Reaction to Cover of NEW YORKER Magazine

Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

A whole bunch of folks are upset that negative comments are being made about a Black man campaigning to be elected President of the United States of America.

Even his opponent, John McCain, hurriedly rushes to show he's on the right side, by expressing his outrage at any negative comments towards Barack Hussein Obama.

Well, so what?

Would you like to know what America would be like with a Black president in the White House?

Just take a look at Washington, D.C., where the municipal government, the majority of the population, and most business institutions are Black.

I live in Washington, D.C. at the Ol' Soldiers' Home.

We used to have a military retreat ceremony each afternoon, where the flag was lowered as the bugle sounded.

Reaction was starkly divided mostly along racial lines.

For the most part, White military veterans would pause or rise to their feet, snap to attention, and render order arms.

But, the Black veterans, with very few exceptions, would refuse to acknowledge the colors, and Black employees would just ignore the bugle.

One day, I was walking through the lobby of the Sheridan Building, the dormitory where I live, when I overheard a Black military veteran loudly announcing to a group of other Black military veterans that the White Man was the most dangerous terrorist in the World.

Here at the Ol' Soldiers' Home, we live with the daily sound of gunfire and sirens on all sides.

Most of the local Black population actually seems to relish living down to the very worst perception of their negative stereotypes, as they slur their speech, engage in public profanity, dress sloppily, exhibit a remarkable dearth of intellect, and with obvious lack of motivation, perform slovenly at their tasks.

Martin Luther King, Jr. is quoted as saying he hoped his children would be judged, not for the color of their skin, but the content of their character.

Well, it's "the content of their character" which causes people like me to be racially prejudiced towards Black people.

Unfortunately, in this election, John McCain can't be trusted, either.

So, who do we vote for?

Thank you.
