An Open letter to President Obama.Submitted by SirFelix on Tue, 01/26/2010 - 22:21
Dear President Obama,
I pray for your well being, and I also pray that you will have the courage to stand up for the Americans who elected you into office.
I understand that you are not an American citizen, and have spent millions, to seal the facts of your past life.
I understand, that you are deeply entrenched in partisan Democratic politics.
I also understand that you are extremely intelligent.
I also understand that you represent the hopes and aspirations of the black community.
I understand a lot of things, but I want you to understand that the role you have taken in life comes with consequences that far exceed the value of your own life.
You were elected as a beacon of hope and change.
Are you going to limit your potential to the despair of the status quo?
I believe in the good that is within all men.
Will you let your goodness shine?
I realize that doing so will place you at grave risk of personal harm, but you must have realized this when you ran for office.
The last President to buck the system was J.F.K., hmmm....
Maybe you are smart enough to help this country without harming yourself.
Maybe you don't care about America, maybe you do.
In the words of MLKjr., There comes a time when silence is betrayal.
It is so sad for me to see a black man finally occupy the White House, and to know that that black man is a puppet of the banks.
What does this say about black people?
The racists will say that black people will sell their own people out for a buck.
Have you no pride? Will you not stand up for black people? Will you not stand up for America?
You will probably never hear my plea, but if you do, please consider the best interests of humanity and America.
Just my thoughts,
