Race or Gender

CNN had an awful headline earlier this week, that I saw mentioned by Jeremy. The story basically said black women won’t be voting issues because they’re too set on voting their identity. I guess that makes Edwards the “white male” candidate that he joked about at the debate?

Evidently, CNN caught some flak for that headline, and rightly so. How’s this for a quote from the story:

For these women, a unique, and most unexpected dilemma, presents itself: Should they vote their race, or should they vote their gender?

Yep, good thing the Republicans don’t have to worry about hard questions like that. They only have issues to look at, instead of gender and race.
