If Obama wins, we will rapidly turn from a man winning the presidency against another, to the first black man elected US president. History making!
And all of us will be there as witness.
And the world will hopefully realize we American?s are just a bit more human that they maybe thought of us before.

Slavery, Lincoln, the civil war, finally a peace.
1960's civil rights, banning blacks from attending school, forced to sit at the back of a bus, forced to drink out of separate drinking fountains, lynching?s, finally a peace.
Assassinations, Lincoln, MLK, finally a peace.
KKK, bombings of black churches, killing of black children, finally a peace.

A page that will be turned, forever!

A past history of voilence, future children will find it hard to
grasp the reasoning.
A violent past that children will find it hard to understand.
All the killing, deaths, abuse, disrespect, hatred, finally a peace.

If Obama wins, we will be witness to the changing of American history, forever.
Never to dwell upon, but never to forget.
If Obama wins...

Obama losing would be a bigger story at this point, as something drastic would have to happen for him to lose it. But yes, it'll definitely be a historic moment and one we should all be proud of.

It will mean what we make it to mean.
Like after 9/11, it will be still another opportunity to unite as a country,
remembering our past, and looking ahead to the future.

If I remember, that is what American's are made of.
Why we are who we are.
Why every other nation wants to be us.
And why we call ourselves 'the greatest nation on earth".

But this is not guaranteed. We lost that opportunity after 9/11.
Leadership counts!

PS. We have to rise to the challenge, together.

Put the kool-aid down. If you have to make such a huge deal out of a non-100% white person being president, than maybe we havent come that far yet.

Obama is not black.

but seriously... are you high or something?

Yeah, I figured there were too many children on the forum to grasp an idea of hope.

Sounds romantic, but after a short time of contemplation, we need to think of him only as the new president - a person with a lot of potential. He needs to show us what he's got. We don't have time to screw around.

what hope? that electing some guy whose mom shacked up with someone from Africa is a magic pill to end racism and completely wipe the slate clean of America's civil rights history?

you're... I don't know. high? moonbeam? delusional? naive? some combination thereof?

Obama doesn't even really have a connection with the history of african american's struggle for civil rights in this country.

And how many of new black politicians today do? The black politicians that were involved in the civil rights movement are getting on in years and Barack is part of a new generation that grew up and benefited in the social climate after the civil rights movement. Fact is, this is a barometer of racial relations in the US. It doesn't matter if Barack is half black, not involved in the original civil rights movement, or raised in the Black community/environment. In the eyes of pure racism he is black. The fact that in fifty years we have gone from struggling to getting blacks registered to vote to where blacks can contend for the White House is something worth noting.

it's worth noting.

it's not worth:

And the world will hopefully realize we American?s are just a bit more human that they maybe thought of us before.***side note: fuck the world, look at how many black politicians hold power in non-african countries in the rest of the world. they've got no place to condemn us for not or praise us for electing Obama based on the color of his skin***

if anything, i will celebrate the death knell of the southern strategy.

the time will soon come that the advancement of progressive politics will be a political feasibility again. I also look foward to seeing what sort of political realignment comes out of this, i have a feeling there will be a strong one.

Good sentiment but you and I will both be long gone before the south has fully changed. I used to think that the intolerance would die with this generation but now think it will require several generations to atrophy. Actually, it would probably continue forever if it weren't for the dilution caused by migrating foreigners (yankees and westerners). There is still mighty strong racial hatred here.

Your typical lib "thinking" with your emotions and not even realizing your degree of psychotic involvement. Your caught-up with self congratulations for which there is no basis. You use Obama to play Jesus to the lepers in your head and thats how he suckers his psychotic followers. You would belong to the failed side of American history my friend and not the triumphant one.

I think some review of your reality is in order. You might be having fun, but I don't think you realize how poisonous your posts are.

The last paragraph says it all. Should be required reading for every American.
Lol why? The US isn't South Africa (except to libs and only in their heads) and Obama is a Marxist baby killer who favors enemies over the US, has juvenile ideas about the economy which he switches all the time to fit the political need, has a witch of a wife who quotes Che, wants gay lessons for 5 yr olds and special laws for cross dressers. Obama is a weirdo and normal people see it. Alas if people are so insecure about the economy that they will chose Barabbas even while his sleazy Marxist cronies are perpetrating massive fraud acros many states then they deserve what they get. If Obama gets elected due to a media hiding what he really is at a time of global collapse and rampant election fraud then its easy to see Obama is headed to be a shameful chapter - and I am someone who saw Bush as awful president and McCain as a boob. Obama is a sleaze.

Just curious (and won't be surprised if you are non-responsive):

- how old are you?

- are you male or female?

- do you have any living relatives or a spouse?

- are you incarcerated?
