The First Race Card Nobel Peace Prize Get this, as Barack Obama appears to be ready to escalate the War on Afghanistan, he is getting the Nobel Peace Prize? The headlines say it all! It is big news in Chicago and around the world. News outlets are reporting on how, Obama gets reward for world view - BBC News, Obama Strikes Gold - The Washington Post, The Nobel Prize, and Europeans' Views of America. President Barack Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples," the Norwegian Nobel Committee said, citing his outreach to the Muslim world and attempts to curb nuclear proliferation. Obama wins has drawn mixed reviews - Reuters. OK, so I'm reading Andrew Sullivan's All Over The World post in which he writes, This president has done a huge amount to bring race relations in this country to a different place." AAPP: I'm like what world is he in? What has this guy been smokin' For most black Americans, race/color relations in this country is worst since Barack Obama became President. Candidly, I'm with so many Americans on this one. I'm wondering what did President Barack Obama do to win the Nobel Prize. What did he really do? Did he really win because he is the first black to win the Presidency of the United States? If so, this will be the first "Race Card-Nobel Prize." Barack has not solved the color arousal problem in America, Stopped the War on Afghanistan, or brought Peace to the Middle East, So... What did Obama do to get the Nobel Peace Prize? As reported by the Huffington post, The stunning choice made Obama the third sitting U.S. president to win the Nobel Peace Prize and shocked Nobel observers because Obama took office less than two weeks before the Feb. 1 nomination deadline. Obama's name had been mentioned in speculation before the award but many Nobel watchers believed it was too early to award the president. What do you think?
