Just Because He's Black
A white man asked his black friend,
'Are you voting for Barack Obama just because he's black?'
The black man responded by saying,
'Why not? Hell, in this country men
Are pulled over everyday just cause
They're black; passed over for
Promotions just cause they're black;
Considered to be criminals just
Cause they're black; and thousands of you
Won't be voting for him just because he's
Black! However, you do not
Seem to have a problem with that! This country
Was built with the sweat
And whip off the black slaves' back, and now a
Descendent of those same
Slaves has a chance to lead the same country,
Where we weren't even
Considered to be people, where we weren't allowed
To be educated, drink
From the same water fountains, eat in the same
Restaurants, or even
Vote. So yes! I'm going to vote for him! But it's
Not just because he's
Black, but because he is hope, he is change, and he
Now allows me to
Understand when my grandson says that he wants to be
President when he
Grows up, it is not a fairy tale but a short term goal.
He now sees,
Understands and knows that he can achieve, withstand and do
ANYTHING just because he's black.
Think About It!!!!!!!!!
