Yes You Can
YES YOU CAN WHAT ABOUT YOU TIGER
OK OK OK maybe
we weren’t on the field
at Broncos Stadium
Thursday night but
we used the POWER
of our minds and a
few Rolling Rocks
To teleport ourselves to Denver for the last night of the Democratic Convention. There is NO doubt something Special is going on. Barack Obama is not the Messiah but then again neither are most so called “messiahs” throughout history. What Barack Obama is is a unique opportunity for AFRICAN American athletes to put their BS aside.
You know where we are going
with this even without the
photo above guiding you
Right to our favorite Whipping Post. The one and only INVISIBLE African American here’s Tiger. All the apolitical African American athletes who think the are so COOL try COLD for staying out of the political arena this time are exposing themselves as JERKS if they sit on the sidelines during the Obama general election campaign now underway.
And Tiger Woods has richly earned the title of Poster JERK for the entire group. In fact Tiger has a Dilemma. Publicity loving Tiger. Trend setting Tiger. Does Tiger want to be left off the A List when Obama becomes President because he did NOTHING to assist him to become President. Will Tiger abandon his I’M NOT BLACK routine to court favor with Obama ??
Gee let’s think about this. Obama has an African American father and a non-African Americans mother and Obama clearly considers himself AFRICAN American. So what’s your problem Tiger. Enough Tiger bashing he isn’t worth that much attention no matter how rich he is or how well he swings a golf club. HERE IS THE POINT ..
With or without Tiger Woods leading the way AT A MINIMUM every single professional African American athlete in Sports basically Basketball, Football and the few in Baseball should ALL each contribute $1000 or better more to the Obama Presidential campaign. Want to bet far fewer than 5% have. Then publicly add their names to Athletes for Obama and make as many public appearances for Obama as their schedules allow.
IF Tiger Woods abandoned his BS and became co-chair of Athletes for Obama along with other very famous African American athletes they could raise and donate a very large amount of money for the Campaign and maybe even more attract lots of voters Black and White to support and vote for Barack Obama and sway this election for Barack O.
Here is the only known quote TIger Woods is ever known to have made about Obama, “I’ve seen him speak. He’s extremely articulate, very thoughtful,” Woods said. “I’m just impressed at how well, basically all politicians really do, how well they think on their feet. Especially those debates. It’s pretty phenomenal to see them get their point across. But I just think that he’s really inspired a bunch of people in our country and we’ll see what happens down the road.”
Isn’t that wonderful Tiger is “impressed at how well, basically ALL politicians really do, how well they think on their feet.” Tiger supports ALL politicians because Tiger doesn’t want to lose even one endorsement dollar upsetting anyone by actually supporting Obama or anyone else.”
Maybe just maybe there are
some Black athletes out there
who are not as PATHETIC as
Tigers Woods who will enthusiastically
support Barack Obama for President
who understand their own interests
are tied to making White America
know how beautiful and how powerful
being Black in America can truly be with
Barack Obama in The WHITE House
” YES WE CAN “
