    (US News) That's a question that's going to be raised a lot between now and November, not least by Barack Obama, as he did at this Jacksonville fundraiser. "They're going to try to make you afraid of me. He's young and inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's black?"

    I think Obama is going to get the ultimate seat! I just don't see how he can't win it. I just don't think McCain is strong enough to pull it off. Besides, I think most of America is ready for a democrat to correct the havoc that the republicans have caused the last eight years.

    The only way it won't happen if Bush uses his increased presidential powers to declare martial law . . .

    I think the point is moot.

    He is already the leader of a major political party in the West. That has not happened ever. The question is actually two questions.

    1. Is America racist?

    Absolutely!

    2. Can Barack win?

    Absolutely!

    I think we have this thing weighted wrong. No matter what happens, the U.S. is a country built on "White" supremacist ideals and beliefs. Is this a step in the right direction? That is a possible question that could come out of this. Right now, I would say yes.

    And even though we all know this country to be as racist as rice is white, most of us are still having a tough time grasping this possibility. We always knew we could get some backwards self-hating Tom to become President.

    But we didn't expect Barack. He certainly ain't perfect. . .but he is light years away from Clarence Thomas.

    While Race Relations are Not Perfect: Poll Shows That we are Heading....

    Newly released numbers tell a story that finds itself in stark contrast too what so many in the “baby boomer” generation (you know who I am talking about; parents, friends parents, aunts, uncles, etc.) say regarding Obama’s chances, our country in all reality is more then just open to the idea, in fact roughly 90% of white American’s are fine with the idea of a black man becoming the President of the United States.

    According to a Washington Post/ABC News poll, released earlier this morning, when asked about a black President, almost unanimously “whites” responded that they were completely open to the idea of a black President....

    People this is a con game. Whites are easily tricked if there is one thing I have learned being an entrepreneur. They spend money easily,if you got they want they will buy! It is all a self fulling/defeating prophecy to even ask this question.

    Look at other groups,Asians don't ask will blacks buy black hair care products(perhaps they did at once),they get the goods,open up shop and sell it for the low low price! get it?
