Barack Obama may be closer to locking up the Democratic nomination for president, but will that be enough to vault him into the White House and into history?
I suspect that there will be many people in America who will vote against Obama because they feel—for whatever reason—that America isn’t ready for a black president. Or perhaps because they are simply racist. I guess you could call this The Good Ol’ Boy Crowd.
I spoke a few years ago with a black lady who was an Air Force service member. She was from Alabama. Does racism still exist in the rural areas of Alabama? I asked her.
Her response: absolutely.
