I’m Voting for Barack Obama – Period!

He is Black and that is all I care about period.

I don’t give a crap if he has funny colored lips, a white mother, and African Father.

I don’t give a sh-t if he went to Harvard and has little in common with your typpical African American, including myself.

I don’t care if some Black people say that if Obama is so popular amoung white people that he must be bad for Black people — F’em! I don’t care how little experience Obama has in polictics. I’m sure he is smart enough to surround himself with people who are smarter than he is on the important subject matters. Besides, can he be any worse than the due in the position now?

I don’t care what anyone says. I don’t care about any of the dirt the Clinton campaign will dig up. I don’t care.

I don’t care what any of the other so called Negros, who are in bed with Barack’s opponents, say. I’m still viting for Obama. I’m even registering as a democrat just so I can vote in the primary.

I don’t care if this is completely irrational. I really don’t. I want a Black man in the white house. I want little Black boys to believe it when someone says, “you can be anything you want to be — even president of the United States”.

I do care that is why I’m voting for Obama.
