African Americans Are Tired of Obama's Scolding Lectures!

Good Morning, I got a lot on my mind today. Trending right now: President Obama's Speech to Morehouse College. Can I just say, Arrrrgggg!?!?!?! Seriously, I'm starting to dislike President Barack Obama. I voted for him on principal--not because I liked him, thus, when he does something or says something that I feel needs to be challenged; I will hold him accountable. Case in point:

His Speech to Morehouse College graduates.

Will it ever be a time when group of young Black men can come together to celebrate without having to cringe, at yet another individual,who made the casual mistake of seeing them as criminals or children that need to be scolded, as opposed to congratulating them for accomplishing the hopes and dreams they set out to do? Obama all but waived his finger at these young men. I found his speech, presumptive, condescending and ignorant of whom was in the audience. Imagine telling such a hard-working group of men that they need to "stay on the grind." As if theywere slacking. He fed into large held stereotypes of Black men that are viewed by white people. 

I wonder if he would have spoken to a group of white students this way at traditionally Ivy League Alma Maters?

I have several relatives that graduated from Morehouse College and the gall f the president to speak to these young men as though they were criminals rather than young men who will one day be the captains of industry; all but led this gal to consider that they might have just as well had the Grandmaster of the Klu Klux Klan give the commencement address. 

President Obama needs to be called out for this. And it's high time Black people stop giving him a pass.

Frankly, I and a lot of other people are getting tired of listening to these tired, finger-pointing speeches the President seems to give whenever he's in front of Black audiences. We're tired of getting lectured. Black people aren't the ones committing terrorists acts, mass shootings, and we certainly aren't the ones who messed up this economy.

Speech:  You be the judge:

I Love Being of African Heritage!


Oh, Yes I do!

There's no trace of inferiority in me. None.

Slavery was not the beginning of the Black race--it was an interruption of what truly was a magnificent beginning.

Did you know that much of the Bible is talking about Africans? Some folks are ignorant of this because of the sinister infusion of race/racism of biblical teaching that has permeated the world. All one has to do is study history and geography to smash the lies told about Black people.

Let's face it; it's easier to get many Black people to watch the Kardashians rather than read books that tell us who we truly are. It's like deep within a few; their subconscious can't accept anything which infuses any type of pride. Too many Black people today are willfully indigent, when it comes to points of intellect about Africa, and our history as a people.

White power is not capable without the participation, and sadly, the cooperation of co-conspirators within the psyches of our people.

I've never been afraid of white folks--and would laugh right in the face of a White supremacist.

Look at the books, white people are descended from Neanderthals, Black people are descended from Homo-Sapiens (the highest species). What does that tell you? Yet, white people think they are superior. If many really knew what Neanderthals really were, and how they lived; they'd know concretely that white supremacy is a presumption--not a fact. Neanderthals were cannibals.

However, the history that has been fed to the world is that of a white supremacist mindset. But! Black Scholars can refute most white scholars about history today. All one has to do is look at the time frame in which history books elevate European culture; when learning Black/African history, one will clearly see the gaps. A lot was wiped out. Why? And just what happened?

There is no excuse for any Black person on this earth to be ashamed of who they are. None whatsoever.

We as a people, are more than just soundbites in history; AFRICA was the BEGINNING of all that has become.
