Voting for Obama for “color” solidarity

I believe it’s wrong for a Euro-American to reject Obama simply because he is Afrikan in appearance. I cannot hypocritically then turn around and accept him on the same grounds. Afrikan people, if they are going to vote in this state at all, should vote for Obama because they believe that he is the best candidate. Or to be fair, McCain if they think he is. And likewise, those of us who do not believe in the US presidency at all should stand aside. At all times, votes should be votes or abstentions of conscience and consciousness, not color. And all such choices given that framework should be respected within the field of political expression.
