By Michael D. Shear

President Obama has chosen Regina Benjamin, a family physician from Alabama, to be the next Surgeon General, filling a key public health post ahead of an expected surge in the H1N1 flu next fall.

Benjamin gained fame through her public efforts to rebuild her rural health clinic after Hurricane Katrina devastated it. She founded the Bayou La Batre Rural Health Clinic in 1990 and rebuilt it after the hurricane.

Benjamin has also served as the first black woman to head the State of Alabama Medical Association and was associate dean for rural health at the University of South Alabama's College of Medicine.

Obama announced her his intent to nominate her at a Rose Garden event this morning in which he also spoke of the challenges and need for health care reform.

Nothing say healthy like a 300 lb Black woman with a long history of family illness. It's going to be difficult to tout the virtues of losing weight when your spokesman is a Whale.
At least she is a strong proponent of abortion in the Black Community.
Is her life really a "Life worth living"

here's the dilemma of the black in America. This woman represents the negro, however she's kind, she' dedicated, she's a real human being but she's still a negro, a supporter of white supremacy. For Black parity, how do you address this paradox?

Simple. You pat them on head, declare their "equality", and send them back to wait on their government handouts.
What you don't do is take away their preferred status and quotas thus causing huge unemployment, say you're going to give them more and really give them much less, get the entire country to rise against their every goal and agenda......whoops. Too late.

I just want to see how a 300 lb Black woman from Alabama is going to explain to people that have worked all their lives that the government, under the guidelines of the "New Healthcare", has decided that their "lives aren't worth living", and aren't worth spending money to save them.
That should go over like a turd in the punchbowl.

are u trying to be funny? this is just plain stupid shty, seriously..why did you even take the time to write it? if you are the quality of white on the African American forum, and over the year, I believe most of it to be true, with one or two exceptions, then American is in deep do-do, and the "master race" had better take stock of itself.

Bush was handed an America rebuilt from the ashes of his father's disastrous reign, eight years of Clinton's success, even with a Republican Congress.

Obama was handed an indebted, broke, plummeting America still involved in a winless $3 Trillion war, handed to him by the dry-drunk fake-Christian appease-the-crazies President who trashed this country for eight years.

Once again, a Democrat has to clean up the GOP mess, and it's an ugly, expensive business the Republicans did have the guts to face.

Why pick a grotesquely overweight woman to be surgeon general ? Shouldn't she be setting an example for all the other food stamp fatties ?

Actually, everything I said is extremely accurate.
Over the past 40 years, Blacks have been buttressed with unsubstantiated claims of progress (govrenment mandated quotas to resemble "equality"), told what an important part of society you are (pat on the head) and sent back to swelter and grimace in the throes of government aid.
Thanks to Obama, Affirmative Action has begun to crumble (You think the Supreme Court could have passed that without a Black President? Cries of racism and Bush interference would have been deafening), Blacks are bearing the most heinous brunt of unemployment/underemployment thanks to Obama's errant fiscal policies and dangerously irresponsible policies (Yes, Mexicans are coming to take your place, Obama supports it). The parasite sect of society is finely starting to feel the pinch of declining revenues (Promise more and give less), and the Mainstream Society perspective is turning against Blacks, finally beginning to acknowlege what an endless drag you are on society, both financially and socially.(more openly don't like you every day)
We couldn't have done this without Obama. He was the Catalyst of Change we needed.
As far as the role of the Surgeon General under the New Healthcare Plan, you may want to start paying attention to the subtext given by Ezekiel Emmanuel (Rahm's brother), the architect of this madness. The fact that you don't seem to understand the specifics just means that you are running with the pack...again, on this one. With 55 million baby boomers, who have money and have worked all their lives for what they have, heading into their Golden years, you can bet the "Life Worth Living" mantra, so that the parasite sect can get free oxycontin so they can get their "buzz" on, of the new deal will not go quitely into the night.
Educate yourself...or don't, it really doesn't matter.

Prison is now "governmment" aid...

What is the quota for blacks in prison?

You white losers only see the negro and attibute their limited success to all blacks. You are such losers you can't stand any one with the skin tone of your former slaves making any real economic progress in the white run colony.

If you speak of justice, you should be happy for the negro, but it ain't in your hate filled ignorant white self..

as far as education. the only way a white man can lie to me and my believe it is for me to think like him..no thanks, i'll pass on YOUR education..

What is the quota for Blacks in prison? Apparently 1 criminal= 1 prisoner?
But due to the fiscal bearings of your out of control criminality, it appears that less Black criminals are going to prison now, so the question for you is how does the Black community reconcile the overflow of old criminals mixing with the newer caste of criminals? The answer? Hispanic induced genocide. Whites will watch it on CNN.

How can "success" be gauged when you never had to earn it? How can you call it "progress" when you never had to do anything except wait on government mandate to assign you your position of "success"? The Welfare State destroyed any chance of you ever being productive.

What makes you believe that Whites have any interest in you assimilating into society anymore? You had 40 years of grossly overfunded measures to attempt to accomplish that, and you failed miserably. Your time is up. The fact that you stood up from your corner where you were regarded as the protected, slightly retarded, violent malcontents and thrust yourself into the spotlight only expedites your Demise.
Look around, no one has sympathy for you anymore. Sympathy and the compassion of others is all you've ever had.
We no longer want you to be us. We want you to be a distant and very unsavory footnote in our history. I'm amazed you're still here.
