It's Official! Yes We Can!

  Just moments ago, Barack Obama was officially voted as the Democratic nominee for President of the United States of America at the Democratic National Convention.  After a few states officially gave their votes in their respective speechs, Sen. Hillary Clinton spoke over a cheerfully thunderous for NY and moved to suspend the roll call vote and officially name Sen. Obama the Democratic Nominee.  And so we have it.  History is made and it's still not over.  Now that's fabulous. You have less than 2 months to get your ish together and register to vote.  (Check out your states' official voter registration deadline here).  Now let's get it poppin'...

"I hate to rain on your

"I hate to rain on your parade, I don’t know why you Negroes are so HAPPY! What is going to change for black folks in this country, nothing!! Things will probably get worse. When you had all of these black candidates in the early 70s being elected, and black folks thought things were going to get better, what happened? They got worse! I know you folks are going to be upset, go back and do some research on black politicians, and what has it done for black folks in America." For real dude - they freed us a long time ago. You can leave the plantation now.

history in all kinds of ways.

history in all kinds of ways. the first afro-american to be nominated to the highest office in the land; his acceptance speech comes 45 years to the day of MLK's "i have a dream" speech; every platform he supports will help the country in insurmountable ways...black america, please help make history-we are standing on the throes of greatness, register to vote, and watch president obama tonight as he does all of us proud.

on our 18th birthday's my mother took us to get registered to vote, she made it clear that it was our duty and that women of all races and colors and our people fought and died for us to have the right that most people squander and in order to have a say we need to vote. if you don't vote then don't complain! for those hate mongers on this thread, we all still should and have every right to vote. . .all this "negros" this and "negros" that won't dissuade me from voting because if i could i'd vote twice! go sit on a tack!

I tell you one thing, Hillary

I tell you one thing, Hillary is a much bigger person than I am because I would have switch to independant and took my 18 million votes with me. Anywho, I think maybe the democratic party can heal now. I doubt it but my girl Hill is working on it. Congrats to Obama my fellow southsider of Chicago.

I'm actually going to be

I'm actually going to be working the polls at my campus and I'm excited.I'm glad to see someone I can identify with and who I believe can take the country in a new direction.But Barack can not do it alone.For whomever is voting for Barack do your part too.We can't be lazy.We can't be passive!We need to be more active.Uplift and encourage.Even though I know some won't, but a little does go a long way.I was listening to the TJMS the other morning where a couple of black women were weary about Barack.I think it's due to that they can't find a decent man.I wonder if women respect Hillary because she stayed with an adulter and to give women to stay with their half assed husbands.Oh well though!Anyways. To all the naysayers, pick up a book.Stop being ignorant and read what your candidate has done and what he plans on doing.Be active in your community.Do something!Stop complaining and make it happen.And I think some people are asking for a cheaper way out with this "Experience" crap.When you cut corners of course it's going to catch up to you.

White people aren't stupid. But this doesn't say too much about us blacks if we can do anything to better the world BECAUSE a white guy made us yet we can't take the initative to do it on our own. Be pessimistic if you want but don't OWENERSHIP away from Barack. He's an educated black man who is deciding to step up and fix the problem that we live in called America and he's made that deision on HIS OWN and not because a "white guy said so."
