    As a gay man I'll reserve judgment until we can say "Yes we did."

    LOL, good point. My sexuality is still heavily discriminated against, but as a black man this is a pleasant surprise. Before Obama even announced his bid, I've said many times that I wouldn't see a black president in my lifetime. Needless to say I'm glad I've been proven wrong.

    I really hope this message resonates with blacks in the forgotten sectors of society, black kids who think their only options are to sell drugs or play basketball.

    Depends on the tone, in the right context I would've agreed with you. Perhaps your wording (as they often do when you talk about minorities) had a condescending tone.

    I wasn't saying it to be funny, the black community is full of crabs in a barrell who not only shun success in themselves, but in others.

    I had a friend who was constantly beat up FOR GETTING GOOD GRADES. I hope Obama's presidency shifts attitudes in the black community about what can be achieved because he started out like many of us do, no dad, welfare, modest beginnings.
