Message from my friends in Brasil and more...

Any euphoria withstanding, we must admit as members of the African Diaspora that certain concepts of racial angst have been compromised and made bankrupt by Barack Obama's ascendancy to the presidency of the United States. Though I don't think racial prejudices will die a quick and certain death, I do believe our ancestors are smiling. For people such as myself, who live within a world of promoting and celebrating African Diaspora history and culture, we do not want anyone to compromise or bankrupt the realities of our Holocaust experience. I hope a part of this "new era" will be an honest look at the past, not ignoring and minimizing it.
