No one on the corner has swagger like us....
It feels good to be proven wrong.
I did not think his O-ness could pull it off. I thought that all those folks that said they wanted change out in public would reneg when they were in the privacy of that booth.
Boy, was I wrong!!!
Big O got 65% of the white vote.
He got 67% of the Latino vote.
We all know he got probably 99.9% of the Black vote. The only Black dude I know that voted against him was my man Daddio911. But he is on a planet all to himself.
This is a good day to be an American.
I am finally represented in a positive manner to the world.
I no longer have to be a basketball player, a football player or a rapper to be considered as having made it.
I don't have to sing for you or dance for you, or make you laugh to be considered a "good" American.
I don't have to be a movie star to be considered mainstream.
Now I have someone that looks like me, talks like me and acts like me, talking FOR me to the world.
There is someone that shares my heritage representing me.
The notion that some people in this country have that Black People are inferior to the rest of the people that inhabit this great country of ours was squashed last night.
This election was never about electing the first "black" president.
It was about being accepted and recognized for being American, no matter what color your skin is.
This election was not about only me or people that look like me.
It was about being American.
For the first time in my life I am proud of my country.
