Sen. Barack Obama’s speech from Philadelphia yesterday.? Impressively nuanced speech on race relations in America.? The gist: not as terrible as some would have you believe, but we’ve still got a long way to go.? For those that like to read, here is the full text of his speech.
Overall the reception to this speech has been well received.? It’s almost like people have been waiting for this type of nuanced discussion of race relations in America.? And yes, this only reconfirms my notion that Sen. Obama is seizing his moment in history.? It’s odd watching history play out before your eyes, so that in 20 or 30 years time I’ll be able to tell my children that I lived through this all.
