    A dream is still a dream. After you wake up, nothing changes.

    Is that anything like: "Meet the new guy. Same as the old guy (but with the press kissing his ass instead of trying to kick it)"????

    Well, duh. Racial issues will change when dropout rates change, when education rates change. It's not about thinking a race is superior to another (except for a few), it's about expecting effort and performance to be equal and a (half) black president being elected doesn't change anything.

    Hm-m-m.... sounds like having a father around to take care of the kids might be a good idea. Eh?


    Thought of the day.

    In the beginning, I was happy to see Obama elected because he was the first 'black' to be president. He would improve our black race. Well, time goes by and there is no improvement. It was what they called 'hope'.

    It's called: James Carville and other election strategist gurus doing what they do. Frame a thought, keep repeating with endless anecdotal variations -- or simply re-cycle the ones that seem to resonate with a naive groupie-style crowd -- and VOILA!!! You won yourself an election, dude!!!

    (Keeping election promises is purely optional, and mostly never fulfilled. In some cases, however, that is a big "Thank You!!! "I'm gonna close Gitmo the day I take office."[paraphrased] -- Barrack Hussein Obama)

    It certainly didn't stop anyone from pulling the trigger.

    I never know when Press Cover is lurking around waiting to pounce on me with his KKK blubbering.

    Well of course race relations weren't automatically better. Anyone of any ideology or race who thought that electing a black president would erase the centuries of racial tensions, prejudices and strife is incredibly naive. I think that Obama has a very strong grasp on race relations however (his speech on race was nothing short of brilliant), and that there is certainly the potential for things to improve during his term. But no one man can wave his hand and make the history of this country magically better.

    What an assinine post. Obama's been in office barely a half a year, such things are NOT going to change that fast. What? Do you think more whites became nicer to blacks because Obama was elected? No! Things actually got worse what with random violence of whites on blacks that occurred right after the elections.

    And of course, with all the bigots running around these days, I'd be frankly surprised if it it turned out that race relations had improved.

    Oh, aren't we clever? ;)

    Yes, you're absolutely right I will, because that is still too soon. And then what will YOU say? Something like "what will you say then, two years." Oh, crap, you already did.

    You and NEP are delusional to think that race relations can improve so significantly quick if for no other reason than a new president. Is this even his primary mandate to start with?

    I stand by my words. This is an assinine post, and the CNN poll was equally stupid in its presumptions.
