Paul Street in “Power Served, Millions Betrayed” presents the reality of Obama’s conservative neoliberal ideology and takes on the personality-cultish, propaganda-spun good will so many progressives still cling to regarding Obama:
There is, of course, one group of Americans who have clearly not been thrown under the bus by Barack Obama: the very predominantly white corporate and financial elite. Read below the fold...

One of the themes that has developed during the Occupy movement has been the involvement (or lack thereof) of people of color. Chris Hedges described the suspicion among some in the minority community this way:

Tonight's Tom Ashbrook on a local public channel topic was the primaries in light of race and class. The discussion turned around Obama vs Clinton with respect to race and the lower class. First, guys wake up, race is not black and white only. We have more brown than black now. Second, guys there is the issue of sex also and it is not less important than the other two mentioned issues.
Ms. Newman from the LAT demonstrated again that most journalist are born without an intellect. According to her: Clinton "brings" the white lower class. If she is right, the Obama won California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, etc. She did however mention women, but accordingly they became an issue only the last month. Read below the fold...

MSNBC* has some footage up of a panel discussion about race. Without judging the relative merits of those who share their views, I was struck by two things: one, we're still fucking up the children who so many of us say must be cherished, and two, the negative issues of race and ethnicity will not vanish without a whole lot of work. Perhaps they never will, but that is no excuse to not address these issues and attempt to build a better world "for the children."

Part 4 of Misogyny, Sexism, & the Gender Gap in the 2008 Election
In choosing a nominee, the Democratic Party will not merely be deciding who deserves to win, or who would make the best candidate. It will also be a decision about which poisoned landscape the Party wishes to compete upon --- one in which toxic wildflowers of misogyny and sexism are in full bloom, or one in which the poisonous weed of racism is a constant part of the environment, and needs the merest watering to completely despoil the land.

This bit of white entitlement has been widely cited as evidence of the horrible opportunism of the Obama campaign, but actually it shows something rather sad about some of the opposition to Obama.
First, let's note that the publisher of the Wilentz piece is notorious for its use as a "liberal" place to attack the left left and here for its hyping of Bush's war and so on. Read below the fold...

So I was babbling recently about race and being "mixed," and I wanted to share a couple thoughts I had while at the grocery store. You can't do anything publically in America and not have a 'race moment,' if you're non-/not all/less the fully white. Read below the fold...
