my president is (still) black

barack obama made history this week when he was re-elected as the president of the united states of america.  i could go on a political tirade and talk about my disdain for mainstream politics, america’s imperialist foreign policies, and the ongoing structural racism in this country, but i won’t.  i’ll take a moment to celebrate the iconography of a black family in the white house.  little black kids deserve to believe the glass ceiling can be shattered.
