Response to piechartking (Original post)

1. To be honest, I give a shit.

When I was in elementary school, the teachers used to talk about Abraham Lincoln being born in a log cabin and they'd say it proved anyone can grow up to be President. They were lying, but we were young and it sounded like a worthwhile ideal. To our sorrow we learned that only rich white men could become President.

Barack Hussein Obama broke that rule and moved us closer to that ideal. It matters. When you see photos of President Obama meeting young black kids, you can see in their expressions it matters.
