A few years ago, I had a gracious white woman tell me in quiet honesty, as we attempted to talk openingly about race relations between blacks and whites, and why Sunday was still the most segregated day of the week, she said, "What most whites fear and especially white males is that if we allow you to have any kind of power in making decisions over us, you will do to us what we have done to you." I believe that when most white Obama supporters see pictures of him with his maternal white grand parents, and they found out his mother was white, this,unfounded fear of retaliation, gives way to a willingness to listen to him as a highly intelligent presidential candidate, who is worth all of our consideration. And since he's not to dark, many believe he is less threatening. By the way, my grand mother was half white, but it still doesn't make me or most African American's less black. But I think, if we did a DNA check on many whites, the reverse would also be true. No one in America is 100% anything. Ask Vice President Cheney who has recently been found through DNA testing, to be a distant cousin of Senator Barack Obama.
