Watching the Obama speech last night I noticed that Obama and the youngest daughter approached the stage from the right wearing black, and the oldest daughter and his wife approached from the left wearing red and red/black. Is there any meaning in the color of clothing they were wearing?

hi there, tdavis.. you're quite sharp to have noticed something like that and i think that although you may be part of a minority, you are not alone in your observation.. i stumbled upon something in the internet about obama's alleged alliance with a certain 'group'.. i am yet to find out the truth about it and it is somewhat related to the colors red and black.. "and the Truth shall set you free.." happy myLotting! :)

Hi, dreamleaper, I could not tell for sure, and I have not listened to Obama's speech a second time. No one has mentioned it, and i am old and my hearing is not always good, but during his speech, I could swear that he made the statement, and "my people", it was only several min. into the speech and he was talking about the historical meaning of his election. Was I hearing things or was that there?

It was there. I noticed it too and it came to my mind which people is he really talking about. I hope he is talking about Americans and not about some other nationality or religious affiliation, etc., but time will tell.

That's easy enough to find out; the transcript is on NPR at: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=94087570. I scanned the transcript and there is no sentence in which President Elect Obama says "my people." Sorry. It's there in black and white for anyone to see.

I can't believe that someone would make something out of the colors the Obama's chose to wear. lol Are we to hear this type of thing for the next four years? I hope not. I thought they all looked wonderful; behaved graciously and stood proud. And I am proud of them.

Remember, Obama's statement about, "Just words, Just speeches", we tend to judge people by ourselves. If Obama feels that way about politicians, words and speeches, how are we to view his. Colors are important if they are used to convey a message. Red ties, power ties. Additionally, Black/Green and red, were used to represent, the people, the struggle and their blood. The United Farm workers used colors to represent, the struggle, peoples blood and the hope. Yes, sometimes colors have meanings that are used to convey a message, and idea's. Obama himself said to question him, to communicate. So i am asking, you can change the subject, but be honest answer the question or say you don't know. Now who does know?

...as to the next four years.. we'd have to go far to exceed the day after day hammering done by the media (and colleges and universities) over the past eight years..

tdavis...oh, you mean like the way Jerry Falwell used colors; "purple is a gay color." I never could figure that one out; so if purple is a gay color, then why do churches put a purple robe over the cross at Easter? What exactly do they mean by doing that? Hmmmm.....

Obama wore black. His youngest daughter wore black. The older daughter and mother wore black and red. I think it means something..maybe Black Power. Why would all of them have to wear that much black?

Last Christmas my family planned a group photo. When we got together we asked hey what color should we wear, and the guys decided on black and the girls decided on red. Ewwwwww what does it mean. If you figure it out let me know. I want to know the secret meaning of our family photo.
