    Well she does have a history  . .

    But at the very least it was demeaning to Obama. This is an extremely accomplished man by any standard.

    She also infers that it's easier for an African-American man to be elected to public office than a white woman. If that's so, I wonder why there haven't been more.

    I think part of the problem with white folks, is they don't recognize when they're being racist.

      True facts. People think that as long you're not burning crosses and spitting on people you don't qualify as racist, when the truth is that racism is insidious in our culture and white privilege is just as invisible as it ever was.

      Oh yeah, Sen. Obama is so lucky to be a black man. Black men just ride the wave of liberal guilt to national office all the time-- oh wait. He's only the THIRD black senator since Reconstruction.

      If its easier for and African American male than a white woman, why are there 16 female Senators and one African American?
