Obama is asking all Americans to take the day off and bring our economy to a grinding halt so that you can elect him President.
In this email plea that Obama has sent out he is also asking you to elect him for President because he is black. Think about it. Would there be any historical significance if Obama were white and elected President? NO! The only historical significance to electing Obama President is that he would be our first black President. That's it! So actually Obama is asking you to make history and elect him as the first black President. That's a vote based upon race which would make that a racist vote.
