Barack Hussein Obama and the love of language and straight talk.

I love that Barack Obama spells out the history of slavery and violence on the black body and it’s being at the bottom of racial profiling. And that he mentions that misguided, horrific war on drugs…mass incarceration…

 

I love that he gave those examples about persons of colour being followed in a store; people locking their car doors and clutching their purses when a black fellow comes near.

And -oh beautiful day- I love that he uses long sentences, polysyllabic words and still ends up being clear and easy to follow.

I love his language. Barack Hussein Obama.
