  1. Pretty scary. Lets be realistic here, the USA is a strong enough and mature enough democracy to not be brought down by any single man, even Bush could not do it. Whoever wins will have massive challenges and we need to at some point realize that we are all Americans and need to come together.
    Obama in my opinion will do a better job that McCain

  2. Hey folks,

    Like the “Willie Horton” ad of twenty years ago, the most effective messages that play on racism do it in ways that we mostly do not notice. But it isn’t a code to be heard only by unrepentant racists – it’s a clever psychological trick to play on the unconscious racial attitudes that most of us hold, but few of us are conscious of.

    Want to know more about how it works? Join us on Thursday, October 30, 2 p.m. EST (11 a.m. PST) for a free conference call on race in electoral politics. The call will give an overview of scientific research on implicit bias, a history of how political groups have used it to manipulate us, and some examples of how these tactics are being employed now, how they will continue to corrode our political life, and begin to talk about how to stop that corrosion.
    Speakers will include Maya Wiley, Director of the Center for Social Inclusion, Lynne Wolf, CSI Advocacy Coordinator, and Ludovic Blain, who runs StopDogWhistleRacism.com
