Obama: lucky to be black

Via Kos, top Clinton fundraiser Geraldine Ferraro:

If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.

Geez, these days it’s just so hard being white…

A reader responds:

That’s right Geraldine.

If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. He would not have gotten Secret Service protection as early as last May.

If Obama was a white man, CBS.com wouldn’t have temporarily turned off comments on Obama stories because of the volume and persistence of racist comments.

If Obama was a white man, his Secret Service wouldn’t rival that of President Bush’s.

If Obama was a white man, I doubt that the Somali photo would’ve resulted in the Secret Service investigating a right-wing radio show host threatening the Senator’s life.

This is just the publicly available stuff.
