ABC Week 7: My president was black

Obama's Nation

Hey folks, 

My girlfriend is allergic to almonds. The other day she shouted at me from across the kitchen!

"Hey did you notice that they started bolding the allergens in ingredient lists."

For someone that checks the ingredients on almost everything she eats, this is a very big deal. For the someone with the privilege of not having to care about ingredients, I didn't even recognize the change.

For the privileged majority it's often difficult to see the progress of minorities.  

I loved Ta-Nahisi Coates latest piece, "My President Was Black" for many reasons. Not least of which was the poignant reminder of the importance of Obama's inauguration and the progress it represents. If you want, reply with your thoughts. 

Happy Holidays, 

P.S. Does Sam Cooke ever get old
