There can be no greater shame on a country than to disrespect the office of the president of the United States. Never in U.S. history has a man been put under such a microscope where the only germs found active and dangerous are those called the GOP.

Since Barack Obama's election, racist remarks, death threats, character killers and such are no way to summarize the president of the world. White Americans must realize they are no longer a majority and it's time we take that step toward an evolving society where change must come for America to work for all Americans.

The GOP has made no secret about this matter, so I write freely about it toward them. The GOP has fought every effort the president has set, not because they were bad ideas, but because he is black and has no place in the White  House. Moreover, the GOP displays hostilities toward people of color in other nations as well.

If America is to lead the world, it must first lead itself.
