    Though he likes to claim that his race was a liability to be overcome, he also surely knew that his race could give him just the edge he needed -- an edge that would never be available to a white, not even a white woman.
    How to turn one's blackness to advantage?
    The answer is that one "bargains."

    Oh yes, being an African-American is so advantageous, generally speaking, for a presidential candidate in these United States. Why, just look at how many times we have elected an African-American as president.

    These are the writers words and not the words of Obama.

    Just thought I would clarify.

    I didn't mean to imply they were. Should've used quotes. Sorry about that.

    You mean being white in Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, etc. is not an advantage?
