Dear Mr. Obama

Dear Mr. Obama,

First of all, congratulations on winning the presidential election. I knew you could do it.
Although I was unable to vote this year, being only 16 years old, I supported you like many others in my high school. Some of my friends were genuine in their support but others only showed support because you are a Black man. I'm sure that many of the 95% of Black voters did the same.
During your Presidency, I hope that your race does not have a major affect on your decisions. I hope that you become a great enough President so that if you decide to run again, your race will not be a major reason to re-elect you.
