A More Perfect Union

Barack Obama made a brilliant speech the other day about race in America. Not the presidential competition kind, but that to do with the colour that Americans have been struggling to gain moral footing over for the past two centuries. The media and the American people have been wondering how much race would come into play in this election and I'm quite pleased that the man himself was first to take the stage in a statement that clarified our best and worst thoughts that all Americans, like it or not, maintain about the colour of each others' skin.

In case you didn't know, Obama was prompted to take this stand after his preacher made a televised sermon damning America for its narrow views of the races held within.

Here's Obama's writted speech as well as CNN's recording of it from Obama's website. With this speech I do see a chance for change.
