I had dinner the other night with five McCain supporters, or should I say, conservatives who happen to be supporting McCain. (I was the only 'odd man out' so to speak). We talked about the Powell endorsement and none of them mentioned race. Thankfully there are tons of people who hold their beliefs and do not feel the need to bring up the race card. As you sadly mention however, there are people who still do. Thanks for this because I had not seen the article.


Though you might like to see this letter that appeared in the Star-Telegram:

How Racism Works
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 no longer measured up to his standards?
What if Michelle Obama were a wife who 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 were a member of the "Keating 5"? What if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker?
If these questions reflected reality, do you really believe the election numbers would be as close as they are?
This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and minimizes positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative qualities in another when there is a color difference.
