Barrack Obama, the president of the United States, has created a furor for politics unlike anything this country has seen in decades. This Democrat has crossed party lines and attracted younger people and African-Americans to the political world in a way that no one before him has ever done. He is the first African-American to hold the office of President and symbolizes real change and a new era for the people of the United States.
Because Obama has achieved what, not long ago, many thought was impossible. He has truly become a hero in today’s culture. Particularly for African Americans, he represents civil rights in a significant way and belongs in the same category as civil rights icons such as Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. People are proud to wear the image of Barack Obama on a T-shirt because he is a living legend and symbol of hope for the future.
The 44th president of the U.S. is forging ahead with true change during a very difficult economic environment. Despite coming to power during one of the worst recessions in history, Obama has inspired a nation of people that change has arrived and the country will be better for it. Many of his policies are stirring controversy and strong sentiment, as he takes actions that administrations before him never did.
Those who choose to wear Obama T-shirts do so because of what he represents. They have hope for the future because of him. They are confident in his abilities to change the things they perceive as wrong with our great democracy. They are proud of the fact that their country is changing already simply because he has come to power. Many of African-Americans that wear a T-shirt with his image do so because they relate to him. He is one of them and they are proud of his accomplishments and their shared heritage. Caucasians who wear Obama T-shirts relate to him also, but more because he symbolizes progress than because of color.
Despite the support and excitement for our new president, there are still anti-Obama T-shirts that can be seen being worn by those who have strong sentiments that Obama was not the best choice for president. Many shirts make jokes and negative comments about the president, while others are more symbolic using the Obama change logo or other images.
Whether or not you are a proud Obama fan, you can have a custom-made shirt printed to show exactly how you feel. You can choose from any of the many Obama designs that are out there or you can create one of your own. It can be as simple as a word or two or can be a lengthy text about the man. You can even put an image of your own creation on an Obama tee.
