    Barack seriously inspired me, way before he was elected by the good people of U.S.

    I live in UK – London and although it’s one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world,
    it’s inherently racist, as are many cities in the U.S.
    When I saw Barack step up it changed my outlook deeply.
    Racism will never go away, but when a Black Man stands for something true,
    no matter the race they are willing to follow.
    I don’t expect him to change the world, I just hope he inspires black minds to do better
    for themselves and their communities.
    Also, I feel he’s the man to cool down all the nonsense in the mid-east.
    I’m almost desensitised when watching villages and towns filled with innocent civilians
    being destroyed……. That ain’t right.

    I won’t go on, but the fact is I’m inspired by Mr Barrack Obama.

    Salute
