Obama's Triumph

In class today, someone spoke of Obama's lack of popularity in Texas as resulting from his blackness. Immediately and vociferously, a chorus of opinions joined against him. This would likely not have happened a year ago, much less six months ago. I suppose that's something of which Obama can be proud. If nothing else, he has effectively demolished the excuses (1) of black folk who claim such infinite discrimination as to prevent them from achieving, and (2) of white folk who perceive such intense racism on the part of lesser enlightened white folk as to prevent blacks from achieving.
