"Why is everybody talking about Obama?"
Mum... "Because he is going to be president"
"What is so special about him?"
Mum... "Well... he has brown skin?"
"So what, what is special about that?"
Now I know that it is SO special, because of history and all, mindblowing actually, but, but wouldn't it be amazing if the colour of ones skin mattered so little to all of us as it does to my six year old?
