Voting based on skin color is racist!

Letter to the Editor

Obama campaign co-chair Jesse Jackson Jr. has been pressuring black delegates to vote for Obama because he’s black saying, “Do you want to go down in history as the one to prevent a black from winning the White House?” The way I see it Jesse Jackson Jr. is a racist. He’s saying that Obama can’t win based solely on his own accomplishments and needs an affirmative action vote to help the poor black man along. Can you imagine a white co-chair suggesting that people vote for Clinton or McCain because they are white? Racism is racism whether it comes from whites or blacks and if you are voting based on skin color you are a racist. Shame on you Jesse Jackson Jr.!
