This image speaks volumes, I can't help but wonder if non-black individuals will look at images like this and those that are similar and feel fear; inplace of a sense of deep and abiding happiness.

Jazzy - My hope is that all Americans (regardless of race or nationality) will feel pride at knowing that our nation is truly at a turning point in dealing with the issue of race. If a Blackman can become POTUS ... then we may find it easier to accept people of African descent as governors, senators, CEOs and neighbors...

I love it. brings tars to my eyes. I so hope he makes it. Would be nice for a change to have a president who was for freedom rather than exploitation!

My first response to this images was to wonder whether or not our ancestor could have imagined that a Black man would be a major party nominee for the presidency, just 40 years or so after the Civil Rights Movement.

But then I realized that even I, as recently as early 2008, was barely able to imagine such a milestone taking place in my own lifetime.

Ajuan - I think that GWC-Jr would have been very proud of the Obama campaign. I suspect he would be maxed out on his personal campaign contribution ... and he would be smiling every time he saw Obama on television...
