America Elected A Color Not A Leader

America Elected A Color Not A Leader

Obama fancies himself, amongst other things (none of which he is either), to be a hotshot basketball player. But true to his narcissistic, megalomanic personality he fails to realize that great athletes make their teammates better. I’m guessing even his wife could put on a pair of $600 sneakers that the taxpayers paid for and eventually make the equivalent of a jump shot. That doesn’t make her any more an athlete than his being able to dribble with one hand makes him a leader on the court.

Here’s my point. Phil Jackson is one of the greatest basketball coaches and team leaders in basketball history. When he took over as head coach of Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls he didn’t change the team; he molded the team into a cohesive unit that was able to collectively use the skills of the individuals to their maximum efficiency to win six world championships. He did the same thing with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Leaders understand their job is to lead, and to instill in their team, if you will, the desire to follow. Not by constraint or out of fear but out of a knowingness by the players that if they follow they will be better individually and they will be successful as a team.

Not only does Obama not lead but neither does he inspire people (especially young blacks) to be better. Under Obama people are not motivated to be better; they are motivated to follow the path of generational failure.

The myth that Obama inspires young blacks to be president is pure Pollyanna. If Obama inspired young blacks, it would be reflected in their test scores and by their social behavior. But instead we see increased illiteracy, increased unemployment, increased abortions, increased disregard for social propriety, increased gang violence, and increased flash mobs.

Something a successful leader understands very well is that division, especially racial discord, is the death knell to having a successful team. But Obama not only panders to racial discord, he also feeds on it.

Obama was elected the leader of the United States, but rather than lead he has fragmented; and he has fomented racial hostilities, racial partisanship, and racial demagoguery.

His minions have bludgeoned critics into silence with accusations of racism and bigotry directed at any and all who dare to disagree with his policies. Such racial demagoguery has served not only to blunt criticism by whites, but also it has encouraged a malevolent mindset amongst many blacks that says if Obama can disrespect whitey so can they. And thus we see the rise in flash mobs that specifically target white merchants and an increase in black belligerence directed at heretofore acceptable social norms.

Obama and his minions have preyed on the ignorance of those who foolishly applauded the election of a color juxtaposed to the election of a man capable of leading and uniting the country. And Obama has used that to silence critics and institute policies that no other man or woman could remotely hope to get away with.

Successful coaches, i.e., leaders, do not promote by color nor do they lead based on color. They unite, promote, and unify based on getting the best out of their team regardless of race and color. Phil Jackson and Jerry Krause didn’t add Dennis Rodman to the Chicago Bulls because he was black with tattoos — they added him because he brought a defensive dynamic to the team that made them even more formidable. And they set about making both him and the team know that his past with the Detroit Pistons was behind them. Their message was clear; for the Bulls to be successful in the present and in the future the entire franchise had to work together as one.

I submit that America’s mistake was electing a color in the guise of a would-be, hoped-for leader. Had America dismissed color and opted instead for a leader with proven ability to unite the people we would be better off today. But America elected a color who practices class warfare and the denunciation of those who are successful.

Imagine if Phil Jackson had publicly attacked Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen for being the best and highest paid on the team. Suppose Jackson had allowed Kobe Bryant’s antagonism of Shaquille O’Neal to continue when he became head coach of the Lakers.

Phil Jackson taught the Bulls that every player brought value to the whole regardless of the greatness of Jordan and Pippen. In Los Angeles, he made Kobe Bryant to know that he could not hope to be successful by undermining the value of the great Shaquille O’Neal. That is what true leaders do.

Obama is like water in a hot frying pan of oil. A lot of pop and sizzle but no value. Even a child knows you cannot cook in such a pan.

I’m tired of having a color as president. I want a leader. And I’m determined to continue doing everything in my power to combat the race mongering, racial partisanship, and the racial politics of the color pretending to be leader of America.

    Mr. Massie I have just discovered you and your unabashed opinions which you articulate so well. As a conservative, patriotic American in her 60’s I, and our babyboomer generation, have a clear perspective of what has happened to our wonderful country. You have put MY opinions out there for all to read! Looking over comments made by those who respond through electronic media…I did not see many positive comments made by people of color. What are you doing to encourage the minority community to educate themselves? Is it too late for them…and thus for America. Do you think there is anyone out there who can lead us back to common sense? As a nation we can survive only if we can eradicate the damage done by the uneducated voter, the “gimme more” voter, the brain dead voter whose precious vote is based on the “news” they get with a laugh from Jon Stewart ?
    I hate to leave this earth worrying that my grandchildren will have to live with the country that our current POTUS has sent on a downward spiral.

      Mr. Massie: I don;t know whether I should say that I like you because you are making statements that I agree with, or because you have put my thoughts in motion. For me, you are a great Patriot! I am active in the Tea Party in Rains County Texas and have tried to get some of our black citizens to participate in our meetings without success. I have been told that what I am trying to do is next to impossible since they, the black citizens, are still on the plantation, having given up one master for another (the government).
      We love you for what you are doing. Color should not enter into any decisions that are made for any reason. However, our government has continued to divide the country for political gain by being devisive. Keep up the good work.

      gayle lever: the bottom line is I know for fact that there are many conservative persons of color who comment on my blog…one might not be aware since we do not require persons to indicate their skin color and it should go without saying that not all persons of color are named shaneequa, tanisha, or jamal…my objective is to put speak the undiluted message not color code it…those who will hear will hear and receive…

    Mr. Massie, I've read quite a bit you've written but this is your best column to date. It's refreshingly honest and straight to the point. The left doesn't see it, but they typically self-blind themselves to the truth when it doesn't fit their agenda. They'll erect statues of Obama when he's left the White House. It's a case of worship rather than reality.

    Great article Mr. Massie. Obama and all the children like him, who are puppets of Satan, believe that life is one gigantic chalk board on which they can constantly draw and erase at whim. One day, God will gather them all together and put them in an eternal “time out” with everything they’ve ever wanted: 1. no more big bad guns 2. “collective-ism” to their hearts content 3. communal living en masse 4. and just for Obama, all the nice warm air he wants…(he’ll feel right at home, I’m sure) and wait for it…God will do all of this with…NO ASSAULT WEAPONS of any kind…just His Word! Boom, baby! LOL!!! We have the last laugh!

    Thank you, once again, for your clear and concise reasoning. I am afraid that the muddled, angry reasoning behind the votes that brought the current occupant of the Oval Office along with his politics of racism and Marxist philosophy, has set this country on a course of self destruction that may not be able to be corrected at the conclusion of this term.
    Isn’t that the ultimate “up yours and in your face” to America? And when the applause and cheering of his adoring fans dies down, will any of them have the desire to clean up the mess he leaves behind? I doubt it.

      pblee: his mess will be passed on to the next occupant…while after he leaves office obama will do interviews lying about how great it was when he was leader and telling everyone who will listen why the next president isn’t doing it right…if only we could direct lightening strikes…
