For the first time, NO not that movie, but there’s something positive going on in America as Barack Obama (with Joe Biden as VP) is now in full swing in his US presidential bid to become the first Black US president. And that is if the American tides would make everything smooth-sailing for him. I guess it’s time for colored people to be this significant and a force to reckon with in the predominantly white country. Apparently, what’s happening now is a tipping point for change in the landscape of American politics and the nation in general.
During the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado, not only the Democrats spoke but the colored people most importantly. I know Martin Luther King is as happy as every colored people are now in America. Offering more pragmatic solutions to their country’s issues and a seemingly closer connection with the youth, Obama is a refreshing hope for a better US of A and the rest of the world. Of course, we could not discount the fact that the changes unfolding now in the USA will radiate to the rest of the world.
Relatedly, here’s John Legend‘s new song “If You’re Out There” (you can download the song here) that premiered during the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
A call-to-action and evocation of human potential, “If You’re Out There” reflects the themes of hope and change, responsibility and leadership, and commitment to a better tomorrow expressed in the principles of Barack Obama and the hearts of the American people.
But I guess it’s not only for the American people, but for everybody as well.
