Ho Sit Down: Over the Hill Civil Rights Gang Keep Dissin’ Barack

Andrew Young Barack Obama

Now is when the political thuggin begins. Someone needs to tell the old “over the hill” civil rights gang their time is up, that old sh*t is not working. Former Atlanta mayor Andrew Young and Hilary Clinton’s camp have some things to say about our man Barack Obama:

“It is not a matter of being inexperienced,” Young told an Atlanta crowd this fall. “It is a matter of being young. There is a certain matter of maturity … You have to have a protective network around you… Leadership requires suffering. And I would like to see Barack’s children get a little older, see, because they’re going to pick on them.”

“To put a brother in there by himself is to set him up for crucifixion.” He also joked that author Toni Morrison may have been on to something when she referred to former President Bill Clinton as the “first black president.”

“Bill (Clinton) is every bit as black as Barack,” he said. “He has probably gone out with more black women than Barack.”

Young’s remarks come as Obama is battling with Hillary for support in the black community. Rev. Jesse Jackson, who had endorsed Obama, has been critical of the presidential candidate in recent weeks. Rev. Al Sharpton has said that he has not decided if he will support Obama.

An advisor from Hilary Clinton Camp states:

“Senator Obama is a fabulous orator, but we need more than words. We don’t need someone who says one thing and does another, somebody who talks a good game but doesn’t have the courage of their convictions. And on issue after issue, Senator Obama says one thing and does another.”

Al Sharpton, Messy Jesse Jackson, and Andrew Young get a big, Ho Sit Down! It’s 2007, you’re time is up!

    What in the hell? If that’s the case. OJ, Keenan Ivory, and every other man who has dated white women and like Mayonnaise are white.

    P.S.

    Just to show the hypocrisy and double standard. If Imus said the exact same thing he would be fired again.

    Are you like the “double standard and hypocrisy” detective or something? How would he be fired for saying that?

    Hey, let’s get rid of all the Civil Rights legislations and see how old school Civil Rights is, k?

    If Imus said “Bill (Clinton) is every bit as black as Barack there would be some idiots claiming he is racist. This guy just like Al and Jesse need to go sit down and enjoy their golden years.

    So because Obama’s kids are young, he shouldn’t run for president? What type of ignorant mess is that? It sounds like Mr. Young would say anything out of fear that Obama will succeed. But you can’t keep a good brotha down!

    Delurking to say..

    Have people forgotten that Martin Luther King didn’t see his 40th Birthday?

    It is actually UNNATURAL to have movement leaders old enough to collect social security.

    They can see the writing on the wall. Just look at what a bunch of 20 and 30-something bloggers have accomplished in the past year.

    The baton wil either be passed or our generation should rip it from their hands.

    This is ridiculous.

    The Clinton have the power and ability to give these guys positions and line their pockets. Thats all.

    Obama is doing pretty well on his own without the backing of these so called “leaders”.

    Well if leadership is about suffering there should never have been and there should never be another white man as president. WTF do they know about suffering??? There should only be minority presidents. He’s an idiot!!!!

    @Gem2001

    Good point.^^^ They need to pass the torch b/c there aren’t enough of them to fight the fight anymore… but I guess they think we are too young and inexperienced.

    I agree with that statement. I mean Barrack has touched on some issues that are concerning Blacks but he has to touch on the issues of everyone not just Blacks. Civil Rights leaders are for that and fighting for our rights to have equality and justice in this counntry. To say that they are irrevelant? No..I wouldn’t say that but they are ol’ skool in handling situations that concern blacks of today..with that said I do think they should be easy on Barrack get the brotha a chance to prove himself. He was doing good here as an Illinois senator. But to say that Bill was more black than Barrack is a bit of a stretch

    Sorry, And…, but your detection is wrong, since the only folks I’ve been hearing this “Bill is the first black president” from is Black folks. Where I’m from, a lot of black folks blindly supported Bill Clinton.

    I haven’t seen any politician yet worth voting for Barack or Hillary….nobody is talking bout the crazy rise in gas, or the housing market reaching above to where middle class people can’t even afford the lowest monthly payment on a house…every second the black community is being pushed into low income housing and projects and losing their houses they’ve worked hard for, but some kind of way America has money for this expensive war and money to keep the entertainers paid so that America is still know as the country of great entertainment…so either way none of the candidates priorities are truly straight…everyone skips over the healthcare question so is the people…the everyday people…the ones who actually vote…are their interests at heart to these politicians?

    nahnah!!!!!!!!

    don’t do it!!! they ain’t ready for it yet! Who is Obama? What does he stand for? Where was he and what was he doing when Sean Bell was wrongfully shot? Hurricane Katrina? The L.A. Uprisings? What was his position on any of that? What is his position on political prisoners and on actually impeaching Bush?

    all i can say is, Obama comes from the stock (on both sides of the atlantic) that put ur family in chains. believe that. if i’ma vote for a puppet, i’d vote for Lambchop.
