the pep who should really answer that 'Q' probly won't even come to this thread, and even if they do, they'll probly be speechless in changing their perspective.

but the most ardently racist black pep would like to have everyone believing that only blacks, and maybe a few other ethnicities placed him in the White House.

Some negative and some positive. How about giving him (Obama)a chance. It should not even matter about the color of his skin, he is a person, man and human just like the others who ran and won the election. Most people don't research or try to find out anything. Most people, especially the younger generation (mostly whites)don't know and/or understand how much this means to people of color. Most people don't get the meaning of slavery, segregation, civil rights, racism. I was born the same year that Obama was and I know exactly what it means to be at the bottom. I know just like he knows. So I (my own opinion) feel that everyone no matter what color/ethnicity you are give the man a chance. Even though the majority of votes came from whites and non hispanics (whatever that may mean)he is the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. I myself was not an Obama fan and I was not looking at the color of his skin. But my prayers go up for him and his family, because so many people are angry about the election. Which really doesn't make any since, because if his skin was the same as McCain, then what? At any rate we will never know what he can or can't do if we don't give him a chance, right? Ford, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, daddy Bush and son Bush along with many others before them got their chance.
Remember, "united we will stand, but divided we will fall". May God bless President Obama and his family as well as everyone on this earth no matter what color, sex or gender. Just pray and keep on praying, because with God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

You say you know how it feels to be on the bottom but Obama does not. Obama was born into a wealthy family. I think it is funny that 95% of all the black people that voted went for Obama. That was not an educated decision it was simply because he was black. I am a 21 year old white male born in a low income house and just because I am white I am not given the kind of help that Black America is given. I say this to all black people. Quite bitching about how your ancestors went through slavery. Times have changed and you have so many helping hands so get educated. It may sound like a stereotype but a high percent of blacks take advantage of welfare, do not try to get educated, are gang members. The best way to show your ancestors that you care about what they went through is by educating yourselves and not be the stereotypical black american.

Young man get educated yourself an stop speaking nonesense that you obviously know nothing about. It you were educated yourself you would check facts before speaking. The facts are:

1) Obama was not born into a wealthy family by no means. He maynot have lived in the project but he wasn't wealthy and even mentioned several times that his mother at one time was on public assistant. She later remarried and life became a little easier for her. Obama put himself through college on student loans just like the rest of us and it was actually after releasing his book that he was able to pay off his and Michelle student loans. He even talked about how his mother worked while putting herself through college which she eventually gained a PH.D before dieing. Michelle definetely wasn't rich, her family didn't have college degrees, her mother was a stay at home mom while her father worked for the city of Chicago. However both parents instilled hard work and encouraging their children to do well with grades and that's how they accomplished much. It was through scholarships and student loans they they went to college.

2) If you have been looking at stasitics lately, you would have seen that black women are becoming one of the most educated groups in Americia. Enrollement is at a all time high and I think with the election the same will be said of black men. Black men are enrolling in college but not as fast as black women but then again this hopefully this will change now.

3) As far as your comments about welefare I have to say this. I used to buy into this crap until I met and have friends who actually work for the division of welefare and social services. One of my friend is a high ranking official and both told me this. There are more whites now getting on the system than blacks. Yes there are blacks who are on the systems but you willnot imply that blacks are the only one's.

4)All blacks didn't vote for Obama because of his blackness. This is obviously another unedcuated assumtpion coming from you. Again before posting and uneducated statement please check the stastics. The majority of blacks have always voted democractic. Even blacks such as Condelezza Rice and Colin Powell were at one time democractic but converted to the Republician party. Collin Powell voted democractic this time even though he is a Republician. However, he started out being a democrat.

Comments made by you such as the "stereotypical black Americain" is what has caused so much divison is this country. Both blacks and whites are sick and tired of the division and has spoken that they want the division STOPPED. Young man, I would advise you to change your outlook quick because the old way of thinking is going into extinct and regardless of what you may have been taught by your parents or parent, you had better get a new outlook if you choose to be a part of the new generation.

Whites voted more for Obama than they had for any Democrat since Jimmy Carter. Blacks always vote overwhelmingly Democratic.

Other groups also historically have voted Democratic: Jews, Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, for example.

The difference in this election was not that blacks overwhelmingly voted Democratic, that is usual, but that such a high % of blacks voted! Usually black voter turnout is low, which has always puzzled some, given the long difficult struggle for voting rights.

Obama must be given credit regarding white voters, that he was able finally to make them see that voting Republican was not in their interests. For so long they'd fallen for the conservative propaganda, and voted for their own screwing. The excesses of the GW Administration contributed to this awakening, but we cannot ignore the role Obama himself played in this.

The Following is fact from several different sources. Every post thus far is nothing other than individuals posting the minimal information they gather from the press, friends, or family. None of it is properly researched. That being said, here are a few true facts. 66% of the Obama Vote was from White's, 19% was from Blacks, and the remaining was multi-cultural. Though the % for blacks looks low, this is the highest turnout in history. Furthermore, to fully understand what occurrences, and/or causes leading up to this election you would need to devote all of your time to researching the pre / post election data. What we all need to understand is nothing other than everything we do affects everything else, this go so far as to say, us breathing in America, does in fact affect the air in Russia. Each and every one of us is part of everything we touch, on the atomic level. Every time we touch each other, or something, atoms transfer from us to the object, and vice-versa. If all of us were truly educated (including myself) we would understand that our differences are only our own interests. Everything on this planet, in this solar system, in this galaxy, in this universe, and in this dimension, originally came from one atom. you are me, and I, you. Simply Put... Be Nice to everything, and everything will be Nice to you.

Let's say you're white and every President of the United States, ever, had been black. Then, a white guy happened to make it to the top two. How many whites to do think would vote for him? After writing what you did, CharlieChatBox, I'm sure you would.
Hint: think things through.

In the Democratic primaries Obama received between 85-90% of the Black vote over Hillary.

He told La Raza in a speech that he will give citizenship to the illegal immigrants. McCain didn't say that in his speech to La Raza, but his past actions shows that he would have also imo. I'm guessing that this will be done within two years.

I dont ever read these post and this is my first time on this website. So here it goes!

A few years ago I returned from a tour in Iraq and left the Army. After 5 years and six different countries this is what I have concluded.

America is no longer on a "national" scale for survival, we are now on a "global" scale of competition. Where countries compete with other countries to have the life most Americans abuse and do not appreciate (not all Americans).

So if you voted for Obama because of skin color then yes you are pathetic. Same goes if you voted against him because he is "colored".

The fact is my fellow Americans, we are not each others enemies. The real enemies are on the global stage and America will fail if we all continue to whine and moan about who gets what and who deserves what.

The only thing any of us deserve is to be born, after that thank god for what you have.

America is becoming weaker and weaker everyday. Until we can start doing things for the better good of society rather than for our greedy selfs we will lose in the end.

Sadly, we are heading down that path and it seems we will crash and burn before we get the real picture.

Exactly. But he also forgot how many white people switched parties so they wouldn't have to vote for him, simply because he is a black man. Black overwhelmingly voted for Obama ! Obama is in office, you would think they are used to it now lol !
