second night: relief
today I am feeling utterly relieved that the senator for Alabama won't be a pedophile. it felt like a Hanukkah miracle, yes it did.
thank you to the black community, and to black women particularly, for rocking the vote in numbers and for voting for the not-pedophile. may we all live to see the day when we didn't need anyone in particular to vote so that a pedophile won't take office. may we all live to see a day when the - white - people in power won't do their best to supress the black vote. and may we all live to see the day that Alabama elects a black senator!
