OpenLeft: When’s the Last Time Obama Mentioned “White Privilege” in this Race?

When’s the Last Time Obama Mentioned “White Privilege” in this Race?

You’d think we’d be talking about race a lot.  It’s incredible that an African American is in the lead for the presidency, and a sad commentary that it’s such an unlikelihood in this country.  Obama’s candidacy could be sparking thoughtful conversations about race in every corner of America.

Ok, ok…the Presidential race too rarely sparks thoughtful conversations on anything — why should race be any different?

And I think we’d collectively fall out of our seats if Senator Obama started an earnest dialogue unpacking white privilege.
