How racism works

From a friend:

What  if John McCain were a former president of the Harvard Law  Review?
What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom  of his graduating 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 charitable  organization?
What if Cindy McCain graduated from  Harvard?

What if Obama were a member of the  Keating-5?
What if McCain were a charismatic, eloquent  speaker?

If these questions were seriously confronted, do  you really believe the election numbers would be anywhere near  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.

You are The Boss… which team would  you hire?

With America facing historic debt, two wars,  stumbling health care, a weakened dollar, all-time high prison  population, mortgage crises, bank foreclosures,  etc.

Educational  Background:

Obama:
Columbia University – B.A. Political  Science with a Specialization in International  Relations.
Harvard – Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum  Laude

Biden:
University of Delaware – B.A. in History and  B.A. in Political Science.
Syracuse University College of Law  – Juris Doctor (J.D.)

vs.

McCain:
United  States Naval Academy – Class rank: 894 of  899

Palin:
Hawaii Pacific University – 1  semester
North Idaho College – 2 semesters – general  study University of Idaho – 2 semesters –  journalism Matanuska-Susitna College – 1  semester University of Idaho – 3 semesters – B.A. in  Journalism

Now, which team are you going to hire  ?

PS:  and what if Barack Obama had an unwed, pregnant teenage daughter  ….
