We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run,” said the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. “They’re going to try to make you afraid. They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. ‘He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?’

Yep! This is politics as usual.

Both liberals and Democrats both White and Black in the media and in the blogosphere from DAY ONE of Obama’s campaign have been putting out commentary after commentary asking the question “ISHEBLACKENOUGH?—->

>—> States like West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and others in the final stretch of this campaign that did not go for Obama IN THE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY were quickly dismissed by other Democrats as states that were full of “racist” Whites who would never vote for a Black man. Again, this was directed towards other Democrats by Democrats. Some Democrats even joked about the educational levels of Democrats that voted for Hillary in those states. —->

>—>The Clintons were the first in this campaign to play the race card and got hammered for it. Many within the Democratic fold who once religiously supported the Clintons now dismiss them as racists—>

>—>Now in order to solidify UNITY within the Democratic part, Hillary Clinton (the race-baiting, card playing “White” candidate) is seriously being considered to be Obama’s running mate—>

>—> A Democratic operative (Larry Johnson, supporter of Hillary Clinton) starts the rumor about a video tape showing Michelle Obama saying “Whitey” several times. Bob Beckel goes on Fox to fuel the speculation.—->END?

Given this track record, I think Obama should be directing his concerns to his own party—FIRST!
