Why I Am No Longer
An African American

by Mary Baker - September 12th, 2009 - American Thinker

The Obama election was a milestone in our country's history. Blacks danced in the streets, talked about feelings of finally being able to feel at home in America, and cried for the cameras. But as a black woman in the Age of Obama, I don't see anything that reveals that Blacks in America have anything to celebrate.


The Founders of this country envisioned a nation that would secure the God-given rights of its citizens. The desire that every citizen born in this country would not suffer the oppression they endured under England's rule, set as the backdrop for guaranteeing freedom for all Americans. The Founders especially desired that our nation would be one ruled and protected by our Creator God. Many beg to differ, but the Founders' insistence that God guide the ways of this nation is apparent in their acknowledgement of His hand in the creation of life, the rights of life, and the prosperity of life.

It is these principles that make me proud to just be an American. So, I select for my identity the title of American.

There is little argument that most of those who claim the identity of African-American are honkey hating racists who despise our nation and wish it ill. It is my opinion that Barack Hussein Obama is one of these. Yet there are many in the black community who do not hate whites and do not hate America. I have a real fear - whether those of good faith in our two races can stop this Marxist hate monger and his socialist followers before he destroys our nation.
