President Obama!

Strong Black Love, Strong Black Marriage!

The Fist bump felt around the world!

I just thought this was cute so I added it!

November 4, 2008 America has it's first Afrikan American Commander in Chief. Barack H. Obama, Senator from Illinois is now the America's 6th Black President (According to J.A. Rogers, There have been Five Previous Black Presidents But that's another Blog) well, actually the 1st undeniable Afrikan American President!

As I stepped into the voting booth and voted I was filled with unexpected emotions. I still am! Happiness! Excitement! Fear! Cautiousness! Hope! I think that the whole country feels the same thing. I loved seeing the beautiful Obama family. God Bless them.

It's been so long! Frederick Douglas, Marcus Garvey, Booker T., Dr. Dubois, Gabriel Prosser, Denmark Vessey, Nat Turner, Malik Shabazz, John Brown, Sojourner Truth, Harriett Tubman, Ron Brown, Mickey Leland, JFK, RFK and even Jimmy Carter have waited for this day! It's a first! A wonderful, Long overdue first!
Tonight's your night Barack! You did it with style, God Bless you! Brother!
BE Mindful! BE Prayerful! BE Careful!

A wonderful day! We've been waiting since Emancipation Proclamation, Dred Scott, Plessy v. Ferguson, Brown v. Bd. of Ed, and so many others. The night has gone and the day has dawned.

It was a great day-I cried all night and today. To experience this-was...it was speechless. For once America looked past skin color. For once everything MLK, Malcom X and many other have fought for have paid off. Theres finally a man of color in the Office. I am so proud of this country. Very proud.

Lord have mercy, I never thought I'd see the day that a Black man would be elected President! I'm sure our parents and grandparents can tell us how things were back in the day in regards to segregation and racism...we only know bits and pieces as we were not born of that era. But I know that we have hope for a better future. And we have finally rejoined the world community?? Oh, happy day!
