Realizing Dr. King's Dream

Let's say someone, a white person, said 'I don't care about the issues. I didn't vote for Obama because he's black.' This person would be excused from polite society, correct?

Well, actor Samuel L. Jackson is claiming he didn't much care about the issues in 2008...he voted for Obama because he's black. As this is a generally understood reality that few are willing to admit, it seems a bit unsavory to express it so starkly. Or maybe his honesty is refreshing.

Judging someone by the content of their character, indeed.

Poor Dr. King. He chose his words so deliberately and uttered them so eloquently only to have them interpreted so recklessly by so many. Thanks for pointing out Mr Jackson's admission and the accompanying silence in our ever racism-alert media.
