Post Race & Racism
David Gergen brought this up tonight. I have been feeling nervous about this for some time now. If Obama was white this race would be over with..... and now with the ugliness of Palin and McCain :o

why do Rep. always play on folks fear. Can they not talk about the real issues facing america. Does tina Fey not know that BO was 8 when Ayers did his bombing and since when does living in the same neighborhood make you a terrorists :shock:

I would like to think that america today was the land of MLK's I Have A Dream Speech. When are we going to get there?

I could care less what variation of the thousands of skin tones we have in this country, nor the ethnic background of the person running for office is.

I care about their policies, their ideology, their record.

I would happily vote for a black man, a woman, even a martian, if they largely agreed with my own ideology.

If you vote for someone because of their race, you are the same kind of racist as someone that won't vote for someone because of their race.

Can't vote for martians as president. They weren't born in the US.

Unless we get there first and annex it as the 51st State. That's how we did it during the Louisiana purchase!!!!
