When I was a little girl and I thought we would have a black president but I didn’t think it would be in my life time. I think it’s interesting that my grandmother grew up a share cropper on Mc Cain property in Mississippi. At time when black men were called negro, colored and nigger. Meaning that it was socially acceptable to disrespect a black man and now our president elect is a black man. I think this a great quote that sums up the sentiments Obama supporters feel, “Let us realize that the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”-MLK
The one thing about history is causes you to examine the past. Last night election was historic but also was a reminder of the division this country has dealt with. Most of the deep south states were republican , it makes you think a little about the civil war and the barbaic past the South has had with race relations.
Obama’s win ones the door for minorities in politics. It gives hope to children of single parent families. It gives hope to the poor. It inspires US to believe a little while longer in a dream deffered.
