And it was the 15th amendment that gave the African Americans the right to vote..

    13th-Slaves became Free.
    14th- Freed Slaves became Citizens
    15th-Freed Slaves could vote.

    Easier way to remember this as I learned it in the 8th grade:
    13th-Free
    14th-Citizens
    15th-Vote
    Either way, blacks had no right to vote, because of the ridiculous standards that were put up in order for them to vote. Either way you look at it, it's either the women's or the black people's time to shine in politics.

    Now the REAL question is what would we get out of having a black president? (when I say "we", I mean people of color) I seen this thing on BET asking what's in it for us. I normally don't watch BET, but I'm going to watch that Obama special this week. When I find out times and listings, I'll share with the class, LOL.

Women could NOT vote so.....yea.

    As for the topic:

    A black man can run the country just as well as a white man can.
    Amendment 15 - Race No Bar to Vote. Ratified 2/3/1870. History

    1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.

    here's your proof.

    And where did you get this info?? It's not really proof if I don't have tangible evidence. Gimme a link or somethin'! And at any rate, this is a discussion about "what if," not "what happened".

    Meh, I'd actually prefer a black guy for President over a woman. Could be chauvinistic, maybe not. I think we give women in America enough power as is. Can't even so much as push one without getting arrested. Plus, Do we even need another Clinton in office? Not so sure......... But, In the end, I'll go for the one who'll legalize marijuana. Just loves me herbs. heh heh heh.

    On a serious note though, I don't think Obama would legalize marijuana. Just 'cuz he's black, that doesn't mean he supports our habits; if ya catch my drift.

    I personally wouldn't mind havin' another Clinton in office. Bill was awesome! But I think my vote is gonna rest with Obama, simply because you're right, TaurusDemon. Women DO have a substantial amount of power here in the US, whether they think so or not. In most states--this one especially--most child custody cases are won by the woman. Even if the male is better off financially and mentally. And like you said, you can't even push a lady without gettin' arrested these days.

    Then you get these women who think it's okay to use your words against you--even twist them up a bit--just to get thier way in the legal system. If you try to prove her wrong, you're wrong by default. Also--Yeah, I know I can go on forever--a woman can go and get food stamps, no problem; with or without child. But if I go to the government center and ask to be put on food stamps, because I have a son on top of my bills, rent and debt; they'd laugh at me and say get a better job. Good thing for me, I get paid more than they do, LOL.

    Re: What would happen if the United States elected a Black President?

    I'm fine with a black president. As long as he is well educated and has what I consider to be good morals. Black people can be just as smart as white people its just that our sterotype of a black person comes from rap which makes them look like idiots in the political area. As for obama, I'm not behind him and I'm not old enough to vote yet but if I was it wouldn't be for him.

    All you need to do is go to Google and type in Amendments and it will give you multiple links to the Amendment's specifically.

    Re: What would happen if the United States elected a Black President?

    Plain and simple Obama had a good chance of becoming president. If he does become president I do see him doing good for our healthcare and education. Other then that, he has no chance in office. Honestly he may make things a bit worst in other important departments. And about Obama legalizing marijuana. He's an "Uncle Tom." He isn't going to legalize it because he doesn't believe in it. Now if a bill were to pass and it came down to Obama's decision, I think he may legalize it for medical use only. Any president (except for Bush) would tell you that marijuana as a medical use would not be a bad idea. Only because of the experiments and tests ran on clinically ill patients and use of marijuana.
