This Just In: Barack Obama is Black

From Slate:

"According to a poll published in March, one in 10 registered voters believes that Barack Obama is a Muslim. He's not—the presumptive Democratic nominee for president is a Christian"

It's an obvious point, and it' s been beaten to near death, but here it is again: Barack Obama is black. All the noise about him being a Muslim, questioning his patriotism, is all a diversion to the fact that he is black. In this day and age you can't say "I won't vote for him because he's black" (well, I suppose you could depending on what state you are from) but you can say "I won't vote for him because he's a Muslim."
