Not sure of the source as I received it via email but:

What if things were switched around? Think about it…

Would the country’s collective point of view be different?
Ponder the following:

What  if Obama had paraded five children across the  stage, including
a three month old infant and an  unwed, pregnant teenage daughter?

What if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law Review?
What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating
class?

What if McCain had only married once, and Obama was a divorcee?

What if Obama had had a long affair while
he was still married?

What if Michelle Obama was the  wife who not only became addicted to pain
killers but also acquired them illegally through her  charitable
organization?

What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?

What if Obama was the one who had  military experience that included
discipline problems and a record of crashing seven  planes?

What if Obama was the one who was known  to display publicly, on many
occasions, an anger management problem?

What if Michelle Obama’s family had made their money from beer distribution?

What if the Obamas had adopted a white child?

You could easily add to this list.  If these questions reflected reality,
do you really  believe the election numbers would be as close as they  are?

This is what racism does. It covers up,  rationalizes and minimizes
positive qualities in  one candidate and emphasizes negative qualities  in
another when there is a color  difference.
