Again, if you get why this is historic, you know nothing about the history of our nation.
Oh, I believe I do.
Your country abolished slavery long before most other countries (but long after the British Empire did it). Your black minority had second-level citizen status when Germany was busy burning down Jewish homes and killing their inhabitants. And you had special civil rights laws at a time when most countries in the world still practiced open racism as a law.
It is the contents of one's character that counts, not skin colour.
Abraham Lincoln probably knew this. Martin Luther King knew it. It's one principle of the Republican party.
The president has always been a white guy. Black people and women were not even able to vote initially in the history of this country.
Until 1919 women were not allowed to vote in most countries. Blacks could already vote in the US since the 1860s which is why the Democrats came up with lots of laws making it difficult or impossible for blacks to vote.
It's historic and important for us all on how we have grown as a nation. It shows how opportunty is extended to everyone is this country who is willing to work for it.
And whomever the media support. I already knew the opportunity bit.
If you don't get that, you don't get America
I never really "got" those in America that find skin colour important for _any_ reason.
