"ashraf", you express yourself well and seem to be relatively well informed.

There is a lot of "seeing" Obama through preconceived discrimnation and various other reasons.

Pre and uninformed assasinations of anyone's character or beliefs is absolutely wrong.

The biggest wrong is the total blindness of reality when that reality is "heavily", repeatedly, and deeply presented. When the person himself directly contradicts the writings in his own book and, the lies are widely spread and, truth buried by a "free" press to gain a very powerful position of great control, then I would say that anything truthful presented about this person gunning for a public office is a moral obligation. If anyone has the blind and absolute ignorance of a majority number of voters, then it is the moral right and absolute responsiblity for those facts to be put out there.

Our population in the U.S is terribly mis-informed because it has dabbled so long and deep with entertaining themselves. It has become suddenly fashionable to be involved in indulging the major "news" outlets and voting with no perspective from history. To say voting against someone is a vote tied to a discriminatiory moral base is very narrowly true. An effort to guilt people into voting for someone merely because the assumption is ... any other vote is "discrimanatory" ... well, that is just as wrong. Subtle coercion has been used to great affect in this election by the liberal Dems.

Alan Keyes is a black man that debated Obama directly and, clearly and publicly showed Obama who he was and what he believed. Obama answered with answers that showed him to be politically savvy and totally ignorant of real Christian belief. Of course, most of our population is in the same place. Obama knows that and, debated his answers to the majority of the population that is absolutely ignorant of what God and Jesus the Christ was and is all about.

Right before public eyes all this was presented. Of course, it would take long searching for most of the public to find any "news" media that would even present it honestly to the American public.

Truth has been deeply buried with the heavy and belligerently complicity of the major American "news"outlets.

To vaguely generalize about great discrimintion and pre-judgements is uninformed. As proved by the "white vote", discrimination and all the rest turned the corner a long time ago. The majority of whites in this country have a general adoration of blacks and, deep empathy for what blacks have suffered. A few blacks try to keep isolated and old atrocities to the forefront so, that hatred stays alive in the hearts of blacks.

Throughout all of mankind's history all kinds of atrocities, (many, absolutely dwarfing America's one time indulgence with the slavery that black Africans practiced amongst themseves) every single race on the globe has committed terrible things including much genocide by Muslim nations.

I think this nation had a very great need for open presentation of the "news" and "facts" and decidedly did not get it. I am 62 years old and have been an avid devotee of all things "news" since I was a child. Nobody had to tell me when "news" became twisted lies.

Hatred by any race towards any other will always hurt those who hate - white, black, Hispanic, oriental - the whole ball of wax. When you go out of the way to keep hatred alive, it will always eventually backfire.

Alan Keyes is a very sharp quick thinking black man of great integrity. He also, is not an "Uncle Tom".

Informed publication of "facts" that are redundently and repeatedly presented and, blatantly ignored by the press in a public eclection IS a moral obligation.
