Race Deciding the VOTE; Election Day in America

Good Morning World Wide Web!  It’s always a beautiful day.  Today we are one step closer to perfection than we were yesterday.  If you’re not a mainstream media follower or outside of the U.S.A. then you may not know today is Election Day.  There are elections here every 2 and 4 years.  The election of the 4th year increment is where the president of the United States is selected.  There are two contenders; Republican candidate Governor Mitt Romney and democratic candidate President Barack Obama.  As I turn to every channel, I hear a dialogue.  One that doesn’t particularly focus on the candidate, or the issues.  I haven’t even heard much about the voters.  I’ve really only heard about the color of the voters and who will likely vote for who.  “President Obama will likely gain the black and latino vote!” I heard someone say.  “In the key state of Ohio Governor Mitt Romney will likely gain the white vote, although the vote is divided” I heard another say.  If that doesn’t SCREAM WE ARE A NATION OF RACIAL DIVIDE then I don’t really know what else can.  Imagine the very color of someone’s skin being the deciding factor as to whether they can maintain a seat in the highest office in the land.  A politically correct way to play up or down racism I assume.  It completely dodges one of the most sensitive issues of the American existence.  Well I never once heard, what about the black and white home?  What about the black and white child?  What about the asian and white or asian and black child?  Of course that of a double minority background would choose a bi-racial president.  Although I have never even once heard him referred to as a bi-racial president.  He is the “black” president according to main stream media.  It completely trumphs the fact that a white woman and a black man came together and made a child, no matter where the father is from.

Honestly I don’t see the colors black or white on the skin of either candidate.  I actually see something completely different.  I see the candidate on the left Governor Mitt Romney who is classified as “white” american here in the U.S. as a beige.  He proudly proclaims that he was born in Mexico.  I was watching Univision 2 days ago and found a complete Romney family in Mexico who is waiting in anticipation to meet their distance cousin.  They proudly showed the cameras a wall of a long line of people with the last name Romney there in Mexico!!!

That’s a super interesting video.  At least I found it to be.  Could it be?  Could it be that the one drop rule is ruled out on one side and not on the other, as long as the skin tone remains fair?  That’s another blog post.  I promise that it’s coming!  Stay tuned!

Back to politics, Of course, president Obama is of a European American Mother, and an African born father.  In America thus far we don’t call that multi-racial.  I feel that the problem is that there are millions of Obama’s that have been born in America, but most people just call them “light skinned” or “red bone” in the black community.  In some cases it becomes where lighter skin has been favored over that of dark skin.  This is yet again another blog post.  I promise it will come also.  Please stay tuned!

So fundamentally today who we are voting for, if race is based on what the eyes can see, are two men, who’s color seem to be in the same color spectrum.  It’s like deciding to paint your home and you tweak your color by a percentage to make that color that resonates in your soul.  Of course the ability for melanin to be affected can play a role on the color according to what season you’re in, but it takes you right back to the same truth; I still don’t see the color white or black.  I see two totally different colors, that are almost in the same family.  Hair colors are both black, and neither have blue eyes.   I see both candidates have a nose that’s not so small, and both have very small lips.  Hair texture; well that is where we’ll change the man.  Governor Romney has straight dark black hair with grey highlights.  I have also see this on Indian, Asian, Mexican men as well.  The hair is almost identical.  On the other hand President Obama has hair that appears to be courser.  If he could be in the white house and grow his hair out to any length beside low then his natural curls would probably display themselves.  Indeed this is another blog post.  Not all mixed children have the hair texture that would automatically distinguish them.  In this case he does.

I just took you on a journey of complete generalization, with a few facts.  That’s how we do it here in the USA.  We look at you, size you up, and which ever one you “LOOK” the most like we’ll just place you into that box.  Unfortunately, children are being born in multiracial families that are challenging this choice system for us all.  What to do about it.  Will a child from a black father and a white mother, who is born with mostly white features then become white and be able to cross racial barriers because they are white now?    Has this happened already for decades?  Yet again another post.  My goal is to raise awareness for the children being born within the group first.  Then the rest can come.  Today is an important day in America, as the commander and chief will be selected in the United States.  Unfortunately, in the current climate the choice will be made with racial bias, ignorance and hatred being factored into the vote for some in both parties.  Will more people who want to or are willing to make a difference step forward?  I would love to hear from you.  Your ideas, feedback and comments for a SOLUTION are welcome.

Thank you for tuning in.  Until the next!  MAKE sure you go and VOTE!!!!!
