    • That's amazing! It proves that anyone can be a success. He got up, did stuff, and made his dreams come true instead of just holding up the race card and whining.

    • That just goes to show that if you want something bad enough and work hard you can accomplish anything and be everything you want to be. Not expect it to be handed to you.

    • He did serve in congress as a republican. Democrats didn't have a African American in congress until 1937. Makes you wonder

    • Yes Lenny1 we should focus on our history. learn from it and celebrate it. Not try to erase it, hide it or sweep it under the carpet like these "oh my feelings are hurt" pussies we've got running around these days.
