Prejudice by any other name

Senator McCain has been forced to defend Obama. He has been forced to say Obama is not a Muslim, that he is a decent family man, that nobody should fear him.

Today I confronted a gal at Curves who said she will write in Hillary Clinton as she can't vote for Obama. She doesn't trust him. She was not happy when I said she can't vote for Obama because he is black. I hope I made her think about it but I doubt I made my point.

I'm sorry but prejudice rules this election. People who won't vote for McCain/Palin because they can't imagine Palin dealing with Putin will not vote for Obama because he is not pure white. As if most of us are. Ugh.
