U.S. History Has Been Made On June 3, 2008...We Hope That It Will Truly Lead To Some Form of Change

In the 21st century, we should not have to be happy about Black/African-American Firsts anymore but seriously - regardless of how you may feel on each side of the political fence - this is a very important and wonderful occasion.
The thing my parent's and previous generations of Black People in America thought would never happen has...someone taken seriously of Color as President of this country.
There is a huge battle to go for Senator Obama with skirmishes from within his own Democratic Party (Sen. Hillary Clinton will not sit down and be classy about it, but that is so terribly not a surprise at this juncture) and the Republican Party of Senator McCain as I am typing this first round of political posts in the morning here on BlackRadioIsBack.com (including a bit of advice for the man to keep his dignity intact)...
We can only hope - and as voters of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds and ages must push, for the "Yes, We Can" attitude and grind for substantial positive change in this country and in the world at large from everyone running and make the slogan much more than that - have it be the start of a manifesto of a real movement (especially from our youth voters and new Voters of Color - let's not get played out now by ANYONE including Obama, since the power of the ballot is obviously there and scares the Status Quo).
The best and most powerful vote we advocate for is an educated vote - BlackRadioIsBack.com and the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast wants folks to remember that coming into November 2008, regardless of party affiliation ("major" parties, third parties, etc.).
Make sure that voice is heard and is loud, whatever direction you go in.
More to Come From Us Soon...Peace!
