As admiral pip said on the Conversation:
"never thought I would see the day.. Fucking hell. It's about time the US did something that Americans living abroad can be proud of.. 8 years of suffering at least temporarily over.. You don't know how much self rightous crap I've had to listen to from rich Brazilians, australian backpackers and pompuos euro-trash over the last 8 years about how Racist America is... Even the MST people will cut me some slack now.. I know he's pretty middle of the road, but at least symbolically this is huge... Things have certainly changed since I wasn't allowed to practice track at Gordon Tech for wearing a Harold Washington button..."
