I think it is something to make a big deal of. For many my age and younger, I can understand what you are saying. You were raised in a different
world. I am 31 years old. Discrimination had not been filtered out of our raise yet. I was not allowed to watch any shows except Cosby, that had a
black person on it. I could count the amount of black people in my school on one hand. When a colored person moved into town, everyone talked about
it. I was not a racist, neither was my sister. However, it was engrained into our parents.
The fact is, he is one of the first black men to be raised free, and take advantage of what freedom has to offer instead of taking it for granted. It
is a proud day not just for people of color, but for the entire country. I think it is a big deal. However, I do not think it should be made a big
deal for much longer.
