We The People

We the people who elected you, selected, you, and know that God placed you at this time, in that White House for divine reasons, and no matter what they do, what they say, many people still love you and understand that you fight for them…

Remembering the time, remembering the election, we the people know how hard it was and the trials, and the abuse that you took, to keep the foot of racism off your neck as you began changing policies that benefited only the privilege and not all the people living in America…

You told them, you showed them that you are a representative of the people, for the people and things had to change and would change if you became elected…

Jim Crow descendants came after you, Willie lynch descendants came too, vowing to formulate a plan and make you a four year broken man…

You survived the lies, the open and silent disrespect of all those Tea Party members who some time get really upset and crave for the days of white sheets and burn crosses and nig...s knowing their place…

You survived the enemies within and the attacks of your character, of your family, of your birth, with dignity that made many people angry because you would not yield to their demands…

You make us proud as your stand your ground in the face of hostile crowds and people who would rather see the country bleed then let a black man lead them…

You stand like a flex rock in the presence of those who can’t hide their disdain of you and your policies…

We know what you have done, and we the people who are conscious in our thinking, clear in our vision, and tired of the same old, ancient racist attitudes of those who clamor for the OLD DAYS…

We stand with you and the change you seek for this four years and the next four years until your missions is completed and racism is finally defeated…

So let them keep sending in the clowns to oppose you, and keep attacking you on a daily basis, what God has ordained none can change…

People of God Stand with Our President, remind your friends, your family to get up and be counted...Find your voice, speak about those attacks that you know in your heart is laced with racism leading the way.

Let’s make them throw all that damn Tea back in the Sea…

We the people of conscious are not driven because of color, we are driven because Truth should never be forced to take a back seat because of Fear.

We stand with this President and any President who is willing to Fight for the Rights of All its Citizens and Everyone who comes to Our Shores...
