He had is wife do it for him in interviews, as well as make it clear he went to all black church, which he then tried to deny after it was admitted earlier. Actions can speak just as loud as words to get a message across. Just like Palin and her winkadink habit/move.


I never really noticed all of that because I tried my best to ignore all of the crap surrounding this election, but of all of the messages I did receive from both sides, I never got the feeling that Obama was advocating the fact that he's not white to gain support. That's my fault for not paying attention, but I figured that if Obama was playing the race card then my anti-Obama teachers would have complained about it in their daily "Why Obama sucks" monologues.




History of the GOP begins with the breaking off of the democrat party due to disagreements about slavery among other things. Abe Lincoln was nominated by the GOP to run for presidency. You think it coincidence that the GOP wanted Abe (given his darker than normal skin and ethnicity) to carry out the new found parties view on slavery and how to abolish it?

Abe Lincoln and the GOP gaining office slit the country, they reacted to his views as well as his looks.

To disprove your guess in red, Abe was called "Abe Africanus the First" by his democrat opponents. This shows that he was viewed as part black in addition to his and the GOP's stance on slavery.


They may have seen him as part black, but not "black enough" to be someone's slave, or to be considered inferior to white people, which still supports my claim that society's perception of a person is one factor that determines their race.

ummm .. no he would be picking cotton due to the "One-Drop Rule"


That same rule is why he would have be seen as less than human and just a piece of property to be bought, used, and sold, i.e a black person.

Hmm. I would vote for him but I'm too young. To me, I'll just see him what is he going to do with the economic and enviromental issues. And other generals.

so? the world is now on his shoulders and he could be our saviour or the doom of the world. what do YOU think?



Goddamn, woman. It's the fucking United States of America.

Anyways, he better be able to support his country; I still think that he's the better choice.
Posted 11/11/08
For now I'm just going to have to take his word for it and see what he's going to do next. I just hope no one does anything irrational while he's president. Overall, congratulations to Obama.

I think he's going to spend a year tops in office before the people see him for what he really is. A human being, not some prophet. And besides 70% of the crap he promised is not even the goverment's responsibility. So he has absolutely no obligation to do most of the stuff he said he would. And he probally wont do most of the stuff he promised, I give it about a year tops.

sad thing is, i bet most if not all of you cant actually name his policies and how hes going to fix them. Thing is, Obama supporters along with McCain Supporters dont even actually know what they planned to do. If i asked you? Oh you liked Obama's policies or his plan to Fix the economy... what was that plan? No one would be able to answer. The reason why is due the fact that Obama never really told anyone what exactly he will do, but everyone pretends like he did and they know. Same goes with McCain. Its silly if you ask me. Fact is, no one knows jack about what Obamas plans or strategy is, all we know is a vague idea of his parties political agenda.

You can never rely on a politician running for president to do what they say they will do, or make you believe will be the end result, because once they are president, they dont have to do anything of the sort. Its all in telling you what you want to hear in order to get the vote with out actually answering jack shiet.

Its ironic.
