What really happened on January 20, 2009...

A very important thing happened on January 20, 2009. It happened so quietly, it was missed by everybody. It wasn't reported on any of the news channels. Even Fox missed it. So what happened?

Our victim card expired.

Just like white kids buy rap music and put the artist on the charts while we look for a free download, black people weren't the only one's to vote for Barak Obama, if we voted at all.

Our victim card expired.

Now we have to be responsible for ourselves, our children, our neighborhoods and our communities. We have to come to PTA and City Council Meetings. We have to save our money and learn how to invest it. We have to think about generations coming behind us and what legacy we are building.

We have to read the newspaper and know how to tell truth from falsehood, even when it's in print. We have to acknowledge a Higher Power than our appetites. We have to join the community and be counted as fully participating members.

Our victim card expired.
