no rant, just the facts

due to the current financial crisis here in the US, I am suspending my travel/fiber blog to deal with the more important issue of politics

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 were 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.

I can't imagine why anyone would even consider voting McCain. And what if he had a heart attack and Palin became president? y theory is that the "power behind the throne" wouldn't change. THey only need a mouthpiece.

Well, if I suffered from chronic emotional insecurities, selfish and immature, fearful of views I didn't understand, uncertain of myself and my place in the world and needed some assurance that it was okay to stay this way because I'm intimitdated by change and stereotypes define my world...I'd take the lesser candidate. :)
