A white man asked his black friend, ‘Are you voting for Barack Obama
just because he’s black’? The black man responded by saying, why not?
Hell, in this country men are pulled over everyday just because they are
black, passed over for promotions just because
considered to be criminals just because they are black, and there are
going to be thousands of you who will not be voting for him just cause
he’s black! However, you do not seem to have a problem with that! This
country was built with the sweat and whip on the slaves black back, and
now a black man has a chance to lead the country, where we weren’t even
allowed to be educated, drink from the same water fountains, eat in the
same restaurants, or even vote, so yes, I’m going to vote for him! But
it’s not just because he’s black, but because he is hope, he is change,
and he now allows me to understand when my grandson says he wants to be
president when he grows up, it is not a fairy tale but a short term
goal, because he sees, understands, and knows, he can achieve,
withstand, and do anything just because he’s black!
