Re: “Obama courts Tar Heel support

Why is it that every so-called controversy that come from the Obama camp stays in the news for weeks and sometimes months but when it is McCain or Clinton it dissipates within days. Why is Obamas so-called controversies covered by the media on average much longer than the other two candidates? Every time you turn around someone from the Clinton's camp or supporters are continually injecting race into the election. The calls in NC directed only at Blacks Adelfa Callejos comment Obamas problem is that he happens to be black. and Hillarys response to that comment when asked if she denounces Callejos comment People have every reason to express their opinions. Hillarys insulting, imitating slow Black drawl when speaking at an Black church. To some White Americans these things may not be insulting but to those who are honest with themselves, they will see this as racism plain and simple. There are those that were looking for any excuse not to vote for Obama and the Wright incident is perfect for them. The Wright controversy has been in the news for months now, can you name me a controversy from any of the other candidates that has been in the news for more than a few days? Why is the issue of race continually injected into this election? Most Black people knew that it was going to be an issue but not to the extent that it has played so far. Many White Americans will not or refuse to see it. Even though Clinton is the most unpopular of the 3 remaining presidential candidates she is still in the race. Why? Is it because Obama is black? If Obama were White (he is half White) with Clintons unpopularity he would have won the nomination long ago. Many will not vote for Obama because he is Black (his skin color) but he has transcended race, age, gender, and religious barriers. Many thought he would never make it this far and I praise the ones (white Americans) who supported Obama despite his skin color. You have shown me that there is hope in this country for all Americans. Thank you. Now lets send a message to the racist of the world that we as Americans can look past the color of a mans skin and elect him as president. GOD Bless!
