Black History Month
Well the race is on. This year we get an extra day, so once again events like the deposing of Haitian president (February 29, 2004), Jean-Bertrand Artistide can be acknowledged and the resistance to global imperialism renewed. It's so cool that Barack Obama is offering us an alternative choice. The timing seems to be better and he seems to be taken more seriously than our formidable sister, Shirley Chisholm. I can see her cheering him on!
Everyone needs to participate, even the doubting Thomases. Participate anyway. Our ancestors died so that we could, and elsewhere in the world, like Kenya and Congo, people are still dying for democracy.
