You know he is only half black the other half of him is white? We have a bi-racial president elect not a black president. So if you look at other being racist for not wanting a black president don't you in turn have to acknowledge and accept his white side- the side that raised him and taught him many of the values that he holds and displays to the world? I think we all have to acknowledge and accept who we are and what we are not matter what color, race, etc. But we all must be truthful and not just show or acknowledge what is best for me today. I know we can define yourself the way we want and we can be black, white, mixed, Africian American, German American, Hispanic Americans, etc. But at the end of the day we have to be Americans and do what is best of America!!!
