Presidential Love...

Thanks to LouBay225, I remembered I had something to say. This shouldn't take me long because I just wanted to get this out...

Two nights ago, I sat around with the majority of Black Twitter and watched the FLOTUS give her speech to open the DNC. Granted, I agreed with many of the things she spoke of: The American Dream, Struggling temporarily to reap the benefits, etc. Not surprisingly something stuck out to me and it had nothing to do with  Politics.

Power is an amazing thing people. It often blinds us into overexposing certain things. I view countless tweets from both male and females with their unrelenting love of Barack and Michelle. People envying their relationship, the model of a real wife, etc. I guess being a mild skeptic to the notion that they are what the perfect black relationship should be like. Keep this in mind, There has one been ONE single president. James Buchanan. The first lady is what binds the president office together. They are SUPPOSED to be a model of consistency and what the American Dream looks like. Its Michelle's job to be well spoken, glamorous, a model mother.

I said all that to say this. Let's continue to work on putting ourselves in the right positions. We wont all achieve the perfection that is viewed as the Prez and First Lady. but if we work hard enough we'll achieve the perfection thats meant for us...

Let me run tho. I have a football game to coach.

Progressing Daily, MCW.
