I don't think it matter what color skin the person is, if there's a Democrat running, 90% of Blacks will vote for them. The remaining 10% will go for the Republican...God Bless them!

I've measured Obama, and even for a politician he is woefully ignorant of most characteristics I value in a candidate. Born and raised in Chicago, and this Chicagoan has had enough half-baked, semi-racist populism shoved down her throat by the Chicago Machine. I never thought the day would come when I'd be ruled over at the national level by a nanny-state machine politician.

Secondly, I hate Harvard. I despise every brainless idiot to graduate from that most awful of schools. Harvard and Yale have done enough damage in the east coast. It's like the worst of both worlds all in one: backwards twit who ruled over corruption and never once interacted with the actual impoverished black communities in Chicago, with a Harvard degree, about to be elected.


Bull**** only blacks understand. He was raised by a white woman in a northside area so affluent no one understands it. The people who understand poverty by far outweigh those who understand the life of privilege and affluence Obama was raised in.
I'm from Chicago too, so what? Just because you disagree with me, doesn't make me wrong. This man has great qualities, enough to get him elected in the most unlikely of scenarios. If you can't recognize or acknowledge these qualities, then that is your problem. He's our next president whether you like it or not.

...and don't you forget it.

Also I see nothing wrong with Obama getting a more than favorable look from AAs since he is the FIRST EVER. THIS IS A HISTORICAL MOMENT considering this nation's shameful past and treatment of AAs. Only AAs truly understand what this man had to endure to get to this level, and he is to be admired.

I was leaving the country anyways, and for an extended period of time as it is. There's a set date, in fact.

When news reporters hit the streets and ask people who they are going to vote for in this upcoming presidential election, I don't know why they even bother to ask black people who they are going to vote for when they know the obvious answer for damn near all of them is going to be Barack Hussein Obama. Everybody knows one of the most retarded questions in the world is asking a black person if he or she is going to vote for John McCain or Barack Obama.

African Americans have overwhelmingly favored the Democratic Party ever since the Republicans started using the Southern Strategy.
