Dear, Mr. Chocolate President-elect...one half chocolate and the other half vanilla smooth.
America can now truly take pride in her name, the great mixing bowl of the world. Were the
descendant of an African immigrant and white female American could become the Forty
fourth President of the USA. One mans dreams once deferred now comes true...Were one
woman’s refusal to get up that lit a fuse.
Where once hatred made some people blow up a church and killed innocent children in
attempt to shatter that dream of equality for all of us. Where once upon a time a black man
would have died, just because of the color of his skin and not the content of his heart. Now
some forty years plus later...we all stand together united as one nation and prepare to
inaugurate our first Chocolate President!
We all now stand proud in knowing we all managed to get through the division that once kept
us so far apart and all have arose to the occasion were we can now truly look past the color
of ones skin and judge each other by the content of what’s in one's heart and words. Lady
Liberty take off your veil that does covers your eyes and take a look at what America has
done! Mr. Constitution take a break, no need for anyone else to debate your words...For
America’s people have spoken and delivered on those very words that were written! All are
created equally and now let freedom ring!
