This is where we are right now. It’s a racial stalemate we’ve been stuck in for years. Contrary to the claims of some of my critics, black and white, I’ve never been so naive as to believe that we can get beyond our racial divisions in a single election cycle, or with a single candidacy – particularly a candidacy as imperfect as my own.

But I have asserted the firm conviction – a conviction rooted in my faith in God and my faith in the American people – that working together we can move beyond some of our old racial wounds, and that, in fact, we have no choice if we are to continue on the path of a more perfect union.

I can’t remember in my whole life a single person embodying so many hopes. Good luck M. Barack Obama. Good luck M. President.
