Sheryl Crow: Yay For Obama, He’s Black and Conscious

Say what you will about Barack Obama.  His foreign policy (terrorist assassinations he watches on TV notwithstanding) is timid, his economy is weak, his gas prices are sky high.

Sheryl Crow, Way Back When War Was Not The Answer

But no matter what you say about Barack Obama, according to Sheryl Crow, he is black and he is conscious.  And being awake most times while having a darker complexion than many is something we can all be thankful for.

This is no joke.  Sheryl “Use One TP Square” Crow would normally not approve of killing mass murderers in their pajamas, but because our super-he-man macho Osama killing President is black and awake, she gives him a little more leeway.

The deadbeat dad Obama never knew may not have given him much (besides Dreams, of course), but he gave him dark skin an a Muslim name, and those are apparently the greatest gifts one can bestow.  Well, besides consciousness.  Maybe Obama Sr. passed on a little insomnia to boot.

By the way, isn’t judging people by different standards based on their skin color and ethnic background or heritage normally known as racism?

Doth speak the Old Crow:

“The first thing I thought was, I felt the same way everyone else did, mixed emotions about the fact that we killed someone. … We know that killing is not right. In this particular instance, we have such an association with this person for having dealt us such a heinous blow. So, you know, mixed emotions of finally justice has been served and, secondly, we’ve just killed somebody…”

[…]

“It’s just fascinating that we have a black man, who has Muslim ties with his father, even though he’s a Christian, it’s amazing how far our country has come, that that’s the man who took down Osama bin Laden. It makes you feel very patriotic.”

 

“I do think that if it were any other president, I might feel different about it. But, he’s one of the most conscious people I’ve ever met, and I’ve met four presidents now,” said Crow. “He walks the walk.”
