Obamarama: Derrick for Secretary of Youth

February 28, 2008

A must-see video. For me, this is a great example of how to win an argument AND bring them over to your side…Bravo Derrick!

AND he’s self-reflexive, politically astute and a son of Brooklyn!!!!

Boy, you made your parents — and all of us from the black postcolonies who have worried that we have not done enough to pass on the radical democratic ideals of CLR James, Kwame Nkrumah, James Padmore, Claudia Jones etc. to our children — damn proud. Why? Because you, yes gum-chewing you, have been paying attention to how you came to be in history, and you spoke up and spoke truthfully when you were called.  Take back the mike, yes!
