I applaud your honesty while I disagree with your feelings Ray.I think you had the honesty & courage to say what many people are afraid to admit.
That said,as a white person, I too have seen much anti-white...pro-black favoritism while working for the U.S. Government over these many years. Many blacks were held to much easier standards than us white guys when it came to government tests & advancement opportunities. Congress likes to see multi-ethnic faces when they visit the headquarters office of all government agencies. Typically, that's where you'll see many diverse racial & cultural mixes....In the headquarters offices.When you get to the "Real World" of Field Offices.....not so much.
(I was chuckling the other day when I saw all the black Secret Service Agents around John McCain....I'll bet ALL the black agents in the S.Service were assigned to McCain...at his request!....all THREE of them)
That "Fact of Life" being said, I do not believe that having black blood makes you inferior or less capable of greatness than does having any racial background. I think that B. Obama is a far better choice as President, than John McCain. He is much smarter, in touch with the problems of the average citizen & will (hopefully) be one of the great Presidents.
Many people in this country will not be able to rise above racial fears & racial ignorance tomorrow. That is just a sad fact of life & a lost opportunity for our country if we allow ignorance & fear to decide who leads this country again. We tried that in 2000 & again in 2004 & look where we are.
For the sake of your country Ray I urge you to rethink your vote.
