    I think it is time we have a black man as President.

    I think it is time we have a white man as President.

    Both statements are contradictory to a free society where race plays no part in the interaction and operation of the polis.

    Yea, I do. I apply the same standard to everyone - regardless of race, color, creed or gender.

    If one is racist, both are racist. It is you who doesn't 'understand'. No surprise.

    What's the difference? One sentence refers to George Washington, and the other refers to Bill Clinton.

    So if I am reading correctly then all the excitement about BO being the first black president was nothing more then racism?

    Are you trying to say that if it is said that a person votes just because a person is black that is not received differently then if a person votes for a person just because they are white? Or is there a difference between voting for a black person then there is voting for the opponet of a black person who is white?
