One more inauguration Ping. Then I’m done.
You might remember this benediction by Reverend Joseph Lowery:
In response I give you a conversation I overheard on the train to work the morning after that.
Guy: So did you see this reverend, this priest? At the end?
Guy: He was saying stuff like “black won’t be held back,” “brown won’t be kept down”, “red man get ahead”.
Guy: Then at the end he said, “white must do what’s right.” And I thought, “Why did he have to put that slam in there?”
Guy: That’s what we have to look forward to for the next four years.
You have no idea how much I wanted to tell this guy to shut the hell up.
