Obama Denounces Controversial Remarks

I'm 51. There's still a lot of scars among my parents generation; scars the white population willing placed upon African Americans and upon themselves because of ingrained prejudice, racism and hate.
Those old ways of thinking among many of that age has not died easily as some of us know from our own family experiences.

I would imagine the feelings of the struggle for basic human rights and equality along with what's still to be done have left some justifiably strong emotions.

I think it's best to remember the words of one of the greatest people, and there were many, of this time.

"Don't ever let anyone pull you so low as to hate them. We must use the weapon of love. We must have the compassion and understanding for those who hate us. We must realize so many people are taught to hate us that they are not totally responsible for their hate. But we stand in life at midnight; we are always on the threshold of a new dawn."
Rev. Martin Luther King

I also think it's approriate to point out that Clinton has only gone part way in denouncing the highly racists comments of Ferraro while McCain still clings to his right-wing religious extremists.

Now lets get the country back to focusing on why Barack Obama is the right choice for all of America.
