Racism doesn't exist in a void. When compared to situations outside of our country, there are worse. Both Welsh and I brought up Europe because Racism is pretty much a mainstay of racially diverse societies. Other than Canada. I'd be the first to admit America has racial issues a-pleanty. Chicago is one of the most segregated cities on the continent for crying out loud. That doesn't mean that we are much worse when compared to other countries, or that we warrant specific attacks from societies with the same problems. You are looking at it from a Euro perspective trying to look at it from an African-American perspective. Sorry. I know more about the African-American perspective than you do. I think as much/more work needs to be done in the white community to help unite the country than in the black community. African-Americans generally understand whites, whites don't usually understand African Americans. He attended Wright's church in an effort to connect with the African American community. His speaking style is modeled on African American preachers. His wife is African American. His children are African American. He lives in a very diverse part of the city (that I lived in until recently) that has a huge African American population. Why on earth do you think he doesn't connect? And if he doesn't, why is he getting 90%+ of the African American vote against Hillary? Then why has Hillary lost the African American vote so dramatically? Why did Bill compare Obama's win in Mississipi and Virginia to Jesse Jackson's win there? They have been hemherogging African American votes. For a good reason; there is a viable black canidate. Same is true for both of them, though Bill did it with style. There is a famous book out here called Liberal Fascism that compares the Clintonite super-technocratic, super-partisan style of politics to Fascism. I think it is silly. Doesn't mean I think Clintonism is a good thing.
