A break from my Metaphysics homework:

An interesting "what if?" scenario (well, interesting to me):

What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?

What if Obama were the candidate who was unfaithful and 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 Obama were a member of the Keating-5?

If these questions reflected reality, do you really believe Obama would be where he is now?

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.

Which team would you hire?
With America facing historic debt, 2 wars, stumbling health care, a weakened dollar, all-time high prison population, mortgage crises, bank foreclosures, etc.
