From the friend of a friend, these thoughts on racism:
What if John McCain were a former president of the Harvard Law Review? What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?
What if McCain were still married to the first woman he said ‘I do’ to? What if Obama were the candidate who left his first wife after she was disabled and no longer measured up to his standards?
What if Michelle Obama had not only became addicted to pain killers, but acquired them illegally through her charitable organization? What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?
What if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five? What if McCain were a charismatic, eloquent speaker?
This is what unexamined racism does. When there’s a color difference, it rationalizes and minimizes positive qualities in one candidate and de-emphasizes negative qualities in another.
America is facing historic debt, two wars, a world that’s grown to distrust us, a tottering health care system, a weakened dollar, all-time high prison population, mortgage crisis, bank foreclosures, etc. You are the Boss… which team would you hire?
