This morning, I woke up to see Pamela Gentry’s post on Magic Johnson’s endorsement of Clinton. The comments show how utterly uninformed people are. There was one comment in there that I had to reply to, so I did. Unfortunately, it didn’t post. It’s been about 6 hours and still not posted (awaiting moderation it says). So I’ll post it here. The comment I’m replying to read:
Why do people persist in downing Hilary Clinton? If you actually faced facts she has done alot of good. You can’t blame her for what her husband has done. Do you really think we will have a black president with all this racial tension we already have? Do you really think white upperclass americans will actually go for that. They would rather vote on a woman than a man of race. I’m not saying that he would not be a good candidate but I rather go for experience, just like a job. If you went after a good job and didn’t have the experience for what they needed would you get the job? No you wouldn’t they would look to someone who has some experience. If Obama was not running who would you vote for then? Think about it, stop putting race as a factor look beyond the skin.
Gaaaah! Yeah, it made my brain hurt and that’s the level of quality of most of the comments on that blog:
