Wired PR News.com – With 333 electoral votes and counting, Democratic presidential candidate beat out his opponent Republican Senator John McCain, on Tuesday marking the most historical presidential election the United States has ever seen. Shocking the world of politics, the Senator won over formally Republican dominated states such as Iowa as well as Ohio.
The win for the first black President of the United States is an astonishing moment for many who have expressed that they never expected to see history made in this fashion during their lifetime in a country that endured years of legalized slavery and the oppression of different groups. For many, it demonstrates how far the country has come in regards to race and social relations.
As quoted by Jim Blackwell from the Tarant County LOC, a Dallas civil rights organization “So many people, especially minorities in this country, can truly dream now. A black child can sit in his or her classroom tomorrow and say I’m going to be the next president of the United States and mean it.”
