One of the Lord’s mysterious wonders has appeared out of thin air: Obama has flipped the script and is now leading Hillary Clinton among the black electorate. Hot off the press, the Washington Post is now reporting the numbers of a Post-ABC News poll. The numbers are very telling. Obama leads Hillary 44 to 33 percent and I still can’t close my mouth. Either God’s hand is on the brotha or having his face on both Jet and Ebony covers is working like nobody’s business. The single post I did on the February EBONY cover with Senator and Mrs. Obama is the most popular post in the history of Skeptical Brotha, being viewed over 2,000 times in the space of a month.
The intensity of the curiosity about the Obama’s in the black community is growing and reaching critical mass. Every day people find my blog doing Obama searches and they search for both Michelle and Barack. People understand that the Obama phenomenon might have been some media generated whitefolks hype in the beginning, but it has turned into something else entirely different now. What that something else becomes is starting to look like a multi-racial movement in coalition with the key activists to make Obama President.
While it remains to be seen what his fundraising totals will be in relationship to Hillary, it is clear that this campaign ain’t no joke.
