I watch the Democratic nominations with much interest here in Australia and on one of our international current affairs programmes, the argument was made that Obama may come across is being "too white" or not "black enough" in the sense that he doesn't speak on racial issues in the way that previous black nominees have i.e Jesse Jackson etc or he lacks the firey rhetoric of the civil rights movement. This was highlighted by other civil rights leaders like Al Sharpton etc. So, with that background, I wanted to ask some real people what their thoughts were on that. Obviously, you lack any constructive thought on the subject.

He has a beautiful family and I am so glad to be living in the USA . Who does not like to see a great change in their life time. This my ppl is history in the making. Will he become prez of our great country we call America. YES HE CAN. ROCK THE VOTE, SHAKE THE VOTE, I don't care how we do it. Just vote. A mind is a terrible thing to waste, Let us all rock the boat/vote and tip it over. He did not need the Super delegates to "choose the vote" we chose him. Congrats to Obama!

I think you're the only blind

I think you're the only blind one. I guess you are one of those people who either won't vote or won't vote for a dem. or a rep. you'll vote for the party with no chance of winning so you can sit around and whine. American deligates of different races voted for Obama, so don't even go there with that black people are so dumb crap. I am voting for Obama because I'm ready for change and accountability. I do believe we should all be accountable for our actions. Whether he becomes Pres. and does well or even if he flops at least I will know I stood for something. What do you stand for?

How do you think a law is passed and signed by the president ie Megans Law, Amber Alerts and even putting repeat pediphies behind bars for longer sentences. It takes all of us Americans to make this country run. The only one who knows it all his GOD. Don't give a president too much credit. Bush has run this country down in a hand basket. How much worse can Obama do?

[quote comment="107708"]obama president wouldnt change black america because obama wouldnt raise your kids you so they can stop being america`s top teen mothers, it wouldnt change the fact homeboys would rather sell drugs than fill out an application at wendy`s, it wouldnt change the fact sistas are having kids out of wedlock the economy? nah ! we`re heading towars difficult created by bushie and obama i`m sorry has limited leverage to do so , same thing for john mc cain speeches dont put food on the table[/quote] the problem with Black America is quotes like this - too many people pointing to our problems - no one pointing to the solution. this particular quote is one of the most hopeless I have seen. It is hopelessness - no end in sight, that keeps the girls 'america's top teen mother' and the homeboys hustling. They are caught in this cycle - there parents did the same so why not them...pure hopelessness. No Obama won't be raising our kids for us - but what this historical event will do for OUR future generations is dispell a myth that we cannot rise to the highest office in our country - given our history here. That's HUGE - that is MAJOR for our children to see this Black man with his Black family on the way to the white house. Just think of the black people who have passed away up til now - never in their lifetime seeing a black man make it this far. No better motto to help change the HOPE for the future than YES WE CAN!!! Black People - Though the above quote is a valid point - WE CANNOT GIVE UP ON OUR FUTURE. We cannot just write the future off as lost! We have to continue to EACH ONE TEACH ONE. No - Speeches do not put food on the table - but if listen good you might hear his plan to make your future better capable of putting food on the table. I think that is the message you are missing.

Now he needs the support of Congress to bring about his changes...because No he can't do it alone -we all know as President he won't have all the power. And it is through his gift of gab and charismatic nature that he will unite congress and hopefully have everyone on the same page to bring about the changes he speaks of. I feel he is wise beyond his years - and inspiring. and MUCH better that the alternative. What exactly does Mccain plan to do?

People just won't give him a

People just won't give him a break. When the whole Rev. Wright scandal came out, everybody wanted to bash him for that. So can you blame the man for leaving the church. Obama is trying to get somewhere and make things happen. That means that he will have to make some very difficult decisions that of course everyone will not agree with. And yes he will have to endure the responsibilities and some backlash for the mess that Bush has created. But somebody has to do it. I'm more than sure that Obama knows the risks and consequences of becoming the president at a time like this. But he cares enough for this country to take the backlash and the slandering. The situation would be no different for Hillary or McCain. People just need to give him a chance. And that's the truth.

Congratulations to Barack

Congratulations to Barack Obama. He as well as Americans have come a long way. I am more than proud of his accomplishments. For those who claim that he's just a dreamer or that his words are meaningless, you have clearly forgotten past American heroes. You are basically saying that the words of Martin Luther King Jr or John F. Kennedy meant nothing. They too were dreamers and their dreams and hopes gave many African-Americans the rights that we now take for granted. As for him bringing about change, he of course cannot do it alone or within a few days. He has said on many occasions that it will take time to create the America that we all long for. He is not GOD and he cannot perform miracles. All the negativity and the hating is doing nothing but making matters worse. What Obama will need more than anything, is the support of ALL the American people. (Or those who are tired of living in a society that is rapidly getting worse.)
