There are no excuses anymore
I think many may have missed the real text of Obama's victory speech this morning. At least the opening part below where he proclaims. If there is anyone out there who doubts that America is a place where all things are possible... tonight is your answer Is this his message to black America that there are no longer any excuses for underachieving. That America is a fair place and that if you fail it is not the system that failed you. Or am I seeing to much here. I can't help remember Bill O'Reilly's comments a few weeks ago when he stated that many black Americans fear that an Obama victory will remove the oppressed minority argument from the equation. Because as of today, to be black in America is to be part of the establishment. The President elect, the man who ultimately calls the shots and who hold so much power is black. America is no longer a country run by rich white people as Reverend Wright would put it. Was this Obama's angle. What ye think ?
