So Happy to See a Black President!

PBS Newshour posted a great, "feel-good" video. A 106 year-old African-American woman meets the President and first lady in the White House.

See for complete video:
106-year-old Virginia McLaurin met and danced with President Obama and First Lady Michelle at the White House earlier this week. In 2013, McLaurin was honored for her volunteer work in Washington DC and said it was her dream to meet the president. The White House released this video on Sunday.

Contrast that with this photo from 1925 when Virgina McLaurin was a teenager:

Airing dirty laundry, August 18, 1925
Which America would you prefer to live in?

I shouldn't have to ask such a question.
