Politics this week

We welcomed in our First African American President and First Black family into the White house (in part built by slaves). A young and intelligent President Barack Obama (47) First Lady Michelle Obama (45) daughters Malia, Sasha and even Marian Robinson Michelle’s mother to help and be there for her grandchildren. All a day after celebrating the National Holiday of Martin Luther King Jr. I found it impossible to hold back my tears while watching all this take place. Later to find out that Obama was sworn into office again on Jan 21st as a precautionary reason after the mishaps of the tangled wordings while taking the Oath of office.

We gave our farewell’s to George and Laura Bush as they headed back home to Texas after Bush was relieved of his two terms as President of the U.S. On CNN Martin Luther King III spoke that his fathers dream hasn’t been filled just yet, as we still have too many people still living in poverty. Caroline Kennedy dropped out of the run for the vacant New York Senate seat previously occupied by Hillary Clinton who is serving as our current United States Secretary of State under President Obama. Ted Kennedy was released from the hospital after suffering a seizure at the inaugural luncheon for Barack Obama. There are talks of Sarah Palin looking to pick up a multi million dollar book deal and that Democratic Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibran will be chosen to replace Clinton in the Senate.

On another note I published my first written article outside of blogging so if you could so kindly give it a view I would really appreciate that. America Welcomes Obama

Hopefully, you're not white. His economic advisor Robert Reich said that stimulus package should NOT benefit white males. Racism we can believe in...

rjjrdg, if you looked over my blog to the left in my side bar appears my photo a (black) brown skinned woman, so of course not, No I'm not white. I can see how the statement from Reich can be viewed as racism, but when you you listen more into it one can relate that Obama himself has stated we need to build the economy from the bottom up, so what's the big surprise now, I don't quite get it?

If white males make up the majority then they would not be at the bottom in general for the time being, meaning not at the bottom and not in the minority just far.

Do I think it was wrong to single out white males in the message, yes it was rather rude, but would you prefer to hear truth vs hidden info and agenda?
