Obama also breaks an old racial barrier

info@islandpacket.comMay 20, 2013 

I want to remind everyone that President Barack Obama broke the glass ceiling much in the same way Jackie Robinson did in baseball years ago. (I am sure you all went to see and enjoyed "42.")

To those who have a difficult time accepting that fact today, as they did back then, I just want to say: Relax, as there is no going back.
