    President Obama is an inspiration worldwide. I was touched by this wonderful men and I believed he, as a president, will unify this beautiful country. It doesn't matter if you are Black, Latino, Asian or White....we all are AMERICANS. I love USA and more than ever I am very proud to be an american!!!!

    African-Americans are about 15% of America's population. What other counties have elected a minority to their highest office?
