This week, Obama said he'd attack al Qaeda groups in Pakistan if president, and if it came to that. Some presidential candidates would agree. So this news shouldn't startle me. But it does, and I'm sure it's because of Obama's color. I still can't come to terms with Obama's Blackness that I'd hoped would mean his undue progressiveness, and his need to fulfill a certain imperialism seemingly inherent in taking the job after Bush. More so, I'm afraid that if elected, Obama will want to prove his race is not a deterrent to being a big boy who can rough it out like some other, white leaders.
