We just had a Presidential election that was historic in many ways. It was good to be a part of that election—no matter what candidate you voted for. BUT! Most of the people that have been interviewed by news programs have totally missed the point of this election.
We were voting for a President to lead our country in a difficult time. WE WERE NOT VOTING ON THE COLOR OF THE SKIN!!! I have heard people commenting that the black are now truly free; our country has finally become equal; we have now left racism behind; and many other comments that regard race ONLY.
NOT ONE OF THESE COMMENTS WAS ABOUT ANYTHING BUT RACE!!
One well known radio show had a “man on the street” segment which showed very well how uninformed the voters really were. They asked the public about Obama’s views & promises; but they actually were attributing McCain’s views & promises to Obama. No one noticed. They also asked what the public thought about Obama’s VP running mate –Sarah Palin!! They all said that they thought she would do well and that she was a good choice. GIVE ME A BREAK! This shows what they were voting for and it wasn’t for a candidate!
While I agree that this has been a momentous election; I do not agree with voting for any candidate for any office based on the color of their skin.
If you are going to vote PLEASE LEARN ABOUT WHO YOU ARE VOTING FOR! I don’t care which party you choose, or what your political views may be, but please don’t vote based on race!
The election was definitely historical; mostly for ignorant voters.
