Thank You Barack Obama
I’d like to thank you for becoming the first Black president of the United States of America, even though your mother is a white woman. I’d like to thank you for striving for change, even though there has been little evidence of much difference. I’d like to thank you for bringing the first Black family into the bedrooms of the White House, even though it represents nothing more than a mirror of our past presence in the so called white house. I’d like to thank you for gracefully assimilating into American elite culture, although integration will not bring us true liberty. I’d like to thank you for standing for our hopes and dreams, even though reality is far more apparent now than before. Last but not least, I’d like to thank you for showing us the ugly truth about our existence amongst those who want to destroy us, even though you make it look so good.
Thank you, Black man.
