How far does America still have to go to bridge its centuries-old racial divide? Liz Sidoti answers the question:
Even in 2009, a black man cannot become president of the United States without some knuckleheads sending stupid emails about him.
To be sure, America has made some racial progress. But the dream of equality will not be truly and fully realized until President Obama's political detractors treat him with the same respect George W. Bush's detractors showed him.
With the same "respect" Bush's detractors showed him? You mean calling him "Chimpy McHalliburton" and "Bushitler", and that sort of thing?
Personally, I have the hope that, as much as I despise Obama's politics, Obama's detractors will treat him with a LOT more respect than Daily Kos and Huffington Post treated President Bush.
