For those who are skeptical of "change".
For those who believe that the term “change” was a political gimmick.
For those who are cautiously trying to level-set their expectations for January because “change won’t happen overnight”…
It's done. It has happened. Change did happen overnight. It happened on Tuesday night to be exact.
When 80% of this country spoke up and said that race is not an issue, “change” materialized.
To those skeptics, I dare you to tell the tears of pride that rolled down brown cheeks that "change" hasn’t occurred. Tell them to retreat back into eyes that saw segregation, because “change hasn’t happened yet”. Tell them to wait to see what the president elect is going to do once the hype dies down. You tell them.
On Tuesday, the perception that racism is a mainstream American ideology was obliterated, by a huge margin. No hanging chad controversies. Our voice was collective, it was loud and it was clear.
Change happened the moment my bi-racial children looked at the president elect and saw their skin color as the color of power and success.
Change happened when American flags hung over Kenyan trees.
Change happened when African Americans felt authentic pride in their country.
Change has happened. Change is sure to come.
Please pray for our President elect and our country.
