No racism during Next Tuesday's Election? McCain, Gimme a break!

Republican presidential candidate John McCain says racism will play virtually no role when voters head to the polls next Tuesday because it will be trumped by the nation's economic problems.
In a transcript of an interview taped for broadcast Wednesday night on CNN's "Larry King Live,"
McCain said people will vote "for the best of reasons, not the worst of reasons." He said most people will vote based on who they want to lead the country.
Referring to people who might vote against Democrat Barack Obama because he is black, McCain added: "It would be a tiny, tiny, minority. Because people are hurting too much now. I mean, they're worried about staying in their homes, keeping their jobs."
Senator McCain, I respectfully ask you to "Gimme a Break," sir. Yes sir!
You don't really believe your statement yourself. During this election you did not campaign for the Black vote--period. Why did you feel it was okay not to? Were you worried about black people hanging onto their homes and jobs as well? I pray you don't think me presumptious but based on your immediate past actions, I surmise that you are a representative of those citizens just like you. Why do i say this? Cuz this is what your rallies reflect in the audience make-up. In actuality, your entire campaign strategy is built on the fear that many Americans have of change in leadership. Do not be dismayed, fearful or worried Senator--Black American people have never met together as a group to figure out how to pay Whites back for the things we've experienced in this country that have been less than ideal. Especially for slavery.
In light of this, please do not insult this country by not acknowledging that racism is alive and well--and headed to the polls.
