Because He’s Black

My friend Rev. Joan sent this to me.

Because He’s Black

This older white guy asked me, ‘Are you voting for Barack Obama just because he’s Black?’

So I asked him, ‘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 are
Black, passed over for promotions just because they are Black, considered to
be criminals just because they are Black, but you don’t seem to have a
problem with that.
This country was built with the sweat and whip off the Black slaves back.
This same country where we weren’t 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 or granddaughter says they want to be president when they grow up, it is not a fairy tale but a short term goal,
Because they will see, understand, and know, that they can achieve, withstand, and do anything just because they are Black!
