President Barack Hussein Obama II, was more than just a president for Black people. He represented the very thing that Black folks did not think was a possibility. The ability to rally a nation in support of a Black president was no easy fete. I watched as Black men and women, some who are legends themselves like Jesse Jackson, cried like babies. They thought this day would never come, that a Black man could sit in the highest office in the nation was unimaginable. As I watched those black folks crying, I wonder what does it mean to them to have a president who is Black. I’m sure they’re not looking for special favors. I know they did not vote for him just because he’s Black. President Barack Obama II represented a struggle that Black people had been fighting for centuries, a struggle to just be taken seriously in our quest for achievement, hope that people will surely be judged by the content of their character, rather than the color of their skin, hope that a new world order is in the making because in the old one, no black man would have dared tried to make it to the White House, hope for Black people that we are equal in achieving equality, and hope that our struggle will not continue to be difficult in this great United States.
President Obama represented our voice in that we are able to be heard. He meant to Black people that we can feel sadness to the injustices that are done. He represents the hope that the dialogue between Black and White America can take place. He also represents inclusion for Black people. If we never have another Black President of the United States, Black people know what it feels like to see a dream come true. It gives hope to the children, men, and women of the United States, that anything is possible even if you are Black. Barack Obama was more than just a President, he was Dr. King's dream, Malcolm X's vision, Rosa Park's boycott. Thank you President Obama for 8 great years and bringing truth to the motto of "YES WE CAN"!!
