I just happen to believe that it's about time that black Americans, after having loyally supported white Democratic presidential candidates for so long--since 1960, when John F. Kennedy was the first presidential candidate to actively and publicly court the African American vote, to give the chance for them to vote for a black.

It just makes me proud to be a member of the greatest political party in the world.

By Internationalist, you mean Pro-UN/Let everyone roll over USA approach??

Now, there is 1 good thing out of this election (probably the ONLY positive):

You're really not as fun as your moniker would seem to indicate.

O please, white people have always celebrated; there has always been a White President .......

Futhermore, people of all races were celebrating not just black people. Why is it considered racist that blacks were proud of the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT who just happened to connect with the issues that the middle and lower class face ?

His race was just icing on the cake.

What you state here makes absolutely no sense.

No, but your comment clearly show you to be a raging racist. Stuck in the past with old hatred, sad really (for you).
