Remember when Halle Berry won her Oscar and the media crammed it down our throats that it was a major step for The United Racist States of America? How it was a major milestone for black people? That it somehow proved that we were healing as a nation from Jim Crow?

How come people aren't saying those things about Obama's win last night? Isn't being selected as the top Democrat in a ridiculously white state more groundbreaking than a black actress getting an award from her liberal peers?

I don't get it.

Have you noticed that there are a large number of people on the left who say "I like him, but I won't vote for him because he is not 'electable' in racist America?"

Can you say projection?

Electing a black President will be horrible for the left; it will shatter the idea that America is racist and they will lose a constituency.
