If Race Does Not Matter

Over the course of last few weeks, I have had these intense discussions with good minded folks who claim that that Race is not a factor in the Democratic race. I beg to differ. It is the elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about until they have to deliver some kind of knockout punch.

Here is an example of the subtle wink (from Illinois Reviews)

Campaigning for her husband today at a historically black college in South Carolina, Michelle Obama told the audience that a Barack Obama win would change the country's image in a big way. "Imagine our family on that inaugural platform," she said. "America will look at itself differently. The world will look at America differently. There is no other candidate who is going to do that for our country. You know that.

This is one big reason why I am not sold on Obama.
