Why Obama?

The Big E has posted an excellent and timely article on why many bible-believing black folks plan to vote for Senator Obama. You should read the article and then the comment by one of his elders that follows it. The article explains the thinking of most African-Americans regarding their vote while the comment expresses the feeling behind the vote.

I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again. Despite what one might think of Senator Obama as a man, senator and presidential candidate I have to stress that within much of the black community this is ‘Incredible Hulk’ like big. And I don’t think I’m overstating the case in saying that many if not most black people 45 and under would consider this to be the single most important collective event in our lifetime.

That said I once again appeal for all believers to exercise care and wisdom concerning how we speak and the conclusions we draw. Take the time to read our brother’s article and the comment that follows. And then by God’s grace find a real (not virtual) person with which to discuss it.

Oh alright a chocolate chip cookie for the first one who can name the original ’Big E’.

Elvin Hayes! As a child I used to go to the Capital Centre with my family to watch him play for the Washington Bullets, along with Wes Unseld.

Thank you for the kind link! I will take a slice of Pound CAke instead of the cookie!
