Editorial: Barack Obama for President

La Prensa-San Diego, Posted: Jun 10, 2008

SAN DIEGO -- An editorial in the bilingual newspaper La Prensa-San Diego called Barack Obama's speech after clinching the Democratic Party nomination "thrilling, inspiring, and reminiscent of Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr." Editors write that the moment brought a sense of excitement and the knowledge that we have witnessed history with a hope for real change, not only for the country but for minorities in particular. The editorial calls the forthcoming nomination of Barack Obama a sign of hope for the Hispanic community, adding that "the day of a Hispanic becoming President is one step closer to reality." But before we get too excited over the prospect of Obama becoming president, editors warn, we need to remind ourselves that this is politics and that change will only occur when our community fully interjects itself into the process. This means volunteering, donating, becoming involved and voting.
