Man’s Comment Compares Emanuel’s White Privilege to Barack Obama: Very Interesting

A reader on the Black Agenda Report said this about Rahm Emanuel as Mayor of Chicago, comparing him to President Barack Obama.  What do you think?

While I cannot predict exactly what Rahm will do in while he holds office, I can predict what he will NOT do. He will NOT appear in front of a Black audience and brag about how much he upset some members of the Jewish community by paying too much attention to "Black" interests. He will NOT repeat over and over and over again that he is not the "Jewish" or "White" mayor of Chicago. He will NOT make a grand show of avoiding being seen around or with Jewish people or with other White people. He will NOT stay away from Jewish organizations nor will he steer clear of venues which are obviously run by pro-Israel groups. When he appears at these venues, he will NOT go to the podium to offer trite, condescending criticisms of Jews, the state of Israel, or of White ethnics. He will NOT repudiate any Jewish or Israeli leader, institution. or organization, no matter how reprehensible or odious their statements or behavior may be. In fact he will NOT stage a single "Sistah Souljah moment" against anyone from any White ethnic group. He will NOT do any of these things NOR, as a White man in America, will he be expected to do so by anyone, Black, White, or Other. Welcome to Post-Racial America circa 2010. I for one, am so damn glad that we finally got equality…NOT!

  10. The man who made that statement was on point. His sarcasm in regards to what Obama is not doing as opposed to the Jewish Emanuel is well said.

    What we know about the Jewish Elite is that they have got their grips on humanity in such a way that is mesmerizing. Hell I wouldn’t be surprised if theirs was the powerful leadership that chose Obama and got everyone excited about him.

    Obama is good for nothing! Emanuel will serve those he is expected to serve also. He surely will not be serving the common man more than himslef.

    This has nothing to do with white privilege. It’s just the ravings of a vile anti-Semite.

    Rahm Emanuel is a flaming Zionist, serves big money, was in the Israeli armed forces serving a colonial-expansionist racist state nearly fifty years after racism and colonialism have become taboo and a violation of numerous international laws.
    So, tell me, how is it our president vetoed a UN Security Council Resolution that all other SecCouncil nations approved condemning Israels illegal colonial settlements in occupied Palestinian territories? Could it be because his chief of staff was working for Israelis and not Americans’ interests?

    I often wondered why President Obama selected Rahm Emanuel his chief of Staff. Was this a political move on his part?
