Jon Stewart’s Daily Show Is Right: We Want Obama to Be an Angry Black Man

Obama needs to be acting like this guy.

President Obama’s numbers keep falling and even left-wing commentators are frustrated with his inability to connect to people. Why is Obama the king of swaying an audience, having such trouble? Easy. People have already had their mandatory injection of hope. They are pissed off now. And they want a president who is pissed off as well—because pissed off people get stuff done and knock heads around.

The Daily Show had an excellent segment on this where one of their correspondents talked about the “Samuel L. Jackson Scale of Black Emotion” and how President Obama needs to show some anger, but not enough to play into racial stereotypes.

Watch the video below:

The point by Juan Williams really interested me. Are Obama and his advisors afraid of playing into the “angry black man” stereotype? If so, that’s really disappointing. For one, as the show points out, we want our leader to have a righteous anger right now. And second, as a viewer of Comedy Central, I’ve been exposed to my fair share of racial stereotypes. This isn’t one I’ve heard mentioned at all. And even if it was, I think Obama’s election proves that America as overall moved beyond racism and aren’t going to react negatively to the idea that an African-American is angry over a poor economy, an oil spill that drags on and on, and the boldness of the enemies of the free world.

America wants Obama to be angry. Those saying he needs to remain cool and calm don’t understand what America wants right now.
