Obama safe from skinheads, but what about supporters?

So by now we’ve all seen the story about the skinhead kids who were planning this murder spree where they would be going across the country murdering and decapitating black folks, right? Right. And I’m assuming this story doesn’t come to any of us as much of a shock.

Right?

Because as thrilled as many of us may be that Obama is about to become the first black President of the United States, we still know where it is we wake up every morning, right? Sure, it’s a new day, a new dawn, and all of that. And it’s a wonderful thing to behold. But it’s a new day for the skinheads too, and their new day isn’t shaping up so great. Which, of course, would explain the urge to cut black heads and murder black children in schools.

Right.

Here’s the thing: I’ve been reading a lot of posts elsewhere about how worried and concerned a lot of folks are about the safety of Barack Obama. I understand that, and he should definitely be careful. But keep in mind that there are 45 years’ worth of “protection” technology and experience separating the murder of JFK and today.

This hardly means that Barack’s safety is 100 percent guaranteed, but I will guarantee you that his safety is much more assured than that of someone wearing an Obama baseball cap strolling through unfriendly territory at the wrong time of day – or night – with the wrong pissed-off anti-Obama crowd hanging out nearby like a bunch of drooling cro-magnons who haven’t been served their portion of raw meat for the day.

Look, all you have to do is listen to some of the things being said at McCain/Palin rallies, and that should give you a good idea of just how pissed off these folks really are. Once Obama does win this thing, they ain’t gonna  be in the mood to hold hands and start singing “We Are the World.” I mean, if the Hillary hardcore is still frothing at the mouth, where do you think that leaves the white supremacists?

So am I talking race war? Hell no. Hell no. Hell no. How could I be with all these white folks out here screaming Obama’s name with tears streaming down their cheeks like they’re at a Beatles concert? What I am talking about is common sense and preparation. Because when Obama says that true change is painful and hard? That it’s not easy?

Yeah, well. Git ready folks. We’re about to meet the Real America, warts and all…
