    I have finally come to the conclusion that I will vote for Back Obama in the Texas primary for one reason.

    At least he IS married to a BLACK Woman.

    running a campaign here Brother O? :lol:

    All Black folk should vote for Obama for one reason only - he isn't white!

    people who question that.. hmmm.. pretending they (the candidates) dont all come from the same camp - pretending that the vote counts - pretending that the Pres is pulling the strings. :lol:

    All right. nothing further from the truth - but.. I understand the reluctance of folk giving up what they believe is 'power' - non existant as it may be.

    I hear/read too often about black folk willing to vote for their known/recognized oppressor. white man. sorry... woman ;) hahahaha

    :lol: :lol:

    Apologies if I offend those who are still believing in the american constitutional rights etc.. even though thats been blown out of the water 10 times over.. Jesus was a white guy too :)

    But what I really want to say - is the whole world (my world.. haha) is appalled Black folk in the USA would even question. Sure - Obama is not a Black leader. Either is Hilary. But even if the man does not step up to Black issues - just by being NOT WHITE speaks volumes to the world.. which incidentally, isnt run by you folk no mo. :lol:

    Viva Obama!! :lift:

    Sorry, I must take a different position.

    If I actually do vote for Barack Obama it will not simply be because he is a Black Man.

    It is because he is a Black Man married to a Black woman who I think is much sharper than Hillary Clinton or any of the other potential "First Ladies" combined.
