There is not need for reparations. My great grandfather was black but I look white will I get money? It is really ridiculous many are biracial and have slave owners and slaves as ancestors. So they pay themselves. Time to move on and take responsibility for our lives. We all have the opportunity to make it if we choose to make good choices and live responsibly. Race is not what holds people back poor attitudes and chips on the shoulder are.

I don't understand this sentence of your Header
"All that he has to say I completely agree with and I must face facts that he says what is needed"
Please explain so I can better understand your point/position. Thx
Otherwise, Isn't Obama against "Reparations'? http://www.blackvoices.com/newsarticle/_a/obama-opposes-slavery-reparations/20080802090309990001

If you really watch the debates, you can see how Obama is not a victim of what has been said about him during this campaign. He moves on and seems to be dealing with the main issues, and doesn't seem to get his personal feathers ruffled. I find this to be an excellent quality in a leader.

Huh? His father wasn't a slave here...why would Obama try to get reparations for blacks? Do you think just because he's half black that he'd do that? Ridiculous. The man is concerned about the issues and reparations aren't one of them.

YES--he does--but not just a check--with Universal Govt Programs--his "Redistribution of Wealth."
