He must demand that every voter must not let the dream die.


"I challenge you to have the courage to stand up to the
vote suppressors in the Supreme Court and the state legislatures.
So many Americans like Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King and
Michael Sherwerner gave their lives for your right to vote.
I challenge you to have the courage to stand up to the
vote suppressors in the Supreme Court and the state legislatures.
If, within the next year, every one of you helps three unregistered
citizens register and vote - the dream will live on and the
vote suppressors will lose.
Stand with Medgar, Martin and Michael"

You think he is worried about photo ids? He's getting ready to launch WWIII.

But he's not an idiot, he will pander to the supporters. Supporters that clearly at this point will march to the gates of hell simply because they deem the others even more satanic.

Just like the idiot Republicans voters, unwilling to move on no matter how bad it gets.

You got that right. What do you suppose he is spending more time on right now, tho? Another "race" speech for the ages, or how to avoid WW III?

Personally, I dont think he wanted anything to do with the race aspect of anything. I think he got peppered by the media so constantly that he really didnt have much of a choice. If he gets too into the race aspect of things, that means theres a chance some rogue journalist may actually do their freakin job and dig into some facts on poverty.

Better to just focus on keeping the banks happy. And the banks dont make money on anything else like they do war, so who knows.

One things for sure, institutions in this country are in absolute collapse.

I disagree. He brings up race anytime it will further his agenda. He carries a deck of 52 race cards. The speech he gives Wed is very important to him because he sees himself as a black activist first and foremost. He is the reason race relations have taken 3 steps back in the last few years. Am sure you';ve seen the recent polls about how blacks and whites view race relations. A lot worse than before Obama took ofc.

A challenge to all....

Count how many times he says ":I" and "me": tomorrow. It's always about him. Even when he attended the HI Senator's funeral, he spoke of himself more than the guy he was eulogizing.

All depends on who you are polling. Younger people are hanging out and dating with each other more than at anytime in history here.

Prob just boomers causing a media circus as usual.

What Obama needs to speak out about is "black youth violence" and what needs to be done to stop it. But he won't - he picks and choses his topics expecially when it comes to black violence.

All education is good, regardless of color
All crime is bad, regardless of color

obviously, the only wa y you can learn to be colorblind is to have a doctor remove your eyes
