for those of you who haven't heard obama's "A More Perfect Union" speech

Not just another election speech.

Seriously. No matter who you plan to vote for in this election, if you're voting in America and you care about racism at all, you really need to set aside thirty minutes and listen to this in its entirety, because these words will haunt our next president no matter who he or she is. Sound bites and newspaper quotes really do not do it justice. Not only is it spot on, it may not be much of an exaggeration to call it one of the great speeches of our era.

It's just a shame that most of America will have only heard it in sound bites and newspaper clippings.

Which I am helping to rectify.
