    ...as evidenced by the locked Michelle Obama thread, is that all the racial cards will finally be put on the table in this country. No under-your-breath slurs or fake tolerance. The racists are so damn worried about a black man in the White House that they are going to lay it all out there and we'll get to see exactly who they are.

    I just don't understand why Michelle Obama is hating on this guy:


    And I don't know about the "us versus them" argument. There are plenty of good honest reasons to support McCain. But it does seem some people never got the word that Jim Crow is dead. Of course, I've probably had a different life experience from them, and for that point, people that were directly affected by racism as well.
    We were going to get to this point in our country eventually. You see it in the changing views of race by generations born since the 1960s.

    Anybody besides me concerned about media descriptions of Obama as black?

    He, like Tiger Woods, is of a mixed-race heritage.

    And he is most accurately described, it seems to me, as African American.
