Black Power

August 29, 2008

On the 45 anniversary of Dr. King’s almost canonical I Have a Dream speech, Barak Obama accepted his party’s nomination for president of the United States. This is, without a doubt, a moment never envisioned by millions of slaves and their descendants continuing the struggle for equal opportunity and representation in our nations public landscape. His accomplishment is not just significant for his life and that of his family or even the DNC. It is a watershed for people of colour everwhere. As he follows in the footsteps of Hattie McDaniel, Jackie Robinson and Hiram Revels, Obama is blazing a new trail to give passage to those who will follow after him.

If that weren’t enough, the new Beverly Hills 90210 will actually have a black guy in the cast.

I’m proud to be an American.

Good point, but I still plan on writing in Michael Phelps.

‘We, in Ireland , can’t figure out why you people are even bothering to hold an election in the United States

On one side, you had a pants wearing female lawyer, married to another lawyer who can’t seem to keep his pants on, who just lost a long and heated primary against a lawyer, who goes to the wrong church, who is married to yet another lawyer, who doesn’t even like the country her husband wants to run !

Now…On the other side, you have a nice old war hero whose name starts with the appropriate ‘Mc’ terminology, married to a good looking younger woman who owns a beer distributorship !!

What in God’s name are ya lads thinkin over in the colonies !

“Those who believe that they believe in God, but without passion in their hearts, without anguish in their mind, without uncertainty, without doubt, without an element of despair even in their consolation, believe only in the God idea, not God Himself.”
– Miguel de Unamuno
