And you whitey's are clueless and lacking in sound mind. In order to get respect, you have to give it. And your racist, trailer park butt gets none from me, boy. He will win and I hope he tears down those roach infested trailers you and your kind thrive on. Just to set the record straight, his name is President Barrack Obama.

It is support of a party and platform of a person who happens to be black. I believe there are still black republicans who will support their party. I guess that makes you a different person, huh?

The same people voting for him will throw him under the bus if shyt doesn't go the voters' way. BTW, Im black. I really don't know who to vote for. Call me a Uncle Tom if you want. Obama is politician just like McCain. He just happens to be black. Both will promise us this and that. We will be voting for who will look good punching Russia in the grill. Otherwise, we need to pay more attention to who da h3ll we put in Congress. They're the ones that make the laws and the drug deals to get sh1t for your district, direct your tax dollars, etc. The President can want a whole bunch of stuff. He got to get it through Congress. Just my rant...

Truthfully, you never liked him if you base your decision on his political affiliation. I remember the same persons taking the same actions to support their party with a white candidate. Rid yourself of your racist ways.

Get it right...black people, by and large, are supporting a black DEMOCRAT!!! Don't get confused. Alan Keyes was running for president for 2000. He didn't get past McCain and Bush for the Repub nod. Black people were not jumping on Keyes' bandwagon. WHY? Because he was a Republican (and was/is probably viewed as a sell-out for being so) and black people have been voting Democrat for a min. It's not totally a race thing. Another instance. Rebub SC Gov David Beasley in 1998(?) pushed to get the Confed flag off the state house dome. Black people were silent. When Dem Gov Hodges got on board, all the black people talked about was getting the flag down. Black people (most) are about Democrats period. Condy Rice coulda been the VP for McCain, it woulda went nowhere with black people. Get where I'm at...

I'm pretty sure what I just read said "DON'T vote for him becasue he's Black,vote for him because of his policies" I would also urge people who are less educated on this presidential race than you(read sarcastically) not to vote AGAINST him just because he is Black!Just because Sean Hannity said it doesn't make it true!

Wow!!! How can some of you turn something as powerful as getting an actor and actress to tour states and urge young people to vote into a color thing? And I would hope that no one is voting for a candidate solely on his skin color; that's ignorant and absurd. In a positive note, I really admire them for coming here and touring "ALL" of our schools, white and black and encouraging them to vote. This is a vital election and our next president will make decisions that will make or break our country.

Black voters did not jump on the Obama bandwagon just because he was black. The early black support poll numbers were low for Obama, with much support going to Hillary. Obama earned their votes over time with speeches and him being looked at critically. I think it's funny to hear complaints about black support for Obama when so many white women are known (from polling) to have taken a liking to Sarah Palin "because she's one of us" within mere days of her selection out of nowhere, with no history of examination and comparison.

I worked on registering students at Hampton U today and almost all were already registered, previous efforts must have been mostly successful.

A bunch of losers call registering people to vote, a racist act.
They have no problem with the GOP trying to stop legal voters from voting.

Sen.Obama could be green and orange, he would still be better than what the phony Christian wing of the GOP is running
What a joke

Hey I'd vote for him if he could do that AND get rid of the nigthugs that plague our society. Get rid of all the trash, both black and white and I'll vote for him. He can't do it though so....no thanks, he won't get my vote.

Of course the black community is going to vote for Obama solely because he is black,(which is in itself a misconception because his mother is white so he is just as much white as he is black). But also there will be a huge turnout of white voters to vote against him because of his race so both sides are guilty of the same ignorance. My problem is with a university like HU bringing in actors who know nothing about politics or current events to get students to register only to vote for Obama. Why not get one of their own professors (political scientist maybe?)to educate the student body on the policies of both candidates and let the students decide? Answer:Obama would lose! Very irresponsible of HU...shame on you.

Barack comes from people like us, and always has our best interest at heart," he said.

What kind of people might that be? Sounds like a racist point of view to me.

No Methos, note he said "has our best interest at heart" which to the extent true is standard "rational self-interest" of a voting bloc. Of course they are also proud of Obama's background as an additional factor.

Based on your demands, you won't be voting for anyone. Try catching the next flight to Mars. Earth is not for you.

Are they making a stop at William and Mary also?
