Decades from now, Obama will be thought of as the president that ushered in Donald Trump. Forget about the ‘first Black president’. Forget about Obamacare. And there really isn’t anything else of note to even bother mentioning, is there?
In January, Obama will hand over the reigns to Donald “You’re Fired” Trump! And basically, that is what the American people told the democrats. “You’re fired!” For many, many years, the democrats, Obama included, took the Black vote for granted. They took the ‘poor’ vote for granted. It mattered not if the poor were Black or white, their vote was taken for granted because the democrats ignored their constituents until it was time to keep a senate seat or a house seat or keep the presidency under democrat control. The democrats spouted the same old tired ass rhetoric, decade after decade and they weren’t really listening to it anymore because it was all recycled garbage; the same message that they’d always used and it did work for a long time. But now, the fat lady has sung for the democrats and for Obama’s legacy.
I will not remember Obama as the first ‘Black’ president since I cannot name a single thing his Administration has done to improve the lives of Black Americans. I cannot think of a single stroke of his executive pen that improved the lives of Black Americans. From day one, that Kenyan born asswipe turned his back on the very people who overwhelmingly voted for him. He turned his back on people who he knew voted for him in the hopes that he would recognize what we all know and do something about helping us take down a deck that has been stacked against us since our ancestors were dragged here. Even though we knew that he was born of a man from Kenya and a white mother, we knew that he had a Black wife and together they produced Black children. We thought that he would look into his wife’s eyes and into the eyes of his daughters and see our daughters, our sons but he did not. He feathered his nest and that of his family’s and left the rest of us to make it as best we could with odds so stacked against us that no bookie would even take the bet.
He promised transparency in government and then turned right around and held secret meetings with insurance companies when putting together the details of Obamacare. He promised us a single payer health care system and we got skyrocketing premiums and little options and now companies are bailing on Obamacare, left and right. He promised jobs and then turned around and held secret meetings over the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement(TPP) that would have strengthened corporate strongholds over entire nations with the ability to bankrupt them and take their natural resources, impoverishing the nation’s people.
Obama said he was “opposed to dumb wars” and yet, US troops are in Afghanistan to this day, protecting poppy plants that when harvested are given a free flight straight to the U.S. and into the veins of addicts in every city in America. Iraq is still seeing heavy fighting between U.S. trained insurgents and ‘the other guy’. Libya, which was not a hotbed for terrorist activities is off the chain thanks to policies put into play by the Obama Administration and with loving approval of his former Secretary of State Hillary “We came! We Saw! He died!” Clinton when speaking of the murder of Libya’s former leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. That warpig, Hillary Clinton guffawed over the senseless and needless murder of Gaddafi and with all else that was attached to her filthy ass, she actually thought that Americans wanted any more to do with her or with the Administration she was attached to? We showed you!
Obama did nothing; not one damn thing about the school-to-prison pipeline unless you think ignoring it is doing something about it. Inner city children are kept ignorant, on purpose because they are being groomed to feed the ‘for profit’ prison slavery system. Our children lag behind children in most other developed nations in just about every subject, especially math and science. Many cannot even find other countries on a map. There are so many who cannot even read, the calls for tutors and mentors are ear piercing. Is this another Obama’s legacy? Indeed, it is and not a proud one; not at all.
Barack Obama did more for gays than for any other group. Lit the White House up in rainbow colors when the Supreme Court approved gay marriage. Was the White House lit up in somber colors when twelve-year old Tamir Rice was gunned down two seconds after cops showed up at the park where he was playing? Was the White House lit up in somber colors after Trayvon Martin was executed by a racist who is still walking around grinning and having a good time after killing that child? Did Obama light up the White House in somber colors after Sandra Bland was found mysteriously hanged in a Texas jail cell after having been arrested for failing to make a proper turn signal? Was the White House lit up in somber colors when Freddie Gray breathed his last after having been arrested for doing nothing wrong and in the process had his neck mysteriously broken while being carted to jail in the back of a police van? No! No! No! No! No and NO!
And yet, the Obama justice Department by way of his next favorite coonhead Loretta Lynch is suing the state of North Carolina because North Carolina does not think that men who have ‘transgendered’ should be able to enter restrooms that are designated for females. Black people have been systematically butchered by racist cops and there was no reason in the world to make a stink over that, but along comes a transgender bathroom sign and it is time to get the justice department to sue over it. But to hell with ‘murder by cop’ of unarmed Black men, women and children. Does that give you a clue as to what Obama thinks of you, Black man, woman and child?
Not one asshole on Wall Street saw the inside of a prison cell for bringing entire economies to their knees thereby causing a Depression and yet then Obama Administration’s Justice Department head, Eric Holder stated that, “Bankers were too important to jail!” even though they had engaged in fraud, money laundering and other nefarious deeds, they were indeed, too important to jail. And yet, over two million Black men and women are sitting in prison for being caught with a plant(weed). Is this also part of Obama’s legacy? You goddamn right it is!
This so-called ‘first Black’ president has nothing to show for his presidency but Donald Trump and mass protests in the streets. And before that, there were mass protests in the streets over the murder of Black citizens by racist cops. Is that also an Obama legacy? You bet. Is that something to be proud of? Hell no! But he must own it because it is surely his to own.
History will indeed, remember Barack Obama and we shall as well and when history ‘whitewashes’ everything as it inevitably does, we will tell the truth. We will make sure that our children know why a racist bigot succeeded the so-called ‘first Black’ president. We will tell our children how we were lied to, ignored and thrown underneath the bus, time and time again and still many in Black communities all across this country, looked up to him. I certainly hope that they learned their lesson. Never make more of a man than he is for when all is said and done, he is still just a man and some are even less of a man than others. Obama is the lesser man and that is why his legacy to end all legacies is Donald J. Trump!
