Black in Obama’s America


Black in President Obama’s America.
Just because we have a Black president doesn’t mean the condition is going to improve over night.

It is still our obligation to improve our situation.

This thought was reaffirmed this morning on my commute to work on Los Angeles Metro.

A Black war veteran gets on bus wearing an Obama the 44th kangol style cap. And knowingly uses expired bus pass as if it wasn’t expired in order to not pass the 25 cent fee for vets to ride.

That my friends in the condition many of us are in today. While others are one pay check away from riding the metro with the veteran.

Sincerely

About artikleblak

Artikleblak is a panoramic color-consciousness of digital media connecting the African Diaspora throughout the world. This world is a massive environment and our images and stories and concerns are spread to sparingly throughout the planet and digital terra. People of color comprise 4/5th of the world's population. Yet we have to Google search and channel surf and scour the event calendars to find ourselves, whether it be a person, place or thing. We should nevermore let oceans, languages, religions, cultures or man-made boundaries partition us. Our humanity is to powerful to remain fragmented, lets make it ONE again. Sincere thanks, Artikleblak
