    The first poll option should be "Society should NOT mention race..." Sorry.
    Using the race card is worse. The reason being is it dilutes responses to real racism. It is very much akin to the story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf. Indeed using the race card can lead to the second half of your question.

    People need to learn that just because race is mentioned it does not automatically equal racist/racism. Even if it is negative, provided the negative is provable and legitimate.

    Since this was before I was born and wasn't there when he was, I don't know where Obama was born. I only know where I was born by hearsay records.
