Well maybe one good thing will come out of this, if nothing else.

I don't want to hear another word about "racist America" or "The White Man". I'm just going to refuse to hear it now.



Am I alone on this?

  • It won't end. Now if we say anything bad about the president, it will be that we are racist... They'll probably pass a hate crime bill against speaking against the president and pretty soon we won't be able to speak freely anymore...

  • I should hope you are along in this. Unless Barack Obama won the popular vote by 100%, than there is the possibility that some voters were affected by race. We can't know what the motivations for people's votes are.



    This election simply means that the majority of Americans realize that there are more important issues to a candidate than race. To think this means an end to racism in America is naive, at best.

  • I am an Obama supporter and I 100% agree with you. We have come this far as a nation so I think it is time for people to move on from the slavery days. Those who look only to the past are sure to miss the future....

  • This may be the very thing that will finally, once and for all, end the racial divide. Black people will not be able to say that America is racist now that the very first black man who ran for president has won by a landslide!

  • I see your point of view but I also feel that I don't want to hear anymore "the White man" and "racist AMerica", the same as I do not want to hear anymore lines like "Well, Blacks can have a all black college, but if we did- we would be called racist". See, its a constant circle that goes round and round, if AA aren't talking about racism white people are bringing it up, throwing it in the air, and drawing attention back to it. I do appreciate your post, thanks.

  • No you are not alone. I don't mean that in a negative sense but the idea that prevailed that this country was so racist is and hasn't been true. I think that myth has been now proven false. Specific individuals will still be racist on both sides and have been, but overall our country isn't. I hope this is going to be a step in the direction that at some point we don't have to hear about the white vote, the black vote, the womens vote or any thing like that. That someday people of all races will not even consider the race of the candidate. That goes for blacks and whites.
