When black will not be asked to get back,
When brown can stick around. When yella will be mella. When the red man can get ahead, man. And when white will embrace what is right.


Rev. Joseph Lowery


What a great day. The sun shone a little brighter. The sky was a little bluer. The gleam in our eyes was twinkling a little bigger.

And to think it starts all over again tomorrow. :)

4. Humor is powerful.
After hearing that, I was thinking that in order to be humorous one must have a clear overview. To see the irony. To see the hypocrisy. It requires intelligence.

Good stuff.

8. Colors. Not race.
Edited on Tue Jan-20-09 11:23 PM by Gregorian
That's something else I liked about it. There is only one race. But many colors.

Right on.


Hey, I just checked out the tune your sig is from. Cool. Have you seen this?

9. No, I haven't seen that
before, thanks for that, I just added it to my favorites, kinda corny but its got a good message.

Btw, Five Finger Death Punch, for any metal fans is a necessity....The Bleeding, the lyrics just grab me.

3. Limbaugh almost immediately lampooned that part of the speech
"Excuse me? Didn't we just swear in a black President, folks?"

Yes, of course, Rush. Now black and white are equal in all aspects of society, because we elected Obama. :eyes:


Great line by Lowery!

5. God, I LOVED that. Wiped the floor with that pompous, self-involved windbag
rick warren. Just brought me to tears. Smiling tears. Even chuckles through the tears. I just loved it! GREAT way to close out the event.
