You should tell any child. Enough people voted for Barack Obama because of his race to tip the election in his favor. To make decisions exclusively or in balance because of race is in itself a racist act. Race is and must be irrelevant to qualifications or competent performance. In this case a man was elected without proof of qualifications. His performance in office has proven that he was not qualified for even a basic trainee position. We have had our quota of token presidents. They are just too expensive.
Now an aspiring person of color has an even greater burden to bear up the mountain to success. It does not equal his actual weight but instead the God like potential he presented to the delusional.
