Sitting 2

Today remains Tuesday, 19 August 2008.

Serves me right for allowing myself to be distracted by the clamour of the canine elements of MoB and quoting from memory, instead of grabbing the citation.

“Douglas” commented on today’s column. I’ll deal with this comment at length, but here’s the reference to the poll:

“In a June ABC News poll, 4 in 10 whites said they "would not feel completely comfortable" with a black president. 3 in 10 admitted to racial prejudice; more may feel it. 57% of whites said they don't think "Obama has sufficient experience to be president." Over half call him "a risky choice for the White House." Since 77% of voters of are white, these numbers matter.”

(This is from an interesting column by Rebecca Curtis, which may be found at: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rebecca-curtis/summer-love-fall-freak-ou_b_119681.html)

The 4 in 10 better get over themselves in a hurry. Soon (and no, I don't have a citation) white folks are not going to be the majority in the United States. Although I have lived the privileged life of a WASP in this country, that day can't come too soon for me.
