Thank You, Mr. President

[Content Note: War; racism; white privilege.]

Here is a thing I wrote about my evolving feelings about President Obama over eight years, and the ways he and his presidency challenged me and taught me about myself: "What President Obama taught me in preparation for the fight against Trump."

It's a long one; I'm not even going to excerpt it, because it was, truly, eight years in the making, and I wouldn't even know which part to snip. Just head on over and settle in. I hope you enjoy it.
