Obamanites



Somebody has to be the voice of reason, and it seems it has to be me. (Even though nobody is going to read this lol oh well). I admit I was elated once Barack Obama was officially elected the first black president of the United States. But all throughout the presidential election, it seemed black Americans, and many others intoxicated by Obama’s skills as an orator were judging based on skin color. Now let me make one thing clear, I am no republican and my views greatly differ from John McCain’s and Sarah Palin’s. And though I did not vote, (I told people I did, but I lied, oh well) I fully supported Obama.

1.) Because it seemed to me he had the people’s best interest in mind, John McCain wanted to continue what George Bush was doing, which instead of aiding the American people, ran the country into a world of debt.

2.) Anybody outside viewing in could see that John McCain’s campaign was purposefully avoiding important issues, and instead insisted on attacking Obama on his supposed relationship with school teachers aka “terrorists” if you hold republican views, and other irrelevant matters

But I digress, as I was saying, all throughout the presidential election it seemed voters (many of whom I’m sure would’ve kissed Obama’s feet and shined his shoes) were behind Obama solely because of his skin color, and taking his promises of “change” way too seriously, likely without really having any knowledge of politics or his views. Keep in mind people, he is a politician and he, like all other presidential hopefuls before him, would’ve said anything to become president. He isn’t going to change the world over night, heck, he’s likely not going to change the world at all, but that doesn’t negate his power to truly bring people together. That isn’t to downplay his superior leadership potential over John McCain (who could’ve possibly croaked within months of being inaugurated leaving us with a bimbo as Commander In Chief) but to highlight the fact that people should not hope for too much from Barack Hussein Obama, because you WILL be disappointed.


Here's another photo, this one if of Barack and his mother. I'm only adding it cause it looks real sweet... lol...

How Are We Today?

How are we today? Of course it is a rhetorical question because obviously it seems no one reads my blog. I don’t promote it as much as I should anyway. Besides, it isn’t as if my blog is about something in particular, or anything that would compel a reader to continue reading. A whole lot of nothingness has filled my days these past few weeks. My last bit of excitement was last Thursday when I went to go watch Knowing starring Nicholas Cage. However, that excitement dwindled down to nothing once the movie started. It was overly predictable, and the only thing that made it worthwhile was the scene towards the end when they’re leaving the planet while Earth is destroyed by a Solar Flare. The religious overtones didn’t help either. Me being an atheist, I can’t help but notice that there is only one type of acceptable atheist in a movie. We saw this “acceptable atheist” in both Will Smith’s character in I Am Legend, and Nicholas Cage’s character in Knowing. The “acceptable atheist” is one who rejects God after being subject to a calamity i.e. the death of a close friend, or family member etc. I don’t recall seeing a movie in which the atheist comes to his no God conclusion by deep thought, without the aid of a close friend’s death. Well I have seen one, which was the character of Ellie Arroway, played by Jodie Foster (an atheist herself: good girl Jodie J) in Contact.

I’m becoming an avid reader for some reason. Coming up I never thought much of books, but now I’m spending at least an hour on Amazon searching for books to buy. At the moment I have an increasing interest in American history. The next book I buy will most likely be A People’s History Of The United States by Howard Zinn. I’d like to be well read, but the primary reason I am so interested in this book is because I want to be aware of the truths that school history textbooks kept from us. Other books on my books-to-read-list are Medical Apartheid: The Dark History Of Medical Experimentation On Black Americans by Harriet A. Washington, Homophobia: A History by Byrne Fone, White Cargo: The Forgotten History Of Britain’s White Slaves In America by Don Jordan and Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography In America by James Allen to name a few.

Medical Apartheid: The Dark History Of Medical Experimentation On Black Americans – As I was searching through Amazon, this title immediately grabbed my attention. If I didn’t think blacks had suffered enough, they were also used as guinea pigs for medical experimentation, truly despicable. Reading the Amazon reviews was enough to turn my stomach, but I will eventually get my hands on a paperback copy of this book.

Homophobia: A History – Apparently this book covers the history of homophobia from ancient times to the present. Should be a nice read…

White Cargo: The Forgotten History Of Britain’s White Slaves In America – Slavery is something known to many as the harsh treatment Africans were forcefully put through by whites. But it certainly came as a surprise to me to find out that even whites were slaves, indentured slaves, but still subject to many of the same cruelties as the black slaves.

Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography In America – I’m still debating whether I should get this or not. I want to because of its historical value, but I’m not so sure I can stomach the many pictures of mutilated bodies and such. I likely will get it; after all, I have probably seen worse pictures than what is shown here… Which brings me to another topic.

Have you ever seen those photos online of mutilated bodies, murder/suicide victims? WOW.. lol.. I’ve seen some pretty bad photos; I steer clear away from the videos though. Clicking on a link and having a half blown off face stare at me is bad enough, so I don’t intentionally look for the videos. Neither do I intentionally look for the pictures. Jesus Christ… I’ve seen decapitated bodies, bodies with arms and legs torn off, cut off or blown off, I don’t know, but somehow the limbs were removed from the body… I’ve seen my fair share of real life gore, and don’t intend to see anymore…

******************************************************

Something has just come to my attention. In Arizona, Phoenix police raided the home of a fellow blogger. I’m assuming, as are many other people, that the police raid was an act of retaliation because of the blogger's highly critical writing of the Phoenix police. I do not know what exactly his criticisms entailed, but so far no evidence suggests he had done anything illegal. He was simply using his constitutionally granted Freedom Of Speech to express his distaste with the law enforcement of Phoenix.

Here’s a link to the news story.

The Majestic Stars Of The Night Sky.


For thousands of years, the stars have mystified human beings. Stars, when viewed with the naked eye from Earth are in a sense poetic. They can evoke from a person a sense of awe, and inspiration that not even the greatest of literary works from Shakespeare, to Maya Angelou can match. The stars, although unattainable and unreachable, are the most magnificent works of nature man has had the honor of viewing. They flicker, and in a clear night come in the thousands. When viewing under this circumstance, one comes to the distinct realization that we, humans in this beautiful planet Earth, are of no significance. We can be utterly wiped out in an instant; the killer could be an undetected Gamma Ray Burst, an asteroid catching us off guard, or ourselves, and even so, the universe would not be moved. Stars will continue to form, and planets will continue to coalesce. The universe will go on, and will not stop for a grain of sand.

The existence of hundreds of billions of stars in single galaxy, and hundreds of billions of galaxies in the observable universe sure gives credence the hypothesis that alien life, whether microbial or intelligent surely exists in other worlds. If intelligent extraterrestrial life indeed exists, it may be hundreds, thousands, millions or even billions of years ahead of us technologically, superior in every way imaginable, and unimaginable. Of course this is at the moment still merely a hypothesis not supported by empirical evidence. But it would be unwise to rule out the possibility when, if they do not exist, the universe would be “an awful waste of space”

I Find The Idea Of Black Pride To Be Ridiculous

for the same reason I find the idea of “White Pride”, or “Mexican” pride to be ridiculous. White Nationalists want the same right that minorities have, and that is the right to be “proud” of their race, their heritage and accomplishments. Right? You think if you announce that you’re proud to be white, you will immediately be labeled a racist. Well, that may be true of people who like to jump on the bandwagon so to speak. But anybody with common sense will see that if minorities have the right to be “proud” of their race, so should whites… Its only common sense, but many argue that because of what the whites of generations ago did, whites should be excluded from the “proud of my race” club. But, think about this logically… Why be proud of something you didn’t work to achieve? You didn’t choose to be white, just like a Mexican doesn’t choose to be Mexican, or a child born into a poor household didn’t choose to be born into a poor household where he would starve. But Mexicans, blacks, and others can proclaim they’re proud of their race and not be labeled racists… Well… There’s nothing I can say to that, for the moment that’s just how backwards society is.

Every “race” has its faults, and I don’t even know why I’m using the word “race” to explain this, it just shows how the brainwashing I’ve gone through hasn’t yet worn off. What I am saying is I don’t think “white people” are to blame. For me to be able to blame the entire white race for those whites that brought Africans to this country in chains, I would also have to blame every African for those few that betrayed their fellow country-man and sold them to the whites. No “race” in particular is to blame for anything, just individuals. I don’t blame the “white man” for those little girls that died in that church fire all those years ago, I blame those racist murderers for committing that crime.

I’m black/Mexican, and throughout my life I’ve had Black friends, Hispanic friends, White friends etc… you get the picture right? As corny and cliché as it may sound, (and its going to sound corny) I’m not for black people, I’m not for white people, or even Mexicans or any other “race” of human, because we’re all part of the human race. I believe that aliens from other worlds exist, let’s say hypothetically, if an advanced space-traveling alien race were to start a war with us. Do you really think they would choose which “race” of human to destroy? It may be a bad example, but to them we would all be worthless, violent, and selfish primitive beings.

For those of you who may actually read the entire post, and not just classify me as a nigger and ignore the majority of this, I’ll also address another issue that seems to be a big problem for you. Interracial relationships. I know you consider people who date interracially (like my mother & father) to be race traitors. Judging from some of the posts I’ve read here, I truly believe some of you have zero qualms with black people aside from the interracial aspect, and wanting to preserve your “racial identity” as you guys put it. But… really, I don’t mean to offend you but what is the logic behind that? What is the logic in wanting two human beings who are attracted to each other to hide their feelings for one another? You are who you are, and attraction cannot be controlled. That’s a fact… I don’t know how true this is, but it is said that eventually everyone on the planet will be 1 color, due to all of the color mixing. I, for one, as much as I respect the contributions of Malcolm-X and Martin Luther King and other great revolutionaries, don’t care about racial identity. I think a 1-color planet is the best thing that could happen.

What is racial identity anyway? I feel as uncomfortable around a gang of mischievous blacks as I do around a gang of mischievous whites. When it comes down to it, I look out only for myself, those in my immediate family and for my friends. I don’t care about black people. I don’t care about white people. I don’t care about Mexican people. It isn’t about race with me, I’ve gotten into arguments with whites, blacks, and Mexicans, to me its about the individual. If you’re cool, I’ll hang out with you, if you’re an assh---, f*** you. I’ve met cool people, and assh---s of every color. The whole idea of “racial identity” is a ridiculous one. The term itself sounds ridiculous. The only identity you should defend is your own, not the identity of someone who shares your skin complexion. His identity isn’t yours, he has his own.

I respect the history though, I respect the black people of long ago that suffered at the hands of racists. I also respect the whites that were enslaved and made to suffer. I respect the millions of Jews that were killed under Hitler’s rule, and the Armenians that suffered through a genocide. I respect the Japanese that were sent to camps during World War II. Every shade of human has suffered a great deal…. All those horrible things I mentioned were long ago, today, nobody owes anybody anything. The white people of today shouldn’t be made to feel sorry for what their ancestors did. They don’t need to apologize. Black people today who were never enslaved, or suffered need not complain and should not ask for reparations.

Here’s another thing… if you guys want to be taken seriously, I highly suggest you get rid of the people who have no idea what white nationalism means, and only signed up to this site to bash minorities. A while ago, Abraham Biggs, a black teenager, committed suicide while streaming it online. He took some drugs, fell asleep and died. This was just a few months ago and I read the news thread here on Stormfront when it was posted. At first a few were sympathetic, and felt sorry for the kid… Yeah… that was until they found out he was black… I read on without commenting, and after it was revealed he was black, there were nothing but insults and all the sympathy quickly vanished. Regardless of his “race”, he was still a human suffering from Bipolar disorder, which is a disorder anybody can get. So, let me reiterate, if you want to be taken seriously, and not be seen as a bunch of racist pigs full of hatred, get rid of the racist pigs that are full of hatred. It might clean up your image just a little bit, and maybe you won’t be lumped in with ridiculous websites like Niggermania.



This is just something I wrote while browsing through Stormfront and reading many of the comments there.

My Top 5 Best Songs I've Ever Heard

These are in no particular order, because it would be nearly impossible to choose a favorite out of these classics.

*click on the song name to listen to it*

1) Hurt by Johnny Cash - I'm not much of a country man but this song is one of those songs that just clicked with me from the very first time I heard it. If I could choose a song to be played at my funeral, it would probably be this one... Kind of ironic, since I'm an atheist and Johnny Cash was an evangelical Christian, but this song is one I'll never forget... Also, the first time I heard this song was when it was used as a tribute on Raw to Eddie Guerrero who had just passed away...

2) Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana – This is one of those songs I can play for hours on end without it getting dull. Seriously, for some reason I just can’t get tired of this song. A good description for it would be hypnotic. The verses, the chorus, the solo after the 2nd verse, everything is great.

3) Wade In The Water by Eva Cassidy – This song is one of my all-time favorites. Eva Cassidy is a great singer, and she did this classic justice.

4) Hallelujah by Rufus Wainwright – I first heard a variation of this song in the movie Shrek. It was when Princess Fiona was humming the song to the bird before it exploded. And later they played the actual song. Hallelujah... great song... Love it.....

5) Through Her Eyes by Dream Theater – This song is definitely unforgettable. I first heard this song in a movie, Dragon Ball Z: The History Of Trunks. Now, I was surprised to hear a song of this caliber in a cartoon. Through her Eyes is a beautiful song, the lyrics, the singing, the guitar; everything about this song is just perfect.


I’m pretty positive I left out tons of good songs that I like a lot, but at the moment, these are the ones that stand out the most to me.

Don't Trust Poetry.com

Poetry.com is a scam that I regretfully fell for. I submitted a poem for a poetry contest they were holding, and received a signed letter saying that my poem was a semi-finalist and could potentially win. Well, I first began to have suspicions when I received that letter, because the poem they said was a semi-finalist was something I didn’t even consider being that good. Then I submitted more poems, and sure enough I received the same letter for every poem I entered. Each and every poem I entered was a semi-finalist lol. My suspicions were proven fact early today when I decided to google search “Poetry.com is a scam”. Sure enough, I clicked on www.eliteskills.com, which featured testimonies from hundreds of people who claim to have been duped by the website. Thankfully I didn’t pay the publication fee.

What the website does is send letters to poets praising them, and telling them that their poems have been accepted for publication. But, in order to publish the poem, the poet has to pay a modest fee. Which seems fair, but the only people who will ever read these poetry books are the poets themselves who paid. No bookstore sells these poetry books. It is all a scam to rob young poets of their money. I am quite surprised that they haven’t been shut down yet.
