I just wanted to post this video that really touched me. It shows a young woman, Sandy Booker, who was first filmed 8 years ago when Obama won the election. She was shown across news networks for her ecstatic reaction and so Channel  4 news (UK news network) tracked her down to see how she feels he did.

  1. Wow, and that’s just simply putting it after watching that video. It really shows how grim our country is and pains me to see people speak about issues like the ones we have going on in america with such sadness and defeat in their eyes.

    This definitely proves anyone wrong who believes that because Obama became president that we are now in a post-racial society. Of course it is progress, but there is so so so much more that needs to be done.

    It’s always disheartening to see how little things have changed over the years. It’s especially heartbreaking to hear from a young black woman that she feel Obama didn’t do what he needed to in order to protect her and her community more. The need for change is still just as strong (if not more strong) as it was before Obama was elected.
