While addressing the NAACP in Cincinnati, Ohio, New York governor David Paterson suggested that “the defeat of Senator Obama by Senator McCain in the presidential contest would be a victory for racism.” You can find the story here. Governor Paterson, doesn’t that also suggest that voters who don’t support Senator Obama are racist? Come on! Do you really think that the citizens of this country are ignorant enough to only vote based on color and not on policy? If that isn’t enough from the great state of New York, their “distinguished” newspaper The New York Times has refused to in turn publish an op-ed piece for Senator McCain as they have done with Senator Barak Obama. You can link to that op-ed piece via my wife’s blog here.
New York, what gives?

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Lord, let it be so for ALL people.

If that could only be accomplished. But, alas it won’t. For we know that as long as sin is in the world people will be prideful. Racism is a very prideful character flaw. Only through the saving knowledge of Christ can you love all people, regardless of color.
I will check out your site.

So many Democrats feel that the Republicans have no rational chance at victory so the only Republican hope for victory (in their eyes) is for Republicans to fall back on racism and exploit it in their communities. Sadly it is politics at its worst. On the other hand there are many who will not vote for Obama because of his color.
Personally, I would not count Hillary out until Obama receives the nomination from the Democratic party – I put nothing past the Clinton’s.
