  • The dream of an "oppressed" people is realized, fair and square. Progress is great. Otherwise we'd all be in a 3rd world country like Mexico where the poor/indigenous have NOTHING. Celebrate that! Now it's been done. We can move on after this. Why can't you embrace that? Its not the color it's the dream. Don't you dream of a mansion? Don't you dream of going to Hawaii? I wouldn't have voted for Keyes, Jackson. This was the ONE.

  • It seems to me first off you are "anti-OBAMA"! If you had any amount of competence you would need not ask "how is this a historic event?" In 1870, blacks gained the right to vote due to the ratification of the 15th amendment. Until 1954, blacks or anyone appearing to be black such as Obama could not eat in the same restaurants as whites, drink from the same fountains nor sleep in the same hotel rooms & in a lot of places in the south you could not even be in certain parts of towns. But in 1954, laws to banish segregation were passed. In 1968, the Civil Rights movement ended (in a sense) giving people of color the same rights as whites allegedly. Though through individual racism & hatred towards people of color, we have not been given the same opportunities as whites until now.

  • Black men have attempted to run for office of President but were cut down or dropped out be/c of the fears of hatred lying beneath. THIS IS HISTORY be/c our Black Ancestors such as Dr Martin Luther King, Malcom X, Rosa Parks, Thurgood Marshall, The Little Rock 9 & I'm even bold enough to say JFK & Lincoln! All these people stood, marched & faught for our race to be free from segregation & have True Freedom! Had they not we could still be in slavery & segregated with no opportunities for tomorrow! So with this little history lesson for you dear, TOMORROW, MORE LIKE IN A FEW HOURS- HISTORY WILL BE MADE IN AMERICA THE HOME OF THE FREE! BECAUSE IF IT WERE NOT FOR THE PAST BATTLES TOMORROW WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE! THANK GOD FOR THE PAST & PRAY FOR THE FUTURE! I AM PROUD TO SAY "YES WE DID!!!!"

  • And as far as us knowing IF he will make a change, what are you going to do to make a change in YOUR OWN community?????!!!! It's not the Presidents job to change EVERYTHING. The change starts with each of us! I've already started mine.... a none profit org for military families to help with food and everyday necessities! It's not much to some but every little bit counts! I'll leave you with this thought...." We don't know if we'll wake up in the morning but we make plans for tomorrow." We live, we watch, we pray & hope.
