Don't rest on your laurels

Americans have spoken and voted and Barack Obama is our president-elect. Obama is a BIG FIRST. The first African-American/bi-racial man to assume office;it only took almost 150 +/- years for black men to achieve this political equality. But that does not mean that we should all pat ourselves on the back, and say we have achieved equality.
We will need more black men in the presidential pipeline, and women, and homosexuals, and Latinos, and Asian-Americans, and atheists and Jews and Muslims and Sikhs and Quakers and agnostics and . . .(fill-in-all the other religions and ethnic-Americans). . .

We have, in short, a LOT more work to do. . .
