The media is hyping that the notion that if Barack Obama is not elected it is because of the pervasive racism in America. This prompted me to do a bit of self-examination because before I decided to vote intelligently I was going to vote for Barack Obama solely because he is black and I didn't want to be on the wrong side of history -- I called it tribalism.
Let's face it 90% or more black people are voting for Barack Obama!!!! I wouldn't say it's solely because he is black because we are under the false assumption that Republicans are evil and we need change.
The point is we are quick to cry racism because we falsely believe that white Americans can't bring themselves to elect a black man but we call it tribalism when we vote for a candidate without regard to his position on key issues that effect our lives just because he is a black man. So the question becomes is Barack Obama going to be a victim of racism (if he loses) or is he going to cash in on tribalism(if he wins)? My "Aha" moment was the realization that tribalism= racism
So, to borrow a phrase from my pastor Lon Solomon .... "Not a sermon, just a thought"
