I'm all for racial equality here in the United States. I support it wholeheartedly. I am, however, disgusted that President Obama -- merely because of the color of his skin -- is being compared to Martin Luther King Jr. as an outright hero in this country. Obama and King are two VERY different men.
I respect King for all that he said and did for civil rights. He was a good man. With a great vision. Obama on the other hand, has done nothing of equal comparison to King. Not even close. And his short-sighted vision is bankrupting this country.
It's a shame that so many people STILL cannot look beyond the color of a person's skin. Black, white, who cares. It is the personality and actions of a man that make him great.... not the color of his skin or the office he holds.
We live in such a hypocritical country. .... [sigh]
