It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted and while there are many reasons I will now state that I will be posting several times a week, if not daily. Here is why: http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/01/opinion/brazile-race-sununu/index.html
It is basically what I have seen and heard myself–people are, if anything, more racist than they were prior to President Obama’s election but they are expressing it in different and rather cloaked ways. I’ve heard “I”m not an Obama person” from a white woman living in Florida, “People are excited. They want to get Obama out of office” from a white worker in New Hampshire as well as ads linking President Obama to socialism, perhaps ones you have seen running lately. Near where I live there have been swastikas spray painted on some rather hidden rocks–classic white supremacist strategy, no matter the age.
There are too many scientific and medical advances to stay tied to old ways of thinking. Soon we will have enhanced people–soldiers who have had missing limbs replaced with bio-robotic prosthesis under full neurological control, biologically manipulated exo-skeletons and brain implants for uses beyond treating diseases like Parkinson’s where they are already in place in patients by the hundreds of thousands. This is not science fiction, it is current reality.

Now that this reality is facing us it is absolutely time to send to the ancient, outmoded and unneeded junk pile all racist stereotypes, everywhere and starting with MLB team name and logos. More on this soon since the World series is over this seems a perfect time to start contacting management, media, players, of America’s National Pastime–no matter who wins the election, which thankfully is happening very soon.
