Barack Obama - Our Hope for the Future

plezWorld Supports Barack Obama

Since attending the Obama Rally in Atlanta, Georgia in April 2007, plezWorld has been a staunch supporter for Barack Obama's run for the White House. I sincerely feel that he shares my hope for a brighter day in America, a day that removes the roadblocks of petty partisan politics, a day the ushers in a time for civil discourse, and a day the restores America's place in the world as a facilitator of peace, rather than the harbinger of death and destruction. I also share Obama's steadfast opposition to the War in Iraq, an act that was wrong from the first day that our jets strafed that country, until today. I applaud Obama's call for a more focused search for Osama Bin Laden. And I also agree with his plan for universal health care for all Americans.

In addition to creating a blog at the Obama '08 site, I have done something that I have never done before: plezWorld contributed cold, hard cash to a presidential campaign. I want to share the e-mail message that was recently received from "Obama for America" campaign:

    Plez, I support Barack Obama as well. I hope that he wins the Iowa caucus on 1/3/2008. That would propel him forward in a remarkable way towards the Democratic nomination. Coming in second or third would be much, much more difficult.

    peace, Villager

    The white male supremacy paradigm has more reason to feel threatened now electorally than ever before. In fact, the tag team of "Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama Represents a Two-Pronged Attack on the White Male Supremacy Paradigm."

    Plez, I think your excitement, enthusiasm and support for Barack Obama is great. Although I support Hillary Clinton, I'm not just a partisan. I'm also a political observer and consensus builder. My goals for 2008 are to end the 43-term white male monopoly of the presidency, to grow and strengthen the AfroSpear.

    It seems to me that if Hillary Clinton is nominated then some AfroSpear members and half of Black people at large will be very happy with that result. However, if Barack Obama is nominated then virtually all AfroSpear members and and all Black people will be astonished and ecstatic with that result, leading to turnout on the order of that which accompanied the election of Harold Washington as Chicago's first Black mayor.

    So, I'm really torn. I'm encouraged to take a step back and look at the big picture here: Effectively, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama together constitute an enormously popular and well-financed two-pronged attack on the white male monopoly of the presidency and, more generally, the white male supremacy paradigm itself. Neither of them alone could have mounted this attack on the white male supremacy paradigm, so each of them owes a debt of gratitude to the other for seeking the presidency in 2008.

    And the only way that either of them can win the General Election is if we all pull together and look at the big picture: we will never have a Black or woman president until and unless we defeat the 43-term white male monopoly of the presidency and the white male supremacy paradigm whose first rule is that only white men can provide leadership in America.

    If you're tempted to dislike Hillary Clinton, just remember that she has spent millions of dollars in her campaign to show that it doesn't take a white penis to be the president. That is as helpful to Barack Obama as it is to Hillary herself.

    I support Obama...you know that.

    But, here's an OT for you:



    Here's an article for you about Flipping Mitt....he's #*$*ing LYING about his father marching with MLK.

    ROmney fields questions about King

    When someone LIES and tries to use MLK, can't be tolerated.

    I also made my very first financial contribution to a campaign for Barack Obama, and intend to give more. Bill Clinton was the boy *from* Hope; Barack Obama is *all about* hope. I'm excited and anxious to see how the Iowa caucuses play out.

    villager,
    i am praying for a win in iowa, as well. but a win there probably won't have the impact of a win in south carolina or on super tuesday, since those primaries carry much more significance and more delegates. i see iowa more as a symbolic kickoff of the primary season.

    stepfather,
    obama represents the first time that i have been passionate enough about a candidate to reach into my pocket and shell out some money. now, i feel like i have a vested interest in seeing him win!

    rikyrah,
    i may have to read more about mitt romney's comments and write a post about it. i'm disturbed when MLK's partners (like andy young & jesse jackson) misuse the MLK legacy... so it makes my blood boil when some right-wing politician who couldn't care less about Black folk ties some of his political fortunes to the struggle of Black folk in America... it is plain sickening!

    francis,

    i still cannot fathom tying ANYTHING of substance to hillary clinton's run for the white house. as evidenced by her minions' behavior of the past 2 weeks, she is in that clintonian-mode where her campaign will SAY ANYTHING for votes. she has no soul and no core... and i'd much rather see a white male like JOHN EDWARDS rather than her in the white house.

    to my way of thinking, i wouldn't want hillary clinton to win so that she can break the white male monopoly on the white house.

    you contend that her candidacy has helped BARACK OBAMA! she has only helped him in that her attacks have helped him to frame the response that will be necessary when he has to faceoff against Republican opposition.

    something tells me that if hillary gets defeated, you will switch your support to CYNTHIA McKINNEY of the green party! UGH!
