The headline read "Obama is lacking support of whites" (April 24, Page A-1). Let's see now, the son of an African man and a Native American woman, Crispus Attucks, on March 5, 1770, became the first man to die for America's freedom in the Boston Massacre. So, here we are poised again to maybe see another man born to an African man and American woman make history by becoming the first black man to become president. Are we ready for this after 230 years? I would love to see it. I am a 100-percent-disabled American combat paratrooper.
