  8. 8. Congratulations America for having elected Obama your next President. Mankind hopes all of us have better days on Earth! God bless us all!
  9. 9. E-mail I have cried a lot since I saw your celebration of Obama's victory at your school! And I am also proud of our job together. I would say to you that it is the most special moment in my professional life! Everything has been special to me: the usage of technology; ethnical problems regarding our audience. The comparison of the goals black people reached in the US and how black people here live. Our public system of education doesn't allow black people to go to college because public education is not that good; but let’s see if Obama's reference changes things here in Brazil! Anyway, I have been very happy at the same time! Tell your students not only the United States have lived a special moment in their lives but also the whole mankind with Obama's election!
  10. 10. SKYPE CHAT - 05 NOV 08  Brazil: i am very happy.  Lovejoy: why are you so happy  Brazil: due to Obama’s election. It is a victory for the  whole of mankind  Lovejoy: what did you think about the election  Brazil: i wonder when Brazil will be able to elect a Black president? Mankind has been used to seeing Americans are racist but you were able to elect a black president. Here in Brazil we have to work a lot to reach this point
  11. 11. SKYPE (cont) Brazil: Bahia has the biggest black population in Brazil. Salvador has the biggest black community in Brazil. Lovejoy: They do? Brazil: So it is very special to be with you because we have lots of things in common. Our black heritage has influenced the whole Brazil in the fields of arts, music, culture. Lovejoy: we do have a lot in common
  12. 12. SKYPE (cont) Brazil: but the problem we have here is related to a bad public education that doesn’t allow students to go to college. Black people are the ones to get the smallest salaries. It is terrible. Lovejoy: we have that problem here because a lot of student dropout too. Brazil: so you have to be proud of being Americans ok but you can dream and if you make the necessary effort you more easily go to where you want
