I WANT AN ELITIST WHO SPENT 3 YEARS ON THE MEAN STREETS OF CHICAGO AS A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER AND THEN WENT TO HARVARD LAW SCHOOL FROM WHICH HE GRADUATED MAGNA CUM LAUDE.

I want someone who can find common ground with assholoes like Jeremiah Wright and assholes like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad .

I want an elitist who the rest of the world will respect because he opposed the Iraq fiasco.

  1. What exactly does a “community organizer” do anyways?

  2. Barack Obama was at Altgeld Gardens from 1985 to 1988. It was where he first became a community organizer

    Altgeld Gardens was a place without gardens, a low-rise housing estate that stands near the southern edge of Chicago, on the banks of the Calumet river. When it was built in the 1940s for black soldiers returning from the war, there was plenty of work in the nearby steel mills. But by the time Obama got there 40 years later the steel mills were all closed. There were street gangs and most lived in poverty. It was solidly black.

    Across the street was a huge sewage plant. The parallel was not lost on Obama.
    When he got there Obama noticed that blacks talked quite a bit about what was wrong. They even had some good-sounding ideas, like black nationalism and self-esteem. But he also saw that an idea meant nothing unless it was backed by large numbers of people working together to put it into action.

    So Obama’s challenge was to get poor blacks together in large enough numbers behind an issue that the city would have to do something. The grass roots thing.

    The man who brought him to Chicago was white. He saw poor blacks as poor but not as black. Maybe that was good in a way, but Obama saw that the people in Altgeld were not just fighting against poverty, they were also fighting the poison that whites had filled their minds with that made them hate their own blackness.

    Whites blamed blacks for their own poverty. Blacks knew what a self-serving lie that was, but a part of them believed it: that when things went wrong it was because they were black, that deep down they were no good, just like white people said.

    Obama was able to get work for some and got the city to remove asbestos from Altgeld. It changed him. It showed what he could do. But it also showed him that he needed to rise in the power machine to to make the changes that would truly help Altgeld. So in 1988 he left to get his law degree at Harvard LAW SCHOOL.
