A co-worker of mine sent me this. It came from our local newspaper…
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 was 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.

This election is so ugly. These folks work so hard to tear someone down because it fits their agenda, then turn around and are just as hypocritical as they want to be. I don’t know how you feel, but if I were a woman I would take great offense to them selecting Palin. They had absolutely no intentions whatsoever of selecting a female VP candidate, then once they start seeing Obama/Biden growing in popularity they go pull some rabbit out the hat as a last resort.
