I am appalled by one of the people interviewed for a story that was broadcast on today’s episode of “Morning Edition.”
In the story, Steve Inskeep provided a clip of an interview from Tina Graham, a Virginian and Democrat who doesn’t support McCain but also doesn’t think she can bring herself to vote for Obama.
She said: “Until [Obama] was nominated to run for president, I never really thought about whether or not that I was racist, or however you want to put it…It’s just the fact that I think that he will represent [African Americans] in what they want and in what they need and stuff, and forget about — you know, they’re his people, they’re his race.”
Hey, Tina, the question is answered. Guess what? You are a racist! Thanks for playing.
