OBAMA WINS NO MATTER WHAT
CATEGORY: PJ Media

My latest Pajamas Media column is up and I guarantee controversy.

I take a look at Barack Obama’s candidacy and place it in some historical perspective:

An extraordinary statistic jumped out of the jumble of numbers and percentages that pulled me up short and caused me to reflect on the past as well as the future. In the exit polls from the Democratic party primary in Georgia, nestled in with indicators of age, income, and religion was the vote cast by white males. When you think about it, this is startling:

Vote by Sex and Race Clinton Edwards Obama

White Men (16%)

Clinton – 48%
Edwards – 6%
Obama – 45%

Within Obama’s lifetime, a black man in Georgia has gone from being prevented from exercising his right to vote to capturing a near majority of the sons and grandsons of his former oppressors in a run for the highest office in the land.

I suppose it’s no big thing for many younger Americans who weren’t born and raised with the idea that there were limits inherent in the American political system that would prevent a black man from achieving what Mr. Obama has achieved. It is a shameful thing to believe in those limits – bred to it by history and circumstance as we of my generation were.

Read it all before commenting please.

    Why can’t he be judged for what he thinks, whatever that is, and not how he looks. When is this ‘White Guilt’ going to stop. How long???

    Great column, Rick.

    The upside for Republicans should Obama win the Presidency is he would be their best argument for getting rid of affirmative action.

    GOBAMA!

    Georgia has gone from being prevented from exercising his right to vote
    to capturing a near majority of the registered Democratic
    party sons and grandsons of his former oppressors and the sons of some who
    fought in ways small and large to overthrow the oppressions
    in a run for the highest office in the land.

    I suppose it’s no big thing for many

    It would be extraordinary if the white male Republican voters
    of any state could be said to have cast their votes in this manner.
     As a white, male, southern Democrat, I can assure you that
    there is nothing extraordinary about my casting a vote for a black
    candidate in preference to white candidate.  It happens all
    the time.

    I also stand in awe of this. After attending high school in NC in the 70’s I am amazed at the changes. I remember the true racism, and the very real Klan.

    A black man running for President back then? People would have scoffed.

    It truly does amaze me and please me that things have come so far.

    Rick,
    I am a white, evangelical, conservative, male from the south. I think post-modern liberalism is a curse and a disease on our republic. I would love to see it vanquished. And yet, I must admit that when I have pondered myself the things that you mention in regard to Mr. Obama, there is an inner glee and excitement, a joy inside that makes me smile. It is an indication that King’s dream has indeed arrived. Surely this glee must be tempered by the realities of our disintegrating national identity, but it is something that no matter where your politics reside we all can and should celebrate. Thanks for your insights. Cheers!
