Not Because He is Black, Because He is Capable.

(ThyBlackMan.com) History was made yet again. Yes Black America we have a black President four more years, but what does that really mean? Did we go to the polls simply because he was black, or because he was capable? If the Republicans had presented a stronger campaign would they have been able to sway the vote?

Rather than pull together as a nation more than 30 states opt to secede. Is it really that serious? Did Republicans have that much faith in Mitt Romney?  Or would they have given the Presidency to anyone other than? It makes you wonder how we have come so far as a nation and as a people yet we are still stuck in third gear.

No one is willing to speak to President Obama’s accomplishments, but will open their mouths to sing like a meadow lark about his failures!

Did he not turn around a failing auto industry? Did he not end a war that was  not our own but created in the minds of the Bush administration. (My opinion only) to this day I am yet to or read about a weapon of mass destruction being found. However the destruction of an economy is apparent, relevant and evident! Did he not sign into reform a health care bill that will work not for one party but for all parties? The list goes on!

This President has run the country for the last four years without scandal. He has shown men that being a father, a husband is a good thing. The image portrayed for the black family is a positive one! The image portrayed for a family period is a positive one!

Civil unrest?  Are they truly losing sleep over a decision that was made by more than just an electoral college at the end of the day HE won the popular vote too! By the end of the campaign many Republicans realized their candidate was NOT the right man for the job plain and simple.

Washington get behind your President and support him! Opposers get past your emotions and personal feelings and support him, we will ALL stand to benefit by having him as President for another four years. Rome was not built in a day!

I know many DID NOT vote him in for a second term because he was black; they voted him in because HE IS capable! Now get out the way and let the gentleman do his thang!

    Paula, we wake up everyday to this very dilemma so it is not new. I’m a “baby boomer” who was taught early in life we (Black Men) have to take two steps to every one of our white peers. That means we must be better to forge ahead since we have to work through difficulties other don’t face. To become socially and economically viable we must learn how to beat them at that game. We must learn how to put a positive spin on what we say and do. To do that, we must carry ourselves in a manner that not only deserves respect; but commands respect! When we rise to that level of competence we are empowered to defend ourselves, our contributions, our families, and our community. President Obama epitomizes those qualities and shines brightly, not only to African American, to all men and women of this great nation that if you work hard, follow your dream, and not listen to the negativity of others, you will be successful!

    I love this sentence: No one is willing to speak to President Obama’s accomplishments, but will open their mouths to sing like a meadow lark about his failures! This is exactly White America does to us on the job market. They treat us like mentally handicap people!
