Now we can talk about race

All during the election season, conservatives were claiming that President Obama did nothing to unify the country about issues of race, (as if he were capable of, and was singularly responsible for doing so by himself.) Their claim was that he was the most divisive president in history when in fact that whole regrettable episode served to highlight their own inherent racism, especially within the tea party and Fox news, (which they would both quickly and ineptly deny.)
We’ve come a long way as a country…From this “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty“…to this…“The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.“ I submit to you that we are forced to accept that there is both overt and covert racism in this country. Only then we can finally begin a discussion about something that does in fact exist, rather than desperately trying to deny something that is so powerful, as to insist that it is a figment of our collective imaginations.
