To whom much is given, much is required!
An older white guy asked his older Black friend, 'Are you voting for
Barack Obama just because he's Black'? So the older Black guy fires back
and says, 'Are you not voting for him because he's Black?
Why can't I vote for him just cause he's Black? Hell, in this country
men are pulled over everyday just cause they're Black, passed over for
promotions just cause they're Black, considered to be criminals just
cause they're Black, but you don't seem to have a problem with that!!!
This country was built with the sweat and whip......off the slaves back!
and now a descendent of those same slaves has a chance to lead the same
country where we weren't even considered to be people!!
Where we weren't allowed to be educated, drink from the same water
fountains, eat in the same restaurants, or even vote, so you damn right
I'm going to vote for him! Not just because he's black......
But because he is hope, he is change, and he now allows me to believe
when my grandson says he wants to be president when he grows up, it is
not a fairy tale but an achievable goal,
Because he sees, understand, and knows, he can achieve, withstand, and
anything just because he's Black!
