Food For Thought

On April 25, 2008, a New York judge acquitted the New York City police who fired 50 shots at Sean Bell. They murdered him—just hours before his scheduled wedding. They severely wounded two of his friends. When asked about this verdict, Barack Obama replied: “The judge has made his ruling, and we are a nation of laws, so we respect the verdict that came down.”

With Barack Obama,
“We Shall Overcome”
has become
“We Shall Overlook.”
