What does a black candidate mean for black students?

In district's across the country, including in Nashville where I am based, schools are becoming more segregated and school boards and trying to figure out how to balance the desire for diversity with the ability to provide a good education.
Seattle columnist Jerry Large offers some thought about how the nomination of Barack Obama intersects with the resegregation trend in Seattle schools.
If Obama becomes President do you think black public school students will be better off? Why?

If that happens black youth would have the biggest role model in history, after Martin Luther King.
