Americans elect a black man!

05Nov08

This must be surprising to the rest of world.

barak_obamaHow courageous and astonishing the rate of evolution Americans have surpassed. America is founded by emigrants, lest we forget the massacres they have done by the hatchet to gain the lands of the new world. Regardless of ones skin color, religion, and background, Americans have gone out in the largest mass seen on November 4th to elect Barak H. Obama, as the next president of the United States and to some extent, the world.

Graduated from Columbia University and Harvard Law School, the Illinois senator had a lot of differences with the previous administration’s ideology of the infamous W. Bush. In fact, from what has been debated so far with McCain, Obama seems to be in flat contradiction to Bush policies, and this means change, and hope for the world Bush has left behind him.

The average Iraqi will be more affected by Obama than any average American that voted for him. America’s foreign policy, which is viewed to be violent, and occupational by every other country in the world has catch their breath at the excellent news of Obama’s victory.

There is a lot to be said for America choosing a black president. It is a open statement, that Americans are not racist, at least not as much. They have somewhat overcome that, and looked beyond at a person who will be in charge of their country by his character, deeds, educational background, proficiency and charisma.

We Lebanese may have a lot to admire! I’d guarantee a lot of bloodshed if a Lebanese President wasn’t a Christian, or a Prime Minister wasn’t a Sunni, or House Speaker that isn’t Shiah.

  1. “Fitting that a black man will now reside as the President of the United States on the property where American slaves surely labored.”

    Exactly right. When people ask why two-thirds of D.C.’s population is black, the correct answer is that their ancestors, slave or free, were the ones who actually built it.

  2. 2 JAS

    “…lest we forget the massacres they have done by the hatchet to gain the lands of the new world.”

    Which occurred in PREVIOUS CENTURIES when most of the current 300,000,000+ Americans were not yet born nor ever had any relative who lived on this continent.

    Americans live in the present and walk forward, whereas many other cultures have one foot in the grave and stand in place. Perhaps the latter prompted your claim.

    By the way, black American slaves and European immigrants built the original White House in 1792, but many changes since then. In accordance with our Constitution any natural born American can serve as President, but a naturalized citizen cannot. Fitting that a black man will now reside as the President of the United States on the property where American slaves surely labored.
