Now for the Blue side....


It would not be fair to not blog on the DNC they way I blogged on the RNC. The problem is….. I have nothing truly negative to say about the DNC. I’m a Democrat and an Obama supporter. I have not been disappointed.

I will say this. I am a democrat because I chose to be. When I 1st registered to vote, I registered as an Independent. I wanted the freedom to vote my conscious without feeling like I was welching on my word. I don’t get why they make you choose in the 1st place. It has to do with who’s eligible to vote in the primaries. And for that I understand. I have cast presidential primary votes for Barack Obama and Al Sharpton. I would not have been able to do that unless I was registered as a Democrat. But the rest of that is straight ridiculous. One should ALWAYS vote one’s conscious. And when I truly did the knowledge on the parties and accepted that the Republicans did not have my interests at heart; I registered as a Democrat.

Democrats represent my interests. Case closed. I am a Black, female, educated, student loan paying, check to check living, middle class individual. I am not a white, male, rich corporation. So my voice and my needs must be heard if I expect to survive and navigate this age. Democrats do that. Republicans don’t.

Also, I don’t know President Obama personally. He doesn’t know me either. It would be insane for me to expect a person who doesn’t know I exist to hook me up. A lot of Black people expect that. The job description of the POTUS is to administrate for the masses of folks that live in this country.

One of the things I noticed about the DNC was its diversity. There were all kinds of people there. Rich, working class, old, young, gay, straight, military and every color of the rainbow. It was the melting pot that America is supposed to be. Melting pot is not my word or even a phrased coined by Original people. It’s their (devil’s) word; yet they want to keep America American. What they mean is they want to keep America white with a few coloreds to do the work they don’t want. I actually am concerned that should the President be re-elected the Republican party will fold. They are to ridiculous to be taken seriously. They are the party of they mystery good and not doing the knowledge. They manipulate their followers (4:14 & 28:40) with emotion, propaganda and rhetoric. None of which are truthful. I worry that the tea party will emerge as a legitimate party. That is scary.

I loved the speeches and I loved how every single American has been represented. The Democratic party is the party of thinking individuals. I expect them to prevail. But that is me, Serenity. In the back of my mind I know there is a contingency of people who dislike the president because he is Black. If Obama had been a white man (with a white name) and done everything exactly how he has worked this last term, I would have no doubt that he would be re-elected. Because he is a Black man, there is a certain group of people who feel like a Black man in the highest office is unacceptable. Those people worry me. But the Republicans are doing their part to alienate folks who would have voted their way. I think what is going to eventually happen is the alienated Republicans will chose to abstain from voting rather than vote for the Black man. That way their consciouses will be clear and they can sit at home and hate on this Black man.

Did y’all not love Michelle Obama’s and Bill Clinton’s speeches? They put on front street the President’s accomplishments this term. That should speak for itself. But if it doesn’t to you, consider this…. President Obama kept every single one of his 2008 campaign promises. He 11:14’d. Do you? Has he not shown and proven that he is worthy of our support? He has mine.

Tonight is the President’s speech. I am all excited and isht. I will be tweeting and facebooking the entire speech. Then tomorrow I will download the speech to paper and analyze the hell out of it.

This is how America works. Learn the process.
