By: Cynthis Sat, 22 Mar 2008 19:08:51 +0000 Obama gave a very moving speech about race. A speech for everyone to hear and ponder. No doubt the speech will be studied by historians in the years to come. However, he did not answer the question at hand. How does he feel in his heart of hearts about the anti-American and yes, racist rhetoric that his pastor spewed at the congregation? I have been in Black and white churches,and I have never in my life heard such comments from the pulpit. If I did hear it, I would know it is time to find a new church. People judge all of us by the company we keep. This will be a lingering issue in the election whether people admit to it or not. We should all pray that the best person wins the election.

By: Apple Diva Thu, 20 Mar 2008 13:13:44 +0000 I watched his speech live that morning.

Only Barack Obama could give that speech about race to disarm all Americans. I loved how he addressed every group and reminded us of the struggle, success and work that still need to be done in this country to fix the inadequacies of the system. I, especially, liked when he was talking the Black people, us. He talked about the ills and struggles and reminded us that we have to be proactive in raising and being there for our children, reading to them, giving them hope by letting them know that they, too, can do great things in the society. (Made me mist up.)

I am a member of Christian denomination where the pastors are rotated every 5-7 years, do I now have to worry if some of them say inappropriate things on the pulpit. The church is more than the pastor. Church is about fellowship and community, helping those in need. If I left every time my pastors said something silly or inappropriate, I would be at the house almost every weekend.

You are doing a great job here, I enjoy having a vast amount of topics to ponder, you really allow a sister to connect with the wisdom within. Thank you.

By: rootsrock Thu, 20 Mar 2008 04:58:41 +0000 I admire Obama’s get up stand up for your rights attitude, I think his speech spoke volumes to every race, age and creed listening that day. This is the Man for the Job, This time we need a leader with a good head on his shoulders, this time we need someone who can defend himself and all his people.This time we will be heard.
Yes America this time we need OBAMA!

By: regina Wed, 19 Mar 2008 22:56:15 +0000 Obama is awesome and as you stated “the content of his character” is exactly right! I wish him the best and I wish the best for America (they will have to vote for Obama to get it!)!

By: tycajam Wed, 19 Mar 2008 21:35:01 +0000 I watched this with my hubby, hands held and all. My mind has been working overtime this election cycle with these candidates. I’m used to constant divisiveness in politics from the country of my birth. Crossed the ocean and didn’t think there was much diffence in the political landscape in this my new homeland. But I have to say like Mrs Obama, I don’t think I’ve had a prouder or more conscious moment. It was lived history and I’ve watched it with a mixture of humility and awe. And if I didn’t quite allow myself to believe that he was the man for the job before, I will say this, I had a breakthrough and it was beautiful!

By: Niki Wed, 19 Mar 2008 20:56:39 +0000 I think most Americans are interested in coming together, in doing something other than the same ol’ business as usual, But you will always have those people who invested in our conflict with one another and will only hear what they want to hear.

I, for one, found that Barack Obama hit the right note with his speech.

I first read this below on “Now I Can Document Failure” and had to some research to confirm.

“In 2 years as a United States senator, Obama authored 152 bills, and co-sponsored another 427. Hilary authored 20 in six years. Don’t believe me? Check the Library of Congress. Obama has actively participated as a senator instead of just voted. Here’s acategorization of the bills he introduced:”

233 regarding health care reform,
125 on poverty and public assistance,
112 crime fighting bills,
97 economic bills,
60 human rights and anti-discrimination bills,
21 ethics reform bills,
15 gun control,
6 veterans affairs and many others.
