I am very concerned that Barack Obama may become our president. He has shown several times his ignorance when it comes to international affairs. But, the thing that probably bothers me the most is his religious affiliations that are not really religious, they are anti-American. I do not want our first black president to be someone who believes in black supremacy and who continues to be bitter over the problems of the past and who hates America.

The church where Barack Obama sat for 20 years, with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright as his pastor, is believed by some to be the most strong "black liberation theology" church in the U.S. Many black people have moved on. They realize they aren't "black Americans," they are Americans! They have moved on and have taken advantage of what we have tried to do in this country over the last 40 years. I want a true American for president.
