It is said about the American political system that the two major US parties are like two empty identical glass bottles with different labels on them. But the recent victory of President Barack Obama has proved that the whites are in a minority position now in the US political system.
In 2009, I compared the victory of President Obama with the slave revolution in Haiti. Haiti is the first country in the world where black-led revolt resulted in the formation of a republic. I used this idea in my article published in the Washington Times in 2009. President Obama in 2008 defeatedin the Democratic primaries and gained the party’s nomination for the presidential election. Clinton is white and a woman, but she was unable to get the nomination and instead was given the nomination although he was the first black to get the nomination. This important point was highlighted by me by using the song “What a girl needs, What a girl wants.”
President Obama defeated a pair of a white men and a white woman in the 2008 presidential elections. This victory was taken by me as a victory of all the blacks in the US. Blacks had to fight a long war in order to gain their rights in the US. The first blacks in the US were brought from Africa as slaves to work in US. But gradually, the blacks of America gained civil rights and they had to travel a long distance from their role as slaves in America to the role of a black man to serve as the president of US.
The defeat of a white male and a white female pair in the 2008 presidential elections at the hands of a black male was a groundbreaking landmark in the American history. Although blacks are a minority in the US and Barack Obama could not win the 2008 elections without the votes of the white population, still it was an indication that whites are no more able to rule singlehandedly in the US. It was also the result of the policies of Bush government and the people of US were willing to elect as their president anyone other than Republican nominee.
But the election in 2012 has proved once again that the whites in America are no more in a position to elect a white. In the 2012 presidential election Barack Obama defeated a pair of white males from the elite class. President Obama, despite being black, was able to win the 2012 presidential election with a clear margin over a pair of whites.
President Obama ruled America successfully in his first term and won the election for a second term. Although American whites were comparing him with the voodoo doctor dictator of Haiti during the Tea Party rallies (I wrote about it in my article published in 2009 in the Washington Times under the heading “Nation of Science”), Obama proved that he is highly educated person with no belief in superstitions and a moderately religious mindset.
Obama also successfully helped Muslims in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt in creating a revolution in these Muslim countries. Libyan people got rid of a dictator who was ruling over them for more than forty years. Similarly, Egyptian people were successful in getting rid of Hosni Mubarak, a dictator of many decades of ruling over Egypt. This was a gift from the president of the US to the people of these Muslim countries. As Obama was successful in creating history in the US by becoming the first black president and breaking the barriers of slavery for the black people in the US, he used his powers to bring the same level of revolutions for the people of the Arab Muslim countries by helping them to create an Arab Spring.
