The mainstream media can't seem to ever cover the issue of race fairly. To realize that dopes like Diane Sawyer think they have a "gotcha" moment by referring to one out of five white voters in one small state while ignoring the giant elephant in the room of nearly 100% of blacks voting for Barack Obama everywhere else is preposterous.

It would be nice to believe that black Democrats all believe that Sen. Obama is truly the best person for the job. But if that were true, what would the media be saying if white voters were voting for Mrs. Clinton with such giant percentages? The answer is easy: the press would be denouncing a racist white America, a hate-filled electorate of despicable bigots who would dare to vote for someone solely on the color of their skin.

If I announced on my radio show that the only reason I'm voting for John McCain is because he's a white man, I can't imagine I'd have much of a career remaining. Unless my career included appearing at conventions of skinheads and Ku Klux Klansmen.

But once again, biased blacks get a pass. Very few people have the intestinal fortitude to admit that it's a crying shame that so many voters are blindly supporting someone for president because of his skin color. It would be the ultimate act of political incorrectness to point this out. Instead, whites in West Virginia -- and elsewhere -- are demonized as non-educated, racist morons.

It's easy to blame white Americans for just about every single racial conflict in America. But in doing so, we're not making much progress in terms of race relations.

Show me black Democrats who will vote for a candidate based on real qualifications and we'll be getting somewhere.
