In Response To: Re: word/power...but (rasi)
Thanks for the response.
I was referring to the 'voice of resistance' that Bush I and II and Reagan received after their respective military interventions of Grenada, Desert Storm and Iraq. You know, the same loud talking Farrakhan and Sharpton and Tavis Smiley that called Bush a war criminal.
I am curious what the "Final Call" had to say about the bombing.
But Obama's phenotype/race and party shields him from the brunt of otherwise scathing criticism that someone in the same position would have received...namely, a white republican "cowboy".
I would see the same applying to someone like Palin whose gender would be used the same way.
