Can we retire the race card now? I think it's been overplayed for years now. The country has spoken and racism should now be considered an exception rather than rule.

That's why Jessie Jackson was crying.  Not because a black man was elected president, but because he's out of a job.   Without the race card, he's a lost man.

I'd like to stop with the race comments as well, but all I keep hearing is that it is a historical night for the first black man to be elected president?  Why is this so hard to believe? 
Anyway, racism without a doubt goes both ways.  I believe we will see a great divide between whites and blacks over this, and I hope and pray that I'm wrong.

I agree with you on this, as any strong feelings that may exist will be strongly amplified.

I think we will see a lot of divide early, meaning tomorrow until january but I am optimistic that when he is in office things will change.

It's strange, but black people all of a sudden in the area I live seem confident and arrogant, even the crack heads and drug dealers.  I couldn't believe the number of voters today in line that don't have a job and ride around in $40,000 vehicles.  Yep, change is what we are getting.
Tonight after soccer, I went to Pizza Hut to eat.  A black couple left as we were walking in.  I knew the waitress that seated us and waited on the black couples table as well.  She handed me a slip of paper that said, "Vote Obama......TIP."  They left that for her as their tip.  
These type of incidents only will add fuel to the fire of hate for one another in this country.  I pray that people will try to look past these types of behaviors and stay positive.  We will need to support our new president.

Wait and see is all anyone can do at this point.  All I have is concerns and until I see first hand good or bad, I can't make an educated statement until it is applied in a practical sense.  All we know is a lot of promises were made over the last several months, now how much of that will Obama be able to make reality, with the focus of the economy.

How do you know they don't have a job?

Why? Because it's the FIRST black man to become president. Why did it take us this long?

Yes, it IS historical and still hard to believe that it happened. But it did.
