Obama no longer seen as 'Jesus' in Charm City
Winnepeg Free Press ^ | 7-31-10 | Allen Abel

Posted on 07/31/2010 9:37:04 AM PDT by smokingfrog

I was driving the heart-breaking streets of Charm City and the black man on the radio was talking about Barack Obama.

"All this spinnin' plates on a stick the President's tryin' to do is for the rich," he was saying. And the caller (it was a local midday talk show on the AM dial) said, "Yeah, he can't take no more from us, 'cause we got nothin' to lose."

The next day, a survey was released by The Washington Post and ABC News. The headline said Majority of Americans lack faith in Obama: poll.

"Asked how much confidence they have in Obama to make the right decisions for the country's future," the article said, "58 per cent of respondents said just some or none."

I wondered if this opinion extended to the African-Americans who had danced in the streets of Baltimore on Nov. 4, 2008. So I went to see the man whose voice I had heard on the radio.

He didn't have (or need) a name; just a letter and a number: C4.

Everybody in Baltimore knows C4, which is an abbreviation for the patrician monicker of Clarence M. Mitchell IV. As a former state senator (like Barack Obama), and as the son of a former state senator, and as the grandson of the first black female attorney in Maryland, and as the grandson of the man for whom the city's courthouse is named, and as the great-grandson of the woman who served as the president of the local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People from 1935 to 1970, his credentials seemed to be in order.

BTW we just lost a fantastic Johns Hopkins worker/student in Charm City. A black couple went “white boy hunting” and stabbed him to death while he was talking with his mother on a cell phone.

Baltimore is the most racist city in the US. The hate drummed up by the culture against white people is frightening.

Yes, people are starting to get it, get him. A little late. And yet the class warfare continues, and Obama will slip past that, keep us fighting each other in a sideshow and some aren't likely to see the real show. Sometimes I think, well, at least those who supported him and see through him now are less likely to give him a second term, but considering how the economy is and how many little things he's slid in during his first term just to date (taxes, freedoms, etc), he's not thinking 2nd term.

Actually it seems Philadelphia is worse. They have “flash mobs.”

Yes....but don’t sell Atlanta GA short. There’s quite a bit of hate-mongering going on there, too.

Funny — no mention of being called “mongrels” by Obama.

Sick. No news in the media about this hate crime murder.. I think I would have been calling 911 and keeping my distance. Balt is not a place to lollygag in.

Watch as the Congressional Black Caucus calls for a cell phone ban so that Afrotards aren't tricked into committing murder because of them.

I thought redevelopment and Camden Yards and easy money were going to stop all that?

You know, economic opportunity = no crime?

Or is this the real meaning of "social justice" -- blacks lynching whites at random?

Were they arrested? Reprimanded? Given a good, stiff talking-to?
