I am the most despised man on planet earth. I am looked down upon by many, including my own woman. I am laughed at, joked about, and others only come to me as a last resort. I was forced from my homeland and brought to the New World. Since my arrival, I have had to constantly prove myself to others, and no matter what I did or accomplished, it was never enough. I was told that I was not smart enough to do this and smart enough to do that, and through it all, I have been able to overcome all the road blocks and obstacles that have come my way. I was told that I was not intelligent enough to became a doctor or lawyer, but I succeeded in that. I was told that I was not smart enough to be a professional quarterback or become a head coach, but I accomplished that, and have even won a few Super-bowls. I have helped to built America, not only through the sweat and pain of slavery, but also through my great inventions such as the traffic light, lawnmower, clothes dryer, elevator, clock, fountain pen, street sweeper, horseshoe, riding saddle, and the list could go on. All other ethnic and minority groups look down upon me, even those who have come across the waters from the continent from which I originated. My woman has ambivalent feelings towards me, parts of her loves me and parts of her hates me. I am the only man in America, in which my woman publicly denounces me and spreads her evil poison about me, among other ethnic and minority groups. I live in a political system which regularly gives her a job over me, in order to try to degrade me. If I become highly educated, those within my own group, claim that I am too white, while the oppressor, still sees me as being too black. I am the man who has gone through slavery, racism, segregation, unemployment, poverty, imprisonment, and injustice. However, through it all , the Almighty God, has blessed me to move from the slaveship to the White House. Who am I? I am the black man.
