Congratulations, Mr. Obama:
More than just, "the first black man President of the United States of America”, is in your hands the hopes of a better world. I belong to a generation that witnessed racial discrimination in his country. My generation saw the courage of Rosa Parks and the murder of Luther King and saw all the great battle for the civil rights led by Afro-American.
Today, the United States are engaged in huge conflicts in the world, that is, in a final analysis, a cultural, religious and racial discrimination in other countries.
I have absolute certainty that the United States have no "natural enemies", but people who are tired of living in misery determined by an economic policy that oppresses the poor for decades - as the African-Americans were oppressed before.
Because of this, because we know of the generosity of the people who suffered in itself, the injustice caused by pride and arrogance, is that humanity today agreed smiling, hopeful, with the certainty that the new president of the United States will promote justice and brotherhood among peoples.
Peace and Freedom,
Parobé,RS, Brazil, November 5, 2008
