Dont fool urself, Americans arent ready for Rais M-matumbi mwenye arabic middle name Hussein na Baba Mkenya. Hata huyo mvaa sketi nae msindikizaji tu....
Dont get me wrong I would love Obama to win not because he is african/american rather bcoz he is smartest and capable candidate. But its very unfortunate the afore-mentioned things will prove to b difficult to overcome.
90% of yesterdays caucus voters in IOWA were whites
Kwa hiyo wale washikaji wa Iowa wewe unawaona hamnazo, au sio Americans wale! I know the road is still tough and rough, but the guy is travelling it and every day he seems to gain new strength and vigour.
Nevertheless,I think, GT is not asking us to comment whether Obama will win or not, he is asking JF members to reflect on Obama's ideas and see if we can borrow an idea or two that can emancipate us from the lies and traps of politicians in our countries. And I trust that there is plenty that Obama is teaching us.
What's wrong with having an Arabic name or being called Hussein, isnt it exactly the same like being called William, Hillary, Kenneth, John, Maganga or George? it is just a name. I find it a bit disturbing especially for an African and a Tanzanian to put or have such comments, or thoughts.
When the Greatest, Muhammad Ali, changed his name and converted to Islam some people had the same thought, but it never affected him in any way or form. To white americans he was the same black person or N***r full stop! so the name change or his new religion was not going to change the way they were thinking about him. To make matter worse he joined the likes of Malcom X (Civil right campaigners) openly. The good thing about him was he believed in himself and what he was capable of doing, and surely didn't he amaze us all??
On Mr Barack Hussein Obama it is exactly the same, he believe in himself and some people most of them white could see the potential in him, and they are not going to give a damn whether his name is HUSSEIN, or OSAMA ,as some politicians started calling him, or wheter he is a Kenyan, blue or pink.
For me he is a winner, and has got a really potential and that is all what matters most, I just hope most Americans will see him that way too, as they have started showing us in Iowa.
..kwa waliosikiliza hotuba yake ya shukrani baada ya ushindi na kuona wafuasi wake wakimshangilia,wataelewa kuwa america needs change and is going to vote for it!
..tupo tulio na shaka kwamba wenye kushika mambo huko kwa watemi wa dunia wanaweza mhujumu!ila america is craving for change and is more united now than before!
..simply,jamaa ame-transcend color!
Na katika kuweka mambo saw ani kuwa BWANA masatu huyu jama anaitwa KEITH ELISON ni Musilam tena siyo NOI ni orthodox Muslim na alishinda uchaguzi na sasa hivi ni Congressman. The man is not MWARABU or anything else but rather ni AFRICAN AMERICAN na aliapishwa kwa kutumia QUR'AN
Love them or hate them lakini sometimes Americans can always show us the way in certain things
msaada zaidi ingia hapa:
Nikiwa kama Mkazi wa Illinois na pia mwana wa Afrika Mashariki nampa hongera sana Senator Barack Obama kwa kushinda kule Iowa. Ile hotuba ya jana usiku ilikuwa superb yaani imekamilika kila idara. Kwa wale ambao hawakuiona hiyo hotuba hebu click hapo Obama Speech
Yamekuwa haya tena?
hapo naungana nawe katika kumpongeza huyu mwenzetu.
Pamoja na kumpongeza lakini bado wako Wamarekani wengi weupe Republicans and Democrats mbao wanasema 'America is not ready for a black president or a woman president' pamoja na kuwa watasherehekea miaka 232 ya uhuru wao hapo July 4, 2008.
Huo ndio ukweli. Itakuwa ni maajabu ya hali ya juu kama mgombea wa Democrats akiwa Obama halafu apite katika uchaguzi hapo Nov, 2008.
Mkuu GT Heshima mbele,Huyu Jamaa Keith nafahamiana nae,Nami kila siku namfananisha na Bwana Obama,na kama ajabu wana urafiki Mkubwa na huyo Obama,Wamefanana kwa mengi labda pengine kwa sababu wote ni Lawyers na watu wa Human Rights.Huyu Jamaa ameweza kuingia kwenye Congress kwa kupitia Mji wa Minneapolis (Wazungu wengi)na pia ni Red State,na hivi sasa amekuwa muhimu huko,kwa sababu ndio kiungo kati ya Wamarekani na Waarabu,anadai kila siku kwamba siasa za Wamarekani dhidi ya Waarabu ndio zinazochafua Amani duniani,kwa kipindi kifupi alichokuwa kwenye Congress keshafanya Ziara kwenye Nchi 14 za kiarabu ili kuleta Nuru Mpya ya Wamarekani iliyoharibika huko Kwa Waarabu.
Pia ni mmoja wa Congressman anayejua mengi kuhusu Tanzania,Ni mmoja kati ya wamarekani wachache walioona documents za Ufisadi wa BOT,Ili kujifunza mengi kutoka kwakemnaweza kuwasiliana nae,ni social na mtu mpenda kujifunza.Wale Ndugu zangu mliopo Minneapolis/St.Paul Tafuteni muda wa kuonana na huyu Jamaa anapatikana kirahisi ukiweka appointment.Ukipata wasaa wa kuzungumza nae utajifunza mengi..
Ni kweli kuna safari ndefu na ngumu mpaka ashinde Urais wa Marekani lakini matunda yaliyoonekana kule Iowa jana ni moja ya statement nzuri to the rest of the United States of America kuwa Black Person/Minority electability is possible amongst constituents with majority white voters.
Well 90% of IOWANS had different views last night
But they are not the only one who will be able to participate in this coming election.
I am very impressed na hili.Sasa zile documents za BOT zingemfikia Jendayi Freizer lakini dont expect alot from her...looks like she was under JK's spell kama Condi
hivi unajua kam Keith Elison kakubalika mpaka na Mayahudi? vile vile tusisahu kam Minesota ni Homebase ya WASOMALI ...
I suggest you watch SEASON 6 of the WEST WING and then you tell me what you think about President Santos taking over from Butler
Nathani GT na Choveki mmeshindwa kumuelewa Masatu.
Back to the topic...Obama has done great to say the least. Sina matumaini wala uhakika sana kuwa atashinda New Hamp na States nyingine mpaka asimamishwe rasmi na Democrats for Nov election. Ila kwa hapo alipofikia anastahili pongezi sana, amefungua macho Weusi wengi USA na duniani kwa namna moja au nyingine. Laiti kama weusi wa UK nao wangekuwa wamepiga hatua kiasi hiki..
Akifanikiwa kusimamishwa rasmi na Democrats nitakuwa na furaha sana kuweza kupata nafasi ya kushuhudia historia ikiwekwa kwenye nafasi ya Uraisi USA....
Out of topic...kwa UK natabiri kuwa mtu mweusi ambaye atakuja kufikia au kukaribia mafanikio ya Obama...90% atakuwa na damu ya ki-Nigeria au Ghana...!!
Naaaa!! I don't have time for that program.
Every journey starts with a zero mile, ni kuwa kama kuna mtu kaanza safari basi ni kuwa Obama kaanza vizuri hata kama akishindwa atakuwa kwenye record kuwa alianza vizuri.
