Still though he made history, and because of that he will always be looked at fondly by a majority of African Americans. This is a great day for someone like US Congressman John Lewis, one of the original Freedom Riders. Plus he will always be referenced whenever a country with a White Majority elects a Black man to their highest office.

I think we'll see a second Black President before we ever see a Black VP.

Granted, Obama is not on the same level as Dr. King or Nelson Mandela, but he himself has made history.
