I originally wrote this a few days ago, but after a little more thought and editing I’m finally ready to share.
Now before you close the browser because you are a hardcore Obama hater, understand a few things; I’m a Historian and I do not cater to political bias.
Now before you close your browser becuase you are a hardcore Obama supporter who does not feel I’m doing him justice, understand this, I do not believe in great man history. (I’m talking to you Reagan)

The election brought with it a horrific undertone, that looking back now, seemed virtually undetectable.
Majority leader Mitch McConnell would be the kick off to that very horrific undertone. He vowed to make our President a one term President.
I remember as a teenager in early 2009 hearing people say many things. I heard that President Obama would be a beacon of hope for people of color who wanted to be respected when it came to being a vital member of society. On the other hand I heard that Barry would be the worst President we ever had.
It was in that moment I began to understand that this was going to be a definitive moment in American history and the molding of our culture.
