A Messenger, Not a Messiah

SOME white people are calling a mixed-race Black man and the first viable person of color candidate for president an elitist.


Not exactly. Just a way of calling the "uppity Negro" a Negro.

Truth-tellers are always labeled arrogant.


Probably because there's nothing humble about the truth.

It's perceived as coming from "on high" and it always kicks you in the gut.

Thus was born the phrase, "Don't shoot the messenger."

Quiet as it's kept, Obama is a messenger, not a messiah.
