The Black Experience: Dont Wish That Mess On Anyone
Posted: Wednesday, July 30, 2008 10 Hours 58 Minutes 25 Seconds Ante Meridian

My Brother still drinks the Barack Obama Kool Aid in spite of allot of obvious and indisputable facts about him.

He tells me that he wishes I was 50, so I could have had "The Black Experience". When I think about it, that was an offensive and unkind thing to say or wish on anyone. The reason why I feel that way however, is not as obvious as it may seem.

Why would anyone want to wish going through the Civil Rights Movement on anyone? I do not have a desire to be discriminated against or watch the fire hoses of the Democrats in the south on the news every day.

Is it going to make me thankful for what I have? No. I am already thankful for everything I have and the freedoms I enjoy. I have been too close to losing all of them too many times.

I'll tell you what The Black Experience has done to many of my friends. It has put on them a terrible and in the year 2008 largely unnecessary burden they carry with them everywhere they go. I cant imagine what their days must be like. Here are some other things I cant imagine:

  • I cant imagine walking around questioning the motives of everyone I see that doesn't look like me.
  • I cant imagine branding people racist just because they don't understand me or ask me stupid questions out of nothing more than ignorance.
  • I cant imagine using the word "White Folks" in a sentence hundreds of times per day.
  • For the uneducated, beleiving that the government is out to get them and created the AIDS virus and other foolishness Jeremiah Wright and Kanye West told them through the pulpit or song.
  • I cant imagine blaming my failures on an invisible and almost non-existent enemy. If its my fault, at least I can fix it.
  • I cant imagine hating people who look like me just because they are conservative but loving people who commit felonies.
  • I cant imagine living in fear of people who don't know me or even know of me.
  • I cant image transferring this burden to my children and having them grow up with it.

No, I don't want to be born in and around 1960. I don't want to have The Black Experience. That's an experience I can do without. Its a burden I don't need. I know the intent was to get me to see things from their point of view but who in his right mind wants to look at the world through a lens so jaded?

Even though I don't want Barack Obama to be president, I thank God every day I live in a country where its possible for him to be president.
