Robert Kennedy must have been a psychic because in 1968 he said the following:

“Things are moving so fast in race relations a Negro could be president in 40 years. There’s no question about it, in the next 40 years a Negro can achieve the same position that my brother has. Prejudice exists and probably will continue to, but we have tried to make progress and we are making progress. We are not going to accept the status quo.”

And here we are, 2008, no more or no less than 40 years later, and we have elected our first Black president – Barack Obama! It’s been 3 days, and we here at Gossip On This are still in awe. These 74 days will not move quickly enough for us!
