did anybody hear we’re gonna have a black president??

so, i’m sitting here watching 60 minutes and it’s completely devoted to president-elect obama’s first media interview since his victory a couple weeks ago (and michelle obama). all i can think is, ‘we have a black president. a black president. this guy is black. and he’s the president. of the united states. you know, that united states that wouldn’t let black people drink out of the same water fountains as white people about 50 years ago. that united states that shipped over boats full of black people as their property. yeah, that country. now, a black guy is running the joint.’

wow. i know it’s sort of cliché to harp on it, but it’s truly amazing and inspiring and unbelievable that our country has elected a black president.
incredible.
UPDATE: he just mentioned living next to a place called harold’s chicken shack…here comes the forwards about chicken and watermelon in the white house… honeymoon’s over…. 🙂

    I think it’s great that we have a black president, and that Americans are able to over come a lot of the hatred that still exists toward black people.

    All that said it seems like before the election there was a lot less coverage of race and now after the election there is a lot more coverage. I imagine once he is in office there will be more coverage on policy than race as well.

    All that said, I didn’t vote for Obama strictly because he was/ is black. I don’t want to take anything away from this historic moment, but I’m ready for the change that he is going to bring.
