Barack Obama: 44th President of the United States of America

November 4, 2008
Filed under: politics — bcd @ 11:59 pm

having just passed my 39th birthday, i’ve been reflecting on all the things that i have seen pass in my life; i almost never would have guessed that our country would have been capable of electing a multiracial candidate to the highest office of our land.  not in my life time.

maybe that’s part of the baggage of spending my whole life in the South: an acute awareness of racism.  its pervasiveness.  the almost ubiquitousness of it.

i hope people realize that this is not the prize, we are not at the end of the road.  our nation is very divided.  the campaign readily shone the light of truth on the issues that face us.  there is a lot of work ahead.

about seven or eight years ago i told my wife that the only way we as a nation will ever beat our nation’s history is to become a country of mocha-colored people.  to become post-racial.  while i know it will never completely happen as such, i can dream.

tonight is a good first step!
