American, Earth, Sky

Author: Tafari, Wednesday, April 27th, 2011 at 9:09 PM Mindspill

Now that President Barack Obama has proven for the 50-11th time that he was born as a human in Hawaii, which happens to be an American state, we can go back to reality where the sky is blue, the grass is green. Yesterday, I got to a fever pitch with this birther bullshit & posted this:
“The people questioning Obama's place of birth & scholastic record are proof that some people really think a Black man is not worthy of greatness. Reminds me of when Malcolm X's schoolteacher told him that he would be nothing. Reminds me of when a high school teacher (Michelle Ries from Mackenzie, I just put you on blast bitch!) of mine told me that college was not for me. I'm actually taking it personal.”
Racism is so institutionalized in this country to the point that some people just don’t know it when they see it. Maybe they do know & see it, but just don’t care because they feel & are privileged. WOOOOOSAAAAAAHHHHH!!! With that rant out of my system this image is a play on “Of Earth & Sky” from 2009. The field where I photography the grassy portion of “Of Earth & Sky” is no longer there. Three weeks ago it was razed by bulldozers making way for two new charter schools. I swear I don’t know why we need more schools in this area when two closed within the last year. Will students magically appear? WOOOOOSAAAAAAHHHHH!!

    There is a part of me that really enjoyed watching Barry telling people that they need to hold the jokers accountable for some important information…

    I was glad that the woman reporting for the nbc nightly news finally said that this was a non-issue, wish I would remember her exact words. Wondering why she didn’t (or any other of the national news media) say it a year a ago, two years ago, etc.

    Why are we letting the clowns set the agenda??

    You know, I was elated when Obama won the election. Everyone seemed to just take to Obama. Honestly, I thought we would have seen the racists show their asses a whole lot more during his campaign. But now, after he’s been elected, after the whole world seemed to celebrate his election, after more people turned out to vote than have turned out in 40 years, I don’t understand it. Where were all these people during the campaign? Did they think there was no way he’d win? And where have all those gone who elected him? Why are they so quiet? It really bothers me to see the slights that he’s suffering now. I wish those who stood strong to elect him would stand strong now to protect him from the crap that’s constantly being slung at him. What happened??

    i <3 Obama! I voted Obama and will do so again in 2012. i work for a fortune 500, predominantly white (male dominated) company. a few days ago a man who held a high ranking position with the company, was using the n word. he was dismissed from employment, after 20+ years with the company. gone. his departure indicates racist remarks will not be tolerated. we are moving toward a better place. there is hope for a better world. we must all speak up against racism. take a stand. eradicate racism.
