Arthur Lewin; The Rest Is Up 2 Us…
(ThyBlackMan.com) They say the Devil’s greatest trick is to make people think he doesn’t exist. The media’s biggest scam has been to make us forget that in the Oval Office, right now, a Black man sits.
Remember the hope and joy that flooded us all, not just African Americans, but all Americans who voted for him, and even many who did not, the day he came to office? What happened to it? Where did it go? Why the long, sad faces? We are all so so critical, or defensive, of what he has, or has not, done. Obama will not be president forever, people! Don’t let this precious time slip by and then look back with regret that we did not savor the moment we were in power, we were empowered to each climb our own rugged peaks and be whatever it is that we really want to be.
Now is the time to stand tall. Now is the time to put your shoulder to the wheel. There is nothing, nothing, you cannot do, nothing your children cannot aspire to. Yes, the battle is not yet won. Yes, there is work to be done. But the greatest thing that our Black Commander-in-Chief can do is stay Black and keep living with his family in the White House.
Yes, America has a race problem, and a greed problem, and an education problem. But who do you think is going to solve them, if not us? Isn’t it better to light a thousand candles than just curse the darkness, especially now, now that we have a beautiful Black family leading this nation?
People, we might not agree with all his policies, and we certainly should oppose and lobby against those we dislike, but please take the time to smell the coffee. Savor these years when one of our peers sits and reigns over all the land. We are living in the time of a Black President! Some people don’t like that. But that is their problem, not ours. They are just going to have to get over it. Never, ever, will I let them rain on my parade. Ignore them. Listen to the sweet, sweet music in the air telling us, if we reach for the sky, the stars will be ours!
