Resident embecile, corrupt politician, and former Illinois governor, Rod Blagojevich, has made headlines once again by suggesting that he is “blacker” than our President. I mean, yesterday it was Sen. Harry Reid taking us back to Reconstruction with the “Negro dialect” gaffe. Now, Blago insists because of his inner city upbringing that he is more ethnic than Obama.
Blago stated: “I’m blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived.” He also added, “I saw it all growing up.”
Umm yeah, ok Rod, you’re kidding right?!?!?! Why doesn’t he just go ahead and say he’s “Blacker” than Obama because he’ll be on trial later this year for corruption?? That’s a great way to prove your blackness … THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM! ::eyeroll::
Maybe my mind won’t go there, why is it that certain people are so fascinated with how DIFFERENT Obama may be from Black people. What kind of Black people are they meeting??? Obama is not the first biracial man, or Harvard Law graduate, or intellectual person of color I’ve met. I applaud all of his achievements as the first African-American president. But, the more other people open their mouths, it shows why Obama has earned his place in history. Blago can crawl back into the reality show pit from whence he came, since he’ll be on Celebrity Apprentice in the spring!
