When we got married, we decided that we would live in Botswana. I knew I couldn't bear to see my black husband subjected to the racism that is endemic in America, nor let my brown children be told that they could only go so far.
I'm not naive enough to think that the racism will be wiped away with today's election results, but it does mean that the majority of Americans have laid down the gauntlet and said- No More. It does mean that all people of colour in America have a thin path cut out for them, a path that never existed before Obama. That is a huge thing.
A great man has entered centre stage and I for one am expecting great things.
(And I'm relieved I can finally stop telling people I was born in Armenia- that Armenian accent has been tough to maintain)
An African son is now taking up residence of the White House............Yaoza!!!
