Barack Obama was not elected as America's first post-racial or first black president. Obama is America's first revenge president. He was elected by both black and white Americans in hopes of dishing out payback for America's past of racial inequalities and prejudices. Many who elected Obama wanted him to get back at America. They wanted him to take from those who supposedly had been oppressing them and give it to the oppressed. They wanted him to "redistribute the wealth" and redistribute everything else they think was being withheld from them. To this end, Obama has been working ever since his election in 2008.
THE REAL FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT
Some day America will have its real first black president; or rather its first president that happens to be black. This president will not spend years trying to divide people while using false platitudes of making people "pay their fair share" but rather this real first black president will use his or her time in that honorable yet humbling office to highlight that before any American is any pigment of skin or any hyphenated group, every one of us is part of this one great nation. This first black president will not spend time trying to exact revenge (wink, wink) on certain classes or colors of Americans, but rather will spend time highlighting the fact that America really is the land of opportunity.
