Blacks In The White House and other race matters

Big Shout Out to President and First Lady Barack Obama!

Finally the White House is allowing black kids inside!
No you don't have to be the son or daughter of the maid or cook to get into the White House anymore. Black folks are actually seeing inside the White House, The People's House, after building it hundreds of years ago.

Check out the story of Meggan Thompson and others who never imagined walking into the White House, let alone getting a hug from the first lady. Read full story from StarTribune.

Two thousand tickets have been set aside for District of Columbia public schools. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)

AAPP: It's 2009, and finally someone noticed that black children in core neighborhoods of Washington, DC needed to be included. Wow! About time!
Now we should not forget that there are still major problems in the D.C. schools.

There are charges from conservative and liberal news outlets that
DC kids are being sold out by Obama and the Democrats.

Some are wondering why the Obama Education Sec. killed Vouchers in DC.

OK, it was not my plan to sour a great story about black kids in Washington, DC, but I have to wonder, why the New Education
Secretary had to balance off his visit to the black school by visiting the segregated Washington, DC Night Club scene (just look at the crowd) in the video. I guess it proves that segregation in Washington, DC still happens, no matter if we have a black President or not.

Yet, The photo op's were Great! Right?
