Well, no matter how bad he screws up, he'll always have that title. Wait; wasn't Bill Clinton our first black president?
Herman Cain will be the first true all-black President next year.
And it will be hilarious to watch the debates between him and the clueless Chicago Usurper - especially if Cain has the balls to insist on “no teleprompters”.
Isnt that the truth?! What a disappointment.
He's a mulatto....who took advantage of his darkness....
I’d go with our first affirmative action president.
Bambi is not our first black president — he is our first fake and foreign-born president.
He only knows how to do everything half-assed.
The worst of it is the world is agonizing for a real slick community organizer to fill his previously worn shoes to boot.
I’m waiting for this “black” president to address the growing problems of “wilding” and gang violence in our cities. These problems have been there for years, bubbling beneath the surface, but, there have been many incidents recently in which the gangs are coming up out of the ghettos and committing their crimes in nicer areas of our cities.
Based on some reports, our cities are becoming cauldrons just waiting to explode. It could be a long hot summer. If we see a rerun of the race riots of the ‘60s, I wonder what the liberal response and Obama’s response would be.
Why lump Forrest Gump with Hanoi Jane? Forrest Gump earned the Medal of Honor. Just because Tom Hanks is a liberal schmuck doesn’t mean every character he’s ever played is also a marxist rat.
we still have “first bi-sexual usurper” and “first bi-sexual commie usurper”.
HE’S NOT BLACK!!!!!!
He’s a mulatto....who took advantage of his darkness....
Holy smokes! I thought I was the only one using that term these days!
yes we did but might be a while before we waste it again.
Yes, I’ve thought this too. I feel bad for black people on this subject, esp. since he’s done NOTHING to help working Americans of any race, color or creed.
Are we still allowed to say “mulatto”?
How about “quadroon”?
He’ll never get my vote.
I have no color hangups, I just want real Americans in the job.
How DARE you say such a thing about the President of The US!
He is doing a FIRST RATE job of destroying the country! Nothing "half-a$$ed" about it!
I had a white liberal tell me that. The reason was that Obama didn’t end the war. What does one have to do with the other?
Other than his narcisistic head pose there is nothing presidential about the boy-man.
First off, a Black democrat is not a American at heart,more of a parasitic entity,as exemplified in Obama and the company he keeps.
“Other than his narcisistic head pose there is nothing presidential about the boy-man.”
And constantly giving US the Finger,is a nice racist touch coming from a 22 year student of Rev Wright house of hate.
There isn’t one thing to respect about him. Absolutely nothing!
I would vote for Allen West in a heartbeat. I am still praying he runs. He would make black Americans (and all Americans) proud, unlike Nobama.
Mulatto in the 50’s, in my neighborhood in upstate NY, described a light skinned black...usually female. These were the offspring of inner city black and white “encounters”. Marriages?? Nope....These were the early welfare folks.
Well, at least the animal kingdom is happy - they got a wookie as First Lady.
First affirmative action president fails 100%.
I agree with you there, but first i want to hear either West or Cain say that if elected I will be the American president not the black president.
With all due respect to your point, Gump was a FICTIONAL character to be admired. Captain Miller was ALSO a laudable fictional character.
Hanks and Fonda are REAL and the damage they’ve helped do to this country may never be repaired.
Whaddya mean "we"...white man?
Nah! he’s a first lotta things, but first black isn’t one of them.
First RED (Communist) President.
First totallly anti-American President.
First foreign money campaign financed President.
First telepromter President.
First openly non-Natural Born Citizen President.
First golf Pro President.
First Muslim President.
First free Rock Concert/free beer campaigning President
.......and the beat goes on and on!
First “Black President?” Ya gotta be kidding me! He’s Black??? Nah, he’s the “Magic Negro!” not black authentically.....
>>> Nah, hes the Magic Negro! not black authentically.....
You have totally misunderstood the magic negro discussion. It had nothing to do with “black authenticity”.
The meme was spread by a liberal black homosexual named David Ehrenstein who was sneering at the mindless desperation of those white liberals who assumed Morgan Freeman or Uncle Ben or Bojangles Robinson was about to show up and fix all their problems just by his spiritual superiority. The “magic” was always the delusion of weak-minded tingly legged whites. It never referred to black authenticity at all.
Said Ehrenstein, “Like a comic-book superhero, Obama is there to help, out of the sheer goodness of a heart we need not know or understand. For as with all Magic Negroes, the less real he seems, the more desirable he becomes. If he were real, white America couldn’t project all its fantasies of curative black benevolence on him.”
Paul Shankin’s parody for Limbaugh was very funny but it drowned out the very good points made in the L.A. Times editorial. And the “authenticity” business just gave Obama an opening to dismiss the critics as racists.
Four years later it’s still a good read.
Thanks for the linc and short winded education.....
It’s been a while since I ;llast read the Times Opinion piece....
Of course, in my original post I was being flip and was referenced the Shanklin parody in jest......
That IS my point.
You’re probably around the same vintage I am. We referred to blacks as Negros. I was puzzled the first time I saw one - I spent my early years in Lancaster County PA - and moved to Cleveland during grade school years. I asked my Mom about why some people were so strangely dark and she told me they were Negro. I later learned about Mulattos, High Yellow, Octaroon, Quadroon, etc. So Obama is “high yellow”....
I was horrified when I would see people publicly “necking” as we called it; I am distressed now that public sex acts, especially homosexual, are ignored in San Francisco and other places. I feel sorry for my kids; I hope things turn around before THEY have kids. They won’t be voting for Obama, I assure you...
