Regardless of your political party affiliation, if you are black you had to feel a sense of pride in Barack Obama and his family during the Democratic National Convention in Denver. The event was first-class all the way, or at least the parts that were televised.
I know that pride is something that folks who are minorities understand. If you're not a minority that's not a put down at all, it's just something that you have to experience to know what I'm talking about.
How about Michelle Obama and their daughters? Her speech was on point. The little ones were too cute and not at all camera shy.
I'm looking forward to Obama becoming the next president of the United States not just my pride in his accomplishment as a black man but because he is the leader this nation needs.
And before I end this post, I must mention how great Beau Biden's introduction of his dad was. Biden's mom looked a little feisty herself. The Bidens make a great partnership with the Obamas. It's great to see diversity in Obama events as opposed to the McCain rallies. Now, don't get it twisted, McCain has been shown at several predominantly black events but his actual support among blacks is dismal.
