AFTER WHAT AMERICA'S MINORITIES ACHIEVED GAINING EQUALITY - TO SEE IT GOING TO THE "NEXT STEP" WITH RACE & GENDER DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WHITE MALES VIA AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IS PRETTY SAD ACTUALLY. AND TO SEE A JUDGE WHO BACKS THAT KIND OF THING GOING ON TO THE SUPREME COURT - VERY DISAPPOINTING. WITH ALL THGE JUDGES WHO BELIEVE IN EQUALITY, COULDN'T OBAMA HAVE PICKED ONE OF THEM. IT MUST BE BECAUSE HE DOES NOT BELIEVE IN EQUALITY. APPARENTLY HE DOESN'T OR HE WOULDN'T HAVE APPOINTED A RACE/GENDER DISCRIMINATOR TO THE SUPREME COURT. EQUALITY MEANS EQUALITY. IT DOES NOT MEAN CERTAIN GROUPS CAN GO AFTER OTHER GROUPS BECAUSE OF THINGS THEIR ANCESTORS SUPPOSEDLY DID. AND TODAY, WITH A BLACK OR PART BLACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE - A BLACK CHAIRMAN OF CITIBANK - A BLACK CHAIRMAN OF BANK OF AMERICA - A BLACK CHAIRMAN OF AMERICAN EXPRESS - A BLACK CHAIRMAN OF AETNA - AND SO ON AND SO ON - IS IT REALLY NECESSARY TO BE GOING AFTER WHITE GUYS WITH RACE AND SEX DISCRIMINATION ? IT'S REALLY NOT ABOUT EQUALITY, IS IT ? IT'S ABOUT TAKING ADVANTAGE. THAT IS CALLED RACISM AND GENDER BIAS. AS TO WHY THAT IS GETTING A FOOTHOLD IN THE SUPREME COURT - THAT IS PRETTY SAD.

Sir it is not necessary for you to be pulling out non sense from the top of your head about President Obama. He is making great changes unlike our Ex President ever did.Obama is setting up healthcare programs and education funding for children everywhere. He gave an amazing speech to highschool students and related to them in so many ways. In all of his speeches he has related it into his own personal life and he knows stories about people in different states that have healthcare problems or education needs. It shows that he cares for us.Now on the other hand of you talking about seeing all of these African Americans or black chairmans is not because Obama is President, It's just that he had a great impact on people that now it shows that it doesn't matter what race you are or where you come from, just how you succeed in life yourself. Obama is not getting revenge for what happened to his ancestors you need to stop thinking these things in your head. I am very proud of obama.
