Picture of Obama Family at Democratic Convention tonight from Yahoo! News/AP

What's good everyone,

Just finished watching American History in the making, flipping between C-Span, PBS and MSNBC along with numerous instant messages from friends and family. Now I am typing this while talking to Mama Fusion on the phone about what went down.

Senator Barack Obama has officially accepted the Democratic Party's nomination to run as President of the United States - the first Black American who has gone this far in such as race with one of the major political parties of this country. Without question, that deserves congrats and props.

One of the first things I can say is Senator Obama did hold his own during the speech and truly made things happen in breaking down the "Change" theme of his campaign for mainstream American folks.

Whatever political party you belong to, you would have to be a serious hater to say that the man can't rock a platform and talk that talk (whether you believe the oratory or not, is on you - one of the wonderful things of what a democracy is supposed to be about).

There is no way in icey cold Hell (I like warm weather, so Hell for me is cold) that Republican Party nominee Senator John McCain is even going to be able to top that aspect of the political race.

Secondly, after watching this speech am I the only one who feels that it is about damned TIME that Barack let loose and went after folks talking smack about him?!?

For real, after a year of being pretty laid back and silent, wouldn't you be ready to let loose and rip a new body part into someone? That was probably one of the most professional "F*** y'all" moments I've seen in my life and I'm sure that Obama's speech writers (or him) were smiling HARD when some of those lines were put up in there.

BWHAHAHA at the professional and expertly executed verbal smackdowns in the above videos on the Bush Administration and McCain...someone at Fox News is blowing as gasket while I'm typing this, I'm sure

On a deeper level, it shows that the bro has gotten (if did not already have) some backbone to deal with the other side.

Now as voters and citizens, we can acknowledge that history as been made and feel cool about that.

Now, it's time to follow through to the next step.

Whoever gets in voted into/placed in office as President of the United States - we as individuals and the community at large have to uphold our responsibility to make all politicians from the top down accountable for what they say, what we do and to enact what we want to make things proper, period.

Like we always advocate at BlackRadioIsBack.com and the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast, make your vote an educated vote when you exercise that right. Democrat, Republican or any of the Independent/Third Political parties - all votes count when you know what you're standing behind.

And also, make sure your vote counts on a numerical level in this country any way you possibly can - remember the mess of 2000 & 2004 which left us in the bugged out conditions we have today with 8 years of G.W. Bush on the homefront and beyond.

Well, going to continue packing for this vacation for the next few days...y'all have a good weekend!

Raphael Saadiq is dropping some more heat on folks who love quality Soul Music with a new album dropping September 16, 2008, The Way I See It (on Columbia Records).

He's been doing this thing with Soul and R&B Music as a writer, singer and producer since the late 1980s with the group Tony! Toni! Toné!, his solo ventures (the Ray Ray album of his is a criminally slept gem on due to the distribution on the label at the time - I think the only other thing Pookie Entertainment released was an independent Truth Hurts album after that sis got the shaft from Aftermath Records) and other group projects like Lucy Pearl.

I've been a fan of dude for a long while and so far, if this is the direction of the album, I don't think folks are going to be disappointed when this drops. Looks worth spending my loot to support.

What do y'all think?

What's good family,

Here is the latest video and single from Talib Kweli's 2007 Eardrum album, "The Perfect Beat".

It's a pretty cool song and video and the album to me as a solo project was the best project that Talib has put out so far, especially with the live performance footage.

What do y'all think?
