Seriously loving this link from The Root: Five things white folks shouldn’t do now that Obama has won the election.
My favorite is No. 1: “Don’t personally congratulate all your black friends.” Seriously, my black co-workers are bristling with aggravation over such sentiments.
Obama is not THEIR president, he’s OUR president, and he couldn’t have gotten elected without plenty of white votes.
One day, I hope, we won’t be accused of electing a president because he’s black, or in spite of the fact that he’s black. It won’t matter what color he – or SHE – is.
