Barack Obama

  1. 1. Barack Obama by Patrick and Christopher
  2. 2. Barack Obama as president <ul><li>Barack Obama was declared president elect on November 4 th 2008 and will take presidency from George bush on January 20 th 2008 where he will become the first black president which is monumental occasion in America for a long time in American history black people have not even had the same rights as white people, and in some states they are still prejudice against black and is dangerous for black people to live in such places. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The “freedom” of the slaves <ul><li>The emancipation, is the proclamation that freed slaves but many people where freed, into unfair societies where white people had superior rights to black people, and in most states they would have to drink out of separate water fountains change in separate changing rooms, and anything where the two sets of people where together it would seem have to do everything in worse, and separate conditions. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Black people, white people same rights <ul><li>In 1955 something called the African-American civil rights movement was a movement designed to stop all racial discrimination of all African-American people. There where 4 major people leading this movement they are Martin Luther King JR, W.E.B (William Edward Burghart) Du Bois, Malcolm X and Rosa Parks these four people could be seen as the people who gave Barack Obama presidency, because if those four people and the many black protesters and supporters hadn't made this movement there would possibly still be white supremacy in America. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Black support in America <ul><li>It is said that most of the black population voted for Barack Obama even people who didn’t normally vote supposedly came out to vote that is how monumental this latest vote was. There where many problems facing Barack Obama first of all he is black and there are more white people (but not many) than black people and some of those are still prejudice. Another problem was that he was quite inexperienced compared to other presidents he has only hold major office since 2005 which is another reason for him not being voted. But still he managed to get a landslide election to him, winning Barack Obama the election. </li></ul>
