Things I learned about US politics in the last week or so

It's totally hunky-dory for a white politician to appeal to American racism by basically calling Barack Obama an affirmative action hire, but it's absolutely unforgiveable for a black leader to be angry about the persistent racism which gives that charge it's power.

For extra-super-duper unforgiveability, a black leader could demand moral consistency in America's foreign policy.

It's so nice to live in a society where racism doesn't matter anymore, right? I mean, clearly Barack Obama's candidacy is being judged equally and impartially, and isn't at all being held to a double standard because of his race.
