BARACK OBAMA WON!!!
The inner joy I am experiencing today and experienced last night will be hard to beat for a long long time. It was better than the aquafina flow, better than super head, better than finding the perfect mate … it was just … remarkable.
President Obama (has a nice ring … don’t it) has proven that as a people there is nothing we cannot accomplish.
And I don’t just want to make this a victory for Black people. We as a nation have gained someone with the charisma, vision, and motivation to really enact some change and correct the mistakes of the past 8 years. I am very proud to be an American and can now look at the next 4 years with a true sense of hope.
But as the title says … there is a bad part.
While I was watching the coverage last night on CNN, one of the anchormen started talking about the impact of an African-American President. Apparently he teaches or is in somehow involved with schools in urban communities. He said (paraphrased) “I don’t want to hear any complaints at all from my students. They can’t say anyone is holding them back anymore.” Essentially … he was declaring that racism and discrimination were over.
While driving to DC … my brother’s friend said “You know their gonna start saying the N* word now.”
A few days ago I had a vision … a powerful one.
I saw across the country … people glued to the TV watching the results … white and black cheering in unity. Suddenly, Barack is announced as the next President … and then every Caucasian person turns to their African-American counterpart … looks them in the eye … and says … “Happy? Racism is dead.”
So … that to me is the possible bad part. Because a black man has managed to obtain the most powerful position in the free world … there is a good chance white america will officially consider racism dead … although its not. There will continue to be injustice, discrimination will still exists, and there still is work to be done … but who knows how this is going to affect “relations”.
On a positive note … I finally feel the youth will have a great and real role model to look up to. WIth the possibility of being President, black yoth everywhere will start trying hard, striving for more, and accomplishing great things. This may be the single starting point of the “revolution” … and I guess it was televised.
Oh yeah … because this site is about dating and sh*t … uhhhh … Black Love in the White House. See …
