It's not about race. Exactly.

There are a lot of people saying how this election is not about race.   Ok, so it isn't.  But, we Americans just elected a black man as president of our country.  The very fact that it ISN'T about race is what is monumental about that.

Despite the fact that this quote is all over the internet, I can't find an accurate original source, it was simply attributed to "a wise man"

"Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther King could walk. Martin Luther King walked so Barack Obama could run. Barack Obama ran so our children could fly.”
