Our collective self-esteem
I am not one of those who allows the weight of the Black community to be put on my shoulders. I am not the one who cringes when I'm with a group of whites and a "ghetto" brother or sister walks in doing their thang. I say, "Do you, baby!"
But I tell you what. Today I feel happy for US ALL. Black children can dream a new dream. I feel like I can hold my head a little higher and walk a bit taller. I may be 6 foot today, I was just 5'10" before the Iowa caucus!
Thanks Barack! I was going to do it anyway, but Monday I am changing political parties so I can vote for you in my states primary election.
