    Or is his possible election just something to make you feel good for a minute? Will it be a nice lovemaking session(days) or>>> A "quickie"? I just think that many of us are losing our sights in this blinding furor. Will ANYTHING change? Will we just have a darker skinned Massa? Will he change the way this country thinks? The way they treat US? Will he continue to lose his HUE? What say you. I will not cloud this with my opinion.

    What difference does it make if he becomes a dark skinned "massa"? Shouldn't we all have the aopportunity if we want it?

    Obama is not going to be the superhero "Black Messiah" to save us all from the yoke of racism. That's not what he's running for. He is campaigning for the job of presidency. That's it.

    His image may show up on some church fans with Martin Luther King, Mahalia Jackson and some praying children.

    I said "massa" not "messiah" Nobody is expecting that. So then if he does nothing to help his people, that is cool? Look, you all dont get me wrong. he is not my type of brother for the job. I am more a Khallid Muhammad type person, but Obama is what he is. So the answer to my question is........

    can you say supreme court?

    the next president will shape the supreme court for the rest of our lifetimes. is that long enough for you?

    given just that one factor, anybody who is pessimistic or not committed to an obama victory should probably have their head examined.

    Well, I wouldn't be that extreme. I would say that politically, he would be better than John McCain. But I don't expect him to grant some boon to the "Black" community. Our challenge remains the same.
