I find this refreshing! An article from a black man that is not using race as an excuse for under achieving and expecting something for nothing. I cannot believe race can possibly be used today. Every aspect of our society is filled with blacks that took advantage of a free education, scholorships, internships, encouraging parents and churches that taught them to be a Man/Woman and not to lean on the old school of RACE. Obama, the half black, talks about the conservatives living in the past- he is living way back in the past and trying hard to divide our county along racial lines. If for no other reason, he must be defeated.
