I’ve spoken to a bunch of respectable negroes who attended Obama’s inauguration. Every one of them told me how magical and special the events were.
The freezing cold, the crowds, the inflated prices.
I don’t get it. What did January 20th offer that November 4th didn’t?
Was it that important to see him sworn in in person?
Was it as an article on The Root stated, that the Inauguration was the “intellectual freaknik” (just quoting that makes me feel stupid)?
Now, I was at Grant Park on November 4th, so perhaps I am only saying this because I got my “I was there” fix.
Please help me understand.
