Oh naw, you made a very profound point...

Your point being that, you already were against the man before he even served a day as your President.

Says volumes about where you are coming from in this dicussion... So were not gonna continue this dicussion any further... Me and you I mean. Lets keep it to Giants football.

Peace


the shirt was a joke man, i didnt vote for the guy but im hoping he does well.


"my president is black" was on all sorts of tshirts around here, "my president is wack" was funny to me.


youre trying to read to deep into it.


and no i didnt vote for mccain either.

exactly i asked people in this thread name someone else deserving to win and they couldnt and the one person who did never even gave a reason why

i dont think that just because someone cant name someone better that it means we should just give it to obama.


s**t the year ghandi died, after having never got the prize, they didnt award it to anyone because they thought the field was too weak.



so that argument doesnt really work.

obama is NOT willing to singlehandedly take credit for this... he is a very important person and has participated/initiated alot of meetings with world leaders, but he is humbled to win the award... im sure alot of people said that when they won this award...


like someone said before, obama has put alot of work in... met with alot of world leaders... he has not started beef with other countries or adopted a tyrant attitude.. like our previous president..

im sure all the haters see obama do is talk on the lawn, talk about heath care or go on vacations/dinners with his family..

OBAMA PUTS IN THE WORK...he deserves this award, but i wish it were handed out to him 2 years from now, b/c haters are gonna raise the bar so high on his a.ss now, that any mistake he makes now is gonna be 100x as big....

is like drake winning a few grammies on his mixtape... how much pressure would his first album be if he got a grammy for so far gone!?!? how much pressure would he have for the rest of his career


thats a good comparison, because it would also be ridiculous to award someone a grammy before they even released an album.

By the way, here is Martin Luther King's Nobel acceptance speech:

I accept the Nobel Prize for Peace at a moment when twenty-two million Negroes of the United States of America are engaged in a creative battle to end the long night of racial injustice. I accept this award in behalf of a civil rights movement which is moving with determination and a majestic scorn for risk and danger to establish a reign of freedom and a rule of justice.

I am mindful that only yesterday in Birmingham, Alabama, our children, crying out for brotherhood, were answered with fire hoses, snarling dogs and even death. I am mindful that only yesterday in Philadelphia, Mississippi, young people seeing to secure the right to vote were brutalized and murdered. And only yesterday more than 40 houses of worship in the State of Mississippi alone were bombed or burned because they offered a sunctuary to those who would not accept segregation.

I am mindful that debilitating and grinding poverty afflicts my people and chains them to the lowest rung of the economic ladder.

Therefore, I must ask why this prize is awarded to a movement which is beleaguered and committed to unrelenting struggle; to a movement which has not won the very peace and brotherhood which is the essence of the Nobel Prize.

After contemplation, I conclude that this award which I receive on behalf of that movement is profound recognition that nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral question of our time -- the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to violence and oppression.

Civilization and violence are antithetical concepts. Negroes of the United States, following the people of India, have demonstrated that nonviolence is not sterile passivity, but a powerful moral force which makes for social transformation. Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace, and thereby transform this pending cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood.

If this is to be achieved, man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. The tortuous road which has led from Montgomery, Alabama, to Oslo bears witness to this truth. This is a road over which millions of Negroes are travelling to find a new sense of dignity.

This same road has opened for all Americans a new ear of progress and hope. It has led to a new Civil Rights bill, and it will, I am convinced, be widened and lengthened into a superhighway of justice as Negro and white men in increasing numbers create alliances to overcome their common problems.

I accept this award today with an abiding faith in America and an audacious faith in the future of mankind. I refuse to accept despair as the final response to the ambiguities of history. I refuse to accept the idea that the "isness" of man's present nature makes him morally incapable of reaching up for the eternal "oughtness" that forever confronts him.

I refuse to accept the idea that man is mere flotsom and jetsom in the river of life unable to influence the unfolding events which surround him. I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.

I refuse to accept the cynical notion that nation after nation must spiral down a militaristic stairway into the hell of thermonuclear destruction. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant.

I believe that even amid today's motor bursts and whining bullets, there is still hope for a brighter tomorrow. I believe that wounded justice, lying prostrate on the blood-flowing streets of our nations, can be lifted from this dust of shame to reign supreme among the children of men.

I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits. I believe that what self-centered men have torn down, men other-centered can build up. I still believe that one day mankind will bow before the altars of God and be crowned triumphant over war and bloodshed, and nonviolent redemptive goodwill will proclaim the rule of the land.

"And the lion and the lamb shall lie down together and every man shall sit under his own vine and fig tree and none shall be afraid."

I still believe that we shall overcome.

This faith can give us courage to face the uncertainties of the future. It will give our tired feet new strength as we continue our forward stride toward the city of freedom. When our days become dreary with low-hovering clouds and our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, we will know that we are living in the creative turmoil of a genuine civilization struggling to be born.

Today I come to Oslo as a trustee, inspired and with renewed dedication to humanity. I accept this prize on behalf of all men who love peace and brotherhood. I say I come as a trustee, for in the depths of my heart I am aware that this prize is much more than an honor to me personally.

Every time I take a flight I am always mindful of the man people who make a successful journey possible -- the known pilots and the unknown ground crew.

So you honor the dedicated pilots of our struggle who have sat at the controls as the freedom movement soared into orbit. You honor, once again, Chief (Albert) Luthuli of South Africa, whose struggles with and for his people, are still met with the most brutal expression of man's inhumanity to man.

You honor the ground crew without whose labor and sacrifices the jet flights to freedom could never have left the earth.

Most of these people will never make the headlines and their names will not appear in Who's Who. Yet when years have rolled past and when the blazing light of truth is focused on this marvelous age in which we live -- men and women will know and children will be taught that we have a finer land, a better people, a more noble civilization -- because these humble children of God were willing to suffer for righteousness' sake.

I think Alfred Nobel would know what I mean when I say that I accept this award in the spirit of a curator of some precious heirloom which he holds in trust for its true owners -- all those to whom beauty is truth and truth beauty -- and in whose eyes the beauty of genuine brotherhood and peace is more precious than diamonds or silver or gold.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
Sounds like the situation was pretty f**ked up and progress was still in it's infancy stages doesn't it?

No, it's not really a good comparison at all... It's actually a f**ken retarded comparrison.

We are comparing Drake and Grammys to Obama getting people in the Global Community to speak to each other who hate each others guts?...

Yall sound like you're 15 years old.

1. i dont see why we gotta talk about mlk's prize, cant we just talk about obama's?



2. martin is a whole other discussion, i feel he had done more by the time he won it than obama has.


3. even if mlk hadnt done enough, but still won it, doesnt mean that obama should also win it. the prize is losing its validity, gore shouldnt have won it either.

real talk... I GUESS THE HATERS want to really FEEL/SMELL the impact of obama...JUST WAIT... give him 2-3 years and you'll be able to see and feel the changes...
this sums up what an inbred retard you truly are. this is EXACTLY what all the "haters" are trying to say. wait the 2-3 years for him to actually DO SOMETHING and then we can give him some bulls**t award. gtfoh.

im not saying there was someone out there more deserving.

but obama shouldnt win by default because theres noone better out there.



theyve chosen not to give it out in the past because they felt there were no worthy candidates.

someone stated it better, fact for fact but like i said, he has RESTORED CREDIBILITY for this country...he is f!ghting for universal healthcare that has never been passed before, hes met with ALOT of world leaders and remained calm despite disagreements with world leaders... and has handled the recession very well.. and he has brought the world together to an extent, even when he was campaigning...

i dont see anything wrong with this, except that the haters are gonna make higher expectations of him

i just dont feel like that even comes close to being nobel peace prize worthy
