10. We'll still have Obamacare, the cynically misnamed “Affordable Care Act”.

9. We'll probably have reductions in social security proposed and enacted by a Democrat, something no Republican could have initiated, that sets the stage for further reductions in benefit by either party.

8. We'll have solidly in place a new tradition of bailing out banksters and speculators, and lots more immunity from prosecution for corporate scofflaws.

7. When Obama leaves office, we'll still have gentrification as the only model of urban economic development.

6. The day Barack Obama leaves the White House we'll still have the world's biggest prison state, with three quarters of its inmates black and brown, the insane 40 years War On Drugs, and a black person murdered by police, private security or vigilantes every day or so.

5. We'll have US troops in more than thirty African countries enforcing Western land grabs and the corporate neoliberal order, and keeping Africa barefoot, sick, hungry and afraid, but well-armed. And we'll have an even larger overall military budget with more troops and more overseas bases than under George Bush.

4. When Obama leaves office, it will be legal and acceptable for US presidents to unilaterally murder with or without announcement of cause anybody, anyplace on the planet within the reach of US drones, special operators and mercenaries.

3. The Obama administration will have closed and privatized more public schools than at any time in US history.

2. We can cherish the memory of 8 years of watching that pretty brown family in that big White House, along with unprecedented black unemployment, declining real wages, and the most drastic shrinkage of black family wealth since we began tracking and comparing black and white wealth.

1. After 8 years of Barack Obama, black leadership and black America will have decisively lost and forgotten the habit, the inclination, even the example of standing against unjust and abusive power, and our former reputation around the world as a people of struggle.

And even worst!...the next people in office will be able to tell Black people; "Don't ask us for ish you didn't ask your own President for"....or, if we do ask, at best they can tell us the same thing that he did. "stop all your complaining and strap up your boots". That will be the double standard...us protesting and marching and screaming for some ish that we didn't scream and protest and march for when Obama was President"!! Imagine that!???....they'll laugh at our @sses!

We know what is coming in 2016, but where is our unity of focus to prepare for it? Can we collectively manifest enough collective economics, to help the millions who will be hurt in our community, when public schools, public housing, civil service jobs, city hospitals, city colleges, will be slashed?

Those who sell military equipment will be the ones benefitting at the expense of death and destruction in Africa. And we'll have an even larger overall military budget with more troops and more overseas bases than under George Bush.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
