I agree that race shouldn't determine a persons' vote when choosing the president.
On the news and ,I think, at the inauguration people were and still are saying that how great it is to have a president who's family was in slavery years ago.
News Flash: Obama's ancestors weren't born in the US. He is the first generation of his family to be born in America. So none of his family would have been in slavery, they would have been born in Kenya. Also recently ,since he was inaugurated, the issue of his birth certificate has been brought up. Was he born in the US? Is he really illegal. Sorry if I'm going on an don and on too much.

i agree that race shouldn't be the deciding factor, and people who think that the white house should be painted black clearly have too much time on their hands and not enough to think about. however, i AM estatic bout Obama's election - on grounds of his policies, his campaigning, his oratory and what i believe is, his skill to lead america well. and while race should not be important, it should be recognised - that such an achievement is wonderful and remarkable and right.

I agree with you on the race of presidents issue. I personally don't like Obama but not because he's black I could really care less about the color of his skin. Its almost sickening how people don't care about good 'ol politics anymore. I've talked to a lot of people about the election and the people I've talked to about Obama don't have a good argument they just say, he's just better. I'm getting off topic but I like politics and arguing and stuff. But I agree with you. Racial issues should stay out of office and the voters, the people, should only care about the canidates beliefs and what he says he's gonna change.
That was long. But good job and I hope no one hate comments you! Awesome! keep it up!

I don't know exactly what you were going for with this "essay". So what if people are happy about having a black president? As a country that was built on slavery and racism, I think it's perfectly fine if people are happy to see a black man in the "highest office". Yes, we should be more concerned about his policies and what he can do for the country than his skin color. But 43 presidents have been white, and you can say what you want, but especially for minorities it feels good to see our country evolve to allow minorities into the presidential seat. To many people, with Obama as president, they feel like they are being represented as the face of the United States. It's no longer just an old white man. Thank you for your time.

i dont believe that all people voted for him because of his race because my mom who is black orginally voted for hilary clinton and since she did win the nomination she voted for obama
