Dr Carlous Caple on Obamas First 100 Days

Don't let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief shining moment that was known as Camelot! Not since the days of the Kennedy administration has America seen such presence, power, and promise. In his first 100 days, President Barack Obama has put any lingering doubts to rest regarding intelligence, ability, and character. From the viewpoint of the Black community, this is a reward for patience, and a return to legacy. From the viewpoint of the global community this is a paradigm shift of significant proportion.

The impact of Obama’s first 100 days has not only changed the scope of American politics and foreign relations, but it has also impacted greatly the sociological viewpoint on the Black community. President Barack and First Lady Michelle, both from humble backgrounds have demonstrated that the legacy of the Black community has never disappeared, but now is restored to its rightful place.

The context of change as a paradigm now means a return to a legacy not only founded in athletics and entertainments, but in education, law, medicine, religion, and entrepreneurship. Further, this paradigm restores the concept of the extended family as a unit, parenting, morals, values, standards, and character. Obama’s first 100 days has impacted a renewed Black pride and a consensus of no excuses.
