In this country, a black man still can't catch a break
Today's news from the Onion. Thanks to my friend and fellow pastor Paul Warren for keeping me in the news loop on this.
WASHINGTON—African-American man Barack Obama, 47, was given the least-desirable
job in the entire country Tuesday when he was elected president of the United
States of America.
And . . .
The job comes with such intense scrutiny and so certain a guarantee of failure
that only one other person even bothered applying for it. Said scholar and
activist Mark L. Denton, "It just goes to show you that, in this country, a
black man still can't catch a break."
