Considering the fact that merely 40 years ago there was still a huge racial divide in America; electing Barack Obama president is an unparalleled milestone for this country. A black man as president is something that Im sure few thought possible all of those years ago. But now it is.
It is a huge step for Americans to finally be able to overcome a long shameful period of our history and take a step away from it because the most powerful man in the world is no longer an old white guy for the first time ever. African Americans have a strong sense of pride about this but I feel all Americans should. A huge part of racism can be put to rest because the majority of Amercians voted for Obama and now, like it or not, he is the leader of the free world.
