The World Is Watching You

Hantu Laut

The US Presidential Election is coming to a close.The world would know who would be the next US President in less than 24 hours.Would the Republican continue to rule and carry on their belligerent policies.In it eight years of rule they have given America two things, wars and a wrecked economy.

After two years of campaigning Barrack Obama looks set to be the first black president.Will he be President ? It's a question on every one's mind.If he won, would he be able to survive full term of his presidency or be assassinated by some mad white supremacist ?

He has, against all odds, defeated Hillary Clinton in the Democratic party nomination and have been leading in opinion polls in the presidential run.The true test is now, whether he would get the support to win this race from the predominantly white population, or it was just lip service, and they would choose John McCain in spite of his constrains in age and intellectual capacity and with a running mate,a beauty queen and a moose hunter, picked out of the blue and one which looks more like an aging supermodel than someone whom you think can run the White House if McCain drops dead while being President.

This will be a test for American whites whether they have shed their racial prejudices against coloured people and a dream come true for Martin Luther King of his "I have a dream" if Obama should win the election.Although Obama is half white, in America he is considered black.

There are indications that McCain is closing in some of the states but Obama is holding his position and made some gains in some other states.At time of writing McCain is leading in predominantly white states of Kentucky and Indiana and are set to win these two states.

If war and the economy are the main concern of the voters than Obama would probably have a better chance of winning the race.

Will racial prejudices continue to prevail or will it be a new dawn for America ?

If white's racism prevails than McCain will win the election.

The world is watching you. America!
