As America celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. ‘s birthday this week and is getting ready to celebrate Black History Month in February, I have reflected on the state of liberalism and its impact on the Black community and have concluded that I am very confused!
What am I confused about? Before Obama’s election as president, no one thought we would ever see a Black person elected president because of racism.
Since Obama has been elected president, can one reasonably postulate that racism has become less of an issue? If the answer is no, then how do you explain Obama’s election? Remember, conventional wisdom was that America was too racist and would never elect a Black president (and remember, Whites are still a majority of the electorate, so therefore, there were a lot of Whites who voted for Obama).
If the answer is yes, then why do liberals constantly blame the plight of Blacks on racism? You can’t have it both ways.
