This was an email that was circulating around my office; I thought it deserved a spot.

Obama/Biden vs McCain/Palin, what if things were switched
around?…..think about it.

Ponder the following:

What if the Obamas had paraded five children across the stage,
including
a three month old infant and an unwed, pregnant teenage
daughter?

What if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law
Review?
What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his
graduating class?

What if McCain had only married once, and Obama was a divorcee?

What if Obama was the candidate who left his first wife after a
severe
disfiguring car accident, when she no longer measured up to his
standards?

What if Obama had met his second wife in a bar and had a long
affair while
he was still married?

What if Michelle Obama was the wife who not only became addicted
to pain
killers but also acquired them illegally through her charitable
organization?

What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?

What if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five?
(The Keating Five were five United States Se nators accused of
corruption
in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the
larger Savings
and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s.)

What if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker?
What if Obama couldn’t read from a teleprompter?

What if Obama was the one who had military experience that
included
disc ipline problems and a record of crashing seven planes?

What if Obama was the one who was known to display publicly, on
many
occasions, a serious anger management problem?

What if Michelle Obama’s family had made their money from beer
distribution?

What if the Obamas had adopted a white child?

You could easily add to this list. If these questions reflected
reality,
do you really believe the election numbers would b e as close as
they are?

This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and
minimizes
positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative
qualities in
another when there is a color difference.
