Derrick Ashong is voting for Obama!

Okay....I know that some of you don't know this brother (that's okay...I didn't either), but after seeing his response to a interviewer who was questioning (see railroading ) his decision to vote for Senator Obama, I definitely had to check this brother out. Plopped him into youtube, and bam! He has posted a LOT of things. This brother is ON POINT, and fully articulates many of the reasons why people have embraced Senator Obama as the candidate of change and have, for the first time in their lives, had "the audacity to hope." Enjoy!

I was so thrilled when I saw the first video - the nasty interviewer really tried his best to trip him up but he was so sharp and so well informed that he pretty much made a fool of the interviewer.

I was supposed to send the link to someone a week ago - thanks so much for posting this!!!

Yeah Jali...I really appreciated the fact that the brother was so well-informed and able to articulate his arguments that he, before the end of his interview, was able to almost turn the interviewer to his side. It does us well to be truly aware of the issues we espouse so that we are enabled to eloquently yet passionately defend them.

Funny how major news outlets never find someone like this to interview.

I'm really happy when I see a brother holding his own when an interviewer is clearly trying to paint him as just another black person voting for Obama because he's black too.
