One Love! One Heart!
Let’s get together and feel all right.

My main homie Obama will be speaking today at 11 a.m. EST. CNN is covering it.  ~CNN~

Did you know that there is a (slightly smaller) replica of the White House in Atlanta.  The 16,500 sf home is now up for sell because the real estate developer who has been living in it for the past seven years can’t afford it any more. You know it’s bad when the White House is for sale…or has that always been the case? Hmmmm ~NY Times~

You know about the case of Oscar Grant, right? He’s the young, unarmed black man who was shot in the back and killed by an Oakland police officer while he was spread out on the ground in compliance with officer instructions. Cell phone videos captured the whole thing. Well, Oakland isn’t haven’t it! There was a protest the other day and it got ugly. ~NY Times~

Chris Matthews says he is not running for Senate. Awww, I was kinda looking forward to hearing his laugh echo through Senate chambers. ~Reuters~

    Well, if Obama, who I voted for in good faith, has put all those Caucasian people in his cabinet and is looking for change he is sadly mistaken. We have had nothing but Caucasian people in cabinet posts and look where it has got us! In a big, huge mess. Doesn’t he have enough sense to know that if it is broken fix it. He should have put more African-Americans, which is what I as an African American thought he was going to do, in his cabinet. Also more Asian American, American Indian, Hispanic American, etc, in more post positions. Now that would have been change in which we could believe. Perhaps then we would see a real change. When are these polititians going to learn? You put the people in office who are suffering and you get improvement because they really need it. Not a group of people who basically don’t know the meaning of hardship.

    It’s not the race but the qualification and experiences are focus of cabinet posts selection; not that people in other races aren’t qualified enough. The US is in dire change ASAP where we need most qualified and experienced people in charge to mend the fences wrecked by the storms.

    I thought one of the many important things about the election of President-Elect Obama was that it was a big step towards Dr. King’s dream for OUR nation… that a man or a woman should not be judged by the color of their skin, but rather for the content of their character. I am saddened by the thought that you, Redphilly, either don’t agree with Dr. King’s dream for our nation or that you don’t see it in the election of and Cabinet selections of President-Elect Obama. Additionally, from my knowledge of President-Elect Obama’s vision for America and President-Elect Obama’s appreciation of Dr. King’s dream, he has appointed a Cabinet that is the most diverse in the history of our or any other nation. Redphilly, in the light of what my opinion is, I wish that you would take a moment to reconsider your view. Hopefully you will see the glass as half-full and President-Elect Obama’s election and Cabinet choices as tangible progress in the direction of Dr. King’s dream. I know we have not yet made it to the promised land, but the only way to get there is to walk… and to walk you have to take steps, one foot in front of the other.
