"Elitism is the belief or attitude that those individuals who are considered members of the elite — a select group of people with outstanding personal abilities, intellect, wealth, specialized training or experience, or other distinctive attributes — are those whose views on a matter are to be taken the most seriously or carry the most weight; whose views and/or actions are most likely to be constructive to society as a whole; or whose extraordinary skills, abilities or wisdom render them especially fit to govern . Alternatively, the term elitism may be used to describe a situation in which power is concentrated in the hands of the elite."
Okay, so now that we know what elite means I think we can try to understand the characterization of the "O" man as being an elitist, out of touch, snob.
It's funny, because I thought that is what A-merry-cans wanted in their leaders, someone who is elite. I mean aren't all of A-merry-ca's leaders wealthy? Google how many millionaires are in the U.S. Senate. How much money did the Clinton's make over the past few years again? Extraordinary skills? If you ask most A-merry-cans they will tall you that many of their past Presidents and leaders were blessed with extraordinary skills and talents. Aren't those the same qualities that an elite person is supposed to possess? I submit to you that A-merry-cans wanted their Presidents to be elite. That is, until, this potential President. This one, they don't want to be elite. "There is nothing a white man with a penny hates more than a nigger with a nickle." Sorry "O" man, no elitism or uppity behavior from you. Here in A-merry-ca we will not tolerate an uppity black man. That trait is reserved for our white Presidents and Presidential candidates (Even when they are dumb like the frat boy). Sorry, but they see the Harvard law degree and think affirmative action. Like Gerri Ferraro they don't think you would be here without the benefit of your skin color. I thought you knew that?
So "O" man I know you are really trying to seem like the white as well as black candidiate, but you might want to change your message just a little bit. Do not tell poor and small town white people that they are poor and come from a small town. They don't need your black Ivy League educated, big city ass reminding them how fucked up their condition is. John McCain can tell them that, even Hillary, but not you "O" man, in their minds, their skin color is all that they have over you. Don't take that away, or you will lose their vote for sure.
So in the future, try to be a little smarter. For someone with a white mama you sure don't understand white folks. It's that damn Michelle isn't it? She just blackened you up too much. Well it's time to get in touch with your white side. Don't worry about black folks, they are going to vote for you no matter what. (90% here in Philly in spite of Mayor Nutter's pronouncements). Black folks will know what you are doing, and why you are doing it. (if it wasn't for that damn FAKE NEWS no one would have even known about your preacher.)
Next time say something like: Black people in the inner cities are bitter and frustrated. This is why they drink and take drugs. This is why they kill each other. And this is why the old people go to church every Sunday morning. That is what you should have said. Then you wouldn't be having these problems, and having such a hard time getting back on message. Then white folks in Wal Mart A-merry-ca would have been cheering their asses off, and would have been saying: right on Obama. Man that Obama sure rocks! He sure told those blacks about themselves. That's the kind of Negro we need in the white house, one that is not afraid to tell it like it is and will not pull any punches..... Oh well, back to the drawing board.
