Reader: Race-baiting campaign flier on par with rats in a sewer
Yesterday, we wrote about a campaign flier that opposed a voting-rights bill by implying that it would hurt white people by altering or erasing two African Americans from the photo it repurposed. The post left one reader exasperated but not exactly surprised.
When will it end ? As a female African American, I can't help but notice at the advent of the Obama administrations legacy, every racial issue known to man has unveiled itself. It's painful to say the least, and while I do wish for earlier days of naivete and politically correct behavior...these past four years and the next four are bound to be even more educational...or the equivalent of exposing rats in a sewer.
