I think I’ve made my thoughts on Barack Obama, his candidacy, and what it means to me and people with melanin abundantly clear already.
If not, check out these posts and catch up:
That being said, I’m not going to further rant on how geeked I was to see someone who looks like me be sworn in as President of the United States. However, I will say this: Shout out to all of the slim men in cyberspace. This is our year! Fall back, chub chubs and thinphobics, we taking over!
Moving on, as you know the entire Obama family loves them some Beyonce. (Proof: Here, here and here), so it was to be expected she would find a way to use her Creole Power to secure some airtime. Although some of you are like, “Damn, chick go away,” I think we all should be happy she took part in the festivities as she had some serious making up to do.
I’ll never forget the day Destiny’s Child performed at George Bush’s inauguration and told the audience, “Let me hear you say Bush.” I was hoping Bushwick Bill would magically fly on stage and dropkick her in the forehead for that. All is forgiven now, though. Not because she vehemently supported Barack Obama. That helps, but what really gets me is 1:27 in the video.
Say what you will about Barack, but Beyonce saying she wants to be smarter is change we can all believe in. That makes me forgive the Obama campaign for hitting my inbox up every other second on near crack head like levels. I’m doubling my financial contribution for the reelection campaign.
