Unfortunately, I believe this election has pushed the improvement made in race relations back 60 years.

But, it's also funny how as soon as an African American leaves the Liberal, "Pay me now!" plantation, they're labelled an Uncle Tom.

Perhaps. Personally, once the leader of the nation is black, it isn't clear to me why there is any need for affirmative action, preferences, and set-asides. If O wins, he becomes "The Man" in the sense it was used in the 60s. There is no longer a limit to what a black person can accomplish other than his own initiative.

Of course, it won't play that way. Too many votes too easily bought.

With different time frames, 20, 30...50 years, I've heard this same lament here at FR since we first became aware of rev. Wright. The naivete of people as to what the state of race relations were really like before Obama is astounding. Folks who thought, or think, that Wright et al are an anomaly had (have) their heads where the sun don't shine!
