Greening the ghetto, not the white house

According to the New York Times Van Jones, of the Green for All and Greening the Ghetto movements and environmental czar for the Obama administration was forced to resign. Apparently his too Angela Davis or Bill Ayers looking past was too much for some of the politicians who kowtow to the Glenn Beck crowd(WTF). The New Yorker published a very good article on the man that would later go on to the White House to my great surprise.Of course he is radical! He is talking about African Americans empowering themselves and has attempted to do so with his non profits. and that is scary stuff because you can be This to me says a LOT about Obama and about the continued oppression of African Americans. This country is very interesting. You can say anything you want as long as it doesn't effectively challenge the status quo. Heck you can even have a so called African American president. As far as I am concerned I don't get the African American thing. Yes he is part American and part African but he is clearly identified with the black community. Yet he could just as easily consider himself white, no? After all, he is half and half. Oh! Yes those wonderful racial laws of 1/16 that even Hitler thought too exaggerated.
A little inspirational music for this beautiful sunday:
