OK, there is a lot of chatter out there about the Nobel Peace Prize being a racial issue. O supporters say opposition is racist. Some O opposers say it could be an affirmative action award.
To all these people, I say, "bunk!"
The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to men and women of all races, nationalities, colors, creeds and religions. Here is a brief list of just some of the winners:
Kim Dae Jung
Ang San Suu Kyi
Martin Luther King
Seriously, now. Does that look like a non-diverse group? There is NOTHING racial - in ANY way - about the selection. There should be nothing racial about the analysis.
Obama did not win for being black. He did not win for being the first black President. You can think his win makes a mockery of the prize without being a racist. You can believe he has done nothing to deserve the award without being racist.
It's funny... all the "experts" out there said the election of Obama ushered in a post-racial era. Now Obama wins a PEACE prize, supposedly for showing the potential of all of us gettin' along, and people from all directions are bringing race into it.
