Change: Black and White
I remember two major global events that really brought happiness the moment they were announced. Egypt’s overthrowing to Mubarak, and Obama’s winning presidency the first time.
The phrase Yes We Can!! Was an empowerment that reached out as blood in veins? That moment of challenge to everything. Against all odds … a black becomes a president of the United States of America.
As disappointments ran along … higher in their dimensions probably because of the higher expectations. Mubarak is now free and his regime is prospering in different suits. Obama proved that it was him alone that could. He didn’t really share the globalism of the change his presence brought, except for very limited moments.
As we are watching what is taking place now in Ferguson, and this painful discrimination against black people. And yes, it brings me closer as a Palestinian to see my oppression in another color. Inside a country that is supposed to represent freedom and equality to the least among its people.
What is worse. among all…?
Is that this is taking place under a black president!!!!!!!!!
