*How Racism Works** by Kelvin LaFond**
What if John McCain were a former president of the Harvard Law Review? What
if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of hisgraduating 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 charitableorganization?
What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard? What if Obama were a member of
the 'Keating 5'? What if McCain was acharismatic, 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.*
