I stayed up late last night / this morning and watched the news over here in the UK, watched some more today, and unless it is just our media's way of reporting one thing stuck out.
The majority of the interviews with the American public (well at least the ones I saw) were held with black Americans and all interviewed were estatic that Obama had won, fair enough the guy you voted for has won and so be happy.
BUT the reason for the happiness was because a black American had been voted in, it seemed to me at least that their votes had been based on colour first and creating American history second................politics got the bronze.
Does anyone else think that or am I way off he mark ????
Finally before you try to put a racist slant on my post then be aware that my neighbour is Indian and we get on very well thank you, in fact we gossip like two housewives nearly everyday.

Of course African Americans are happy and thrilled and any other adjective you can toss out there... they have every right to be. Think about it 250 years of slavery... another 100 as marginalized second class citizens and 50 year since the civil rights movement and finally a black man is elected president with a significant majority
