The race baiters are biting the hand that would feed them

I'm still undecided about who I'll vote for this November but I realized this morning that I'm becoming more and more disenchanted with Obama, and that disenchantment has nothing to do with anything he's said or done. First of all, I'm sick to death of Rev. Wright, the retired pastor of the church Obama attended in Chicago, who rode the gravy train right out of the city and straight into a million dollar mansion paid for with church funds. This man rallies against rich white folk and claims to care so much about the struggling poor black folk yet he lives along side those white devils and happily drives a Mercedes to speaking engagements where he continues to spout his hatred for this country and for many of it's citizens. Then there's Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Jesse, especially, had so much potential 20 years ago. Now he's just another race baiter, waiting for an opportunity, any opportunity, to try to split this country apart on the basis of race. Both he and Sharpton have promised (threatened) huge demonstrations if Obama is not chosen as the nominee at the convention. They recently demonstrated in New York City after a JURY found several police officers not guilty in the shooting death of an unarmed black man late one night. I have no idea if they were guilty or not, that was up to the jury to decide, that's what our system of government dictates. Sharpton and Jackson were on board with the court system until they didn't get the verdict they wanted. They're on board with the electorial system...unless they don't get the nominee they want. Then it's back to the same old, same old...demonstrations in the streets, destruction of public and private property, and further division of racial groups. All three of these men are not so much "Pro African American" as they are "Anti Everyone Else". I'm not sure I want to spend the next four years wondering what situation will come up that will give them cause to take to the streets again in support of "their" president. I'm not sure if I'd rather they went back to sleep and let those of us who are not race baiters and race haters continue to work together on a daily basis as we have been.
