An disturbing quote

I hope that there aren't very many people who share this woman's attitude:

"Had Barack had a white wife, I would have thought twice about voting for him," Johnson Cooper said.

I found it in this article. Frankly, I'm curious about her voting habits. Does she abstain from voting in races in which all the candidates have Caucasian spouses?

Robert, you're missing the point. The slight wasn't against caucasian women, it was against black men who choose to marry white women.

I do understand that the comment was against interracial marriage. I was just wondering if the woman who I quoted would have voted for a white man who was married to a white woman over a black man married to a white woman.

A lot of black women seem to be peeved that black men choose white women. People vote for strange reasons (I once had a friend who refused to vote for Kerry because according to the friend, Kerry had "scary" eyes) and despite politicians being human, most people want them to be thisclose to sainthood. Would I vote for a guy who could save our country, bring about peace and prosperity for the world and make things better, even though he had tattoos, piercings and wore Ed Hardy shirts? Yeah, but I'd be rolling my eyes as I did.
