Is Race a Roadblock that Barack Obama Has to Overcome?

Is Race a Roadblock that Barack Obama Has to Overcome? A new poll shows race will be a factor for a large number of voters this November. BET’s Ed Gordon talks about the effect of the “Black Tax” on Sen. Barack Obama’s strategy with Maggie Rodriguez.

I don’t understand the timing of these polls. Why would anyone take the time to take this poll? Senator Obama can do nothing about the color of his skin, and this poll is not surprising for many in Black America! Keep on pushing Senator Obama we have your back!

  1. Okay, I’m white and I’ve been an Obama supporter from the beginning. Some older white guys are surprised that I back Barack. Younger folks don’t worry so much about the color of your skin.
    What worries me in this election is the GOP using tactics like “caging” in Michigan and Virginia. The electoral map is going to be very close, one or two states will narrowly decide this thing. We have to do everything we can to make sure that every voice is heard, and every vote is counted.

  2. Thanks for your insight Kurt!
