Barack is Black Folks 2.0.

Poi basta con Obama, lo giuro, ma il "dap" è irresistibile.

(...) "When I saw them give each other dap, I was like 'Hell yeah!' "

Dap, fist pound, whatever you want to call it, it's something Americans are not used to seeing on the national political stage.

"It thrilled a lot of black folks," said author and commentator Ta-Nehisi Coates, who blogs at Why? Because it's the kind of gesture that, while commonplace among African Americans, was generally stifled by earlier generations of blacks working their way into the corporate or political worlds for fears "about looking too black," he said.

But Obama "is past that. ... He wears his cultural blackness all over the place. ... It's liberating to be able to run for president as a black man. ... Barack is like Black Folks 2.0."
