Let me say right off that I am not and never have been a racist. I do not hate President Barack Obama or anybody else, but I couldn’t let Kathleen Parker’s column in the Sept. 3 Advocate go unchallenged.
She asks if Obama had been white, would he have been elected or re-elected? I believe he would never have been nominated! Can you imagine the Democratic Party nominating a white person who had an undistinguished career in his state Legislature, served only two years in the U.S. Senate with no significant accomplishments and had no administrative experience?
He was nominated only because of his skin color, and the media was reluctant to address this. They let the electorate down by not examining his qualifications.
