    Having Sowell on there is antithetical to his body of work. He wrote extensively on the audacity of intellectuals thinking they could do it better than others. Sowell is an observant intellectual, not a politician.

    If they voted for him purely on the basis of race, then yes. However, the majority of blacks have voted for democrats for close to 50 years now. And, in all of the presidential elections, the person they were voting for was white. That seems to indicate that his political beliefs, and not solely his race, influenced their decision.

    Hence, not racism.

    If race didn't matter, he wouldn't have asked who our next "black" president would be, but rather, who we would be likely to vote for. Nice try, though.

    So his outside appearance is black but internally he's white...

    So you're suggesting he's Wayne Brady?

    Wouldn't that at least make him half black since his outsides black? Half Black is enough from what I've been told with Obama. Plus we get the bonus of having Iron Man in our back pocket, lets see how crazy Kim Jong Il wants to get after that.

    In all seriousness though, I think its a bit ridiculous to suggest voting for someone simply because they're black. I do like Walter E. Williams views a great bit, Condi and Powell would both be interesting choices due to ideology, and god help us if Sharpton or Jackson ever held any kind of major office.

    Though I'd love to see Jackson standing in the senate with his pants down looking at all the republicans telling them to Apologize.....

    You've got Wayne Brady pegged all wrong.

    Probably NSFW.

    No vote; bigotry, racism is not my game.
    The INTERNET is great; a lot of good is exposed, but a lot of bad as well...
    This sewer thread belongs in the "basement".

    But he wasn't asking who, out of a mixed racial group, would be our president. He asked for "Your Choice for a Black President". There's nothing racially biased about that.
