Friday FISH FRY: Obama... American for Beer: "The Kiss and Make Up Session Seen Around The World"


I never thought I'd do this but today is that day where, quite frankly, I just don't give a F**K!

Dear President Obama,

Let me start off by saying that I am touched that someone of your stature would take time out of your day to address issues that have received national attention but are not national issues by nature. I do believe that we have a President that I, personally, can relate to and have full confidence that he can feel my struggles as well as the many young black men that have endured institutionalized racism, discrimination, and outright prejudice.

Now that I've gotten that out of the way... It's time for your FISH FRY.

With regards to your intervention or as I am now calling it, "The kiss and make up session seen around the world", I felt that it was over the top and relatively extra for a President and Vice President of the free world to give rise to such a miniscule news story. Furthermore, I very seriously doubt that if you and Prof. Gates had not had any prior relationship to this incident, that you would do the same for any other random black man that has been victimized by discriminatory police procedure.

Dr. MLK, Jr. once said, "An injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere." This quote is applicable on so many levels. First, I do honestly believe that this particular news tory is a microcosm of a larger issue. The media has made an example/circus out of it and as well, so has the President of the US. Everyday there is some form of discrimination taking place and not just in the black community but in the latino community and even in the white community. Although these incidents do not receive such national attention, they are still injustices and should be addressed on the same platform.

But, it would be ridiculous to call in the millions of Americans who have been victimized by discrimination to the white house for beer... now wouldn't it?

I applaud your efforts to unite Americans by this single act of kindness through a display of camaraderie and civil discussion. However, I do not believe that this solves anything for either men. With that being said, I do not want my President to waste his time on such an isolated incident when North Korea is pointing nuclear weapons at us, the Senate has a Democratic majority but still won't pass the President's bills to ultimately improve life for all Americans, and we are STILL at war.

And can somebody tell me why we are STILL at war? Thats a whole other discussion within itself.

Overall, Mr. President, I think you are a stand up guy. I would love to have a beer with you and discuss my daily frustrations as a black man in America but somehow, I just don't think that will ever happen. Thats not to say that you are just too busy for me because obviously, you can set aside time for your old college professor and the officer that arrested him. I'm just saying that maybe you SHOULD be too busy to set aside the time for me, Prof. Gates, Officer Crowley, or any other American that has been discriminated against in such a manner.

President Obama, please don't make me fry your ass up anymore. I didn't want it to come to this. But just as Prof. Gates' issue is a microcosm of a larger issue, so is the way you have handled this one incident.

Today's FISH FRY is brought to you by the good folks over at the white house who, obviously, have nothing better to do at this time and are probably reading this along with you all.

Also, in part by North Korea who apparently wants some attention too:

That is an amazing example. I do appreciate his concern for the situation, and he does continue to speak out about things that have affected our struggle as people, but he won't have time to speak to all of us about our issues. The problem stems from the media making him look like a "camera whore", by reporting and video taping EVERYTHING! We don't care about what kind of beer they drink, or who drinks it with him let the man do his job. That's where I think the true problem lies, he did it as a way to pacify him calling the man stupid! Although he did not say it like that, he was calling the actions stupid...on a sly LOL. Anyway, I hope that he somehow finds a way to hide from the media and get the attention about the bigger issues that affect our nation! He shouldn't let them report about every little thing, ok we like him, but we don't need to see everything he does. It's a bit annoying and I feel like they are just trying to downgrade him as a president and make him look like the average joe running the white house. I want him to have a lil bit more respect in the future.

The cameras are always on and waiting to catch President Obama slip up and prove all the nay-sayers right. They want President O to have little tea parties on the white house lawn while this health care reform bill isn't being advanced in any way and while North Korea threatens to blow away 2/3 of America.

I just want the President to be a little more aggressive in other issues as he has been in this particular issue. Granted, he called the officer stupid but I feel where he was coming from because I'm sure that he has also been a victim of police discrimination. Its all in the way you handle things. This time, the President gets a C-, take the course over again next year.
