  •  How can Barack Obama lift perceptions (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    when there's a struggle within the black community to even consider him a black american in the first place?

    Who is deciding this stuff?  

    There are major problems with the Obama candidacy, and some of those (unfortunately, but realistically) relate to race.  White democrats should not support Obama outloud (some of us are too familiar with what happens when it comes to 'in practice' versus that 'out loud') anointing him The Great Black Hope, when black Americans haven't done so.  Who's leading who on this?

    Meanwhile, Black democrats should not dismiss Obama out of hand just because his father wasn't the stereotypical sharecropper, and his mama wasn't Afeni Shakur.
