This is the kind of “Negro Madness” and foolishness I was just talking about recently and posted to my Facebook page 2 weeks ago. Where (some) many black people on a global scale are under the illusion and impression, and has been since 2008 during the first election when Obama was elected or selected as President (depending on how you’re looking at the situation, and if you’re playing close attention and viewing and listening smartly how propaganda is being used effectively against the people throughout American politics and etc ?) But still remains the case 4 years later now that President Obama has been recently re-elected as President of the United States of America (United States Corporation of America) on November 7th 2012. Thinking some how President Obama is some kind of Savior (Jesus) or Messiah sent here to help us as (black people) to get us out of the problems we’re in, or that we face as Black people here in America and around the world. When truthfully speaking no real man, or non-real man, or invisible man, and or supreme being, can save us as black people from our problems or fix our problems, only we as black people can save ourselves from the problems we face and are in on a global scale.
However thanks to Jamie Foxx, comedian, actor & singer, re-affirming foolishly, what I was just talking about 2 weeks ago on my Facebook page. By making a statement as such, during a previous recording of the 2012 Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas that recently aired to the public on Nov. 25th 2012 (last night). Quoted as saying “First of all, give an honor to God and our Lord and Savior Barack Obama ! Barack Obama !” As the audience mostly black, clap in agreeing with him as he foolishly made that statement. SMH !
Whether Jamie Foxx was being humorous in his statement that remains to be seen, or possibly was seeing how he’s a comedian, but in actuality as it comes down to it, some (many) black people seriously do think though “President Obama,” was some how sent down to us as (black people) upon a heavenly being as our Lord and Savior/Messiah, especially when it comes to the religious fanatics. But as always I’m sure, this statement will make controversial headlines by Christians, not finding this funny.
As much as I am an admire of Jamie Foxx as an entertainer and respect him as a person and as a black man and has respect some of the things he has done in the past and currently. That statement he made was foolish and stupid on his part, and can leave him regretting later down the line when this is all over done and said, when President Obama completes his second term as President for making such a silly ass statement like that.
Not to mention this type of dangerous thinking is nothing new, for African people not only here in America, but was the case and still is the case on a global scale as well, as you will see in this article as you read below. When President Obama travel to Ghana 3 years ago. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/jul/10/obama-ghana-visit-africans-vox-pop
Also, Dr. Marimba Ani, author of Yurugu: An African-Centered Critique of European Cultural Thought and Behavior (book), talks about the “Dangers on the Messianic Tendencies” in this short video audio clip here below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0X674CpGO2Y
“The crucifixion of the president was meant metaphorically, My intent was not to compare him to Jesus.”~Michael D’Antuono
D’Antuono blamed the controversy on conservative media “trying to promote the idea that liberals believe the president to literally be our savior.”
I’m surely not buying that quote from the artist of this painting, and it seem to me very much he was trying to compare President Obama to Jesus. Despite he blames it on the conservative media, that they were trying to promote or sale the ideal that liberals bought into the president literally being their savior. But really in actuality as I have mention earlier on, in my post there are (some) many black people who do literally think he is our savior/messiah. But whether the artist intentions were good or not, it still leaves the notion that (some) many black people and others think he is their savior sent upon from some heavenly being to save us from evil and our problems. So basically it still defeats the purpose to create an image like this, because it still sends the wrong kind of message to those who do literally think like this.
