He loves to see you smile. He doesn't like short people. And now, he's dreaming of a white president.
All in jest, of course. Longtime songster Randy Newman, famous for his contribution to the Toy Story film franchise, has released the satirical "I'm Dreaming" in support of President Obama's re-election. Supposedly fantasizing about the dream of a white president, the song only half-jokes with its goal of highlighting racism in the US, a problem Newman describes as "the great issue of this country."
Written for an upcoming album, Newman decided to release the track early to coincide with the presidential election. Regarding the implicit target of the song's lyrics – which sarcastically include "I'm dreaming of a white president, just like the ones we've always had" – Newman has referred to Republican Mitt Romney as a man not fit for the, er, White House.
Watch the video for "I'm Dreaming" below:
Any one who believes that the groups who say Obama lies about his religion and citizenship is any thing but attacks because of his race is living in an alternate reality. I think this is a cool attack on them.
That's not racist at all LOL. I am so sick of this BS. He along with Obama can shove their race card up their arses. Obama is the racist and he discriminates against over weight people and CHRISTIANS. How pathetic. This country deserves what they get if they re-elect garbage like that.
Wonder what all the 'color visioned people' will say or feel when they stand before Jesus Christ and realize that HE isnt caucasion?? ALL people need to close their eyes to color and look at the person within....
Another ignorant celebrity that still beleives in the hope and change promised, but never delivered four years ago. So if racism against minorities is such a problem these days, then why did we elect a black president? Afterall, racism is the biggest problem in this country, so naturally we would still be electing white people as president. Rather than listening to this stupid old man, why don't you look at this past adminastration and see what we actually got from this guy! This country does have a problem with racism, but it is not against the minorities, it is against the white majorities, and other white guy are taking part in it! NOBAMA 2012, NOBAMA 2016, NOBAMA 2020, NOBAMA EVER AGAIN!!!
This is ridiculous. 47% of the country voted against Obama meaning it 'could' exist for nearly half the country (not saying it does, but it could). That doesn't mean the problem doesn't exist or as you claim, only exists for whites, which is an extremely racist statement. It's obvious that it's still a problem just by your post.
So 47% of voting Americans are racist for not voting Barrack Obama? Could it be that they perhaps they favored the other canditates plan? No, of course not. Racism is the answer. I thought America proved it wasn't racist four years ago; I see it wishes to follow the mentality of ''prove I'm not a racist'' by once again performing the acts of 2008.
I don't care what color of president has long as his or she does not propagand war for profit by George W bush did he should be arrested for war crimes he had 7 warnings about America being attacked on 911 and did nothing and will be for something that happen so we would go to war in the 3000 people be crucified and more to fight the war.
