In honor of President Barack Obama‘s historical public support for marriage equality, Brooklyn-based actor Justin Brow plays “Obama Boy” in a video written by John Duarte, reports Politico.com.
The lyrics include the following:
Cuz I gotta a crush on Obama
I cannot wait for my soul mate
Barry you’re the finest candidate
I can’t wait to see you get hard on Romney in debate
Why don’t you pick up your phone cuz
I got a crush on Obama
I cannot wait for my soul mate.
Barry you’re the finest candidate.
Open, honest and out
That’s what we’re all about

Amber Lee Ettinger, who became famous playing ‘Obama Girl’ in 2008, has so far declined to support the president, but loves the ‘Obama Boy’ video:
“Pretty much I think it’s hilarious I’m flattered too! Lol I’ve been waiting for someone to do this and this guy did it :),” she said exclusively to Politico.com.

According to Brown, someone else loves it too:
“I’ve gotten confirmation that people in the Obama Campaign have seen the video and quote, ‘Are cracking up’,” he posted on Facebook.
We’re not sure how many other people will be laughing.
As previously reported by NewsOne, several pastors came out against the president at the time of his announcement and 63 percent of readers who responded to our NewsOne poll did not support his decision:
Bishop Harry Jackson, senior pastor of Hope Christian Church in MD, said “I think the president has been in this place for awhile and that he chose this time because he thought that it might shift the balance of power. The timing made me suspect the motives were political, coming out of the North Carolina victory for the traditional marriage groups and maybe have people kind of rally behind this pro same-sex marriage cause.”
Albert Mohler said, “Pres. Obama’s evolution ends. He publicly supports same-sex marriage (again). Even his friends knew his “evolving” position was dishonest. Why did Pres. Obama make his same-sex marriage statement now? Wash. Post. reports that 1 in 6 of his most generous fundraisers is openly gay.”
Pastor Jack Graham said, “At the source of the same sex marriage issue is the spiritual emptiness of a nation which has forgotten God and denied His Word. Let me appeal to all my pastor friends to clearly and unequivocally state your support of Biblical marriage. Don’t sit this one out.”
Bryant Wright, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, said, “A very sad day for America when the President comes out in support of same sex marriage. No surprise, but deeply troubling for our future!”

Rev. Al Sharpton, Re. Jesse Jackson, Will Smith, Jay-Z and many other notables agree with President Obama’s stance, so he is not without support.
Only time will tell, though, if the nation is ready to accept an ‘Obama Boy’ with the same openness that ‘Obama Girl’ was accepted in 2008.
