奧巴馬美國夢的衝擊波

雖然我對奧巴馬這傢伙的工作能力很有疑問,不過奧巴馬贏了,無疑代表了美國夢的實現。全球最強國家的總統,由人民一人一票推選出一位非洲裔黑人來做。在美國,Nothing is impossible,這是美國夢的精髓。

不過奧巴馬當選這個美國夢的真正意義在於,美國人都可以在政治上摒棄種族主義,讓少數族裔當元首,那其他國家又如何?

就以奧巴馬最有淵源的幾個國家之一,印尼和馬來西亞(奧巴馬妹夫是華裔馬來西亞人),奧巴馬都可以當總統,那由印度裔人當馬來西亞首相,或者華裔當印尼總統,又可不可以呢?這兩個國家慶祝奧巴馬當選時,可能這問題令他們的種族政治一夜瓦解。

又以歐盟國家為例,除了法國(法國是文化民族主義國家,只要你講法文,你乜膚色都無人理你,薩爾科齊是匈牙利人,拿破崙是意大利人後代,無所謂),其餘國家都是民族主義國家,若果英國出現一位印度裔或華裔首相,又誰曰不宜?當有了美國這個先例,其他國家的種族主義路查實很難走下去。

最後中國了,現在美國人可以選個黑人當總統,那中國何時能推達賴喇嘛為國家元首?文明的分別,就在這裡。美國的憲政設計好膠,但美國人敢試的態度,令一個個夢想成為可能,這就是美國的偉大。

  1. I agree with much of the post, and thought there are a few additional points. Black Americans in general have been at the bottom of socio-economic status, and top in crimes, births outside marriages, and other unsavoury statistics. People of the Left and most black Americans in general have blamed society – particularly the racism of the current white Americans they encounter, the racism of American institutions, whether government at all levels or private enterprises, and the inmate disadvantage born from the history of slaves and/or segregation. In other words, the plight of blacks are ‘the debt of the US government of failure to integrate blacks to American society after the post-US civil war reconstruction period (1865-1877)’. To put it in a vulgar way, these are considered the “Jer owing amount” (J數) in HKgolden terms owed by the US government and the nation in general towards the black Americans.

    Of course the conservatives (and a few blacks like Larry Elder and Bill Crosby) counter that the demons are most blacks own making and the blacks themselves are their own worst enemies these days. They sink to the bottom ‘because they refuse to work and expect other people to help them look after themselves’.

    I think this election has shown racism to have been firmly a thing of the past because for most conservatives like us, we don’t like Obama not because he is African American, but rather he is a true blue leftist. And I believe for the African Americans who believe the US owes them “J數”: the election of Obama means the USA as a nation has made all outstanding residual payments concerning the “J數” owed to the blacks whatsoever. If the US lands in geopolitical troubles due to Obama’s utopian pacifism or the blacks still keep on languishing from this point onwards, there will be no more excuse this time of the type “the blowback of historical “J數” stretching from the 19th century”, or “the whole world is still discriminating against us”. They can only blame themselves in such case.
