The world is in turmoil because of religion and there is no way we can prove superiority of one religion over other. Every religion teaches faith and peace. Whether Muslim, Hindu or Christian we all have same aspirations. We all want peace and prosperity. We should applaud American citizen for not being driven by religious or racial sentiments.

I hope he is a good president, but the racial thing needs to go by the wayside. We need to look at ourselves as Americans! I thought he considered himself a Christian, too. Not muslim!Get on with it people! We all can achieve in our life, do your best and quit bringing in the racial stuff, the media just loves to keep things stirred up between races. We are all the same in God’s eyes.

What concerns me is how everyone voted for him believed that he was the better choice just BECAUSE he is black. I mean really, what the **** has he done in his life to prove he is a reformer. Outside of being a good student, a professor for a few years and voting more liberally than anyone in the senate for a lowsey four years what has he DONE!! Don’t you people realize that to initiate change you must be able to cross party lines. How can you expect a man whose voting record shows him to be a radically left liberal to be able to reach across party lines (idiots)!! I still can’t believe that so many people have put so much confidence in a man obviously just for his skin color in a time when experience and PROVEN good judgment based on RESULTS is so critical for this country to deal with all its foreign policy, economic and domestic issues. I’m sorry but the presidency is not the appropriate place to exercise affirmative action people!!!

Is it because a white man got elected?
Yes it was a matter of race, if you don’t believe it than you are lying to yourselves.

Obama loves his white family, and is 100% loyal to America. I wonder why the need to cling to fear nd lies is so strong. Barak Obama is a sign that the bulk of the country has become sober and sane. Thank God!
We should all pray that President Obama be protected folks like “Sad Depressed American”, because we’ve lost too many good men to confused fanatics. God Bless America and God Bless President Barak Obama.

They must now stand up and ratify this anomaly that it is not just a freak event – that they have a reason to be proud. We can look up to the achievements of Obama, but they will be meaningless unless the rest of black America can show they are worthy of top leadership. They are getting their chance in the spotlight. They need to get off the street and into the library to continue to have the respect of the rest of the country. Obama and those like Tiger Woods worked their ***** off to get where they are. Now black america must do the same or we white folks will look at this as irrelevant – and won’t let it happen again. Have the respect for yourselves that you deserve. Don’t give up on life because you don’t think you have a chance to make something of yourselves – no more excuses. Here is your chance to pick yourself up by your baggy pants and make America proud of our colored brothers. I don’t want to make a business deal and see the underwear of the person as he walks away – unless it is a women. AMEN!

What’s up with this? How does one become black even though his mother was white? Same goes to Tiger Woods although his mom is a Philipino, he is “black” get over it people. He is the face of America! He is not black, white, pink, yellow, brown, or blue! In the words of President Elect Barack HUSSEIN Obama, their is no Black America, White America, Latino America, or Arab America. Their is only one America, The United States of America!!!!! Yes We Can!!!!
