    It is fantastic that on the very day of the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr,'s "I have a dream" speech that the first black man nominated by a major political party in this country to be president will be giving his acceptance speech.

    I would hope that all people of goodwill will applaud this, regardless of political persuasion. :)

    I applaud it makes me proud American


    but also remember Barack Obama is bi-racial and is caucasian as well which does not take away from the historic occasion but just adds to it.

    He must be under tremendous pressure but I think he will tone it down and be intimate with American people, he will lay out His vision, His dream for this nation.

    Why should we applaud a baby killer, one who believes in black genocide? Obama is one of the biggest shams ever pulled on African-Americans and the American people in general. What he stands for is the polar opposite of what MLK believed in.

    How can any American, let alone anyone who says they are a "born-again Christian" support someone who believes this American genocide (and black genocide) is okay?

    Some of us can lay aside politics for a moment, LE, and appreciate the racial progess that we Americans have made since 1776.

    >but also remember Barack Obama is bi-racial and is caucasian as well

    And so are 95% or so of all African Americans. How can that be? According to Mendelian genetics "white" is a recessive characteristic. Another 1000 years and there will be no more white people except a few family clans in Alabama and West Virginia. <G>

    According to the Internet, Obama is:

    "Therefore by ethnic lines the Senator is 50% Caucasian, 43.75% Arab, and 6.25% Black African (from where the Senator gets his skin pigmentation). "

    Apparently, some people, including some Christians, have racial prejudice issues that they need to deal with when they can't appreciate the historical importance of what is happening tonight in Denver. :tear:

    By the way, LE, my comment is not directed at you or any other poster. I think that the case with you and others is not that ya'll are racially prejudiced, but that ya'll have become so blinded by right-wing radio and websites that ya'll can't look at any event other than through a right-wing political lens.

    Why should we celebrate the very thing King decried? He wanted a country where people are judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. But some continually ignore the character of Obama and focus on his color. I think we should celebrate King's speech by ignoring Obama and focusing on his policies.

    I guess we'll put you down as one vote NO for Obama! Even though it was hard to tell through the mildness of your words...

    I don't think it's Obama or King that needs to be celebrated, it's America as a whole and how far we've come in 45 years.

    Hard to think you can't put down your gun long enough to appreciate a great moment for this country...

    In some ways we have come a long ways.

    I don't have a gun. I was pointing some facts that what we are celebrating is not what King talked about.

    Furthermore, I think Obama's policies (which are what is important) are nothing to celebrate. We should be embarrassed that he has so much support.

    I look at character, not skin color. The lens I look through is how character aligns up with Scriptural values which tells us we are not to murder, that we are not to shed innocent blood. The right to life is not only a Biblical issue, it is also a Constitutional issue. Those who promote shedding of innocent blood are anti-Christ and those who do not grant equal rights to unborn Americans in the womb, are anti-Constitutional and do not protect the rights of all Americans.
