I found myself thinking about this quick entry by Eugene Kane of the Journal Sentinel here in Milwaukee. It mentions two articles I had read pertaining to racism and the upcoming presidential election. The Left is already trotting out excuses that if Obama doesn't win it is because of racism. Not his platform, not his inexperience, not his inability to unite people, not because he hasn't changed a single thing in his whole political career, but because white people won't vote for him.
There may be some truth to this. It appears union workers may not vote for him because of the color of his skin. Those unions that the Democrats keep counting on may not vote for their guy.
But should Obama win, it will be because of racism as well. Many black voters turned out in the primaries to cast a ballot for him and they may turn out and vote for him this fall just because he is black. Or in other words, because McCain is white.
Sounds, smells, and looks like racism to me.
Eugene is right when he says racism will play a part in this election no matter who wins.
