I had to stop and think about this a little because normally me and this dude does not talk that much. But we were working together that day and somehow the conversation turned towards politics. At first I thought that the question was a trick to draw out something negative; since you all know that White People love to hear Black people bash other Black people that are in some position of power; you know what I mean, that ole divide and conquer thang; so I told myself to choose my words wisely.
I told him I think he has accomplished a lot in his short time in office; more than damn near any other President before him.. .
I think he tries so hard to not be the Angry Black man, that he bends over way too easy. He tries to get along with people that he should just tell to go fuck themselves. I think he needs to show the world whose nuts are swinging.
This is what I think.
Has he been a bad President?
He has shown some flashes of brilliance. He has proven to me and the rest of the stereo type believers here in this great country of ours that there are educated, soft-spoken, strong Black men walking amongst us. He has proven that you don't need to slap a ho to get your point across. Even though slapping a few hos is exactly what he needs to do sometimes.
So I am kinda torn on this subject. He has disappointed me, but he has given me hope too. He has me asking sometimes, "man what the fuck is this dude doing? Why does he put up with that bullshit?" But then I turn around and say, "Man that is one smooth brother. Damn."
So basically that is what I told my co-worker.
I don't approve of everything that the man has done..But I give the man credit on the things he has done.
So there you have it..
What say you ole faithful readers?
How do you grade our HNIC?
