Sorry, Alan. What YOU are doing is 'perceptually wrong'. Your whole premise is skewed. Rice is not being attacked; her public and oft repeated falsehoods are, by many people of all partisan stripe. The ONLY people that are talking about her race are you partisan hacks who are so racist yourself, you can't see past it to truth and objectivity. It is utterly sickening that you and so many others on the left have stooped to such destructive LIES for your power gain, purposefully exploiting the 'minorities' you claim to support, just for your own political good, NEVER for theirs...or even for the actual good of this country. Shame on you, and shame on your political party.
