“Having a Black man in office has changed my views on certain things in this country. I wouldn’t say that day-to-day my life is significantly different. I still feel like society has a certain perception of Black men, although I think it has certainly changed with President Obama. I think what we need to do collectively is work hard to improve our family unit. For me, as a Black man I want to continue to see barriers being broken. For example, ten years from now I hope it will be no surprise to see another Black man run the country."
