When it comes down to it, the future will naturally be less racist as the older voting blocks of both sides of the political isle die off, and that includes both the racists and race-card pullers. Are there racial undertones to this election? Sure. Is the election about race? I do not believe it is. It's about values, beliefs, and the ability to leave the power of choice to the individual.

Case in point: The large, multi-national corporation I work for is much a reflection of the stereotypical make-up of the country: half men, almost outnumbered by an equal number of women, a few blacks, several Hispanics (they outnumber blacks), and we have both weaker and stronger personality types and talents across the board. Some work harder, others slack in their work. Power at the top is Boomer white males with an increasing number of women and at least one Asian, and the international arms are made up of all kinds: Indians, for one example. This is the future. These will be companies many citizens will work for in the future, and as the make-up of America changes, I would imagine this will also be seen in the small business arena. (The man who cut my hair on a trip to Chicago was an Egyptian immigrant, who, in fact, didn't disagree with me when we talked about the decline of America being the loss of manufacturing.) When my company couldn't get a few things done locally due to local laws, they set up separate operations in another state. Another example: One day, while on break, an individual cracked a racist joke without knowing there was a black employee in the vicinity. This was reported to management and the joke-cracker, who was a relatively good worker, was promptly fired.

The current crop of Democrats are fighting against a tide that has long since passed with social ideas of the past. Whiners are going to whine. Blacks (and all people) who take advantage of the opportunities presented to them are getting ahead. End of story. Black conservatives like Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams are showing up in my local paper that caters to the mostly-white city of mine. Black conservatives, we need you.

* While the above post is the 100% opinion of C-D's budgetlord, I will add a few articles for reference:
