NY Times pictures - nov 04 2008

Samira emailed me this NY Times post - mushtaq, kamila and myself had picked a random restaurant in the heart of black La to dine and usher in the new president - turned out we were in an historic place at a historic time - id figured we need to be with Obama's community whether he won or lost the night - most telling was that besides the reporters we were the only non black people in the entire neighbourhood, making merry and reveling with our fellow black brothers and sisters! realised for the first time how large the divide, how gaping the mistrust, how baseless the fear.
Leimert park here we come!
