    Im so sick of hearing about race and religon. You do not have to be Christian to be President and you most certainly do not have to be White. So what his middle name is Hussein. All of this should have NOTHING to do with choosing who to vote for. What happend to thinking about the issues at hand and what you feel like should be done about them and choosing whoever has views closest to your own. This country needs alot of changes and I believe Obama is the one to make them. Open your minds people.

    Now see listen to this brad character. You see Brad this is what the americam people are so sick and tired of, all this foolish race baiting, why dont you and others just stop this nonsense. If your case were true then I would have voted for jesse jackson when he ran for president, which I did not. If that were the case I would have voted for Al Sharpton when he ran for president, which I did not. So what exactly is your argument here?? The american people have had enough with this foolishness, this kind of nonsense is what got us in the situation were in now with this economy. It's time to let this nonsense and race baiting go and pull together to bring america back to where it needs to be. I personally think Obama is the one to do that, Who cares what color he is except you and a few others?

    If you don't understand the importance of voting for a candidate because of his/her platform as apposed to voting because of race, then you need to stay home in November and not vote. People that select a candidate because of race are not thinking about the needs of the country as a whole, only themselves, or their race. This is wrong. When you abuse the system this way(no matter what race you are) your right to vote should be taken away. Besides, you are white, the figures below don't apply to you. Like I said, if you don't understand why its so wrong to cast a vote due to race, then you're not mature enough, smart enough, or wise enough to make a decision as to whom should be president.

    Brad- So what???? Every American has the right to vote. Weather they are White, Black, Red, Yellow or Green. I just don't get what the point all of you are trying to make is. I happen to ge white, and I happened to vote for Obama. Not because of his color, but because I think is the best person!

    Black vote registration increased by 40%. That means that 40% did not vote last election or even before, but did this time. Wonder why? 91% of the black vote went to obama. If you can't read and understand the writing on that wall, then you're either blind or extremely naive.

    To Lavon, five dollars says J.M. will be YOUR next president. Trust me he's not forgotten.

    Why does everything have to be black, white, black, white? I would vote for someone purple if he stood for the best interest of the American people. If either one of these people backed up what they are saying if elected then good for them. many times have we all heard the promises?

    I dont understand where all this the only reason why blacks are voting for Obama is because he is black. First of all where do you get the assumption that I am black??? This is exactly the kind of race baiting tactics that we don't need in america. Why can't an african american vote for Obama because they think he is the better candidate?? I can't speak for anyone else but when I go to the polls I vote for the candidate who I think is best to lead this country. Get use to it because He is going to be your next president so drop your race baiting tactics and move on and support this man....Oh by the way does anyone know a man that goes by the name of John MCcain???? Lol!! He's already forgotten about....ha ha ha!! \

    Well 91% black voters voted for obama, 59% white voters voted for Hillary. If the white voters voted for their race like the black voters did theirs,then we would have a different winner. So of the two races who is being the most racist? Looking at these numbers 41% of the white voters voted for obama and then 9% of the black voters voted for Hillary. This tells me the black voters are more racist. IF obama had inherited his mama's skin, we would be asking "Who is Obama?" It is sad that voters aren't looking at the character of the candidate and not their color. MLK would be very disappointed in our people, but then again he probably was already.

    I am a 55 year old white woman who has voted for Obama - and I have more class that you will ever know. Hillary is a fool for living with a fool - obviously only staying for her own political gain. Do you want that? Our country's principles have gone down the drain. Your narrow minded thinking is part of the reason. Obama is an intelligent, open-minded individual who has the whole country's interest at heart. Sometimes we have to quit thinking of only ourselves and think of what is good for everyone. You are out of line.
