So I have gotten used to it all. I understand and agree that this is an historic event, but my thought is.. if we have successful blacks (sorry need to be PC... african Americans.. ) in every aspect of our lives. Black business owner, black senators, black judges, black millionaires, why are we all acting like this could have never really happened and are going crazy over it. I agree it's a big thing, but I'd like to think its all a bit sensationalistic. Martin Luther King Jr did amazing things, no one can doubt that, but he did them so that a way could be paved, we are acting like this is the first successful black american. Why can't it just be about people voting for him because they liked what he said, not the color of his skin when he said it. It seems like in an effort to erase racism, it is just keeping it at the forefront. It really should just be about how we won't have to worry anymore about paying for gas and our mortgages. (fyi that is more of a dig on the silly lady that made that comment then it is against Obama).
