It's funny. Most black people I talk to don't think Obama has a chance of winning. But I think their reasons are a little biased. Is it that black people in America have difficulty letting go of a struggle that they've identified with for so long? I'll hear things like, "they won't elect a black man president." But he's of mixed blood(believe or not it helps) and he's gotten this far. I definately understand the viewpoint, but I'm curious where it really comes from. Are black people in america ready for change? Being from West Indian background, I always had a different perspective on race in this country. Some of the oppression is self-inflicted. Do we not think Obama can win and why?
