I Just Want To Know...

Why it took Obama becoming President for Black Folk to want
to get up off their A**??
I understand that he is an inspiration, and I am happy
that he is in the White House just as much
as the next person. But even before then
I was still motivated on my own..
Right now I feel like ppl wanna change
because of who is now in office,
when they should have wanted something better
for themselves from the beginning..
Thats just me though..

Yea I see where you are coming from, but I have to honestly admit, I didn't believe ANYTHING was possible until Obama came along. I mean I didn't believe that if you work hard you reap the rewards of your hard work. I guess because I see my mom, people around me, working HARD everyday and still in a constant state of struggle. Obama's success really pushed me to believe that I can actually do ANYTHING.

I FEEL YOU!!! I'm hearing crazy stories about people finally marrying their baby's mothers because Obama was in office. For real? Seriously? Now you want to look for work because the President is black? Did he really have that much bearing on your decision to find gainful employment? Really?

I understand how he can be an inspiration (and he definitely is), but damn. Is Obama what it takes for you to want to do better? I want people to want better for themselves.

Girl, I'm sorry for the rant, but that irks the hell out of me. LOL.

i hear that mika! yea i definitely agree wit you on that. ppl should have already been motivated to get shit going for themselves and do something wit they lives. so wonder if Barack Obama didnt become president...does that mean everybody would still be sitting on they ass no giving a f***. hmm thats a good question. Smh.
