Don't Trust Anyone Over Thirty

The Great White Debate has begun anew with the start of the Democratic convention. As a reader from Andrew Sullivan's site has noted, Sen. Obama doesn't fit into any of the preconceived categories white people have created for blacks. Moreover, the PUMAs (Party Unity My Ass) folk represent that side of the party that cares nothing for advancing the Democratic agenda. It's one thing when a member of the Republican party expresses fear of a black president, it's quite another when members of the party that's supposed to support Sen. Obama won't because he beat their favored candidate in the primaries. It's really stunning to see so much hatred thrown at a man who has done everything he can to unite people. But of course, he's black so we can't trust him.
