This could be the most racist thing I've seen in a while. If we (whites, blacks, hispanincs, asians or whatever) are all equal, they why are we counting? WHATS THE DIFFRENCE???????
It makes no sense.

Another note, just becasue it keeps annoying me, Why isn't Obama a new white president? He is just as much of caucasian descent as African???? If race doesn't matter, then why do we have to label him as black? He is just a guy with a caucasian mother and an african father, so what????
The liberals that keep calling for equality should to start acting like they belive it. Be excited Obama got elected becasue he was the best qualified, not because of his black father.
