Recently on "The View" Whoopi Goldberg made a very important statement. One that perhaps many Africans in America would agree with. http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20238363,00.html Goldberg also made the frank admission that her mother's reaction when Whoopi asked if she ever thought she'd live to see an African-American president not only was surprising but threw Whoopi off balance for the rest of the night. "No," said Goldberg's mother. "I never thought this day would come in my lifetime." Analyzing that response, Goldberg said that, although she's always thought of herself as an American who lived in the land of opportunity, Obama's victory at last could make her feel like a true part of the country. "I could put my suitcase down, finally," she said. Can we finally put our suitcases down? Are we really Americans now? Are we really accepted as "Human beings" instead of degenerative animals? Understanding the generations of trauma and spiritual and mental pain Africans have endured in America, it seems likely for us to feel this way. But don't unpack your suitcase just yet. Wait. Listen. And read between the lines first. Now I understand not everyone is supposed to believe in all of these NWO conspiracies going around. And not everyone should. We don't all have that type of disserning spirit that can separate the fluff from the facts. Let's be clear here. Barack Obama managed to beat a White Woman and a disabled old White Man publicly and he didn't go to prison. Don't call us crazy for seeing the facts. Something more is brewing in this stew. Between the lines, the media already knew Obama was the winner perhaps days and weeks before the rest of the country. This was the most media driven election ever. No wonder CNN picked November the 4th to premiere their new hologram camera technology. Is this the change we can believe in? Someone once asked, "when will the future we read about as children come to past?" We are already living in that future, some of us just haven't realized it yet. Many of us feel it's time to sit our suitcases down, when perhaps it might be time to pick them up. Obama is our Mandela. Nothing more, nothing less. Advanced technology has secured the souls of human beings for another thousand years. We are too entranced in it not to let go. Closer to being half flesh half machine than before. Millions can't live without their cell phones, computers, and digital devices. Can't live without being connected to media, which has become the new ether and spiritual consciousness. Perhaps I'm slow or too advanced only to realize just recently that even Lucas' "Clone Wars" is about the wars between clones right here on Earth. We are all clones in case we haven't realized it yet. Humanoid clones- offspringed from different stock. See. Some of us haven't even realized what the future holds, because we haven't realized the future is already here. So while some people are waiting for when President Obama- the new Manchurian candidate introduces the Amero...others are seeing another game at play. Now what? What's next? We are indeed living in very interesting times. Optimists and Pessimists chime in. WHAT'S NEXT??
