Why should we consider black candidates if they are not
allowed to be under the same scrutiny as any other candidates? Anyone who steps into the political arena is savvy
enough to know that life under a microscope just goes with the territory.Surely, the NAACP and Al Sharpton know this
as well.Millions of Caucasians bought
into Martin Luther King's come together messages and marched or
fought for the same dream.But lately, many
are rethinking candidate choices because America has been put on notice that
black candidates are "untouchable" and anything they do is not to be challenged...it is
racist.If you want equality then let it be across
the board.Throughout history, there has
been a long list of political reprobates...who were white;Africa and America have had their share...who were black.Skin color is not a determining factor of
honesty, capability, or culpability.Quit
tearing America apart when it has struggled so hard to come together. Don't be racist!
Note: A good decision is not
always a popular one; however, it is always the right one.
God bless America…and may America deserve it. Zanne Booker 6-28-2012
