Who's that they put on their website next to Obama? Some dangerous, disheveled sheik?
No, it is New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson who today endorsed Senator Obama. That just might be the worse bit of worse bit of racial photo-editing since Time Magazine doctored a photo of OJ Simpson.
Not surprisingly, Richardson's choice of candidate does have something to do with who is more able to address racism.
When it comes down to it, people in this country who suffer from racial marginalization recognize each other and hang together -- at least that is the California experience. We may not see the potential combining of this group with progressive whites come to power this year, but that coalition is our country's future. For the moment, that future belongs to Senator Obama.
