Obamarama: The Hidden Side of the Campaign

May 14, 2008

Notice I haven’t had an Obamarama entry in a while? Well, it will be a while before you see another one.
I saw this article in the Washington Post. I stopped to ponder why Obama campaign has been downplaying this aspect of the work of building support for him. Hearing about these racist attitudes probably embarasses many white people; poor things, how could they not know… And for sure, the campaign probably doesn’t want to emphasize any opposition to Obama at this point. This is one that is certain to feed a whole nedder media frenzy. Enough of those I say.
For those white folks who are still uncommitted, many are wondering whether they are doing the US a disservice by voting for Obama; after all, what reasonable hardworking, law-abiding American [read white] wants to upset the applecart and participate in doing something that would assuage their guilt but create social unrest?
