All morning I've been talking about the potential implications Barack Obama's presidency may have on race relations not only in the United States, but the world over. While I have a problem with the term ‘race’ as a concept, this is a fantastic article on what it means to be Black in America today, and just how far change may go.
The article also mentions this text message that's being circulated around the country:
“Rosa sat so Martin could walk. Martin walked so Barack could run. Barack is running so our children can fly.”
