The Audacity of Hope

Did you know that Senator Barack Obama recently became a millionaire? I didn’t.

So why would a public figure of Senator Obama's stature want to perpetuate a myth that hope for non-millionaires lies in audacity - instead of strong moral fiber, a good education, structure, and self-discipline?
Probably because it doesn’t sell books or the philosophy of the Democratic party.

perhaps you just resent the fact that a black man is getting rich?

you're not one of those uncomfortable-in-their skin black people who wants soooo badly to emulate the features of whiteness that you become a right wing goof ball? are you?
If so, that must suck.

My mamaw used to tell me that if you can't say something nice to (or about someone) better to say nothing.
I am sorry that i did not heed that advise before leaving this post.
sorry, i had no right to say what i said.
