The only way to beat Barack Obama in the presidential election is to get personal and dirty and raise the matter of his skin color as a voting issue. Obama Waffles meets that gutter mandate of personal persecution for political gain — and you can see how Obama is no longer the cartoon monkey Curious George to conservative politicos — he’s now been re-drawn as the new cartoon relative of Black stereotype pancake queen: Aunt Jemima.
Oh, sure the people that created the “Obama Waffles” website will claim they’re just calling him on his “waffling” on the issues of the day — all the while invoking the same old Racist memes that were used to lynch Harold Ford, Jr. in the Tennessee senate race.
It isn’t enough to just make Barack the new Aunt Jemima — the Republicans also can’t survive a day without bringing up Barack’s non-Muslim religion by cartooning him in a headscarf:
Unfortunately, this sort of cruel and unnecessary memeing of a man is effective in the lower regions of the United States where fear and foreigners are loved and loathed.
Campaigns of mediocrity like Obama Waffles can never lift us to the greater heights of insight and revelation because they want us stuck in a rickety old past of “yassah” and “massah” because it keeps their lily White power intact and degrades the minority into the trash bin of a history from which they may never escape.
Vote your mind and not your fears.
The USA was built on the back of foreigner labor. When we disparage the new by harkening history, we are condemned to live in antiquity, and to never move forward into innovation and the warming evolutionary spark of human inspiration.
