Before I get called a conservative extremist, racist, or any other terms to classify me as an Obama hater, hear me out!
The title is not intended to be read as a racist statement or any other way to bash Obama and his party.
I voted for Romney because I believed in him. However, Obama won the election. That's fine, I accept that.
Now leaving my beliefs behind I will venture out into neutral waters as I develop this thread. I ask anyone reading this to stay neutral on the topic
and address the main point of my thread only.
Now that all that's out of the way on to the main point:
Two-hundred and thirty six years ago this country declared its indepence from Great Britain.
"We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,
that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."
At the time Africans were not seen as equals because they were brought to this country as slaves. This was the norm for our Fore Fathers since they
knew nothing else. It wasn't until many years later that they were freed from their bonds and became Americans, African Americans, but Americans
There are still those in America that are too caught up in the color of a man's skin that they can't see
past that fact, and actually see the matters at hand. Our fore fathers chose leaders based upon their leadership abilities and their policies not on
trivial matters. For example if our fore fathers chose our first leader, George Washington, because he had the best hair style or because they liked
his shoes, this country wouldn't have gotten very far.
Two-hundred and thirty six years later there are (some, hopefully not the majority) people out there that voted for or against our two candidates,
Obama and Romney, based solely on the color of their skin.
In our country, which is ever growing in its ethnicity make up, How can this be happening?
I'm not trying to single out a party and accuse them of this because they both are guilty of it.
There are "whites" out there that voted for Romney just because Obama is an African American, and there are African Americans who voted for Obama
because Romney is white.
However, There are informed voters of all ethnic backgrounds who voted for Obama based on his beliefs, and the same is true for Romney.
Until this country as a whole can transcend the racial views that sway their votes and make informed decisions, we're not going to get very far.
Once again I'm not trying to oppose President Obama with this thread. This thread is in response to some of the racial slurs that are now plaguing
social media such as Facebook and twitter.
Congratulations Mr. Obama on your win. Please man the helm strongly and steer us in the right direction. Prove me, and others who voted against you
