*FINALLY, WE CAN EXHALE..
Wow. We finally get to experience a positive piece of American history again. It’s about time.
I just wish some of the elders in my fam lived long enough to see a black man elected president.
I figured it would happen in my lifetime, but not this soon.
I asked older family members, and they thought they’d never live to see it.
The strips I did this week were assuming Obama would get in, just like what Garry Trudeau did with Doonesbury. I had only one editor ask,”What if he doesn’t win?”.
And what a joy it was seeing the likes of Jesse Jackson with tears in his eyes.
I coulda watched images of black folks crying all night long ( I also enjoy watching Extreme Home Makeover much more when they have black folks on it, cuz we faint and cry and scream like nobody else).
Bravo, America. We took a big step forward in restoring our reputation in the world.
