Lineage of love
A close look at yesterday's historical significance points to a less political and possibly more Odd Couple friendly topic.
Not only did we elect the first African American President of the United States…
But we elected a man whose parents were of a different color.
A man whose parents quite possibly endured stereotypes and discrimination because they chose a relationship which was out-of-the-ordinary.
And while Obama’s Presidency tears down racial boundaries in the political world, what significance, if any, could his election have on the world of relationships?
How resistant, or eager, are people to date someone of another race? How have these ideals changed and evolved in recent years, if at all?
Because while few can deny that Obama’s politics inspire the masses…
I can't help but wonder if it was his parents choice that truly ignited change.
