Watching Barak Obama's recent speech where he defends his minister, reminds me that
my own problems while large are not so important. Family, art, war, mortality, politics, religion, class, and racism, remain the eternal struggles of civilization. They are universal and always present.
While things seem acute and in crisis- it has always been this way.
I think that in telling things as they are and reopening the wound that is bleeding, Obama deserves some credit. He is not really playing the game in the traditional sense. He is not saying what people are comfortable hearing, especially white people. When one listens to him speak even those who don't like him can not say it is bull.
After returning from Connecticut and this Jewish enclave where my mother finds herself imprisoned in a nursing home, I hear Obama is anti-Semitic, his minister is in with Farakan, he is a terrorist and i think this is why race, religion, and class are the walls blocking Democracy.
In fear things have become so conservative. Buy Gold. Buy Oil. All the talk is about diet- don't eat this or that.
I think if we don't elect this guy- we really deserve what is coming.
