Just like how I might not have supported Hillary as much if not for her gender. But those things are more like sprinkles on top.

Now that he is supporting Obama he is conspiratorial nigger to whites, and a man that is down with his peeps to blacks.<BR/><BR/><BR/>This is such a powerfully accurate statement. I can't imagine the tremendous pressure to phrase eveything just so.

His decision was based on a careful, reasoned weighing of each candidate. I hope to attain his wisdom of speech one day.<BR/><BR/>So how the f$#@ can people say that he's voting based on race?

If all things were equal I may have voted for Hilary but they were not satisfactory for me, but if they were I would have taken the woman.

The first is what you point out about whites never being accused of <I>only</I> endorsing a white candidate because of race. <BR/><BR/>The other is that white politicians that endorse Obama are pretty much ignored because they can't use race as a reason.
