the 4th of november 2008 Barack Obama has been elected President of the United States.
It is the first black president in this country.
First of all I would like to tell you my opinion, then you can respond to mine or just tell what´s your opinion
I see this historical decision of the american population as a huge chance for the country itself to restore its damaged reputation in the World.
Barack Obama is the right man for a change, I know this word went through the media a lot and a lot of you can´t hear it anymore but i have to say
that it is very very true.
I don´t know what promises Obama can fulfill but where i´m sure is that he will always tell you the truth about the difficult decisions he has to
Politically, I don´t have to tell you that there can only be an improvement.
I would rather talk about the chance that a black man made it to the White House.
We need to be aware that this is the final step of an evolution which started in 1863 with The Emancipation Proclamation by Abraham lincoln, a law
which prohibits slavery.
Then there was Rosa Parks ; Martin Luther King. Thanks to the dedication of people like that, Colin Powell or Condoleezza Rice are able to be in a
position in which they are today.
Now with Obama as the President of the United States the evolution finally ends, because the most powerful man on the planet is black.
So I think that this is a great chance / probably the best chance ever that the tensions between black and white disappear ( even if that might take a
few years / generations ).
We all and everyone who reads this has to give something so that our world can be a better place
