My answer to a racist voter
Advertisements [?]At work, i'm trying to convince everyone to vote for Obama. I'm a democrat, and Barack is truly a Democrat.
anyway, when I had stripped every reason to vote for McCain
from this guy who works at the track, but is not a union member, he finally came right out and told me he wasn't voting for the black guy. This discussion took place in front of 5 other white men.
I then asked if he would answer a hypothetical question for me. "If your son was hospitalized and, for what ever reason, the only one who could save his life was a black man, would you deny your son the opportunity that might save his life?" After a long pause and no answer, I said to him, "that's why I'm supporting Obama for President."
