Did you believe that an African American would become president, ever?

Yes, I did.. And I believe that it is possible for everyone.. God willing, our country will begin a new era of change. As a mother of a bi-racial child (just like Barack Obama) and the wife of an African American. I am sooooooo happy for everyone! This is a day of celebration and hope for all Americans and for the world!
I heard this question asked to alot of people last night and today. Tell us your answer. Ask you parents and let us know what they tell you.

  • I never thought about it. I don't choose a candidate for the color of their skin, I choose them for the content of their character. But then again, I didn't vote for Obama due to the lack of 'content'.

  • Yes I Did! It really makes me proud to be an American! And shows how far we have come in just 50 short years!

  • I never had any doubt that our country would elect a president with a mixed ethnicity one day, and I fully support it!

    But, I never in a million years expected for that to be the reason WHY he was elected. It's just so sad when a man's skin color makes a difference either way!

  • I knew it was definitely possible, but I never could have imagined when I was twelve years old (the year Bush was first elected) that our next president would be bi-racial. It never even ran through my mind. And I'm very proud to be a young mom of a bi-racial child and a young American right now. I know the fight for total equality is FAR from over...but this one milestone is a huge step in the right direction =]

  • A Black American of African ancestry. This is the definition of African American.

  • I don't care what color our president is. I would feel the same as I do right now even if the pres. elect was asian, native american, or hispanic. I care about what a man stands for.

  • It always amazed me that this country has never had anything other than a white male! 'Bout time! (that's not why I voted for him, of course), but I am happy to see this turning point in our history! What blew me away was when all these people were calling him a "Muslim" (as if it were true, AND as if it were an insult!) and I kept thinking, who cares? What does religion have to do with being president?? I think it will be a great day when a non-christian gets elected.
