Will Race Be The Deciding Factor?

Now that Sen. John McCain has received the proverbial "bounce" he's leading in many of the new polls for President of the United States over Sen. Barack Obama.

Most African American are well aware that race will be the deciding factor in this race, but the national media will typically skirt around the issue. Dick Polman writes about the issue in the Philadelphia Inquirer. He writes correctly that Obama has a major dilemma in not appearing too angry when criticized, and that he still has the issue of dispelling "white suspicions" about him.

The bottom line though is the only reason that this race is close is because Barack Obama is African American. It's an unfortunate truth that we have to accept.
