    In fact, it is he who has "shown his cards".

    He intends to make his race a big issue in his campaign.

    His strategy may work against him.:applause:

    By bringing it up, isn't he the one trying to invoke the race issue? I have many reasons to not vote for Barack Obama. The fact that he's black doesn't even enter the equation.

    I was offered tickets to go see Robbie Knievel - Evel's son, go jump over 500 Obama supporters. It was the most exciting one foot jump I have ever seen!

    So, has anyone heard why he is black instead of white? Relax c4k I'm asking a serious question not trying to raise problems :laugh: I don't like him as a candidate for way enough reasons to worry about bringing up another.

    I've seen interviews of mixed children and their reasoning for picking one side or the other and just was wondering.

    Wondering minds want to know.

    3 in 10 admit to feelings of racial prejudice, many not comfortable with McCain's age

    As Sen. Barack Obama opens his campaign as the first African American on a major party presidential ticket, nearly half of all Americans say race relations in the country are in bad shape and three in 10 acknowledge feelings of racial prejudice, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

    ...

    At the same time, there is an overwhelming public openness to the idea of electing an African American to the presidency. In a Post-ABC News poll last month, nearly nine in 10 whites said they would be comfortable with a black president. While fewer whites, about two-thirds, said they would be "entirely comfortable" with it, that was more than double the percentage of all adults who said they would be so at ease with someone entering office for the first time at age 72, which McCain (R-Ariz.) would do should he prevail in November.

    So I guess thats why as a biracial man he calls himself black and not white. Helps make him more likely to be elected president.
