The Good Boy Says…

Bigotry in ‘boken

While walking to the ferry with my wife yesterday morning, we passed a white man wearing an obviously homemade t-shirt with the words “Hang Obama” written in black marker.  It instantly made my blood boil and my heart sink.

How is it possible, in 2008 and directly across the river from Manhattan, that there are still people who feel this way?  Who feel it’s appropriate to wear clothing with HATEFUL messages on them?  How can we, as a country, STILL be here?  How can there still be people walking the streets with such disregard for other human beings?

It made me truly sad, but all the more determined to do everything in my power to help Barack Obama become the next President of the United States.

You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.
