Eileen writes to the SRC:
I have both Hillary 08 and Barack 08 buttons on the visor in my car. Recently I picked up my friend’s 10-year-old boy from his baseball game. After buckling up and settling in, he asked, “Do you want Hillary or Barack to win?” I’m not sure, I said. I like them both for different reasons.
“Well, I’ve thought about it a lot,” he said. “And I want Barack to win because I think racism is worse than womanism in this country.”
At age 10 he’s given the upcoming election more thought than most people I know.
Well, bloggers, what do you think? Is racism worse than womanism in this country? Could this ten-year-old be expressing — so innocently and purely — the great unspoken taboo that underlies current presidential election reporting? I look forward to reading your analysis.
