Chronicle Says Something Dumb

I know that's not a surprise. Yet, I was especially surprised by this comment. Today's front page of the Houston chronicle website has a picture of a child with the heading;

'Yes They Can To'
"Thanks to Barack Obama's victory, Houston children like 10-year-old Taiya Youngs say now there's nothing stopping them from reaching their goals. Watch as they share their dreams."

Questions. Who told this child that before last night she couldn't dream and be anything she wanted? What was stopping her before? Is the chronicle trying to say that after last night racism is no longer a problem? Does this mean the race victim mentality is dead?

We can only pray it is. That crying wolf thing is frickin old.
