Tupac & A 75-Year Old White Man

A couple of days ago I was having a conversation with a fellow, a not decided on Christianity type of guy, who said something that gave me a little grin and a stomach ache at the same time. I asked him: "Who do you think is going to win the election?" He replied: "Hopefully not him (he called him Obaka, purposefully saying his name wrong--as a slander)." He spoke again and this time his words were exactly (I mean exactly) the same as something Tupac said in a song about 10 or 15 years ago, he replied: "We ain't ready to see a black president." I grinned a bit because I knew this guy had never listed to Pac and it was odd that they said the same exact words. But the grin quickly wore off as my stomach turned to a pit--this guy was harboring prejudices that were totally uncalled for.
