Senator Barack Obama won the presidential election last night, and I feel threatened because of it. I didn't like either of the candidates--except Bob Barr, but that's a dream that will never happen--this year, and I inwardly knew that Obama would win because every voter confuses Bush's neo-conservatism with McCain's classic conservative policies.
What I didn't expect was how many black people in my class would treat me and my white pupils like shit because of Obama's victory. I have been called "honky" twice today, and some other dude stared me down because I used the word "socialist" to describe his policies. I've seen so many blacks in Obama shirts you'd think he was a damn celebrity, and that brings me to my point and question.

Obama--whether or not you agree with him politically--is going to be the next leader of the United States of America: shouldn't his reign demolish such impish behavior? I, a middle class white, now feel threatened by the results of the election. The axis of racism has completely turned, and they call this change/hope/progress? Where's my voice at?

Please note, I am simply noting a trend that stems from socio-economic status; I, in no way, imply that all African Americans act this way towards whites.

Anyway, you just need to lift some weights, my friend. Once you're bigger than most people, they won't call you "honky" for fear of a beatdown.

Well i guess mostly the lower class black people will act like that seeing some of the have the ''gift'' of seeing racism in everything.... But i must say as a colored person myself Ive been threw quite some racism myself and tbh i wouldn't care if some ppl that have done racist things (without regret) them self's would experience it for them self's...

I'd say wait a few months till he takes office and see what things look like.. My hope is that we can all hold hands and sing Campfire songs.. although, I've got a feeling that these next 4 years have the correct ingredients to ignite a social firestorm in the US.. There is just no predicting what is going to happen..

Yes, I made an account to ask this question. Is it really that weird? No. I wanted some feedback from some proper guitar experts who knew what they were talking about. Sorry, I guess I was wrong.

It's true he is a god damn socialist... Come on Ayres and Wright, both very socialist... And he's a sneaky smooth talking basthard who has more income with Hitler then any other canididate we've ever had. The only god damn reason he won was some many ignorent people voted for him (mostly ignorent black people, racist statement I know, but it's ****ing true and anyone who says otherwise is just as ignorent.)


But it doesn't matter he won... If won or didn't win there will be riots. White Extremeist are going to riot and do something about him or try any ways. If he had lost then ****ing black people would riot like they did during the civil rights movement and go back to burning ****ing buildings down because they aren't getting there way. Even now we treat them better then any other god damn race and they still complain and treat whites as second class citizens as in your case. We have all these rules that are made just for whites who commit crimes against a black person and they get punished more severe then a black man who commits a crime against a white man. Reverse discrimation is taking place and we're going to see another civil rights movement, but not for blacks, but for whites... So the cycle contiunes...

So either way the country is ****ed

It sort of sounds as if, you deserved it for being a bit smug with your views in the first place? When you had discussions in class and etc. you probably started stuff off.

Politics is a waste of time anyways....

Wow. That counts as black supremacy? They can't be happy that after more than two hundred years, there is a black president, for the first time in American history?

Why don't you give Obama a chance before you start moanin' and groanin'. He hasn't even moved his shit into the White House yet, let alone act on any policies.

If you're like me, a minor, then you legally don't get a voice, which is unfair, but it is what it is. Give the man a chance first.

I voted for obama because he seemed like the lesser of two evils. Tthink about it this way: we might be in it worse if he had LOST, because black people would claim that it was racism. This is my 5th class of the day, and so far, ive heard OBAMA screamed countless times. They even put an announcement on the intercom saying basically, "yeah, its great that we made history, but shut the hell up, do your work, and quit talking about things you don't understand". By the way, my school is also predominantly black, and at one point held a record for most number of students with AIDs. I'm afraid to sit down on chairs...

Well, he's not a socialist, so that parts fair.

I find it interesting that you feel threatened after being treated for one day remotely like how African Americans were treated for years.

That said, it's still not cool.

But it'll blow over soon once Obama does something stupid.

I agree, my father said this has the "potential to cause another civil war based upon racial differences". A bit extreme of a statement, but I do see the main point: Obama's victory spells social problems. And on top of the economic problems at hand...I don't know.

While this is a true, a much funnier and quicker idea is when they call you "honky" you turn around and say, "yeah, you're a honky" then run

... Wow.... Just.... Wow....

Maybe you should read up on the civil rights movement before you spout that crap. Not all of it was violent. There were violent elements but the movement was mainly peaceful demonstrations, sit ins, marches etc.

Only the radical movements committed violent acts.

Way to summarise the whole move as violent... If anyone here is ignorant its you.

You're a racist, seriously. Sure people shouldn't call you honky for a number of reasons (what is this, 1968?), but you shouldn't feel unsafe to have a half-black president.

He's also not a socialist so that might have something to do with you getting a weird look for that.

Why do you think Barack Obama will not represent you? He, as president-elect of the United States has a duty to strive for the betterment of this nation as one people.
