Let's just be honest here. Obama won BECAUSE of his COLOR and the HOPE that America might be united. Blacks & whites elected him. Not because he deserved it or even met the basic qualifications, but because he was a good salesman.
85% of whites that didn't vote for him - didn't because of what he STOOD for. His crazy politics, his lack of experience, his questionable mentors, his socialistic ideology. Color was NOT reason we didn't vote for him - commonsense was.
We should be telling ALL our children that you NEVER hire anyone "unqualified" because of their color. People have to LEARN to EARN their positions. Time, experience, failures, gained wisdom = being successful.
FACT: Color is an excuse for those that refuse to learn & earn.
