If The Dream Is Fullfilled What's Next

Barack Obama is poised to be the first African American President of the United States if the national polling is indeed correct. So what will happen tomorrow if this is indeed the case.

Will poverty all of a sudden cease to exist? Will our inner city schools suddenly be safe and secure for our children. Will drugs cease to exist in our neighborhoods? Will most black fathers begin to take responsibility for their children?

Well we know that the answer to the above questions is no, but perhaps if Obama is elected, although he will be the President of all the people, he will take a hard look at the issues that specifically plague the black community at at least show an interest in really making "change" as he has so eloquently professed. Only time will tell.
