I couldn't give a stuff who the yanks elect. He can be orange for all I care.
The, "Is the USA ready for a black president?" is a non-question. No one asked, "Is the USA ready for a moron?" was never asked when they elected Bush. Actually, even though Obama is an African-American, he is not, in the usual sense of being of negroid origin. He is of Kenyan and American descent.

Dad black, mother white, why do we call him Black. For all I care, he is colored or just another human being. Just because someone is quarter white or pink or red, does it matter? Just my two toea worth
Senat OBAMA was declared President elect at 10.00 pm amrican time. He is the 44th and fisrt Black President of USA. Congratulation to him. unfortunately, his grand maa was not around to witness the most important event in her child's achievement.
you know its all great and all that this guy has been voted into office but you gotta think of just what he has inherited.
seriously, the american economy has crumbled. and the economic decisions made by bush have further promoted the decay and strengthened the recession.
from what i can see, all this was played out so that when the first black president was elected, the entire country would be in a $hit hole and he would get blamed.
so in a nutshell, fiscally conservative republicans are evil. long live democrats!!
You appear to be an a typical white Austrailian whom is not racists. But have a serious problem with black unity, I see the disappointment in white Austrailian eyes when they see Melanesians and Negros from Africa mingling. At one time in college a white professor was extreme distruibed by the fact. Melanesians and Africans see each other as the same people. Based upon race and not tribe affliation. I was more shocked that she was leading a debate to cause a rift! If you never heard Barrack I'm pretty sure you would of saw him as a black man. And no where close to other race breed category.
'O wat gifts the Giltie gie us, to see ourselves as others see us. (Robert Burns)
I grew up in several cultures. I guess I was at least 11 or 12 years of age before I thought of myself as any race. I guess being a brown skinned guy, sort of blurred the edges of cutural identity for me a bit. I always thought of myself as Australian. (Whatever that is) I still haven't figured that one out yet. My reaction when meeting people from another race, (Unless they are actively engaged in throwing sharp pointed objects at me) is curiosity. What makes these people tick? I must find out about them.
This is great to see history in the making, but all this trumpeting about the first "black" president, is racist in itself. The president is merely a figurehead, and has little real power. Any legislation has to be passed by congress first. As was seen by the "Rescue Package" legislation recently.
They had a poll on Nine MSN news, as to whether Obama should be president. My reply was the same as to you guys. "What busines is it of Australians, it is for the citizens of the USA to decide." No one else.
As long as I have been reading your postings Ralph. You always have identified yourself as being a proud Anglo saxon now all of a sudden you are brown skinned. I never heard of a brown skinned white man before and this is the first time. And what I mean about a brown skinned white man I am not speaking of some white guy with a tan.
Obama for all I care is another champion, not because he is black or colored, but because he is a human being who is what he is now...The president of the most powerful country in the world. I can agree with Ralph that when people are jumping up and down and saying, ..The first black president, the first black president...it is also a racist language to person of another races. chinese people are not regarded as white so that would be offensive to them also.
I did not see Ralph's comments as being racist towards the black race , so how did one dig that one out.??
Blackpela you are as guilty of stereotyping too. That would be tantamount to my saying, all you black people look the same.
I have identified myself many times as being a brown-skin. But that does not stop me classing myself as a a whitey. I have Scots on both sides of my family, but obviously there is a black guy in the lineage somewhere.
What is your definition of a white-man then? I would be interested to know if I qualify.
Let me make a prediction. I believe the goodly Mr.Obama will never serve out his full term. He will be asassinated first. The world may be ready for a black-man as president, but I do not think the USA is. Martin Luther King was one of the greatest people on this earth. Just think what he may have achieved had he lived. I don't think Mr. Obama is a patch on him. Neither is anyone else for that matter, who they have had as president since those days.
Blakfela, Pasim maus, this is a forum where no one cares who is writing this on the keyboard somwhere. They probably writing from the grave,,...for all I care.
Em blakfela or white. You go and get a life....
Yu wanpela lus one street...You freakin' sorry ash. Shut up
if some blacks want to discuss Barack Obama in this forum; fair dinkum, let em talk, who are you to spill your piece of dirth all over, sometimes better not get involved if you are not welcome; but stray scurvy dogs dogs are stray scurvy dogs, with their scruffy tails hoplessly trying to keep the flies off their sick ******* continue to sniff around...over to you sick stray dog.
