If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept. SOURCENow all my black male readers should thank Ms. Ferraro for this tip. I mean as you have gone about your life, working hard, you may have been stopped for driving while black or maybe passed over for a promotion or a job because of your skin color. You may look around at your office or, say, the United States Senate and notice a dearth of black men at the top. Women like Ms. Ferraro may quicken their steps and clutch their purses when you walk by, even when you're in your best business suit. Salesfolk at tony department stores may follow you around like a common thief, even though you make enough money to pay the security stalker's salary twice over. You may have thought these things added up to racism. But you are WRONG. Your skin color is an ADVANTAGE, says Ms. Ferraro. Thanks to her, you now know about this asset and can begin using it to take over the world.
Why oh why did Ms. Ferraro wait so long to share this helpful information?
(Taking tongue out of cheek)
Could it be that Pennsylvania is weeks away and Ferraro and her candidate are trying to appeal to working-class white voters, who they think will embrace the idea of an uppity Negro getting privileges because of his race while people like them get screwed?
I tell you, I am offended for my race, Obama AND the voters of Pennsylvania.
