If you want top break things down the way MSNBC does in its every effort to perpetuate the racial divide by the way in which it inteprets pllos and prompts "certain" questions you would be prone to believe the race is over.

I mean a candidate winning the African American vote and the Hispanic vote, the two largest "minority" groups in America can't possibly lose in November.

At the same time of course they failt to interpret nor report on the fact that if this were true that America has "in fact" now as a demographic of power been lost by "whites". Is this the change they are referring. The end of a "minority" struggle against a powerful "white" monopoly on power in America.

Finally, I guess we then can repeal every single liberal affirmative action or quota throughout society now that the field is level. I mean how could there be an inbalance if an African-American wins by securing some 80% of the so-called "minority" vote in America.

Seems to me if this is true and MSNBC wished to go a bit further they would uncover that the liberal legislation in effect now runs contrary to reality and is in fact no longer required in America.

Or will the result of the shift in power sinmply be to add more programs to further benefit the "old" theories behind affirmative action and such. Per MSNBC own admission they will make this a "cultural" struggle daring anyone on the other side to take the bait and speek out against Obama and his supporters.
