Obama & Race

Hey
Don't know whether you guys have already seen this, but was re-watching today and thought I'd share. I genuinely believe that this is one of the most intelligent political speeches that I have heard ...
(and I apologise, cause it is kinda long)

happy he won tho. smacked that bladdy rictus clinton upside the head, onetime.

he hasn't actually won yet. silly woman hasn't admitted defeat yet. the question is now whether she'll either (1) try to insist that she actually won more of the popular vote, or (2) manipulate him into giving her the VP spot. considering she got 18 million votes, she still wields a lot of power... Atmosphere kind of tense right now. Its the anniversary (or round about now) of both Martin Luther King Jnr's I have a Dream speech, and JFK's assassination. Its kind of creepy the way that everyone's bringing that up right now. The civil rights movement in the states has a bit of a record with assassinations....
