Don't tell us how black voters vote

I looked at the headline in the paper the day after the South Carolina Democratic primary: "Black vote lifts Obama." Why is that an issue? Is this really about his race or the race of those who vote for him?

I've never seen white Americans being questioned for voting for white candidates, nor have I seen the question raised "How many white Americans will not vote for Obama simply because he is black?"

Let's focus on the issues and judge the man on his beliefs and his character. Don't insult black Americans by suggesting that we only endorse a candidate because his skin is the same color as ours. I support Obama because I feel that he is the best candidate -- period!
