Election has always been about race

November 3, 2012 

Thank you, John Sununu! Finally, someone had the courage to talk about the elephant in the room. This election is about race; it always has been.

Barack Obama is lazy (Sununu); he's not a real American (Donald Trump); he's all shuck and jive (Sarah Palin); he's not one of us. Now the real choice is clear: The elephant is still in the room.

How will you choose? Can we finally bury racism, once and for all? Can we vote for integrity or still cloak our prejudice in rhetoric?

If you listen to your conscience, the choice is clear.
