I cant argue with most of what you said...but I used to be able to jump! Also, white people arent the loudest...I don't think it was about about voting for the black dude as it was voting for the dude that was way better than McCain...I voted for Obama but I also would have voted for Bill...I mean Hillary.

Speaking for myself, I did not vote for a minority. I voted for a Constitutional Lawyer who had show leadership, management skills and most of all personal integrity.

But most of all I voted for a man that I could use as an example of character for my (white) children.

Minority? Race? I don't give a crap.

Wait. So the change Obama was talking about was having a black guy as president? And thus he needs to appoint blacks into his admin? I thought Obama was against affirmative action?

Is America still so backwards that it actually based votes on race? Voting for a black because he is black, is as bad as not voting for someone because they are black or a woman.

We voted for him because we thought he was going to be a better president than McCain (I hope).

Who honestly voted for him, at least on these threads, because of his ethnicity?

P.S. you forgot their taste in women, too.

Wow. First, clearly not all of his administration is white. Second, with all these stereotypes being thrown around I'm beginning to suspect that there's a prejudice problem right here in this thread.

Why are trying to assign superstition to his cabinet selection. There is the possibility that he chose those most eligable and agreeable to his campaign.

I'm confused why him being black is a problem. It is completely possible that a president & cabinet do not all have to be one race.

By not electing black or non caucasian's into his cabinet still does not change the fact that the "historical victory" was simply that a black man was voted in as president.

I would like to think he is solely picking the most qualified that fit into his game plan. Kind of like the reason I would think most people voted for him, not because he is black. one more for good measure.

I still think he's unqualified to be our president.... Why again is Biden not the president & Obama the VP? btw, i really don't like biden either, but at least the dudes got more experience. Oh yeah, for voters like Mantis.... duh

u guys are misreading this shit and a tad too fired up...

the question is, is it a coincidence that more than 90% of the administration is white? are there really no qualifications in "minorities"?

i did not vote for obama at all, not coz he's white or black or green. but i was assuming he'd give "minorities" a chance unlike other presidents, which could make his presidency really "historical"

I want to see the most qualified person for each job, if it means a cabinet full of white men then so be it. I believe Obama is picking the best people for the job.
