What Obama can do for America?

In my opinion, becoming the first Black President of the United States speaks loudly and exemplifies towards other nations that we condemn slavery, and the negative laws that propagated enslavement. Obama’s presidency, will not only affirm, but solidifies those States apologizing for their participation in slavery. This would be a concrete sign and declaration that America has begun the reconcillation towards a unity for all people. I believe that an Obama presidency would truly unite the message that was so eloquently penned in our Constitution that “all men are created equal.” Obama message will unite Americans concerns and common issues, such as the war in Iraq, our beleaguered economy and affordable health care for all Americans.

Some may say, is America ready for a Black President? My response to that question is was America ready for the first Black Baseball Player to enter the major leagues? The right person took on the challenge, named Jackie Robinson. Was corporate America ready for Black CEOs running multinational corporations? The right people came along and brought prosperity to these Corporations such as Aetna, American Express and Time Warner. The right people took on the challenges they were Kenneth Chenault, Ron Williams and Richard Parsons. Obama is the right person for the job at hand. As president, I believe he is the right person to rectify the numerous ills that are plaguing America.
