Racist Incidents Give Some Obama Campaigners Pause

Racist Incidents Give Some Obama Campaigners Pause

Danielle Ross was alone in an empty room at the Obama campaign headquarters in Kokomo, Ind., a cellphone in one hand, a voter call list in the other. She was stretched out on the carpeted floor wearing laceless sky-blue Converses, stories from the trail on her mind. It was the day before Indiana's primary, and she had just been chased by dogs while canvassing in a Kokomo suburb. But that was not the worst thing to occur since she postponed her sophomore year at Middle Tennessee State University, in part to hopscotch America stumping for Barack Obama.

I respect the fact that he is not making a big deal out the racist things that have happened during his campaign. As a minority, I think your reaction to racism directly relates to how you are treated in the future.

Being the first African-American or minority for that matter, with a real shot at the White House, everyone will be watching how he handles these issues to start a media feeding frenzy. Some people are waiting for him to turn into a mean, nasty insert racial epithet here, so they can confirm their stereotypes that are based upon racist ideology.
