My Personal Letter to President Barack Obama

Reggie FullwoodDear President Obama,

First, let me thank you for being so awesome. You have been an inspiration to so many people around the world, especially African Americans.

Thank you for your passion, intelligence, commitment, aptitude and swagger. You are one the coolest brothers that I have ever seen – you, Samuel L. Jackson, John Shaft, Avon Barksdale and Nelson Mandela.
You are as cool as the other side of the pillow.

Not only are you my favorite President of all time, you are my favorite light-skinned guy of all time. Forget Tom Joyner, Terrance Howard and Steph Curry, you have single handedly brought light skinned back. Us dark skinned brothers had taken over, but you Sir were like Luke Skywalker in “Return of the Jedi” – you brought balance to the force.

So thank you Mr. Obama for not having sprayed-on orange skin and a really bad comb over.

Man, we really miss you. Hell, we missed you the day after the inauguration. Selfishly we wish you could have run for a third term (at least some of us), but we know that you were tired. You have had the unique ability of being an outstanding statesman while dealing with some of the biggest issues our country has ever faced.
Thanks for leading us out of the Great Recession and helping our country and economy rebound. You have been professional and committed despite some of the clowns in Congress that you have had to battle. And you have done all of this while being hip and cool at the same time.
As Denzel Washington said in the movie “Training Day,” “King Kong aint got nothing on you.”

Thank you Barrack, if I can call you Barrack, for not bashing the media for doing their job. It is not “fake news” when we have a President who can’t seem to tell the truth throughout an entire news conference.

And how can we not thank you for actually hiring well-qualified competent people to help you run the country. You know like actually hiring a Secretary of Education that has a college degree or has actually been inside of a public school.

I have to give you major props for being a good human being and not stereotyping people from difference races and backgrounds. Mr. Trump has been targeting Mexicans and Muslims, but the last I checked we haven’t had any Mexican terrorist, but we certainly have had numerous white extremist mass murderers.

By the way, Mr. Obama you are way too smart to ever think that we could make Mexico or anyone else pay for a stupid wall. It’s hard enough to make us Americans pay for our student loans.

How can I not thank you for being you without acknowledging your lovely bride. You married the best first lady ever and if she’s not the best she is at least in the top three. And I am not just saying this because of my crush on Michelle. I am saying it because she’s been transformative. Have you ever seen a first lady draw the types of crowds Mrs. Obama draws?

You married a real sister too. And you politically correct people can take this the wrong way if you want, but I am going to say it anyway. Michelle is a real black woman, who has inspired other women and young ladies to be lawyers, community activist and leaders of industry.

She is a super mother, advocate for children and as my grandma would say – sharp as a tack. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Obama for rising to fabulous beautiful young ladies. You are parent role models to us all, and we know that you are not perfect, but all of us parents need to encourage each other and share best practices.

Thank you Mr. Real President for not being a sexiest or bigot or an egomaniac. Not calling any names, but the guy who currently occupies the White House is as loony as Bugs Bunny.

I am not sure if my grandmother will ever admit it, but Mr. President I think that you have replaced me as her favorite grandson. Yes, you may not know it, but you are Ms. Ernestine’s favorite. That might be the only issue I have with you. In fact, she’s still waiting on you to come and pick up that sweet potato pie she baked for you last Thanksgiving. As I reminisce, I used to get those pies too.

Thank you Barack for the respect and statesmanship that you showed other world leaders. Thousands would gather to see you when you traveled the globe. I remember after being elected you went to Europe and drew a crowd of over 100,000 people eager to see and hear you.

Mr. President you are a rock star without trying to be a rock star.

I have to also thank you for your ability to play basketball. I can’t speak for George W or Bill Clinton, but you have to be the best basketball-playing President ever. Although Abe Lincoln was pretty tall, I am not sure if he could hoop. Wait – when was basketball invited again? Never mind – Mr. President you get my point.

Finally Mr. President, I must end my man crush letter byagain thanking you for the sacrifice and exceptional service. You and Michelle deserve to finally have some fun and actually relax. By the way, don’t get mad for this: Obama for President 2020.

Signing off from the British Virgin Islands with the Obamas (I wish), Reggie Fullwood
