Alvin Ailey

This is a podcast for my computer class. It's about Alvin Ailey and his dance theater. I plan to join them when I get older. Alvin Ailey was an African American dancer. You've probably heard of one of his pieces called Revelations, that's my favorite one. Listen to it PLZ!!! :-D

This cartoon is so funny. I chose it first because Obama was in it, and he is beautiful. I also chose it because it is sooooo true. November 4th, 2008 marked the first day when blacks actually started being treated equally. When the framers of the constitution wrote that in the constitution, it didnt really include African Americans but now that we have the first African American president that we know for a fact is African American, we have equal rights. Before, we were all slaves, under the control of the white man. We couldn't even vote, let alone be a senator, but Brack Obama was a senator and now, he's president. Look at Colin Powell and Al Sharpton. We've come so far and we still have so far to go. Hopefully, other people will start to realize it also and start acting and treating us equally too. Racism will probably never die, but it should start to go down. People will have to except it, its life. We need this change. Here is an article that backs up my opinion even more.
