That's right folks, I am officially a part of history now.
What am I talking about?
Well, I about to tell ya.
I have cast my vote for the first Black Man to be nominated to the most esteemed office on the face of the earth.
That's right my little chick-a-dees..
I have early voted for Barack Hussein Obama.
Even if my man does not win, I can tell my Grand Kids that I participated in this historic event. This is the most important election in United States History, and I was a part of it.
I am damn proud that I was alive to be able to do this. I never thought I would see it happen in my lifetime, and I am only 35 years old. I can imagine what my grand-parents are thinking.
Even though his O-ness was not my first pick, he is my pick now.
I do not know if he will win, I still think that the rethugs will pull a fast one, but at least I did my part.
It just makes me feel good to say that now maybe the world will stop judging us (Black men), by what the "news" outlets and BET show them.
There are millions of (Black) men just like Big O, and now that we have one on the world stage, maybe... just maybe shit around here will be a little different.
I know that Barack is not The Black man's savior, but now at least all those little kids that have no hope for the future can look up and see this Black Man that looks like them, their father,their uncle or Grandfather sitting in the big seat behind the big desk in the big white house and say, 'I can do that too'.
The Audacity of Hope....
Yep, today was a good day.
No matter what happens.
