  • What Defines a Man?

    Posted by Shannon Love on July 30th, 2009 (All posts by )

    While reading this articlee [h/t Instapundit] a thought gelled that had been forming in my mind throughout the Gates affair.

    It appears that for leftists in America today, Obama is still more defined by being black than he is by being the President of the United States. They seem to assume that we all should see him as a black man before we see him in any other role. What more can a person possibly accomplish before others see him as just an individual defined by his accomplishments? He has attained the highest office in the most powerful country the world has ever seen, yet they still see his skin color first and foremost.

    Sadly, Obama seems to see himself that way too.

    We still have a lot of work to do.

      That is also true for some right wingers.
