The next time some disingenuous commentator starts bemoaning the fact that 60% of “racist” whites are not voting for Obama, I hope someone points out that a much larger percentage, around 90%, of blacks are voting for for him and as such are not voting for the white woman, who, together with her husband, has done more for for the African American community than, just about any politician since the 60's.
Of course nobody will point out that the far more significant evidence of racial bias on the part part of the non-white community might be suggestive of a bit of black racism, to say such a thing would be viewed as political heresy.
I hold no brief for Hillary Clinton, other than that I admire her tenacity, and would like to see a woman win. However, she and her supporters deserve fair treatment, meanwhile , a torch of truth needs to be shone upon the Obama campaign, and, at present neither is happening.
If it is racist for 60% of whites not to vote for a black man, surely it is far more so when 90% of blacks do!
If, as seems very likely, Barack Obama is chosen as the Democratic candidate for president, this will certainly not be a result which transcends race, as many of his worshipers will rush to declare it, and many a Clinton supporter will have some justification in feeling robbed.
