I tried to post this last night, but blogger was being unfriendly to me. For those of you who haven't seen this video or read the speech yet, please don't miss out. Barrack Obama is addressing, in plain and clear English (yet, not without the amazing and inspiring rhetoric for which he is both loved and derided) the derisiveness with which the issue of race is now being addressed in this campaign. But, more importantly, with which it is still viewed in this country.
You know, if people actually stop and take head of these words, if they were to actually listen to what was being said- maybe we could finally start having the dialogue in a grown up and mature fashion, that is needed to make this truly a nation of many, more than the sum of its (divided) parts.
That being said, I can't say it any better than Obama already has.
