If black people think Obama was a better choice over Palin and McCain, they simply don't get it. Both Republicans and Democrats represent Wall Street. In 2008, Most of Obama's top campaign donors were directly linked to Wall Street. According to opensecrets.org, Obama's second largest donor source was no other than the notorious Goldman Sachs.
Goldman Sachs was top Obama donor
According to Center for Responsive Politics, Obama received $994,795 during 2007 and 2008 from Goldman Sachs' political action committee and individual contributors. The Goldman Sachs that was accused of fraud by the SEC for creating junk derivatives, selling them to their clients and betting against the same derivatives. They eventually agreed to pay $550 million dollars, 250 million went to the defrauded investors and $300 million went to the Treasury department. This same Treasury department run by Goldman Sachs buddy Tim Geithner. Henry Paulson, the treasury secretary before Geithner worked at Goldman Sachs.

Both Obama and McCain recieved big money from Wall Street. And the same big contributors who supported Obama, supported Bush in 2004. The fact of the matter is that there was no substantive choice between McCain and Obama. If anything, blacks would have been smarter to back a non-black puppet.
After all, when a ship is sinking, it is smart to make sure the puppet captain doesn't look like you, especially when you are already a minority group in a weaken position. Boxing legend Ali said it best on a TV interview decades ago when he was asked if he wanted to be president.
"No, it's dangerous....in other words, here's a ship, people are dancing on the ship, a lot of money is on the ship, a lot of food is on the ship, and I can not integrate on the ship. I can not have equality on the ship. I'm just in the galley working. And I never could get up to see the captain. All of sudden, a man says, "Hey Ali, come on up out of the galley. I want you to come up and have something to drink. What do you want?" And give me the number spot from the galley to the number one spot. I say this ship must be sinking!"
Exactly. Black folks, the ship must be sinking and we foolish fell for this trap. The elite put that fool Obama in place to make him the fall guy. Unfortunately, 95% of black voters couldn't see the obvious. I voted for the McCain, not because I liked him. I simply thought it would have been smarter for blacks to support Clinton and McCain, since the empire was already collapsing. Now, people will use Obama as an excuse to claim racism is no longer a problem and the elite will use race as a weapon to tear us apart. People will say, "That ni@@er, ruin America!"
It's already happening if you're paying attention. Since Obama has been in office, he has nominated corrupt political players such as Tim Geithner and Tom Daschle, escalated the war in Afghanistan, order unmanned aircraft attacks in Pakistan, continued the war in Iraq, supported the Wall Street bailouts, promoted a failed stimulus package, pushed through an unpopular health care law and divided the American people.
Personally, I can't wait until America gets over this foolishness involving race and racism. After all, race is a political creation. And now Obama is going to be used as a political tool to punish Americans of all colors.
