Ok, so, the United States of America has elected a guy who is arguably a black man to be president.
This is now obviously Year Zero of some new era.
Maybe it will turn out to be Year 1. For some reason, people who create calendars are biased against the concept of zero. Join me in this personal shout-out to urge use of zero! Zero is necessary to make all modern math work correctly. Avoiding year zero causes great agony for future generations of historians.
I say that Obama is arguably a black man. I am not a black man, but I observe that blackness is more to do with one’s personal point of view than with one’s skin pigment or ancestry. Didn’t Bill Clinton claim to be the first black president? Or maybe other lying scumbags in his company made this claim on his behalf, I don’t want to unncessarily impugn Fellatio Boy when there so much necessary impugning of Fellatio Boy which needs to be done.
It is my understanding that Obama’s mom was what we call a “white” woman, and that Obama’s sperm provider was what we call in this country a “black” man, a man born in Kenya of indigenous ancestry. Obama’s actual father, i.e., the male adult who actually parented Obama, was Lolo Soetero, an man born in Indonesia, of indigenous ancestry.
But, it is quite clear, Obama has made the choice to be Black. I don’t argue that he had other viable options, his skin pigmentation and facial features may well have foreclosed any other choice.
I am happy that Obama was elected. I am hopeful that the election of a man who is apparently black will prove to be a generator of major healing in race relations, and that this event will signal to all people of origin other than European that one’s genetic, national, regional origin is of no importance compared to one’s personal individual attributes of intelligence, integrity, morality, leadership, creativity, and the results one produces. Heck, I hope this signal is received by absolutely everyone. It is complete insanity that anyone’s worth could be accurately judged by his skin pigmentation, or by his ancestry, or by the predominant region from which his ancestors hark.
I know there are racists in this country, and, undoubtedly, there are racists in every country. I think it is self-evident that the election of Obama shows that racism is no longer going to be a dominant force in politics in the United States. For this, I rejoice!
