If you missed Barack Obama’s Democratic Party acceptance speech last night, click here.
This video is a semi-biography that serves as a campaign vehicle for Obama. Note that there are very few images of black people in this video. Has Obama ever been to the hood? Because I don’t see that reflected in this video.
This video makes it painfully clear that Obama is not campaigning as a black presidential hopeful – he is campaigning as a president for all people – which we know is an oxymoron in itself since “all people” don’t see themselves in Obama…
I don’t see myself in Obama either. If I was an American citizen I wouldn’t vote for Obama until he shows me who he is – campaign rhetoric aside. It seems funny that when Bill Clinton was running for president he was more “black” than Obama will ever be.
