    That's what I admire most about Obama, he doesn't play the race card in those terms. He's more about what's best for all Americans, not what's best for this and that race. That's probably one of the reasons why Jesse Jackson hates him.

    Exactly. I've told a few people in my family that Obama isn't running to be the president of Black America, but of America. And that if they want to hold famous black people accountable then they should start with the black celebrities and the black athletes.
