I agree that John McCain should not attend any conference of a group called “National Council of the Race.” In a multiracial society, Rev. Wright’s “rich white folks,” Obama’s “typical white person”, and clingers comments, and the idea of “The Race” will eventually doom us all. And it’s time no one gets a pass any more. The old feeble pleading that “Raza” means something like “people” is bogus. The sad thing is that the organization knows this, and won’t change their name because they obviously want to appeal to a sort of Hispanic racialist pride.
