I've been alive for four presidencies and this man, his wife, his kids, his administration represented me. This family, no matter how much you want to deny it, represented all of us. This President ran for all of us. He didn't run for black people or white people. He didn't run for women or men. He didn't run for Christians or Muslims. He didn't run for straight or LGBTQ. He didn't run the country for none of them singularly because he ran for all of them. He faught for every single one of us in the face of racism, hate, and the most disrespected presidency in the US history. People who were supposed to help him made it their mission to make him fail. His supporters turned on him when he couldn't push things through because they didn't go out to vote in people who would make it possible for him to get those things done. He fought to have at least some type of health care even though it had so many flaws due to compromising with people who wanted it to fail (because they wanted to tarnish his legacy). So before you judge President Obama for his eight take a look at what he was up against. Don't let the history books get his story wrong. This family was scandal free besides some bad journalism trying to make teenage fun a huge scandal and smoking a taboo thing. It would've been awesome to have a woman or man (*cough, Bernie, cough, Sanders, cough* ) equally as great become your successor but thats not how things panned out. So now we will fight for justice honesty, and integrity where there is none. You made us feel safe and we took you for granted. So now all I have to say is thank you for everything. And one last time I sing, "My President is Black" Happy Birthday Barack Obama. #presidentobama#obamafarewell#barackobama#legacy#america#potus#flotus#thanksobama#idontcareifyoudontlikeit#weneedmorelove#theobamas#michelleobama
