World History has conclusively proven over and over again that whenever a black man emerges whom masses of people are willing to follow and invest their faith and desire for major political change in that that particular brother is in very serious danger of not merely losing his "career" or "status" but his LIFE (just ask Dr. King, Medgar Evers, and Malcolm X for starters; also think long and hard about what actually eventually happened to W.E.B. DuBois, Paul Robeson, Stokely Carmichael, Fred Hampton, H. Rap Brown, Kenny Cockrel, Marcus Garvey, Patrice Lumumba, Kwame Nkrumah, Amilcar Cabral, and Nelson Mandela, etc. etc,).
What I personally will always NEVER FORGET is that FIVE major political assassinations took place in this country from 1963-1969 when I was between 12-19 years of age so I KNOW very well that their is a very real precedent for what I am saying about Obama.
Which is to say that what Obama has achieved thus far is a very serious and dangerous turning point for both him and us. It's now finally clear that he has a very legitimate chance to become the Democratic Party nominee IF the current trend in the primaries continue (and frankly we'll all know for sure if he can actually pull off the nomination by May 1 since by then most of the major primary races will be over for the DP). However, it's by no means a lock yet. Hillary can still overtake him by then IF Obama's momentum stalls or something negative emerges to make voters doubtful about his chances.
In the meantime, and in between time wish/pray that Obama can make it to the finish line with his soul, mind, and body intact. It's not gonna be easy in any event--not by a lonshot. This is still the "United Hates" of Hysteria (Land of the spree, Home of the Knave and eternal domain of the 3H Club--Hatred, Hubris, and Hypocrisy) no matter what the media says about so-called "Democracy" and how Obama's victory is a clear demonstration and example of this principle. However, we are all intelligent and experienced enough to know THAT IS BULLSHIT. Stay tuned...

We just won Iowa, and I'm about to head down to talk to everyone.
Democrats turned out in record numbers tonight, and independents and even some Republicans joined our party to stand together for change.
Thank you for everything you've done to make this possible.
