This must be what my grandfather talked about when he lived through major American movements in his lifetime and was proud to be everything he was. I'm glad to say to every naysayer -- you were wrong. I'm ecstatic you were proved wrong. While I am sure you will still have other rants, you were still wrong about the biggest moment in American history. We as black people need to let go of some of our doubts. Times have changed. Obama won by the biggest margin since President Lyndon B. Johnson. He won Florida and Virginia -- Gore and Kerry couldn't do that. It's a new tomorrow.

Damn, it was reported Obama won North Carolina and Indiana - Al Gore, John Kerry and even President Bill Clinton didn't win those two states. You know how black folks always complain, "We never stick together! Jews stick together! Asians stick together! Not black people -- we are just crabs in a bucket!" Well, now you can say we stuck together and created success.
Lastly, let's not forget -- whites supported Obama by 61%. People have changed and I hope we, as black people, let some of our assumptions go.
