“Romney is very, very comfortable; it seems, with people who are like him. That’s one of the reasons why he seems so stiff and awkward in some town hall settings, why he can’t relate to people other than that”. A quote by Joe Williams of Politico, who was fired after his comments. This shows that Candidate Romney can never be Black enough or comfortable around those who don’t look like him – this includes people with a different skin color them him.

Washington, DC (IBNN/Political Editorial/June 30, 2012)…As quiet as it’s be kept, no one asked to see a copy of GOP endorsed presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s birth certificate. Businessman Donald Trump hasn’t used the mainstream media to launch a one-man campaign to find the origins of Mr. Romney. Who is this s silver tongue, upper class, White millionaire who wants to “Take back America?” More importantly, what does taking back America really mean?
Willard Mitt Romney is an American businessman and the Republican Party’s man to beat the Black president in the 2012 election for President of the United States. It can be said; some people do live in a fantasy world obsessed with the desire, which is skewed in rhetoric with a sidebar of just plain crazy.
If we really want to answer the question about Mitt Romney’s Blackness, we must look at the historical implications of being Black in America.
In 1863, 99% of white Americans opposed freeing slaves. This Fourth of July 2012, 99% of all white Americans still oppose reparations for those slaves’ descendants. Mitt Romney and the Republican Party of America don’t see any value in creating a fair playing field for people of color in the United States. This includes women, GLBT’s, and people of color.
History must read that the first Black President of the United States, Barack Obama held office for a successful two-terms. Only then can Black America begin to heal from the holocaust, which said we (Blacks) were only one-sixth of a man and it was forgivable to sell, trade, beat, imprison and kill a race of people brought to this country against their free-will to build what is now the United States of America.
Can Mitt Romney really handle the truth?
Let’s take a closer look.
The Republican Party that did away with Slavery was the same Republican Party that that only supported Freedmen up until the late 1800′s, still for a source of cheap (real cheap) labor.
Needless to say, the Republican Party back then, still only worked in their best interests while Jim Crow and Black Codes further buried Blacks in America; of course the KKK did the rest. Think about the conversations and letters between Jefferson and DuBois. Are Black people really only one-sixth of a White man?
Some Blacks tend to get real pissed off when folks say, “The Republican Party is the Party of the late Dr. Martin Luther King.” Yes, it’s true – MLK was an “active” Republican because the “active” Republican Party back then “ENGAGED” what he was about and what he wanted all Americans to have.
Today, in 2012 – that doesn’t apply. The Republican Party of America is hell-bent on getting a Negro out of office. They haven’t had any plans to assist job growth for poor Whites or anyone else in the United States. The political infrastructure of 2012 is one of money, favoritism and popularity, it has nothing to do with politics; this goes for both Democrats and Republicans, one group takes votes for granted – the other ignores any American whose a shade darker than khaki or gay.
It wouldn’t matter if Mitt Romney were Black; he’s still not the best man for the job.
If you want to talk about Obama-Care, you might need to look very closely at Massachusetts where the Gov. Romney passed and implemented something pretty close to what Republican hypocrites are against. Romney has tried to distance himself from that law, which was a model for President Obama’s sweeping health care reform upheld by the Supreme Court last week. We know it’s not a perfect solution but it’s a good start.
So to answer the question, “Is Mitt Romney Black enough to be President of the United States,” we also have to ask, how long will it take for the Republican Party of America to rip open the tent and invite all people in. Having a plan is better than empty attacks on a Black president.
I have a feeling the GOP will probably start to learn it’s lesson after President Obama’s second-term, and during Hillary Clinton’s first term as the first female president of the United States. Some people don’t get it; being Black is not just a skin color, it’s a state of mind when put to use can be very powerful.
Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is powerless against Blackness…in 2012, and in 2016 the GOP will be powerless against Hillary Clinton.
