Congratulations, Senator Obama. You will be the 44th president of the United States of America. You managed to break the racial barrier
. This is a truly historic event.
While I am disappointed that my choice didn't win, there is a silver lining to this: the racial barrier is busted, forever.
Senator Obama had humble beginnings. He was born black and Muslim into a pre-Civil Rights United States. Against all odds, he made it to the most powerful office in the world and by a comfortable and decisive margin.
Gone are the excuses that a minority cannot achieve success due to racial oppression. This has been shown to be the lie it is.
Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson, you no longer have a voice. You can shut the hell up, now.
"Yes we can" was the mantra.
As it turns out, you could have all along. I never EVER want to hear that someone can't achieve due to discrimination again. That is a demonstrable lie. It is an excuse to be lazy. The only thing holding you back is... YOU.
Shut up. Stop whining and playing victim. Roll up your sleeves and get to work. This is America and you are the sole master of your own success or failure.
