Rochelle Riley on Obama

It is SO not about color.

So a (black) columnist goes to Washington to meet with Obama among a group of (black) journalist and declares that Obama ain’t about race. She asks Obama one question. About race.

“As you think about the legacy of this term or the next term, as much as you might accomplish and with all the things you’ve already done, is there anything that’s bittersweet about some people focusing just on the fact that you’re the first person of color to be commander-in-chief and the leader of the free world?”

Everyone else is concerned with race, but Obama is just about running the country.

Interesting.
