Lord, it is a great day in Mississippi. I mean who’d ever thought it, a Black man becoming mayor of a town where the White folks are 56% of the population?
Yes sir, it done happened in Philadelphia, Mississippi, the town where the Klan murdered three young mens, one black and two white, in 1964. I read bout in the New York Times on Friday the 22.
Yes, the philosopher of common sense reads the New York Times. I aint no fool.
The philosopher of common sense think he sees progress in them race relations between Blacks and Whites in these United States. I don’t know if race done disappear or if it will ever disappear from our nation but I do know progress done been made.
What progress, Common Sense Philosopher, you ask?
Well, now a Black is President of these United States, somethin I would’ve dreamed of when I was growing up.
And a Black man is the mayor of a town in Mississippi where the majority is White. That means some White folks voted for him, don’t it?
Yes sir, the philosopher feels good bout these United States.
