Kwenye hotuba hiyo iliyokuwa imejaa hisia na simanzi, Rais Obama amewataka Wamarekani kulinda demokrasia yao.
Kuhusu masuala ya rangi kwenye hotuba yake Obama amesema: After my election, there was talk of a post-racial America. Such a vision, however well-intended, was never realistic. For race remains a potent and often divisive force in our society. I’ve lived long enough to know that race relations are better than they were 10, or 20, or 30 years ago
Amewataka Wamarekani wa kila kundi kufikiria mambo kwa mtazamo wa kila mmoja na kuwataka wasikilizane. Wafuasi wake walisikika wakipiga kelele ‘miaka mine tena’ lakini kwa tabasamu akawajibu ‘siwezi kufanya hivyo.’

Kwenye hotuba hiyo, Obama amemuelezea mkewe Michelle: Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, girl of the South Side, for the past 25 years, you’ve been not only my wife and mother of my children, you have been my best friend. You took on a role you didn’t ask for and you made it your own with grace and grit and style and good humour. You made the White House a place that belongs to everybody.
Mastaa wengi wa Marekani wameonesha kumlilia Obama kupitia mitandao ya kijamii na kumpongeza kwa utawala wake. Chini ni miongoni mwao:
