Macklemore “Stand Up” [Outtakes From October/November 2012 In-Book Story]

I think the Democratic National Convention hopefully helped spark some fuel for the youth. I think people are used to seeing things happen really quickly. It’s very difficult for moves to be made, such as universal healthcare for all Americans citizens. That’s the one thing [Obama] promised and really wanted to follow through on, and that hasn’t happened. The economy is still in a recession. Yeah, I think the idea having Barack Obama in the White House, as the first Black President of the United States, was extremely exciting for our generation. In the last four years, I think it’s easy to become a little bit disenfranchised when he’s already in office and this is the re-election. It’s not quite the same momentum it was four years ago.
