Obama and November 4th

As a Blackman stereotypes are commonplace, I remember being treated different because the way I talked. Some people said I was trying to be white because I used words most blacks don’t and enjoyed other things besides 2pac and gold chains (love dookie ropes though). My father was a great man he instilled in me a thirst for knowledge, he told me the most dangerous man is an educated man. I think my father carried the beliefs of great men of before him like MLK, Kennedy, W.E.B. Dubois, men who used there minds to create change. I think the political system is straight bullshit but Obama has shown me something I never thought I would see. Its not all the promises to middle class America that got me or the fact that he is part black, what got me is himself. Here stands the future of America a man with multiple backgrounds, a man of color who articulates himself very well, and a good father. But wait, in the black culture we don’t take care of our kids! We don’t speak well! We lack intelligence!

FALSE

I use to think one man cannot create change……………………….maybe I was wrong.

obama

I never voted before but today I will cast my vote for Obama, and not because a rapper or athlete said so I’m doing it for my sons.
