Nice Try

Dear Former Congressman Tancredo:
I had the pleasure of seeing you on today's "Ed Show" during which you were
asked to explain your remark about sending President Obama back to Kenya.
It was interesting to see you try to lay the remark at the feet of the First
Lady. Nice try but no dice.
Your remark was clearly either racist or race baiting. Having recently done
some research into the prevalent attitudes regarding race and the
President's race, it has become clear to me that those who claim not to care
one way or the other about the President's race are lying to me and to
themselves; racist attitudes still affecting the way people see others
whether they seem to have grown out of their attitudes or not. You, sir,
are no different.
Your comment was outrageous, disrespectful and certainly not as harmless as
you would like to make us believe. You are playing to those deep-seated and
deeply covered fears that you know people still have regarding race. It is
cheap and dirty to play on such fears to further a political agenda -
unless, of course, the agenda is to return this country to a pre-civil
rights state.
Yours truly,
Susan Preiss
