Congrats to Barak Obama for winning Time’s Person of the Year, mainly for winning reelection, reigning in our financial crisis, and being the right president at the right time for our diverse country. We are not a politically sided blog as one of our mission elements is to actually encourage more political diversity and acceptance within the Black community. But we do see Obama as the biggest, most covered BlackNEK in US history. Why? He is a stellar representative of being an excellent father, learner, community supporter, positive citizen, and good provider. Also, with his education, leadership, confidence, and speaking skills, he is showing millions of young black men that you can be a powerful, desirable man without being a street thug or womanizer. Most importantly, as the first Black president of the United States, he has made the Black community have to rethink the idea that you can’t be successful within the system. At the end of the day, Obama’s impact on Black America will be more influential than any other figure.
