Additionally, are you going to make a supportive argument, maybe provide some sources for your statements. Or are you just going to state them as if your opinion is fact? Its egotistical and petty, to think that all it takes to settle an issue is your word is extremely egotistical. No thats your opinion, not fact, and to have an intelligent or at least well formed opinion you need facts and arguments to back it up.
Now I can't speak for anyone other than myself, something I know you can't do because you constantly speak for others by lumping and generalizing them using terms like "The left" as if it has a clear meaning as to who belongs and doesn't belong. But anyway speaking for myself, race isn't an issue, I don't give a damn about it, its entirely meaningless to me. I don't care what color any President or Presidential candidate is, and since I don't have a personal stake in any candidate being elected, AND I have a little dignity about myself, I wouldn't seek to make race an issue in any political contest to get more votes.
