I AM VERY HAPPY that my children will grow up to see Barack Obama as our President. I do think certain lines of thinking, where people imagine the arc of justice completed now that a black man is our President, go too far and too soon. But I know that from this day forward, children in the USA will grow up with a different idea of African Americans and our country, both.
And it pleases me very much to begin introducing President Elect Barack Obama to mija as such, and as soon as possible. Here is a video of me and Luna watching Obama’s very first press conference in the first phase of his newly elected role.
