It’s clear that if black and a white Democratic candidates face each other in a Democratic city, all hell breaks loose. It happened in Atlanta last year in the mayor’s race. Blacks reacted with a “black agenda” memo that was universally condemned. White candidate Mary Norwood led the general election but later lost in a runoff.

Something similar is happening in Barack Obama’s Chicage. Black Democrats have published incendiary flyers calling Irish pols “massa” and “overseer,” and characterizing blacks aligned with the Irish pols as “boy” and “house nigga.” Nice to see how much progress Barack Obama made in quelling racial tension as a community organizer, state legislator and alleged author.
