I hope Obama Wins

Nov 5, 2008

The US presidential elections is all about race, many people are saying. Barack Obama, the first black who have a shot at being the 44th president of the United States of America, may just prove that it is so. Despite the prejudices against blacks, or any people of color for that matter, throughout history, this elections is unfolding to be very interesting and may prove to be the great equalizer. Will America final elect a black president? Will people finally ignore the color of one's skin and weigh the future of their country based on the candidate's individual qualifications? We will know in several hours.
I hope Obama wins. Sabi ni Howie Severino, "because of both his skin color and upbringing, Obama may have a natural empathy towards Asian minorities in America". So, sa dami ng Filipinos in America, will this be a good thing for us? Okay, thats just wishful thinking for us pero we can wish.

Update: I came back from lunch and America has a new president! Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States of America. He is the first African-American to hold the highest office. John McCain already conceded his defeat.
