ready to give women the right to vote and now Hillary Clinton is running for President of the United States. Change. So step out of that box that was molded for you and remember that just 40-50 years ago things were a whole lot different for us but look at things now because of change. America wasn’t ready for Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali, Jessie Owens, Marion Anderson, Oprah and a whole long list of others but they made it and took it period. So let’s stop making that senseless, powerless, and super ignorant statement about a ‘Black President’. Remember Fear cripples and Faith heals. Bottom line you shouldn’t give a damn if America is ready or not.

So if we had a black president I could only amagine what the world would turn like! I dont even want to think about it, and half the balcks think whites “OWE” them because of the slavery but there were white slaves to and still are in some countries. GET THE HE** over the we “OWE” you blacks shit!

    a child have experience? no we learn on the JOB! Just as Clinton( the male)
    Bush and Regan. Hummmm…Are they saying Bush KNEW he would put us at war when he was running for his current position??Did he have experience in this department?hummmmm….

    I know what people mean when they say “America isn’t ready” because I’ve said it myself. It just means that there are too many people who see him only as a “black” man, too many people who will or will not vote for him, based only on his looks, which is dumb as hell, but its the way it is. But maybe you are all right when you say its about change, because this man seems to me to be very intelligent and in the right direction, maybe he will be the key to eliminating racism. Equality isn’t here yet, but its in the future. But equality means ALL people are equal, NO segregation of ANY kind…my mom wanted to join a quitting smoking group with her new boyfriend, but they turned her away for being white, its still racism. My daughter is 7 years old and she learned about Martin Luther King this year, I asked her what she learned about Abraham Lincoln (my favorite president) and she said they didn’t teach anything about him. I find that insulting, he died for freedom and equality too and he was white. I hope that if Obama becomes president, people don’t expect him to do special things for just blacks (like hire snoop dogg to work as vice president, lol, my apologies if that joke was in poor taste) but for him to do right by ALL American people.

    Some of these comments are so ignorant they’re almost funny. Listen people if you’re going to blatantly showcase your racist views then please don’t appear twice as stupid by using incorrect grammer, and simple spelling errors. Nicole I’m surprised you own a computer and even more surprised that you know how to use it! That’s amazing that you have electricity in that backwood, inbred West Virginia trailer home. Veronica, you have your facts a little misconstrued. Lincoln didn’t free any slaves, and he damn sure didn’t die for any! Signing the Emancipation Proclamation and having sharecroppers work for free is a contradiction. Lincoln didn’t die for equality either. There was nothing equal for African Americans in this country in 1865. I support Obama because like Oprah stated he is brilliant, but I realize he is only a man. No one person could be the key to ending racism. It’s taught and passed down from one generation to the next. I somewhat understood the person who left comment #6″Obama”, but he lost me after his medication wore off. Listen people, like the writer thoroughly stated America has never been ready. We have the chance to put a brilliant man in office who happens to be African American, and at the same time make history.

    Terrorism has its origins in racism, so if we are not ready to eliminate racism let us be content with terrorism. In order to preserve democracy we cannot continue to eliminate or restrict the rights of any single person. Wake up America, we need to “live together as brothers or die together as fools”.

    ITS NOT ABOUT A BLACK OR WHITE OR LADY OR MAN
    ITS ABOUT WE NEED SOMEONE TO LISTEN
    I HAVE TRIED BOTH THE BLACK AND THE WHITE AND NEITHER LISTEN
    DO YOU WANT GOODNESS OR JUST A FIGMENT IN YOUR MIND?
    AND SOME PEOPLE THINK THAT BLACK PEOPLE CAN MAKE A COUNTRY SO GOOD THEN WHY HAVENT THE BLACK COUNTRIES SHOWN THAT????

    ITS BECAUSE IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BLACK OR WHITE!!!!!!!
    IT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE GOOD AND THE BAD
    THE RICH VERSES THE POOR
    AND MOST OF ALL …. THOSE THAT DO FOR MONEY OR SEX VERSES THOSE THAT DO JUST FOR THE GOOD!!
    ….CAUGHT ALL OF YOU ON THAT ONE!
    BUT I DONT CARE ABOUT TRIPPING ANYONE UP.. I CARE ABOUT GOODNESS!
    WE ARE ON THIS EARTH FOR A SHORT TIME WETHER YOU ARE BLACK OR WHITE … WE ALL WILL PERISH IF WE DONT ALLLLLL HELP ONE ANOTHER
    THE BLACK THE WHITE THE MALES THE FEMALES THE SPANISH THE RUSSIANS THE GERMANS THE AMERICANS THE CHINESE JAPANESE AND ALL !!

    IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT CAN HELP THAT..
    IMAGINE THIS…..
    THE USA WAS BUILT ON THE FACT THAT WE COULD BUY OUR INITIAL HOUSES AND THERE WAS A STAIRCASE EFFECT WHERE THE PEOPLE NOW SELLING THE FIRST HOME WOULD MOVE INTO THE NEXT AND SO ON…
    COSTS HAVE GONE UP TOO HIGH NOT FOR THE RICH SIDE BUT FOR THE POOR SIDE…THUS MAKING IT TOO HARD FOR THE POOR TO AFFORD THEIR FIRST HOMES STOPPING THAT STAIRCASE!
    NEVER WILL THE ECONOMY MOVE RIGHT OR ANYTHING ELSE UNTIL WE PUT AN ACROSS THE BOARD LEVEL OF INCOME FOR EVERYONE THAT HAS TO BE SPENT ON THE NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE!
    how can you do that you say? easy!!!
    ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS PUT OUT A DEBIT CARD FOR USE BY EVERYONE …
    LIKE AOL PUT OUT THE CDS FOR FREE WHERE YOU USED AOL FOR FREE
    BUT THIS WILL BE A DEBIT CARD THAT WILL HAVE 2K ON IT THAT CAN BE USED FOR THINGS LIKE GROCERIES AND CAR AND HOUSE PAYMENTS AND CLOTHES AND BILLS…..AND EVERYONE THAT USES THIS WILL HAVE A SAVINGS ON WHAT THEY SPEND ON… THE ONLY THING IS YOU WONT RECIEVE THE SAVINGS ..WHAT WILL HAPPEN IS THE SAVINGS WILL BE PUT INTO A FORCED MATRIX ON A SEPERATE PART OF YOUR DEBIT CARD
    SO BY YOUR 5TH LEVEL OF PEOPLE UNDER YOU YOU WILL HAVE MADE YOUR ENTIRE 2K BACK THAT YOU SPENT! MAKING IT SO THAT YOU HAVE ANOTHER 2K TO SPEND AGAIN AND AGAIN…. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THE LAST ROWS OF PEOPLE IN THE MATRIX WONT HAVE ANYONE LEFT TO BE UNDER THEM …. BUT I HAVE THAT FIGURED OUT TOO! THE FIRST PEOPLE ARE THE ONES WITH THE MOST UNDER THEM … THOSE FUNDS WILL BE PUT IN INVESTMENTS… THE PROFITS FROM THOSE INVESTMENTS WILL PAY THE LAST ROWS OF PEOPLE …
    THUS THE ONLY MONEY BEING SPENT FOR THIS IS
    1. SAVINGS AND 2. INVESTMENTS
    THIS MAKES IT SO THAT EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY OR WORLD CAN HAVE A CONTROLLED MINIMUM AMOUNT OF MONEY COMING IN AND ALLLLL THE MONIES WILL BE COMING FROM SAVINGS OR INVESTMENTS MAKING IT NO COST TO ANYONE JUST SAVINGS AND INVESTMENTS!
    AND THE ECONOMY WOULD FLOURISH BECAUSE WHEN PEOPLE ARE SPENDING ON THEIR NEEDS ALL THE SUPPLIERS OF HUMANLY NEEDS WILL DO WELL

    YOU MIGHT SAY THIS WILL MAKE IT SO THE POOR WONT HAVE TO WORK AND WHO WILL DO THE MENIAL JOBS? WELL I HAVE THAT FIGURED OUT TOO
    WE CAN AUTOMATE ALL THOSE JOBS NOW
    AND THEN MAYBE PEOPLE WILL START DOING THINGS FOR GOODNESS INSTEAD OF JUST TO SURVIVE… THEN I CAN SHOW YOU HOW THINGS REALLY ARE NOT WHAT THEY HAVE TO BE BECAUSE OF MONEY..
    WHY DO WE FIGHT BECAUSE OF GAS???? WE CAN USE WATER!
    WHY DO WE KEEP DRUGS GOING WHEN WE CAN USE NATURAL SOURCES
    WHY DO WE FIGHT ONE ANOTHER TO SURVIVE WHEN WE SHOULD BE HELPING ONE ANOTHER TO LIVE
    WE SPEND ALL OUR MONIES AND EFFORTS ON STOPPING BAD INSTEAD OF STARTING GOOD!

    People, who is it that protects all, and against Him there is no protect. Say: God. So will you not worship Him then?
    Fear Allah Almighty God the World Greatest Most High Exalted Creator & Ruler of the Universe. Who will destroy all countries & nations that will not worship Him only showing Superior {Power & Strength} the All-powerful Lord God? Who has no son name Jesus or no wife name Mary. And it is a sin to say so. Will you not take heed? To Allah alone is true worship due. He alone is worthy of exalting to the highest highs of glory, honor and praise. It is “Allah” who warns you all before destruction (to repent) and fear His exalted (Power). Or be destroy by Him with: Fires and Smoke, Winds, Thunderstorms and Flooding, Mud, Snow and Hailstorms, Earthquakes, Tornados & Hurricanes and many others destructions by Lord God. Allah, let misery & misfortune falls on those that will not worship Him only.

  14. Marvin Shorter, Jr, said

    On 9/11/01, Allah, “Lord God” being all-knowing and wise had ordain by decree that George W. Bush is to receive His revelations to give to the leaders of the United Nations: {The Egyptians Black’s Testimony of Aminah}. To put them and America under Him protection, he refuse bring the destruction of 9/11. One plane crash in Jerusalem, two-airplanes crash into the Twin Towers in New York City. Also one plane crashes into an over field, and one plane crash into the Pentagon. Now George W. Bush sitting in a elementary class seeing that the revelation of Lord God is true. That America is unprotected by Him for worshipping the mortal man, “Jesus”. The sacrifice that “Allah” do not like giving Him a son in His worship and in His praise. That is the sin before Lord God. Who has no son? Bush, said: rout the planes away from our monuments. And rout them over the cities and shoot them down over it. Caring nothing about the people who voted him into office? While he’s in the taxpayers jet safe, now Bush feeling like a fool, having no proof, who did 9/11. To save his job framed: Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. Now for the victim’s family of 9/11, he had them to sign papers saying: they will not suit them. He refuses to pay them letting misery fall upon them forcing them to sign. Allah Almighty God please forgive them and grant Your exalted peace.

  15. Marvin Shorter, Jr, said

    Black people, have you no sense about their laws? Two men had an argument: George H. Bush and Saddam Hussein. And then parted way, one told the other not to come back. So he went home and told his son, George W. Bush about the argument. So his son deceive his friends into go after the man who argue with his father, to kill him. They could not find him Saddam Hussein, so they killed his sons. Is this not premeditation murder? Now the Americans soldiers having the feeling of unrighteous sitting heavily upon their hearts, who had just killed two innocent men who did nothing to them. Bush had deceive elementary schools children into write them letters. Saying: thank you for protecting us! Making those that did not want to fight, fight. Who are being killed in dishonor before, God?

  16. Marvin Shorter, Jr, said

    On {3/19/03}, George W. Bush & the (Christians) United States government will be crucified. Their hands & feet’s will be cut off on alternate side in America and the United Nations for deceiving the Americans people & the United Nations. Saying: that Saddam Hussein {has weapons of mass destruction} to take his missiles. “Satan” had to attack quickly to deceive the Americans people and the United Nations into mass murder in the name of terror, for world domination. They bombs Iraq unmercifully killing a multitude of people, men, women and children, unnecessary, They bomb their radio & television stations, their government building, their apartment building, mosques, schools, hotels & hospitals. Satan was trying to make rise the Holy Bible of damnation in Iraq and to steal their oil. Because he saw in reading the scriptures: {The Egyptians Exalted Testimony of Miriam}. That “Allah Almighty God” the World Greatest Most High Exalted Creator and Ruler of the Universe is coming to put me over the United Nations.

    People, have you no sense? Can you not see? God has declared peace and your leaders have declared war, those who you voted into office. Who say: we will protect you?

    Allah they and their forefathers have fallen short of Your glory and Your praise. Please grant Your exalted mercy upon them. We call upon Your peace and Your glory, Lord. Please take them into Your mighty hands. In repentance & forgiveness in all humbleness before Your sight: Iraq, Iran, Italy, Jerusalem, United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Afghanistan, Turkey, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Jordan, Azerbaijan, Poland, Russia, Indonesia, Fiji, Pakistan, India, Turkmenistan, Armenia, Austria, Georgia, Japan, Mexico, France, Finland, Germany, China, North & South Korea, Philippines, Cuba, Taiwan, South America, Hainan, Hawaii and others. The (nation) of Africa, that is not {Africa}, but is the nation of Israel. “Allah” put Your mercy in the hearts of all people on the earth, Lord God

  20. Marvin Shorter, Jr, said

    Allah we have fallen short of Your glory & Your praise. Deceiving our fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters. Not to glorify Your peace or Your mercy. But to kill people in the name of Terror, for world domination. To take down Your exaltedness. Now we are standing before You, (In Shame). Say: Lord, I once was a child. And I did childish things. Deceive into worshipping Jesus, and not You. Now I am a man. And I put those childish things behind me worshipping You only. Who has no son? In all humbleness we call upon Your exalted name. Saying: Please forgive us, Allah: California, Utah, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Florida, Texas, Colorado, Missouri, Mississippi, Minnesota, Tennessee, Ohio, Nevada, North & South Carolina, Kansas, Maine, Oregon, Michigan, Washington, Nebraska, Indiana, Alabama, Montana, Kentucky, Wyoming, Oklahoma, North & South Dakota, West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Idaho, New Mexico, Illinois, Iowa, Arkansas, New York, Georgia, Arizona

  21. Marvin Shorter, Jr, said

    People you are hereby commanded to come to Mecca, and say the name of God over the calf He has created for you. In purchasing alms:{“Torah”} Or {“Gospel”} that redeems you to salvation. You may pay only what you can afford.
    Lord God, George W. Bush and the leaders of the United States government that I send states to putting them under Your protection is refusing to pay for Your protection they are also refusing to free me & to exalt me to honor. Allah promise me in making a sacrifice exalting Him over the Universe He will exalt us over the United Nations. The Christians promise God that when an apostle make a sacrifice exalting Him. They will case aside the Holy Bible and worship Him only. A promise made to God must be answer for. Allah Almighty God will not fail His promise. They had the United States Post Office: to steal my states by mail, that I send to churches in my name: Marvin Shorter, Jr. and address at: 1020 S. Kingsley Dr. #2 Los Angeles, California 90006. He also had At & T, to eavesdrop on all my phone calls. Plus when I was sending small states by e-mail, over my computer to put peace into the Middle East he had his people to send them back. He also had the T.V. news reporters to proclaim: Do not except e-mail from no one that you not know. You will receive a ‘Virus’. These people are wicked & disobedience to Your will, Lord God.
