TALK TO THE DADDY
Hello. Come on in. The daddy writes about current events, literature, music and, once in a while, drops something on you from back in the day to make you pause and ponder, stop and stare, and begin to wonder. Who knows? You may start to pace the floor, shake your head from side to side, then fall down on bended knees in a praying position and cry, "Lawd, have mercy! What is this world coming to?" Check yourself! But this blog is NOT about the daddy. It's about you: your boos, your fam, your hood, your country...our hopes and dreams of a better tomorrow. So let's make a pact: the daddy will put it on the track if you'll chase it down and hit him back. Together, we can definitely take it to another level. Shall we?"

Today, the daddy is feeling the Barack Obama presidential candidacy. It evolved from decades of black struggle, a struggle which eventually made it easier for Americans to transcend years of racist fear and ignorance and say, "Yes, we can!"
And it's to see that his victory represents a history that evolved through the death of Emmit Till, the Montgomery boycott where Dr. King was arrested, through
the civil rights struggle, the black militancy movement, the
assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, the presidential candidacy of Shirley
Chisholm and Jessie Jackson, and the victorious
candidacy of President-Elect Barack Obama.
