Obama: Foreign Policy and the Reconciliation of Race in America
By: Ehimwenma E. Aimiuwu
(March 21, 2007)

 

One of the best things that ever happened to America in recent times is that Obama, a Black American, is running for president and America for the first time is actually going to sit down to decided if it truly wants to be united or divided along racial lines.  It is the first time in recent years that an authentic, credible, and qualified Black person who is running for the President of the United States has forced White America to understand that the descendants or relatives of their slaves, despite the fact that some have lost their names, languages, and natural origins, still possess a unique identity and worldview as Americans. White America has always maintained that their Eurocentric viewpoint is America and anything outside the box is unpatriotic, foreign, and not mainstream America.

The questions many Whites, such as Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, now ask is if Obama has the judgment, character, and honesty to be the President of the United States.  They want to know why Obama should be under an unpatriotic person like Pastor Wright, who hates America so much, for 20 years and still claims he is able to unite our great nation.  They are hoping and praying that the words of his pastor, which is considered as hate speech by White media, will discourage Whites from voting for Obama.  The actual questions that Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, and other White media fail to ask is: Is only White America the United States?  If an American questions or rebukes his government and nation, which is our constitutional right, does that person only address White America?  When one says God damn America or the American government for something bad, is he only referring to the Whites?  He is referring to all Americans including himself as a nation.  This is the arrogance and selfishness of White America that has hindered the progress and the elevation of our great nation from reaching the heights of its full potentials.

 

White America, due to their economic, social, and political majority, has refused to address and reconcile America by breaking the shackles of racism effectively by law through all aspects of life; instead they use their power to influence sycophants of other races with low mentality to diffuse the fact that some healing is needed across racial lines in our country.   They forget that every great civilization fell because of disharmony from within, but yet, they hold on to their pretence that all is okay.  Does White America care to know what Asian Americans truly feel about America’s treatment of Japan, North Korea, and Vietnam?  Do they really care to know the truth of how the Hispanics feel about America’s treatment of Panama?  What about how the Black Americans feel about America’s treatment of Liberia, Sudan, and the Black Cubans?  Are the American Arabs and American Muslims really happy about what is happening in Iraq?  White America does not care.  How they see it is the only true American way, and if you do not agree with them, then you are unpatriotic, or you will eventually lose your job and your precious White corporate friends, or can no longer move up the career path.    This is the system of not wanting to hear the truth, so they surround themselves, especially on their talk programs, with people of other races who pretend to see things as they do and ridicule others who do not.  White America fails to understand that these Americans, who do not see things as they do, probably love America more than they do, but they only show their love through the courage of speaking the truth to heal the nation they love dearly.

If White America and all well meaning Americans, who truly love their nation, are interested in the racial reconciliation of our country in every aspect of life and the improvement of our foreign policies, I recommend that we all read the book titled “The Political and Spiritual Purpose of the Holy Land” (Amazon.com).   This book clearly explains why President Bush’s years in office was a setback to America, and it also give a spiritual, historical, and political warnings if we do not take race and foreign policy seriously in the 21st century.
