African American Blacks to Obama: Back Off February 10, 2007

Posted by chuckwh in News and politics.

Jimmy Strange is 14 years old. He lives on the “other” side of Madison Street in Chicago. That’s the part that has been partitioned from Oak Park and the Frank Lloyd Wright homes that show up in Architectural Digest.

It’s where the liquor stores are. It’s where Jimmy lives.

Architectural Digest doesn’t talk about the other side. Actually, nobody does.

Hell, his last name isn’t even Strange, it’s just how he feels living next to Oak Park, living in a home where his mother works about 50 jobs a day (as he last recalled), and his best friend, a fat boy named Walter, was shot down about two blocks away about, Jimmy thinks, two years ago.

Ask Jimmy about Barack Obama and he’ll only get nervous.

That is probably why we’re hearing that Obama doesn’t relate to blacks.

Hey. Houston to Black America: Read history. He’s your best bet.

Go for it, or not, but, seriously?

Don’t blow it for the rest of us.

Remember the whole Ralph Nader thing?
