Obama and stereotypes

June 19, 2008

Re "Obama scolds wayward fathers," June 16

I find it ironic that while those opposed to Barack Obama argue that he's inexperienced, irresponsible, Muslim and anti-American based on false stereotypes, Obama turns around and gives a speech using the same stereotypes about black men in an effort to endear himself to women and working-class whites.

As a black man, I want nothing more than to see Obama sworn in as president, as his presidency will serve to dispel many myths about black men. I hope and pray that he doesn't use those same stereotypes to do harm. Theron K. Cal
