The REAL Reason Why We Love Obama!
Soon to be president Barack Obama is a loved figure by many blacks in this day and age.
Many say that if Obama is killed (God forbid of course) before or during his campaign they will go crazy in the streets and there will be no peace (even though they dont say that when a brother is wrongly arrested or shot by a policeman).
We all identfy with him in some way.
Many of us see him as a symbol of progress and change in the American political system.
There is no doubt that a conspicuously obvious Black man would definately rock the foundation of this nation (which was built on the brutal killing and near genocidal destruction of native americans and the massive killing and enslavement of captured afrikans).
But i think Obama represents more than just a mere physical presence of someone who looks like us as the leader of this nation.
I think its a lot more deeper than that psychologically.
Obama will not only be the father of this country but i think he stands as a surrogate or substitute father figure for many of us who either has one thats missing or has a bad relationship with the one thats around.
Think about it.
Almost all of us have a non-existent, or at best, a rocky relationship wit our fathers (some of us of course do have a great relationship with our daddies and some of our fathers may have passed but before they died we had a good relationship with them).
Many of us may despise him and might have actually been treated bad by him.
So we dont see why they are worthy of being looked up to.
But not Obama.
Obama publicly exemplifies everything we wish we could be like.
Intelligent, sophisticated, cool, a great provider.
He exemplifies what we most want in a father.
He's a substitute (not the real thing).
And unless he does something that cannot under any circumstances be forgiven, he can stay in the white house and be the model of that father son/daughter relationship that we wish we had.
And many of us will protect his image with our lives because if somebody attacks obama it's like attacking a family member (or even more so us personally because we identify so much with him).
Another function he might serve to many balck women.
He might serve as a surrogate lover for them who dont presently have a man or really doesnt like the one that they're with lol.
Its also easy to see why this may be.
He's handsome to many black women im sure.
He caring (takes wonderful care of his wife and children, and we all know that the men who get the most play are the ones who are already taken (we want what we cant have)).
He's wanted by many women all over this world (which makes him more appealing to women im sure).
That lazy nigga laying on the couch eating popcorn in his draws aint smooth like obama.
That broke ass busta always tryina hit you up for money aint no where near as romantic and charming as obama.
At least he got a job right lol?
I play too much im sorry!
But yeah, Obama serves some vital psychological needs that we arent getting from anywhere else.
This is just my opinion i could be wrong im not perfect.
Im into psychology and i know that we are always looking for people to model if we dont have appropriate ones in our lives already.
And before i rap it up lets spread the love to the WHITE people who love Obmaa!
Why are they so head ove heels with this guy?
White people are filled with GUILT because they are very aware of the harm that they've done to us as Black people in america (and continue to do to us in the inner cities of this counrty BTW).
They are always looking for ways to assuage that guilt.
Voting for a Black president is the perfect way to take away the pain so they can rationalize in their own mind that they arent racist because they voted for a black man to head this nation.
I guarantee you the public relations industry in this country has figured all of this out.
But that's just my opinion.
PLEASE DONT HURT ME, PLEASE!
I'm very delicate lol.
