This was a question that was brought up from time to time when I was growing up, so after nearly 4 years, do you think america was ready for a black president?

It would have turned out much differently, with a Conservative Republican, like Martin Luther King.

There is nothing to fear about a black President. There's plenty to fear from THIS (half) black President. We warned you in 2008 of the ramifications of putting Barack Obama in office. Neither side of the political aisle is happy with him. Those who still slobber over him have been deemed worthless sheep and are no longer a force to be reckoned with. America has awakened from its warm-n-fuzzy-we-elected-a-black-president-slumber.

You reap what you sow. Thank God it will only have lasted 4 years.

We are more than ready for a Black president ... it's just that Obama was not the right person. We would have been much better off with Colin Powell or Condoleeza Rice as the first Black president.

The saddest part is that because of Obama it will be a very, very long time before we see another Black person sitting behind that desk in the Oval Office.

By now in 2012 skin color should be irrelevant! I have no issues with his color. I'm not a fan of his policies.

I definitely agree, whether he wins again or not, that will be it for a long time.

It's truly ashame that he was elected not upon his credentials but because of his mildly brown tone. The people wanted a black president but this was not the correct one.
