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:
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.
