    Questions now that we have a minority President:
    1) Are white men officially out of style in Presidential-politics (peep the voting breakdowns-McCain won white men overwhelmingly and still lost)?
    2) Considering that the President-elect & his wife are both black, both Harvard Law graduates, and neither of them grew up connected or wealthy in any way, is Affirmative Action still needed in this country?
    3) Will the larger population of black people begin to see themselves as equals in intellectual circles just as they do in sports & entertainment?
    4) Will black men in the hip hop community as a whole, have an epiphany and all head out to Sears and buy belts to hold up their pants up at least waist level from now on?
    5) Do intelligent black people ever have to hear “why are you talking white” ever ever ever again?
    6) Finally, will we get a OBAMA song/interlude on every single hip hop album released in 2009?

    I have to disagree @ Randy.

    I know you like to be “against the grain” and all, but you don’t see the big picture. Bush cabinet really left alot of Americans not having faith in the country WE LIVE IN. The event last night single handily reestablished faith which will transcend into peole want to volunteer and work for the government, Children don’t have to worry about that proverbial skylight and can accomplish anything.

    I didnt vote for Obama, I voted for:
    My Present family
    My future family
    My business I just started
    My neighbors
    My Niggas

    At the end of the day, I hope he’s atleast a decent president. He has ALOT of work cut out for him. But its a hell of start.

    That’s the whole point Randolph! However valid the notion that John McCain agreed with George Bush 90% you can’t deny that by changing party’s on the presidential level we will have a bigger chance for policy changes (that positively affect regular people like us) than if McCain won. Jesus and MLK weren’t loved by everyone during their time that’s a historical fact but what they like Obama did was inspire people to be part of the process of change. For you to think that things are gonna be the same says more about you than Obama or government. His winning might not affect you but the next generation of young black men have new hope that if you do the right things, think positive, get an education (stuff our parents always stressed but without immediate validation) you CAN change things. If nothing else we should all be proud of that.

    I voted and I’m proud of the outcome.

    Obama has already inspired a nation of young voters (and people like me, who have been discouraged by the outcome of previous elections) to go out and vote. It was up to us to select a leader. I KNOW change wont take place over night but I do believe that Obama will lead us in the right direction. I don’t consider him to be the equivalent to Jesus Christ or MLK. I consider him to be exactly who he is: Barack Obama. His shouldn’t be compared to any other previous leader/icon/etc. Must we really tear him down ALREADY? Stop dwelling on possible negative outcomes, be positive and do your part to make this a better nation.

    Wall must contribute to the change. The “man” can’t hold us back, so scrap that excuse and do what we ALL should’ve been doing for decades. Work hard, educate ourselves and prepare our children to do the same and to respect themselves. Encourage them to go that extra mile because it is possible to achieve anything you put your mind to. If you already acquire these traits, continue to progress. Some of us need to stop relying on government hand outs, hook ups, the NBA & NFL, record deals and other so-called “easy” ways to get ahead. It’s really getting old and redundant. Let’s face it; we all won’t be rich & famous. We seriously need to explore other options. Get off of the corners and get a job, save money and invest, own our own property, etc…

    We need to be ambitious! Nobody owes us anything. Whether we like it or not, we are all in this together. We all have to make an effort just like we did yesterday. It won’t be easy but we have it a hell of lot better than our ancestors. Let’s not let their struggle be in vain any longer.

    That’s just my opinion. To each his own.
