Talking about race and American politics…

I don’t usually link to my Patch columns, but this week I am because I want to get your take on it.  The column raises questions about race and politics and Obama and whites and the media.   I’m not talking about whether Obama has been a good president or should be re-elected.  I’m just talking about how we don’t talk about race.

The column is headed The Race Card Is In The Deck-It’s Dishonest Not to Play It.  Go read it.  Tell me what you think.

A warning: if you choose to read the thirty-plus comments–and mostly I have not–know that those who speak loudest are in the minority.  The rational ones respond to me in email.
