I know I said that I wasn’t gonna talk about it….


I never thought I’d see the day. A BLACK MAN is running for president of the United States. Up to this point, he’s just been campaigning for the OPPROTUNITY to run. It is now official.

There are those who believe, that he’ll never get elected.

There are those who say that IF elected he will be assasinated before Michelle even has the chance to unpack the “good” dishes.

There are those who say he will concede or drop out of the race BEFORE the general election.

And there are those who feel that even if HE DOES win in November…that some how, the election will be stolen as it was in 2000.

But RIGHT NOW, none of that matters.

THIS is why Shirley Chisolm ran in 1972. So that 36 years later SOMEONE would have the chance. Black AND a woman. THE NERVE? RIght? We don’t have nerve like that anymore.


 Its why Jesse Jackson ran in 1984. Just as we were diving head first into the consequences of Regan-omics. Young, uncorrupt Jesse threw his hand in the pot and opened himself up to the world’s scrutinity. He hasn’t been viewed the same since, but THIS is why he did it.





Barack Obama in 2008 is why Al Sharpton ran for President in 2004. Never mind the fact that He’s NEVER won an elected office…ever. Its always been his goal to “change the debate, or to raise teh social justice question” Poor Al. But he did it with THIS in mind.

Barak is just a man. But he’s got 600 years of American history on his back right now. I will be in prayer for him. For his strength. For his guidance. For his family and his focus.
….Pray WITH me Cool World.
The next five months will be crucial.
Blog about it
Write about it
Talk about it.

…so that 600 years from now, regardless to what is written in the “HISTORY” books, the REAL story will be out there.
