Happy Birthday President Barack Obama

By Jorge Rivas Aug 04, 2009

Dear Mr. President, Happy Birthday. We wish you the courage to speak openly about race. To not take back bold statements that you make about the daily racial profiling that Black and brown men face at the hands of the police. Oh, and we wish you the power to quit smoking. We know it ain’t easy. Happy Birthday! xoxo, RaceWire Official White House Photo by Pete Souza .
