Its not so much racism as it is race support. Many people are going to vote for Obama because of his race but many people are going to vote for Mccain for the same reason. Many voted for Hillary in the primaries because she was a woman. I would hope that this type of voting is a vast minority(no pun intended). If someone votes for a candidate based solely on race or gender they are making a rather unintelligent move. I agree that it is unfortunate that the independent voters do not see much if any air time. My thoughts on Obama being our next president are incredulous at best. I guess I will be able to admit it when the time comes.
