Email forward

I try not to do forwards but I loved this one and I hope you do too:)



An older white guy asked his older black friend,
Are you
voting for Barack Obama just because he's black'?
So the older black guy fires back and says,
'
Are you not voting
for him because he's black?



'Why can't I vote for him just because he's black? Hell in this
country men are pulled over everyday just because they're black, passed over for promotions just because they're black, considered to be criminals just because they're black, but you don't seem to have a problem with that!'


'This country was built with the sweat and whip off the slaves back, and now a descendant of those same slaves has a chance to lead the same country where we were not even considered to be people . Where we weren't allowed to be educated, drink from the same water fountains, eat in the same restaurants, or even vote, so you damn right I'm going to vote for him!'

'Not just because he's black, But because he is hope, he is
change, and he now allows me to understand when my grandson says he wants to be president when he grows up, it is not a fairy tale but a short term goal, because he sees, understand, and knows, he can achieve, withstand, and do anything just because he's black!'


Thanks for the email Michele!

I agree totally with the post! I could vote for him JUST b/c he's black and I wouldn't give a damn about what anybody thought about it.

Obama '08 baby!

This is the most reasonable explanation I've ever heard in a rebuttle to voting for barack because he's black. It's better than not having a reason for your reason. LOL
