I know Rick Sanchez might be disappointed that president Obama did not respond favorably to his alarm of him being the First Cotton-picking president. Sanchez could make all the excuse he wants, but it was a clear attack at blacks from a racial perspective. I have said it many times: that, no matter how high an office a black man sits, someone, a Neanderthal man, like Rick Sanchez always tries to remind a way to remind us that we are black... I know he was being politically correct when he said "First cotton-picking president, which makes another addition to the hyphenated American that black peoples are called. I could say lots of immoral things to Rick Sanchez, which could also place me in the confines of my First Amendment Right.
This, however would not make it right. Barack Obama does not need me to defend him. He is the president of the United States for crying out loud. He knew what he was getting into when he vied for the office of presidency, which I say, “As I black man I am very proud for the tremendous job he has done. Again, the president does not need my or Rick Sanchez’s assurance that he is doing a terrific job. There are Washington political watchdogs, and I mean these who are politically and racially unbiased, who would have acted if He was deemed unqualified. I would like to take this time to address Rick to let him know that Barack Obama has not hidden the fact that he is from an African descendant, but guess what, we are all, aren't we? He has claimed being from the South, which might be right. Frankly he has used his journalistic popularity to rationalize his behavior.
But again Ricky-boy you couldn't be anyone wrong(er). What are you going to tell your children, if you have any, when they ask you what have you done to abridge racial divides, especially when they might be the ones who are trying to be truthful about racial problems? Children know about racial disparity and they are doing a lot to bring about change. But what good do you do the process when they (these children of today) take one step forward and you do two steps backward? The fact that you blatantly lie about it makes it even worse. Let me get back a bit to this name-calling: I have to admit that Rich Sanchez has acted in the confines of his First Amendment Right—this amendment privileges him this right to express himself...which is ok period. Well, not all that ok. This is like knowing someone is hungry and you actually taunt him or her with food. The problem like I said are we seeing men as human being rather placing them in categories based of the color of their skins and not by the content of their character. If president is not an American, which is the biggest (dis)respect out there, or if he is a Muslim, which seems to be another controversial issue them the latter, which is a First Amendment protector, makes him
Ok. I am quite sure Rick Sanchez’s family is Cuban, which makes him an offspring of Cuban heritage. Why would or should it parent being Cuban or wherever they are from cause any condensation to his citizenship? Oh, I know he might be just shy of saying he is a white American because everyone sees him as white until he opens his mouth. Many like me could say he came to America on the proverbial raft, but that would be playing up on or into his and or my idiosyncrasies. Unquestionably, blacks have made many strides in this country; those that are positive we have to embrace and the first black presidency is one of them. We have cried and we have rejoiced when minority albeit Hispanic or any other racial person makes strides in this competitive society.
When Gandhi was in India fasting for the struggle of his people there were black people who rallied behind him and similarly with Martin Luther King's march for unity in these United States. When a white America does or says something that is anti-black it is derogatory. It is even more despicable when someone--especially someone who has made a claim that he or she is white said something or anything derogatorily against another race. Again, I said Rick Sanchez can say all he wants that that is a common expression used in the South. What we call this in the real world is a Cop out, which is also the biggest racial crap I ever heard.
Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt, for he apologized. There are many things that need not said about him. We would hope that Rick Sanchez remember reporting the news objectively will make him popular but there are a lot more that goes with being someone of integrity and this go way more than at the surface of the skin. The news should be unbiased with neutral perspective as all journalists should thrive to report them. Call President Obama the First Cotton-picking president this country will ever have, which has made him another first. But let's see him; nevertheless, as a president who is making effort to take the country out of one of the worst financial situation it has ever been. This name-calling was not nice—and the apology was not even adequate. What more can I say. An attack is just an attack and there is nothing we can do about it.
