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.

Ohhhh I like this one too!!!

Are you involved in any of the Columbus Obama campaigns? Cause I'm thinking about doing some volunteering.

Obama has several cities apart of GA for Obama. McCain has nothing in GA.

Not planning on it as I don't really have the available time coming up to me, but I will be at the DNC headquarters on election night I hope!

I don't believe the polls are that close. It has to be another media lie. They lied to us about everything else, why not this? The mainstream media have a serious stake in seeing a rerun of Bush in the WH.

I've been saying from the beginning that race would be *the* deciding factor in this election.
