Youth Media Blog-A-Thon: Discovering my inner-racist through the 2008 presidential election, or the Ignorant Man’s Voting Guide

By Zoneil Maharajcolumns
Feb 20, 2008 - 12:44 AM


Youth Outlook and Wiretap are kicking off the first ever Youth Media Blog-A-Thon. This month’s topic is the 2008 presidential election. Oh Dang! editor-in-chief Zoneil Maharaj speaks on race, and not so eloquently at that.


This year is the first year I voted. I made it a point to vote during the presidential primaries because, for the first time ever, someone who isn’t an old white guy has the potential to become president. It was a tough choice. Clinton and Obama are both strong candidates and there are things I like and dislike about both. Sure, Clinton’s got the White House experience that Obama lacks, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Obama’s promise of change for a new American era is hopeful, but I’m skeptical whether it’s all just lip service.

Torn and uncertain whom to vote for, I should have walked away. But I needed to play my part in the election, so I went with Obama. The deciding factor, simply and truthfully, his race.

When my friend, a Filipino American from the supposedly liberal San Francisco, found out that I voted for Obama, he laughed and later sent me a MySpace comment that read: “I knew you were a nigger lover.” I'd like to think he was joking, but in previous conversations he expressed that he wouldn’t want to see a black man as president of our country.

Race vs. Gender is the name of the game in this presidential race. I hope most people looked beyond race and gender and voted solely on candidates' values, but we all know that didn't happen. Whether we like to admit it or not, we take our personal biases and experiences to the polls with us.

I’m neither black nor white. But during discussions about the presidential race, I couldn’t help but turn to race as an argument. I’m told this is ignorant, especially for someone with a B.A. in journalism who should know better. But is it really that ignorant? Don’t we all favor those we can relate to?

The way I look at it, as a lower middle-class immigrant who grew up in America and withstood racism and discrimination, I’ll have more in common with Obama than Clinton or McCain. Neither Clinton nor McCain can know what it’s like to be a minority in America. Obama does. I remain hopeful that his life experiences will help shape his policies with more empathy than other candidates. And I think many first time voters and those previously apathetic toward politics, will use similar logic. I don’t know whether that’s good or bad.

This is the first time I’ve seen folks so involved and attentive to the presidential election. It’s like Super Bowl Sunday everyday till November with folks placing bets on who will take the trophy to the Oval Office. Four years ago, as an apathetic 20-year-old, all you’d get from me was a “Fuck Bush. Fuck politics. My vote don’t mean shit anyway. Now pass me the Playstation controller.”

This year, however, there’s a candidate it seems I can relate to, though much of that relation is assumed through race. If that makes me ignorant or racist, so be it.

While a woman isn't a minority per say, one could surely say that women have experienced institutionalized sexism and plain bullshit sexism. Sexism isn't racism, but they are both about power. White privilege and patriarchy have given the benefactors of those ideas enormous amounts of power. I guess what I am saying the gender part is important too and that Clinton must have endured much discrimination as a woman. In some sense, she can relate to being dominated. After filling in the bubble for Obama in the primary, I'm thinking about Cynthia McKinney in November.

As a black female, this election has put me in an interesting predicament. Do I choose race or gender? I ended up voting for Obama, mainly because I can't stand that Clinton broad. When I think about it, she doesn't have much more experience than Obama. Sleeping with Bill (or in her case not sleeping with Bill) doesn't count as experience. In my opinion she represents the status quo. We’ve already had eight years of Clinton. Plus all of her whining earlier in her campaign about the male candidates picking on her really got on my nerves. What is she gonna do when Osama starts talking smack? Cry? Grow a pair lady and suck it up! Refreshingly Obama hasn’t made his race an issue for this campaign, which I admire. I do find it interesting that although many blacks have joked that Bill was the first black president, his ghetto pass has been quickly revoked with the prospect of actually having a black president.

I think it's interesting that you identify as an immigrant but that you don't really say anything about your specific identity and if that influenced your decision. Maybe it didn't. As a hip hop blogger, is Obama the hip hop president?

This is the first year, I too, have decided to become politically active. I registered solely to vote in the primaries, and attempted to get friends and classmates to do the same. Obama or Clinton aside, I think the reason why this election is special (and why so many are getting involved) is because both Democrats are standing on a platform of political change. If a Democrat moves to Washington, a lot will change for the better, hands down. After the 2004 election, I also thought voting was pretty much a joke. I hated Bush and couldn't possibly believe Americans would vote for him again. But I also thought Kerry was a complete tool, so a vote either way seemed pointless. But this time around I feel like it's important, and that we will look back on 08' as a year the political climate turned. Addressing the race issue, I voted for Obama (at least I'd like to think) without really considering his race. He is a commanding public speaker and seems to be the one think that I believe a president must be: An INTELLECTUAL. The man just seems a lot smarter about social issues than Clinton. Also, it's shady that four people from two different families could potentially run the country for thirty years... Sure Obama is capitalizing on the fact that he is half black, but Hilary is riding the female train all the way to the poles also. Us folks that lean to the left should just be happy some things will change. November can't come soon enough. Bush 08! Put an end to term limits... :)

I don't think my being an Indo-Fijian immigrant had any more weight in my voting for Obama than if I were from another ethnic group, even though some South Asians are rallying around Obama. I think that anyone who had to struggle with issues of racial identity and acceptance within mainstream (see: white) America might relate to Obama more so than other candidates. He's lived in our shoes, observed life through our eyes. This might allow him to serve minorities and underprivileged Americans better. As far as the hip hop community goes, he's definitely got folks worked up. Kidz In the Hall made a track for his campaign. He's got support from Ludacris and Kanye, though Fiddy and Lupe are going for Hillary (google it). Hillary vs. Obama could be the biggest hip hop beef since Bad Boy vs. Deathrow. The fact that sites such as HipHopDX.com are giving extensive coverage to the election is testament to this election's popularity. The hip hop community's always been vocal on political and social issues. I think Obama represents the change that folks like Public Enemy have been rapping about since the late 80s. I'm just worried that those who aren't up on their politics will cast uneducated votes based on who their favorite rapper supports. Same goes for (post-) Hollywood endorsements, though I doubt Chuck Norris' ads helped Huckabee much.

Now, don't get me wrong, I think youth votes are essential. The youth of the US have THE vote, the power in numbers. And, while I ernestly believe that youth will make the big difference in the 2008 election, I afraid that too many are voting with a narrow basis. I'm a senior in high school and will be a first time voter. While I couldn't legally vote for the primaries, I found myself captivated by the tug-of-war between Hilary and Barack and the characters on the right wing. And, I guess I could say the same regarding my classmates/future votees..but that would make me a liar. The vast majority of the voters I checked the box for their candidate because: a) "Hilary is scary" b) "Hilary is an ultra-conservative" c) "Barack is more open to change" or my personal favorite: d) "Barack is a hottie!!!" I recently wrote an op-ed article for my school paper noting the "Obamenon" that seems to be sweeping youth voters; the cult-like bandwagons; the platform based mostly on hope; the chanting; and following for the sake of following. Perhaps what bothers me about Barack's campaign is that he is seen so much as the good guy because Hilary is portrayed to be so bad. She is the nutcracker, the mad woman; he is a saint with excellent stage lighting. Evidence? Google images: try Barack Obama and then Hilary Clinton.
