Obama and the race debate
Before Obama secured the Democratic presidential nomination in the summer of 2008, people debated whether a black man could win the race. Many people said no, but they didn't necessarily attack him directly. Instead they attacked him through surrogates such as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his wife Michelle.

Here are some postings on these race-related issues:
