Thank You, Senator Ted Kennedy

Senator Ted Kennedy died of brain cancer yesterday at the age of 77. Because everything I do as a young woman of color is due in part to Ted Kennedy's fierce leadership in his 47 years as Senator, I can only thank him for all he has done for the United States. The man with every kind of privilege in the world worked for the oppressed every day of his life, and his legacy shall live on in every person he has inspired. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

And to keep everything light and funny here, here's the "I'm an Amendment to Be" video from The Simpsons. This was the first time I heard of Ted Kennedy. No one will say that you're gay no more, Ted.


Sorry about the volume thing. You have to raise it to 11.
