Although Johnson had given the maximum $2,300 primary contribution to Clinton's leading rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., the basketball legend turned entrepreneur said he is endorsing Clinton because of her "unique understanding of the domestic and international issues" and because she "has the experience and knowledge to help lead our country and get us to a better place."

Interesting that many of Los Angeles'Black power players were in attendance. Wonder if they all are supporting Clinton...

I think it's ashame when some of us forget where we come from. Obama is a well educated man, that just happened to be black. Magic Johnson needs to remember a time when black ball players weren't allowed to play next to white players,but thank god someone had a dream. If we can't believe in ourselves then who will. Someone believed and encouraged him when he was a youth striving to be a professional basketball player. At the end of the day I don't feel like any of these canidates bring decades of exprience to the table so If we are willing to give other canidates the benifit of the doubt why can't we give Obama the benifit of the doubt.

I honestly feel that the situation about Obama running for President should not be a race issue; however, I feel he needs all the support "we" can give him. We as a people "need" to support him and wish him well.

Hey, Obama I am rooting for ya! Good Luck!

I support Senator Clinton. It's good to see she has support from high profile African Americans. She and her husband President Clinton have always done a great deal for black people and the poor. More women, blacks and hispanics were appointed by President Clinton than any other President and they've been civil right's advocates since the 60's. The economy was also really good in the 90's and under the Clinton administration the black community did well under new bills that were passed solely for the betterment of the black community and for striving black men and women. Here is a link to read some of what was accomplished under the Clinton administration specifically for African-Americans:
