    Yeah Alex, I’m curious to see this also.

    This whole thing just inspired me , to feel like I could do better , or we as a people if you would like yo look at it this way. Yes, it’s a historic and amazing day for African Americans , but also for Americans it feels like the glass ceiling is shattered. That glass ceiling that I never knew what it stood for when I was young but I always looked in back of the history text books and wondered why were there no one that looked similar to me. I know some people could agree with me when your parents say to you “Hey you could be anything you want in the world” you believed it , but you knew in the back of your head you felt like it wouldn’t happen. Not only is the door open for African Americans in this high political position , but other minorities some fail to realize that it’s a win for everyone. When he won the election in the days following I use to wake up and be like “wow , my president is going to be black” , that was still pretty much amazing

    lol thats just a speck of what is going through my mind.

    I hope Obama has opened the eyes of fellow african americans and shown them that it is a good thing to work hard in school and make intelligent descisions in life more often. Too many times I see blacks with tons of potential not care at all what they do or how they act. I also hope that people dont think this gives them a “pass”. If anything, people will be MORE racist and MORE discriminating. This is why people should gradually, starting now, try to make progress in shattering those ugly stereotypes…

    yeah its pretty funny when you’re doing good in school your known as a lame , if your not ignorant your not cool is what people still believe. I definitely hopes this changes. We have to change some of our ways.

    It was a great place to be. The atmosphere couldn’t have been better. You had the whole world tuning in, that was the biggest thing for me. I’m happy to be an American but I’m most proud to be apart of the world as a whole. Despite what’s currently going on, the world actually stood still today.

    Besides his race, and opening doors for minorities, Barack has given has more than that. He has given us change, I know it sounds cliche but its true. He’s brought hope in many eyes and has done his job already for the American people. Before I felt as if the American dream was a joke, we were too uptight and realistic to have a simple thing called hope! Barack has come literally from the bottom to the top, giving young people like me the hope that it doesnt matter where you start it’s all about where you end.

    yes chichi , i agree with you I didn’t really believe it. I’m still in shock as I’m typing this , I wont hit you guys with a whole synopsis here,but I’m grateful, happy, amazed, shocked, appreciative, and so many other adjectives I cant think to phathom right now. I’m happy because I am Half black. and half white so I know the tugs and pulls of each side. I’m not black enough , then I’m not white enough it’s a whole complicated thing , but one thing I’m happy for is theres Unity in the nation right now. I feel it and wish for us to really make smart decisions in the future.

    OH YEAH I LOVE YOU GUYS BLOG !

    Yeh i completely agree with Anthony. Things just have to change. That’s one of our biggest problems. It should never be considered lame or nerdy to read a book or try to educate yourself. I never understood that, even when i was younger in middle school and high school. I see things changing now that Obama changed history. I think the biggest problem was that some young black people had no real role models that they could relate to aside from athletes and artists. It’s crazy how much people this one man is inspiring. I’m just happy to be apart of what i think is going to be the most important 4years in decades

    I think this is a sign to me and all my people out here who underachieving. Yeah, He won we all was proud but many of us went back to what we was doing before…(I’m guilty of this) It’s official now tho anything is possible

    Why I say this is a sign to me? Monday night I went to work did what I had to do came home slept. I slept all throught the speeches and woke up around the time of the parade. Shit still didn’t hit me just a while ago I was on hypebeast Jkissi posted a old ghostface track “all i got is you”….I thank you for that my nig…I remember that song but never paid attention…Got me emotional that was my life when I was younger food stamps,hand me downs, blowing ants out the sugar etc…..Shit I came a long way….But damn now I’m well off why stop here??…I been slacking lately worrying about shit I ain’t suppose to be worrying about….Time to get back on track….anything is possible obama proved that…

    The business loans suppose to be very useful for people, which would like to organize their career. By the way, it’s comfortable to get a auto loan.
