Black history month never meant so much to so many. We have come a long way, baby. The dreams of so many black and white people came to pass last year when the highest office of the land finally came to be filled by an African american. Compared to birmingham, alabama in the 60's or Chicago or watts or even LA in '92, that shit is fresh in all our minds. It seems like a triumph over evil and stupidity. I know it is symbolic and we all respond in good faith. The call has been answered. The seat is now available to anyone.
