WE MADE IT


YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS


AT 47 YEARS OLD, BARACK OBAMA BECOMES THE 44TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. I AM SPEECHLESS. WE'VE MADE HISTORY. HE WILL BE THE PRESIDENT OF THE WHITE, BLACK, RICH,POOR.I JUST WANNA GET OUTSIDE AND SCREAM.

I will always remember, I will never forget that on November 4th, 2008 Barack Hussein Obama was elected President of the United States. I will always remember, I will never forget I was wearing a black sweater and was sitting on the floor of my living room at around 11:00pm when Wolfe Blitzer said : Barack Obama is the next president of the United States. I screamed and screamed and screamed. Even though I kinda felt he was going to win, just the reality of it hit me. It hit me that history has just been made right there in the midst of my living room. One day, inshallah I will be able to tell to my grandkids that I was there when the son of an African immigrant and a white woman from Kansas made history. I'm feeling it, I'm just feeling a positive change coming! Today, I am part of History!And you are too!!!

Share your thoughts, what were you doing when you heard of the news? what were you wearing? where were you?T

Folks,

Election of Barack Obama does not in any way signify an even society with all racial inequalities forgotten.

If America truly has to defeat racism, a native American(Red Indian) has to lead the country.
However, the chances of this happening is equal to the chances of a non-muslim becoming the king of Saudi Arabia or Iran or Pakistan for istance. I will really scream in joy when a non-muslim becomes the head of state in Saudi Arabia.
