Finally we can have a black man that fully embodies the struggle and triumph of black people in America.
You know, I'm looking forward to the day where a Native American becomes president. I hope that this is celebrated a lot more than some dude that doesn't even know where he was born.

Are you saying that we should love him because he is black and because blacks suffered after the Civil War?
I am not clear on what you mean.
