Relax Black folks. The Trump victory does not mean the worst for us, unless you are prone to see the cup always half empty. In fact, I say Trump, who I did not vote for will help Blacks more than Obama; who by the way is my kind of President. And shame on all you Black people who voted for Hillary.

Black people did not appreciate President Barack Obama. Y’all expected him to do more for you just because the color of his skin matched yours. He did enough for me by simply being elected; twice. But no, Black folks wanted more. Now, this admitted surprise of an election could wake up all the Black Rip Van Winkles. We all; regardless of race or sex, are only one great idea away from being rich (monatary or spiritually) ourselves. And thus one great idea from being in control of our own future.

On the other hand, we can sit back and bitch for the next four years. Or worse, riot/vandalize in the streets, chanting, “Not my president, not my president” as reported.

I say, we challenge President Elect Trump by doing more for ourselves than he has promised to do for us, which should be enough to cause all brain blessed Blacks to get up off our butts.

And quite frankly, just looking at Donald Trump is all the reminder I need to get to work.
