The first female running mate bashes the first black candidate

I just want to echo the sentiments of this post:
"Any time anybody does anything that in any way pulls this campaign down and says let's address reality and the problems we're facing in this world, you're accused of being racist, so you have to shut up," Ferraro said. "Racism works in two different directions. I really think they're attacking me because I'm white. How's that?"

How's that? It's insipid and petulant. It mocks the very real racism that has dogged Obama on this campaign (and don't think that there hasn't been any) and makes light of the very real culture of racism that affects every black person in America.

Fortunately, Ferraro has stepped down from her position in the Clinton campaign.
