With all of the things that are going on around us! Our economy, border control, the war in Iraq, we find America in turmoil on who to back. The Republicans as well as Sen. Clinton have done nothing to help in any of these areas but they sure lined their pockets for selfish gain! What frightens you America about having a black man as leader and Chief? Speak your mind with intelligence and respect please.

I think that america needs a wake up call and will suffer if mccain is elected. It doesn't scare me if he is elected because being black in america teaches you how to deal with hardships and be second class. If you cant sing, dance or perform puts you on a unfair playing field . look around what do most blacks own ,barbershops and hair salons, no serious worth wild infastructures, super markets, malls, hotels etc.I guess what im saying is wouldn't surprise me if white folks vote race instead of there best interest. white supremcy is more important to some than living well.

I am not scared to vote in a black president. i am scared to vote in another person who doesn't have a clue how to do their job. We are and have been in a crisis state. The economy is horrid and people are getting neglected. I think the fact that he would ask his wife about war issues shows that he has no clue about being president. They do have a war(military) counsil you know.

I'm a caucasian guy who is planning to vote for Obama. I all of my friends are, too. I think that McCain wants to start a few more wars, and from the sounds of it, he would like to start one with Russia. I have found no reason to believe that McCain is any less ignorant than George Bush. Hopefully the racist bigots on this forum can get past their own issues and consider the possibility that war isn't the best course to solving problems.

Why would America be afraid of electing a black president? Simple, America is afraid to do right and trust a person who really cares about people. Our country is a hide your head in the sand mentality while white America continue deciding what is right and wrong knowing they have proven they are wrong in allowing no accountability for leadership choices and deeds. A black man who is not all black but a little of both black and white and who knows what else is considered a danger to us because we are brainwashed to corruption. Experience has proven fatal for this country. Learning and listening to others who knows I feel have a better chance of saving us from complete destruction. There are white people not all white people who fear revenge. Yes, you have proved to be evil in nature some of you but we don't have time to dwell on that. We are trying to save a country from self-destruction. Forget the race, look at hope. We can not afford the minds of corrupted and greedy people to rule this country any longer. It is time for a serious makeover or it is over for us. Foreigners know this. Black and white people will be taking a backseat in this country soon anyway! Wake up!

The problem with the fact who Obama is and the reasons why they will not vote for him is really sad. There are a lot of people who voted for previous presidents, did not speak of who they were now all of a sudden people now get scared and conconcerned by letting their bias conscious rule their thinking. Also, the problem is america belong to all people not just one class of people so, what is your real problem? There are a lot of peole of color lost their livs defending america yet others think they are not worthy. It is a sad
day in america. I am voting for Obama because he
know the truth, what will help all americans, and
his seriousness to secure our country, and the fact he do not tell lies like McCain/Palin. All
classes of human kind is hurting, and Obama is not
thinking about himself or one class of people, he
thinks about all the people so stop tripping.
Some people like to continue dividing the country then impose their stupid beliefs on their children. Maybe people should be not so trust worthy towards the party who fouled up the economy and the war;Obama did not cause that so be as it may, don't judge a person by their color, vote for who make more sense and truely care for our country and who live in it. Your fears should have been directed at the republicans. I do think McCain is a neo-conservative, an elites, and love lobbyiest. If
Palin can noy say one thing about what McCain done
in 26 years (Katie) then why are you voting for
him?

Republicans voters, please do your research on
McCain;someone help him see the light, help him
understand what our future is about;for once, stand up and be counted. Your negative beliefs
were imposed on you which has clouded your thinking. If something happen to McCain (I hope not) and Palin become president we all will have
to pray. Her experience is what? Oh I get it, she
watched Russia from Alaska?

If it were Alan Keys,Colin Powell or Condi Rice we'd all be contempt,however we don't agree on policy not because he is black.What will happen if he loses ?the natives will be restless and probably riot.These idiots believe we vote on skin color alone when they are doing the same thing,at least more whites support Obama then blacks support Mc Cain.I can't stand this victimology Bs.you cry about equality and acceptance and constantly alienate yourselves by using terms such as "African -American" you put your race before country.I don't want a president that will further cuddling of the black race in this country.They will not vote republican because republicans will cut off some of their welfare funding and preach self-responsibility.This is poison to their ears,and that is why republicans are considered biggots in their eyes.

Hes not black, his mother is white, in the Jewish religion that makes him white, with a good tan gene. But he is afraid to make any kind of decision, even with this bailout thing, he won't open his mouth with any ideas. We don't need a wuss for president, you may think McCain has wrong views, but at least he's not afraid to state them.

I don't have a problem backing an African American president as long as his experience preceeds him. Obama has only been in the Senate for less than one term. The only way that he was elected in the first place was by default. The other guy on the ballot did not submit all of the correct requirements to be re-elected. On top of that, Obama has not voted or even shown up to vote on important issues on the Senate floor. If he doesn't even care enough to vote, why should I waste my vote on him? I am a democrat, but I feel that Obama lacks the experience or conviction to sway my vote his way.

Sad that this has to become a racism issue. I'm not voting for Obama because "we need change". Fill me in what changes he's talking about. Ha, ha...that's right you don't know either. Answer this question, are you voting for him because he's black? That's not too smart if that's the only reason.

I think what scares me more than a Black President is black communities simply voting for race rather than issues. I bet 75% of black voters couldn't tell you 3 things that Obama stands behind on National Issues.
Believe it or not, ask most black people and they don't think of him as black. Besides few black people even bother voting. Most I have spoken to say they just don't bother.

I guess you're going to judge all Republicans by President Bush. I have no problem with voting for a black if I agreed with his politics.I think he would be more of the same the democrats have given us for the past 40 years,that is Big government,more government,and programs that have failed.They own a big hunk of the problems with Fannie Mae & Freddie.The repubs.have tried to fix it 3 or 4 years ago,but the democrats in the senate apparently didn't see a problem,now they're the ones wanting to pass this humongous bill to bail them out of this mess.Nancy Polosi doesn't want a "witch hunt" to place blame.She might not like who she finds with their hands in the "cookie jar".

At least she has seen Russia for what they are.Failed Socialism.I don't think Obama has seen "Russia" yet,in fact I think he would probably have us try the same failed policies of Russia.
