    of saying that one can not look at what someone says about themselves individually is a confusing as an argument.

    Its also strange to say a public figure, because of his race, cannot be treated as other public figures have been treated, again especially where

    There are substantive issues with race to be addressed. This doesn't strike me as one of them. If the Tea Party says something racist, fine. If someone here says something racist or reinforces a racist structure, fine. But what we have here it seems is President Obama being  treated as an individual on its own terms as such.

    That's the best we should hope for with race, isn't it?
