NOVEMBER 4TH: HOW YOU GONNA ACT?


I've been thinking about this, and even spoke to my wife about this recently. I'm trying to figure out just what I'm gonna do should Barack Obama's presidency be announced. Running through my head are a host of crazy ideas. I wish I could be in Chicago at Grant Park when it all goes down as its the official site of Obama's campaign party. But I can't fuck with the cold weather like that. I love you Barack, but RiPPa has moved to the south for some years now and ain't seen snow in a minute.

I don't know of any election night watch parties here in Memphis, but even if I was aware of any, I doubt I'd wanna be around a crowd of strangers. That being said, I think I'll just be sitting at home with my wife and kids. One thing I know for sure, is that I am gonna cry. Yes, I am gonna cry the moment that his election has been validated. I'm an emotional type of guy, but even if I were a cold hearted bastard, I'm sure I would still cry given the historic circumstances of his victory. So I know I'm gonna cry without a doubt, but outside of that, what am I gonna do? You see, I'm the guy who wanted to run around my house 10 times yelling happy new year when 1999 came to a close. Nothing crazy about that except that it was cold and I was supposed to wear nothing but my draws. I never pulled it off, but I did go to a club, and made sure that I was in the streets running around in a drunken stupor.

I feel the need to do something, but I don't know just what. I'm tempted to go outside and yell OBAMA at the top of my lungs. But I don't want my neighbors to call the cops on me. It would be kinda messed up celebrating the election of the first black president sitting in jail. But then again, I went to jail on Christmas night before. Long story, don't ask. But I wanna be at a place or a room full of people like me who have waited for this moment to come all of our lives. A place where we could all cry our hearts out especially for the fallen who were not as fortunate as us to see this historic moment. A place where I won't be accused of punching a white girl in the face and carving a backwards "B" on her face.

To me, that would be the way to celebrate it, but I'd be damned if imma have a bunch of people at my house. Lord knows when you do shit like that, somebody always breaks your toilet, and I can't have that. The last thing I need is for a house full of jubilant Obama supporters like myself having to take turns running up the street to the gas station to take dumps. Should Obama win, I'm pretty sure the cops are gonna be on alert, and pulling negroes over left and right, and I'd hate to have to get a ticket for speeding because I had to take a dump. I still can't think of just what exactly I'm gonna do that night, but like I said before, I know I'm gonna cry, and maybe thats all that needs to be done should he win.

Now if he loses?

Thats a whole other story, but I think I'm gonna make sure I grab a flat screen TV. Either that or a case of beer or two like cats did down in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. I dunno about you, but sitting back drinking a case opf beer or two, and watching people tear shit up in protest sure sounds like fun. What can I say, chaos breeds opportunity. I hope it doesn't happen, but should it happen, I think it would be necessary. Hell, it would be the least we should do after having a third election stolen from us the people.

What do you think will happen on Nov. 4th?

Obama supporter or not, how will you react to the news?

I'm open to all predictions....

I have already said that when he wins I am going to walk around campus and everywhere else I go in Memphis doing the George Jefferson walk lol...

if he loses, and I pray he doesn't I will be too depressed to walk period..I may go on hiatus :(

I really don't think I would want to be at a watch party or any public place with a crowd gathered when the announcement does come though, I don't think that would be a good idea.

I'm having a private party at the crib. I'm filming it so I can save the memory and like you, I will probably be crying. I also thought of the idea of having small notebooks for my guests so they can write down exactly how they feel when he officially wins. It would be something that's good to share when or if you have kids. Not to mention celebrating with some champagne.

If he loses, I think I will be clinically depressed and may not ever vote again - I'd be done with politics. Okay, maybe not, but I'll probably never be as enthusiastic as I am this year and that's sad.

I am going to do the black lady church dance and give God some honor if he wins. I never thought this would happen during my life time.

If he does not win, I will begin to pray for the nation because we are going to need it.

I am planning a brunch on the day when he is sworn into office. I do not want to miss one moment of that event.

Well, I'll be in Missouri with the Young Lawyers for Obama when the news breaks. If he wins, I'm like you I'm gonna cry PROFUSELY! I'll probably drop to my knees and thank the Lord for this moment (though it may be the ultimate insult that so many would be praising Obama more than Him). Now if he loses.... to hard for me to fathom. I won't take it well at all. I imagine the car ride back from MO would be quiet, that's for sure.

I really wanted to leave a 'serious' comment, but by the time I finished reading I was still laughing at the fact of YO ASS getting pulled over for speeding and having to take a dump!!! ctfu!!!

But anyway...I know I'm going to be a crying soul! I've caught myself trying to fight tears back from just listening to him speak during a radio interview while I'm driving. It's not even so much about 'what' he's saying, but the FACT that it's HIM saying it. When they announce his presidency, I just want to be at home so that I can get down on my knees and THANK GOD! It's not by any means going to change how people think about black people or vice versa, but to know that my son - an african american male - will see a black man [finally] as president, is TRULY a blessing!!

I'm gonna get on my kids nerves with all my yelling and singing when he wins.

If the election is stolen and he 'loses', Ima gonna wait for the next show to begin - Barack suing for a recount. He ain't no Al Gore and I think he'll put up a damn good fight and win.

And on Inauguration Day, I'M GONNA BE THERE!!!

I'll save you an honorary seat at the celebration! Chicago's weather is SO unpredictable that it might be 65 on Election night. So, get yourself on expedia and look for a deal. :)

You can stay with me...until I go home and then yo azz is homeless! [I know you didn't think I meant "stay at my house" did you? *corny grin*]
