The Black Code: Why Obama Still Owns the Black Vote
by: Lloyd Marcus
I watched a television program reporting the impact electing a black president has had on black America. Black America responded with tearful celebration. Black children chanted his name, “O-ba-ma! O-ba-ma!” Clearly, Obama was black America’s and the liberal mainstream media’s ultimate American Idol.
The TV program showed Obama’s image adorning t-shirts, tattoos, and everything in between. Winning 96% of the black vote, Obama was truly black America’s impossible dream come true.
Black America’s passionate adulation for Obama was so intense I expected them to sing Hosanna in worship of their messiah. I felt like a little kid timidly raising his hand from the back of a classroom.
“E-E-Excuse me. Has anyone even considered who Obama is as a person and what he will do as president?”
According to the TV program, Obama is great for America solely because he is African-American. The program producer’s neglect of mentioning Obama’s agenda leaves me to conclude that they thought it irrelevant.
I questioned. Why are my thought processes so different from most of my fellow black Americans’? Why did I choose to look a bit deeper into the content of Obama’s character rather than my critique of the man stopping at his skin color?
The answer: I am not submissive to the “The Black Code.” Most blacks grow up adhering to an unspoken, subliminally understood Black Code.
- You must kick the butt of any white person who calls you the “n word.”
- You must never let a white person beat you in a fight.
- Relationships with whites must be kept at arm’s length maintaining a silent us against them mindset. Blacks who appear too friendly and comfortable around whites are viewed with suspicion; their blackness in question.
