Obama was the fifth youngest and least experienced candidate ever elected to that office. Kennedy served nearly fifteen years in Congress and Clinton served as a Governor for nearly fifteen years. It is not racist to recognize that Obama didn't even complete one term in the Senate and basically had no over experience.

Reporter: Why have you ruled that out - running nationally?

Obama: I am a firm believer is knowing what you’re doing when you apply for a job. And, I think that if I were to seriously consider running on a national ticket, I would essentially have to start now, before having served a day in the senate. Now there are some people who are comfortable doing that. I’m not one of those people.

HOW COME THE WHITE MAN DID NOT PUT THE African American ON A RESERVATION LIKE THE INDIANS WHO WERE
TREATED WORSE THAN THE AFRICAN AMERICANS?????

Native Americans killed in service for the United States and killed defending their Indian country is listed below in rough estimated numbers. A likely total of 100,000-500,000 Native Americans in the U.S. have died since 1776. The high end would be around a million. Native Americans are the have the highest mortality rate of any U.S. minority because of U.S. action and policy.
Indians Conflicts & Removals 1776-1973
(1973) Wounded Knee II - 2
(1890) Wounded Knee - 178
(1864) Sand Creek Massacre - 200
(1862) Dakota War of 1862 - 38 prisoners executed
(1876) Battle of Little Big Horn - 136 (high estimate)
(1838) Cherokee Removal - 4,000
(1817-58) Seminole Wars I,II, & III - 1475 (likely high as 10,000)
(1831) Choctaw Removal - 2,500
(1812) Red Stick War of the Muscogee or Creek- 3,000
(1791) Battle of the Wabash - 21
(1830) Indian Removal Act

[Original answer truncated as it contained no useful data]

Estimates:
Two studies have been conducted that attempt to number the natives killed by the United States. The first of these was sponsored by the United States government, and while official does not stand up to scrutiny and is therefore discounted (generally); this estimate shows between 1 million to 4 million killed. The second study was not sponsored by the US Government but was done from independent researchers. This study estimated populations and population reductions using later census data. Two figures are given, both low and high, at: between 10 million and 114 million Indians as a direct result of US actions. Please note that Nazi Holocaust estimates are between 6 and 11 million; thereby making the Nazi Holocaust the 2nd largest mass murder of a class of people in history.

Between 1820 and 1845 tens of thousands of Choctaw, Cherokee, Chicksaw, Creek and Seminole were chased away from their lands in the southeastern US and forced to walk to the west, beyond Mississippi, to the lands that now make Oklahoma, located at hundreds of kilometers from their homes. Many died because of the tough winter. This march was recalled as the Path of the Tears.

In 1876, lieutenant Custer "Long Hair" thought he could defeat without problems in Montana near the river Little Bighorn the about 1,000 Sioux and Cheyenne warriors with his 650 soldiers. But he made a big counting error, as he faced in fact the largest group of Amerindians which had ever united forces: 3,000. Custer split his cavalry regiment into three and without waiting help from the other two groups he attacked with his 225 soldier the Indians led by Sitting Bull, Gall, and Crazy Horse. The Indians killed Custer, into a shirt victory for the Indians, and a bitter defeat for the American Army. Later, Sitting Bull surrendered for receiving forgiveness.

Instead, he was imprisoned for a time at the Fort Randall, in Dakota. Later, he appeared in the show "Buffalo Bill's Wild West", a shadow of the past. In 1890, he was shot by a Sioux police patrol sent to arrest him.

Also, in 1890, the last Indian resistance was defeated at the massacre of Wounded Knee in the Great Plains, seen as a revenge for Little Bighorn. About 320 fugitive Sioux men, women and children were killed by the federal troops armed with Hotchkiss guns with rapid shot.

Today, Indians experience acculturation and assimilation. Most languages are already extinct or disappearing. Boarding schools contributed to this, as speaking Native languages was forbidden till a few decades ago there. Only 10 persons still speak Karok language of California. In January 1996, Red Thunder Cloud (Carlos Westez), the last speaker of Catawba died at the age of 76, while he could not speak the language with anybody for years.

Today, in US there are 29 colleges for Amerindians, with 16,000 students. At the University "Sinte Gliska", Lakota language is an obligatory matter.

50-85 % of the Native Americans are unemployed, and they have the lowest life hope compared with other ethnic groups in US; they also have the highest rates of diabetes, TBC and alcoholism, connected to cirrhosis, deadly accidents, suicide and crime.

Why do white people get all the blame for slavery when it was BLACK people who sold the blacks to the whites?!?
why are white people made to constantly feel guilty about slavery which happened centuries ago...when it was rich BLACK slave owners who initially SOLD blacks to whites!

other black people took money off whites and sold them slaves...should these rich black ancestors be held accountable too for initially selling the slaves over?!

isnt the blame 50/50 on both sides of the races?!

slavery still exists in black countries today and no-one says anything because of political-correctness!!

Obama came from the core of Chicago corruption.
Obama ran unopposed in the 1998 primary election.
Obama ran unopposed in the 2002 primary election.

In the November 2002 general election, his GOP opponent, Jack Ryan, withdrew after his personal custody records were opened and published in the newspaper. Alan Keyes, Republican, took Ryan's place.

Keyes refused to congratulate Obama and explained it was meant to make a statement against "extending false congratulations to the triumph of what we have declared to be across the line."

Said Keyes, "I'm supposed to make a call that represents the congratulations toward the triumph of that which I believe ultimately stands for...a culture evil enough to destroy the very soul and heart of my country? I can't do this. And I will not make a false gesture."

The wrong black guy won.
