“Restoration of decency, honesty, consistency, respect for others who disagree with us or don’t look like us and so many more.

“What President-Elect Joe Biden’s victory means to me is that democracy in America will be restored based on the Constitution of the United States.  All Americans will be treated equal regardless of their political party and affiliations, economic status, ethnicity and race, religious values, sex and sex affiliations.

“Americans will be protected against persecution based on terrorist attacks on people of color, especially the assassination on black men’s lives, immigration status, and viruses and diseases which plagued our country and have killed over 200,000 Americans.

“The will of the American people will be heard and adhered to. Americans will have opportunities to seek out better job opportunities, will have and maintain affordable housing, will have access to affordable health care and prescription medicines, will have choices of insurance and doctors.

“More specifically and importantly as an African American woman, this victory means not only that the slogan black lives matters; however this will be evidenced in action by obtaining top level leadership and decision-making for African Americans, particularly women in the White House, in politics, in 500 Fortune Companies, in the board room, and in career and job opportunities where we were not receiving equal pay for equal work!
“African Americans can just be.

We can just be unapologetically black and not be judged based on our skin colour, style of our hair and hair colour, our clothing choices, using our voices about our needs and wants.

“We can just be educated and have the resources available and provided to us to compete in any capacity across America.  We can just be Black Excellence.

“We can just be Black Intelligence.  We can just be Black Class.  We can just have Black Sass.  We can just be Black Magic using our Black Minds.  We can just be proud African Americans, black in America, and/or just be Americans!

“Due to our victory, we have the political and economic power of soon to be First Lady, Jill Biden as supporter. She is a life-long educator.  Ms. Biden will assist in the reorganization of schools across America and begin with adequately funding our public schools, valuing the worth of educators by demonstrating respect in terms of adequately paying educators, providing educators a voice in educational and political policies, protecting the rights of educator’s unions and job security.
“We can just be!”  We can breathe!”  “We matter!”, Boston said.
