Much to my mother's dismay, I have not posted about Obama's victory. I try not to write about what other people have already posted. Now that I think about it, that is not a good idea, especially when it come to a historical event of this magnitude.
I am going to refer back to a previous post of mine. For those of you who did not click on the link, it was about the what the "average black man" in America is. I got some very very nice response, and to this day that post is one of my favorites.
"So you don't support Obama?? Is that why you have not posted about him and his decisive victory?"
"Nothing to say huh??? I knew it. I knew you would not be in line with the most important black man since Dr. King."
I'm not responding because you are an idiot.
Anyhow, Obama's presidency will redefine what it means to be a black man in America. I am hoping that nothing but positivity will come from Obama and his family being in the limelight and that the world will address what it means to be a black man.
In my eyes, the face of the "average black man" has changed.
NOW WE HAVE HOPE
(Are you happy now mama???)
