Part of our evolution as a community means acknowledging the complex and often conflicting emotions that come with this historic milestone of having a black president. If there are 50 million black people, there are 50 million ways to look at Barack Obama. That said, I do wonder why Huey never felt compelled to go into exile when George W. Bush was stinking up the place. So I'm looking forward to hearing exactly why Huey is so angry about Hope & Change.

Still, I'm happy that we are a step closer to eliminating this ''house business'' in the black community. It's a sign that we're taking our seats at the grown-up table.
