16. Everytime some one says the word boy, and Obama in a sentence people will go wild.
When they say he's of muslim heritage...they'll cry foul.
If someone says he's good at sports they'll be called a troll.
If someone says he's a great orator they'll go ballistic.
If they say he loves his wife they'll comment on the fact that blacks have families too...

It's gonna be cute.
